RR Member Buddahfan rips out the stats once again to build a case of Andrea Bargnani being the worst rebounding 7 footer in league history. But, upon review of those stats perhaps Bargs isn’t the worst after all. Check and see for yourself.
As the RR fiscal year ends, the boys at the home office in Athabasca, Alberta, had some funding left over which they used to plant spies at MLSE offices. Money well spent as they present the Top Ten Things Overheard in Colangelo’s Office.
I think the 2007 Raptor team's biggest problem was a lack of secondary scoring option. We had Bosh (who was neutralized by Mikey freakin' Moore), and everyone else. Was any team scared of Calderon or Parker dropping 25? Definitely not.
This year, we've got 2 legit scorers in Lowry and DeRozan, and even Salmons and Vasquez have the ability to turn a broken play into 2 points. I'm not suggesting this current team are worldbeaters, but their offense isn't as one-dimensional as the 2007 team, without even saying anything about the improved defense.
