Drafting Ross is the perfect example of picking the best player as oppose to picking for need...
Tanks for nothing, Rudy.
Andre Drummond would have been a good pick as well.

Oh look, teams have realized that if you take away Ross' shot, he doesn't have much else in a half court set.
Until Ross puts on muscle, learns to dribble, he will just a spot up shooter. A more athletic Mike Miller.
If Bargnani comes off the bench with him, both of them have the ability to go off on any given night. But as it stands now, I don't see him contributing more than a couple of buckets a night.
He has all the tools, he just has to figure out how to use them.
Drummond right now is a super athletic garbage man, his offensive game is so raw. He's a good rebounder, but so is Reggie Evans.
Both will have good careers, not sure what the big deal is.
I'm not sure if your a Ross hater or just angry that BC didn't pick Drummond.
Ross will be a good player man, I'm happy we got him.
The Drummond nut hugging by Raptors fans is getting out of control, either become a Piston fan or just except that we didn't get him and move on...
Edit: Not trying to be rude, I just don't see the point looking in hindsight.
