Brandon Knight and Kemba Walker = Jerryd Bayless.


Doing some research on Jonas I am actually starting to like him. I thought he was some weak ass center but he is pretty good, he addresses the teams needs.

Check out this video,

i guess this means we're locked into Calderon for now. i had hopes that a pick of knight or walker might mean he's on his way out. that said, i like valanciunas' game. i hope he can spend the next year or two filling out into a man.

If he stays overseas for 2 years I'm not going to be happy. I'm not going to be quick to judge, but when I read my text messages when I was balling an hour ago, I was about to lose it. Then I watched some of his hilites and saw some good qualities, so I'll wait and see.

95% of the Raptors nation is probably losing their mind right now though

he compares himself to Bosh but then he says i don't know how i'm like bosh, LOL

i hope thats just because he can't express himself in english so thats why he said i don't know

if he's like Bosh then i hope its the speed for his height, the ability to shoot and has a large repertoire of moves
i hope the similarities are not that he shies away when the competition gets rough, plays zero defense or rather fake defense, forgets how to use his abilities like speed and can't stay healthy for entire seasons

solid pick. didn't want knight/kemba as both are most likely busts. at least this way we get a guy with high potential, but is still raw. seeing how this draft is so weak i don't mind this at all.

so what are the chances he gets the buyout this year? or is it more likely we'll have to wait another year for him to come over?

will this mean jonas at C and Bargs switches to PF? where does this leave davis and amir?
i'm too confused now

so what? thats in europe.. not nba. defense is tougher in nba. those numbers will go down drastically. hes a bust.

Bargnani gets traded, and there will be a Davis/Amir rotation at PF.

I hope there is a buyout, I don't want to go into next season without our draft pick.. waste of a season.

If there's a partial lockout even, it's in our best interest to have Jonas stay in Europe.

He is not a great shooter, but he shoots free throws at ~90% so hopefuly he can be a good mid range shooter if he works on it. I disagree that he is like Bosh, i think he is more like a kombination of Pao and kirilinko (taller C version, who needs inprove his shooting) i watched him playing alot i beleve that he is exactly what Raps need... althoug he needs to put on alot of lbs because he will get pushed alot, but he only turned 19 recently and he is getting stronger.

Being able to move Jose right now is probably next to impossible, considering that nobody knows what they will be looking at with regards to the cap. The same pretty much goes for Bargnani. We could see both of them for another year yet. Really, it's this time next year that we can start to get some expectations with how the team will take shape.

What this means is no more free pass for barg's either he D up or else somebody else going to be on the floor, That's said Barg's 1 year to prove that he was worth the number 1 pick or else he get traded to a no mands land, LOL!

I am loving it, even though i would have love Brendan knight as well but Center being the biggest need and hard to fill, I totally understand the message the BC just pulled on Bargs, LOL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Raps need to get him a good personal coach because he is too raw and skinny for nba, but he learns very fast give him a year or two and Jonas will show how good he is too all of the haters

After looking into him a bit more. I think he'll be a good fit here. He has that sort of inside presence we were lacking with Bargs. Hopefully he gains some weight.
