Matt and Jack, i think more Jack in particular, i think, both have affinity for guys who are team-oriented, nice and clean cut guys. And Jack is very old school. So i guess to them, Lowry's bullish, aggressive type of play wont get it done.
I agree that it's an old-school approach, but I think it's more the pass-first VS score-first style of PG debate. I don't think the "nice and clean cut guys" factors into their analysis though.
More and more I think we need to turn the page on BC...the only caveat being that BC knows all of the problems and a new GM would take time to get up to speed.
Here is BC's record as Raptors GM:
You can go through each team's GM to get an idea of how long they've been there and what they have done. A quick look through and you will see BC's new motto is: "Hey! It could be worse! I'm not Geoff Petrie!"
Darrick "the original marcus banks" Martin
Uros "the wall" Slokar
Juan "quick first step" Dixon
Luke "sweet shooter" Jackson
Maceo "the inside presence" Baston
Hassan "defensive stopper" Adams
Jake "murderer" voshkul
Roko "spurs killer" Ukic
Will "CP3 wannabee" Solomon
Patrick "the skyscraper" O'Bryant
Pops "hyper" mensah-bonsu
Ronald "im a scorer" Dupree
Sundiata "buzzer beater" gaines
Primoz "gangsta" Brezec
sorry im on my third glass of wine.
i just read an article saying the raps are moving closer to a GAY deal...which in itself is nothing new but at the end of the article it mentioned that the Grizz would get a young player & a future pick from the raps & Jose to be flipped to a 3rd team yet to be found, also mentioned is the Grizz had attempted to include Ross in the deal & was told by raps that Ross was Untouchable! makes me wonder if maybe that young player is Demar & not Davis... or maybe both?
i hope this remains the stance with Ross & if it does ill give BC credit for that.. Ross is a Keeper!
Pretty funny how both Ross and JV, picks that were heavily criticized at first, are now the only 2 players on the roster that are "untouchable".
I personally would trade him to boston for Bradley (a VERY GOOD defensive player) & Green/Sullinger or a 1st round pick (If boston is willing)
That would be a good trade for us
Lowry is NOT elite......he's clearly NOT the player we're looking for....he is what he is
Maybe we can use the pick to get a player through the draft (a PG) that can learn under Calderon for a season or 2
We dont have the talent to run with Lowry and he doesnt run the offence well enough to be our starting PG of the future
He would play very well with a team like boston because they have good talent to surround him
For the Raps he's currently just a back-up PG and he's better than just a backup.....Doc Rivers, KG and PP might be what he needs to take the next step
He's injured too often for my liking! He plays soooo hard.....He seems out of shape to me.......Whats not to say he gets injured again? Then what?
I personally think its obvious BC made a mistake giving up our 1st round pick for him....especially since we're rebuilding and it looks like we're heading to the lottery AGAIN
I don't mind bc as a gm. I do think sometimes his swing for the fences all in is a bit over the top but I do prefer that to a gm who comes in and just works the draft every year while taking millions of dollars.
with bc the front office becomes a topic of discussion.
So with the game in ATL is it imprtant we start Lowry to assert himself back to the starting PG or do we continue playing Calderon to start to try and boost his value? I really dont think it can go up anymore its the best its ever going to get and that GSW game was the old Calderon....
