Its just comparisons, I'm not saying he is or is better than those players.

can't believe we have chance at bringing this guy to Toronto

love that the Toronto staff took him out for dinner instead of having him in more of interview setting, I think its a sneaky way of geting to know who he really is

Nobody @#5 will be our savior. Don't know where you saw me say that. Does it bother you that much that I disagree with you?

The Toronto Raptors took Brandon Knight out to dinner, rather than just interview him at the hotel. A source said the Raptors are very interested in drafting Knight at No. 5 to replace Jose Calderon as their franchise point guard.

Awesome, thanks Acie. I have a feeling though that he'll be gone by #5.
On the bright side, I hope Jose is replaced and he's shipped out.

Unless he impresses at the workouts, I can't see why he won't be available when we pick.

Most mock drafts have him going 3rd to Utah. Every mock draft has him as the second best PG in the draft.

Brandon Knight said he got a 4.0 GPA in his one year at Kentucky. That's quite impressive for a student-athlete.

He looks sick with his cornrows. If we pick him, I hope he grows them back. Don't go off on me, but it just reminds me of AI when he rocks them.

I'm not convinced by Knight at all, he looks really indecisive on the court. He also looks like he lacks confidence on the court. His ball handling isn't as good as it should be, I don't think he will transition well into the NBA. When I try to imagine his ceiling I don't think he will get much better. Whenever he is under pressure he usually buckles and everything goes downhill from there, plus he isn't really a leader. He can't command guys on the court.

I would draft Kemba Walker purely based on how good he could be. He has the talent to be an incredible player in this league. His never buckles under pressure, he always maintains his composure. His leadership is light-years ahead of Knight, and its pretty evident this team needs leadership (especially if Calderon is traded).

Pick up Knight!!! this team needs jump shooting...we have no shooters on the wing and if jose Calderon is gone then we may be one of the worst perimeter teams next year barring that we don't sign/trrade for anyone.
