Lets hear ya… 1) I think most agree the Pizza Pizza promotion sucks. Suggest a promotion that could take its place. 2) The whole Twitter thing between Bosh and Charlie V…good, bad, annoying? 3) Summer league has not solved the question of Roko Ukic. What do you suggest we do with him? Primary backup to… Read more »
Toronto Sun After signing Monday with the Cleveland Cavaliers, Parker believes he has a legitimate shot at winning his first NBA title. "For me it’s always about who really saw me fitting in with what they’re trying to do," Parker said. "Cleveland has been that team from the beginning. They showed the most interest and… Read more »
To get a taste of what Jarrett Jack could bring to the Raptors I spoke with Tom Lewis, the main blogger over at Indy Cornrows. He saw Jarrett Jack play all 82 games for the Pacers last year and we talk about his character, his defensive make-up, what he brings offensively and what Raptors fans… 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.
