Oh god, that made me so happy.
Interesting post. Everyone i talk to seems to think that reggie is not in our future. I think that it is a tough question to answer right now.We have not seen ed davis play yet, and i think that will be the deciding factor. We should wait until after the trade deadline because he is very valuable. Anything could happen. I personally love his style of play, and i know i will get some hate for this, but, he has won games for us. We out rebounded boston. If i had told you that 3 years ago you would have called me a lier.
I would not offer him over 2 years. My opinion.
Reggie serves the same purpose as an enforcer in hockey. He hurts your offence, leaving you to play 4 against 5, and he's not going to score unless the puck bounces in accidentally off his butt. But what he does do is give every guy on the team that little bit of extra courage they normally wouldn't have, allowing them to play without fear and even with aggression. I think we all saw yesterday, that for the first time in years the Raps weren't afraid of the C**tics. And the C's didn't even think about trying any funny stuff - even Shaq. Players in the L know that Reggie's crazier and tougher than Garnett and Artest combined and nobody wants to take the chance. The only other guy on the team who could handle the enforcer role is Dorsey, who we should be grooming to take over from Reggie eventually.
I was so waiting for Buddha on this one. haha
At the most a 1 year deal for him if he's actually here at the end of the year. I love him he's getting older and guys like Davis and Amir will be one year better(and maybe even Alabi).
Good analogy. Every team needs a Reggie - he just shouldn't be starting.
Dorsey is a great big off the bench. When given opportunities this year he has taken advantage. I hope the Raptors consider him a part of the future even if it is 3rd or 4th big off the bench.
