    haha musing about rumors is one thing. Actually believing that there's any legitimate probability of it happening is another. Even if there's a 0.001% chance of it happening, then this whole Drake...

    Which pretty much summarizes what many around here have been saying for years... Toronto is deep with 2nd and 3rd option type players (not to mention role player depth), but is lacking a true #1. Of...

    Very much so. He is willing to spend big bucks to win, but when all the spending goes for naught, he holds people accountable and cleans house. He knows very well that the best way for him to make...

    It's also going to be interesting to see what happens with Amir and Lou, as both of their contracts are up after this season as well.

    Considering the wear & tear on Amir's body and his wonky...

    I think you missed my point. You seem to think that running professional sports franchise as a business means that they don't worry about winning. My whole point was that worrying about winning can...

    Or is it management/media's fault for always forcing the team's top player into the role of 'franchise player', even when they're best suited (talent-wise and/or personality-wise) to be a 2nd or 3rd...

    It's beyond me how there can be like 8+ major sporting channels in this country, yet the nation's lone NBA team gets practically no pre-season coverage. On Saturday night there was something like 7...

    I hope that DC goes with a tight 8-man rotation for the most part (starters + Vasquez, Patterson and Williams), with JJ & Hansbrough being the distant 9th/10th men. All other players should be...

    The benefit of that is having an extra roster spot to help facilitate trades, as well as the savings against the cap.

    On the flip side, which I think is more in line with MU's approach, is that...

    I haven't seen anybody suggesting the bold should (or will) be the case. If any of the players currently ahead of Bruno on the depth chart play poorly - whether it's a key young player like Ross or...

    1st bold - my thinking is that if you go into the season with a clearly established starter, 2nd and 3rd string, the lower you are down the depth chart, the more you need to prove yourself in order...

    Why do the two things have to be mutually exclusive?

    With Rogers/Bell as primary stakeholders, I would argue the two are intimately entwined. Without a passion for sports (which I assume to mean...

    In the part you bolded, when I said "who deserve it more", what I meant by that was that they had already earned their playing time.

    I agree that all players should continue to have to earn their...

    In his prime, Mo-P was a prototypical '3&D' wing. He was a fantastic perimeter defender and a great scorer. He also played within himself and within the team's game plan. Had he not wasted his...
