Jurassic Pick

tor.gifScott from RaptorBlog is too busy talking about some supposed Knicks/Raptors rivalry to worry about the Celtics.  For those wondering how there is a rivalry between those two teams, here's his explanation:

When your NBA franchise is only 12 years old and you've only made the playoffs three times in franchise history, it's not likely that you're going to have any significant rivalries with another team. But there was a time when the Toronto Raptors were a decent team, when they posted three straight winning seasons from 2000 to 2002 and made the playoffs all three seasons. And in two of those seasons, the Raptors faced the hated New York Knicks in the first round.

But I digress.  Actually, no I don't.  I can't think of any story lines for this game.  I don't have any undue distaste for the Raptors (other than the fact that they named the team after a movie monster and Zeke used to run the team).  In fact, I have a good deal of respect for the way Colangelo has put that team together and created a contending team.  I suppose I could draw a parallel between Doc and Sam Mitchell who entered the season in lame-duck status but has actually fared pretty well.  However, there's no telling what the future holds for Doc, so I'm just going to leave it at that.

Instead, I'll just pose this hypothetical question.

If you could chose, would you rather have the top pick from last year's draft or the 3rd pick from this year's draft?  Discuss.


Justin Poulin is covering the game again tonight and has the Pregame Interview with Doc Rivers, but it sounds more like the Georgetown postgame show.
