My Victor Oladipo draft plea to the Raptors brass...

I understand, there is a daily avalanche of fan-mail filled with ideas that will guarantee a championship...

Well, this is my humble hat being thrown in - the Toronto Raptors would be wise to acquire a high draft pick to take Victor Oladipo. His work ethic and athletic ability suggest that his rapid development is a trend that should continue.

In the short term, he and JV form a defensive tandem that also boast the heart and hard work that Toronto sports fans love to cheer for...in the long term, those traits also happen to be essential to the pedigree of championship contender. Not to mention that these are two young men you can trust to act as ambassadors of the Raptors brand.

Oladipo's the diamond in the much maligned rough of the 2013 draft. He could be our Russell Westbrook-like perimeter ace, but without the antics. Surely, that type of prospect would be worthy of a trade involving anyone from the Raptors core not named Jonas.
