That was a forgettable week in every sense. You could see the Boston and Phoenix defeats coming, but the shellacking in Charlotte wasn’t exactly on the horizon when this segment was written last week. The scoring differential for the week was -14 and we gave up 114.25 points per game. Our defensive rating went down   …Continue Reading

That’s the kind of inspired defense the Raptors should be playing. Suns 113, Raptors 94 – Box We can’t play defense because we don’t know how to play defense. There’s little anybody can do to teach us defense because defense doesn’t work that way. There’s no prosthetic for laziness and indifference which is what we’re   …Continue Reading

The “frustrated yet?” edition. Banks – he had a tough decision to make during the game today:  seat #3 or seat #5. He made the best choice. Bargnani – came out of the gates just the way we needed him to: focused. He kept us in the game early as Bosh struggled and spent the   …Continue Reading

The “well, at lease we now know our coaches have more balls than our players” edition. Banks – least he could have done is rushed on to the floor and attacked somebody. So what if they suspend him? Bargnani – yikes. I said earlier in the day that if he remained in a haze, it   …Continue Reading

I have a feeling Amir will come to Jose’s aid if KG starts yapping again. On a scale of one to Chris Brown, how upset/mad/depressed/pissed-off/violent were you feeling after the Charlotte game? Terrible. Just terrible. There was one positive that came out of it though: timing. We got that game out of our system before   …Continue Reading
