The ‘should we burn this mother down’ edition: Even if we got a top 5 pick, are you confident that BryCo will make the right selection? Does anyone really care that 5 of the last 9 games of the season are being shown on TSN2? If I was to organize a raid on the ACC,… Read more »
Opposing benches have too much fun against us. Raptors 86, Bobcats 112 Usually I’m pretty good at sticking through the whole game but I had to turn this one off early in the fourth when Jack Armstrong started talking about how Leo was a “phenomenal passer” back in his day. No. Stop right there. Hy’s… 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.
