Default And with the 5th pick the Raps select Tristan Thompson

I say draft thompson, the Raptors biggest bone of contention over the years has been not having a canadian star on the team. Tristan Thompson has star potential and would bring basketball in toronto and canada to new heights if he turns out to be something special. I really hope thompson gets to play in front of his home crowd and prove the doubters wrong.

Um no unless we are trading Davis or Amir there is no point!

Davis>Amir(ankle surgery)>Thompson

Makes absolutely no sense.

Tristan Thompson will be a good pro. At this point though we have too many PFs.

It could possibly happen if either David/Ahmir is traded. But if we draft a PF you know that somebody is gone

If we draft a player at the one position where we're actually pretty solid.....

Thompson @ 5 is a bit of a stretch...IMO he will be what Ed Davis will be in the future...maybe 12-15pts and 10rebs/game with about 2blks

But I'd love to see some Canadian content in a Raptors uniform... perhaps Cory Joseph in the 2nd round???
