We should've drafted...
Since this seems to be the popular theme of the evening, let's try a little exercise.
I'll go first.
In 1996 we should've drafted Kobe Bryant instead of Marcus Camby.

Yeah 20+10 is definately better than nothing.
Dwyane Wade instead of Chris Bosh
Andrew Bynum instead of Charlie V, Danny Granger instead of Joey Graham
Monta Ellis instead of PJ Tucker

Great idea for a thread, Acie.
Some of the ones proposed so far are good. In a couple of cases, I think there are other good options aside from those already mentioned.
Here are some other ones:
1998 - Dirk Nowitzki or Paul Pierce. This, of course, would be done with the hope that McGrady is more likely to stay when not in Carter's shadow. With less media hype around Pierce or Dirk, maybe Tracy stays. Imagine Tracy paired with Pierce.
1999 - rather than trade Bender for Antonio Davis, the Raps select Shawn Marion with the 5th pick.
2000 - The Raps still draft a left handed swing man, but this time they get the best one in the draft: Michael Redd.
2001 - Tony Parker would have been nice(as someone already mentioned). Or, instead of that, the Raps draft Gilbert Arenas.
2002 -rather than draft and trade Kareem Rush, the Raps should have picked and kept Carlos Boozer or Luis Scola.
2003 - I am okay with Bosh. But as Thriller pointed out, Wade would have been nice.
2004 - Where do I even begin. When one looks back at that draft, they can only shake their head in dissapointment over what could have been. Instead of Aruaujo, the Raps should have drated any one of Iguodala, Biedrins, Al Jefferson, Josh Smith, or Kevin Martin. All 5 would have been very useful selections.
2004 - 2nd round pick should have been used on Trevor Ariza, instead of Miralles.
2005 - As others have mentioned, we could have used our two 1st round picks to get Bynum and Granger. David Lee was also available. Even Lee would have been much better than Joey Graham.
2005 - 2nd round pick. Instead of drafting Ukic, Babcock should have drafted either Louis Williams, Ryan Gomes, or Marcin Gortat. All 3 of them have some value.
2006 - 2nd round pick. Thriller mentioned drafting Monta Ellis, instead of P.J. Tucker. The Raps also could have drafted Paul Millsap, instead of Tucker. Drafting either Ellis or Millsap would have been a steal.

Going to show the opposite end of the spectrum:
1995- Instead of Damon Stoudamire, the Raptors should have drafted 8th pick, Shawn respert.
1996- Instead of Marus Camby, Samaki Walker
1997- Instead of T-Mac, Auston Croshere
1998- Instead of Antwan Jamison, Tyronn Lue
1999- Instead of Johnathan Bender...ahh well it was a bad pick as is.
2000- Instead of Mo Pete...Mateen Cleeves
2001- Michael Bradley sucked he stays.
2002- Kareem Rush was terrible enough
2003- Instead of Bosh, Michael Sweetney
2004- No comment
2005- Instead of Charlie V...Martell Webster
2006-Instead of Bargs....POB
2007- No pick
2008-Trade that didn't work out that much.
