The “I’m pretty sure Devlin soiled himself” edition Bargnani – da big Italian played da Bulls like he was a strong arm in da mafia. Da hustle he showed tonight further proves dat I was an idiot when I said he would never make it as da Raptors centre. Bosh – dere is only one… Read more »
Despite all the losing this year, the Raptors are 9th in total attendance and are only surpassed by Detroit, Chicago, Portland, Dallas, Utah, Cleveland, New York and LA. We’re a step ahead of Golden State who are the self-proclaimed “best fans in the league”. As you can see below, the last few years we’ve fared… Read more »
Check the Opening Tip to find out why Aaron Gray is called the White Panther. So Zo got everyone excited for no reason yesterday, turns out he finally announced his retirement which is a little funny because I thought he did that when he got traded to the Raps in the Carter deal. Funny guy… Read more »
Changed my mind; I do have something to add: TRoss. I generally doubt that players pay attention to what-all’s being said out there (out here) but I wondered a couple weeks ago when, as the griping-crescendo was building and about to peak towards TRoss, he seemed to break out of whatever low-level of funk he was in, to suddenly play a bit better. So … I’ll throw two cents into the internet-ether to say that TRoss would be a much-much better player and would earn himself many extra-large paycheques come contract time, if he would decide once-and-for-all that he *had* to be better and to start by driving hard to the hoop, and often! I don’t expect to see an ego-maniacal-attitude (can you imagine, tho? Damn, he’d be dangerous). But if he got a little bit angry or impatient (even) at his slow progression, thus far … it couldn’t hurt.
I remember reading a lot of years ago how then-captain Bobby Clarke of the Philadelphia Flyers was pissed at one of his talented line-mates (Bill Barber, I think) who was sleep-walking, so between periods, he yelled at him loudly and whacked him hard with a stick, across his shin-pads … and it worked. (Next period, the guy scored, the team won, etc, etc.) So … maybe a fellow Rap could … you know, wake him up, just a bit more? A stick probably isn’t necessary, but .. maybe throw a shoe at him? Because he’s too talented to not be on his way (yet) to becoming a big star in this league. So c’mon DeMar. Give him a little Compton-style. Get him angry. Without JJ for a bit, you’re gonna need him.
