Why do people always put the blame on the point guards. With Jose & Jack, the point guard position gave you 23 pts per game & 11 assists per game. You know where the Raptors were completely beat game after game last year, the wing position. Would you pick a young Lindsey Hunter at 13? Go for the best player available?

Stats mean little to nothing if your PG can't defend his position and gives up more pts then he gets. Our PG defense is probably our biggest weakness imo. Yeah pick the best player available, and imo the best players for us to get if available are Bradley or Bledsoe. IMHO

With the exception for teams like Boston, Utah, Denver, our point guards did a pretty good job with the competition. Its the wing position where our team lost the battle on a nightly basis. You have a right to your opinion if you think Bradley or Bledsoe is best player avaible. However, the draft is all about trends. With the success of KG, Kobe, and McGrady, teams were picking alot of high players (look at the Kwame, Chandler, Curry, Diop draft). Then with the success of Gasol, Dirk, AK47, teams were drafting alot of Europeans in the first round. I hope BC doesn't pick Bradley after the success of such players like Russell Westbrook, Rajon Rondo (Super athletic 6'3 or 6'4 defensive minded pgs with little college success). I'm hoping Udoh drops to 13.

Our pgs played like crap against competition. How many 20 point or 10 assist games did either Jose or Jack have this season? How many of those statlines did they give up this season? You can't have 2 backups switching between the starting role. One of the point guards has to go, preferably Jose. You should of seen how even role playing point guards tore up Jack and Jose night to night on a consistent basis. No position should be considered untouchable.

Jose nets more points scored on the floor as opposed to Jack(who nets more points lost on the floor than scored) Just saying, but I totally agree.
