    Summer League vs Raptors

    I think you just described our play since Calderon was traded. The Raptors are not a great place to be for a young big man to develop.

    Agreed

    I just read these forums, never actually write in, but I had to today. Aaron Gray, can be a VERY effective player within the correct system. He takes up a lot of space, doesn't back down, boxes...

    1. He was out of position several posessions in a row. It's just a fact.
    2. As a coach, I don't look at the outcome, I look at the process. I don't care if the outcome was good, I want good...

    Time...

    Ed played those minutes b/c of matchups...and I think he was out of position on a number of defensive plays in a row.

    Also, Amir needed to stay warm.

    As for Kleiza, he was getting ridden into...

    D League Style

    The D League is a guard oriented league. Most plays are motion oriented and there is a lot of transition.
    Guards will most likely look off a new 7 ft 2nd rounder.
    My suspicion is that he will...

    Ok...I will agree that Barbosa is not a good PG, he wouldn't be my choice. However, I wouldn't utilize the stat that Johnson had more assists than him on a night when he was playing the 2 as proof. ...
  7. So?

    And your point?

    Are you suggesting that Johnson, by virtue of his position at forward, should have fewer assists? Johnson turned, faced the basket and looked for cutters. The motion of the...

    I disagree entirely with the premise of the post (but I'm glad that the OP opened the discussion). The concept of 1-5 positions is outdated and incorrect, in my view, and understanding basketball...

    Hamilton has a Regional Elite development squad...that replaced a National Development program. However, I get your point.
    It's a top down issue. The athletes are there, the interest is there. ...
  10. Statistics & Damn Lies

    I usually read your comments Buddha and they seem thoughtful and well reasoned. But this latest makes no sense to me.

    Part of your reasoning is based on minutes played, which I agree with as...

    Because

    The reason is that Jose would not move the ball up the floor in transition. He held it and we would too often end up walking, and then bouncing it into Bosh 18 ft from the rim.
    Triano wants to...

    You've never seen him play...but are quite sure that this is a bad deal, specifically b/c he doesn't score 15-20 pts a night?
    I have seen him play. He's fundamentally sound, tough,

    Banks can be a spark. I have seen him up close enough to know what he is about. He can drive, but he cannot create, nor can he shoot consistently.
    On defense, he is aggressive to a fault. Gets...

    Arsenalist, I have never been a fan of the theory that you need to bring energy off the bench. Energy comes from the sun, not the bench. If my coach tells me to play ball, that's what I do. End of...

    Lineup

    Jose
    Derozan
    Hedo
    Bosh
    Amir

    Btw, as an aside, Hedo should be running the pick and roll from the top w/ either Bosh or Bargs on a regular basis and then swinging the ball weak side to Jose when...
