    Odds are Trent Jr. is going to be better then anyone we draft from 7 to 15.

    If we were a team with no potential I would be annoyed. We have a lot of potential with good young players, we should try to continue our winning culture

    Tre Mann, Jaden Springer and Davion Mitchell could all go in that range and they will almost certainly end up better than Trent, who is getting way too heavily overrated off of a game winner vs a garbage Wizards team without Beal.

    It's also possible to maintain a winning culture and execute a stealth tank if the opportunity presents itself, like David Robinson's season ending injury which helped the Spurs land Duncan.

    That little winning streak is gonna cost a few draft slots.

    Well he said odds are he's better than who we select from 7-13.

    That's 7 picks. Basically, he's saying Trent Jr will be better than 4 of the 7 guys selected. I think that's actually pretty reasonable, and doesn't actually contradict with what you said. He could be worse than all three of the guys you stated, and still be better than most of the guys in that range.

    That said you are comparing a sure thing contributor, to a pick that could be an actual star (or superstar?), which Trent Jr will almost certainly NOT be.

    I interpreted that as him saying there's a good chance Trent Jr will be better than any name in that range.

    I would not be surprised if any of the 3 names I mentioned become superstars on a championship contender, and there are likely guys that I will inevitably be wrong about thinking they won't be any good so I wouldn't say just 3 names either, this is a deep draft. I would be shocked if Trent Jr becomes one.

    Ya. Fair interpretation.

    Personally, I Iike Trent Jr over the guys you specifically named.

    GTJ is like the same age as Davion (if I remember correctly) and he's already an elite 3pt threat with respectable defence.

    However, I do think that there will be a star or 2 (or even 3) that are picked after 7 in this draft.

    I just don't know who pans out (obviously). I do like the ceiling of alot of players in this draft tho.

    I'm confident the guys I mentioned will have/develop a better ability to create their own shots against top competition than Trent Jr, which is a key trait in a closer.

    Looks like Raptors are definitely done for this year. If they can't beat Chicago, they are done. Without Kyle and Freddy, it's major oof.

    He really has that Lillard "f*** you" shot selection. Him and Flynn have been looking solid.

    If the Raptors get a solid big in the off-season they will have a good team next year.

    I really hope they trade him in the off-season. Doubt it happens, but him and Nurse are just irritating to watch.

    Tank going strong. Lowry resting. Now give Gillespie 30 minutes at PG and we are set

    That's why the new play in tournament is a garbage gimmick, we don't even want it.
