Anytime you are drafted ahead of a player who looks like a future star, as was the case with Terrence Ross (picked No. 8 overall in 2012, one spot ahead in front of Andre Drummond), there's immense pressure to live up to the hype. In the case of Ross, it's easy to see what the Raptors liked about him; The athletic shooting guard is a highlight film waiting to happen and a strong perimeter and mid-range shooter. But Toronto coach Dwane Casey expects a lot more out of Ross, who averaged 6.4 points in 17.0 minutes a game as a rookie, in his second season in the league.
