    Defense, and certainly post defense, has nothing to do with upper body strength. It's all lower body/centre of gravity when it comes to pushing people off the block and holding your position. It's...

    Making all-star would mean he's a top 4 guard in the East...

    Something terrible would have to happen to all but three of these players (who I'd say are all better than him right now):

    Rondo,...

    I love how people think they know more about "developing his game" than someone drafted in the first round... whose father was also an NBA player.

    Ed hasn't played a lot of basketball, so I can...
  4. I don't think there was any question in anyone's...

    I don't think there was any question in anyone's mind as to his role on the defensive end, but he can't very well play lock down defense on offense...

    If he can sit in the corner and knock down...

    I think there is some merit to this thread.

    If you look at Dirk, he still has no post game, cannot attack the basket, plays terrible defense, and is not a great rebounder. But he's also won an MVP...

    Jermaine had his issues with injuries, but before that he was an MVP calibre player. I think it's definitely a stretch (based on what we saw in summer league) to think that he could ever get to where...

    Poll: He's probably not going to be BUILT like Antonio...

    He's probably not going to be BUILT like Antonio (is anyone?), but I think Davis (oh, I just realized they have the same last name!) can definitely reach the 15pts/10reb/3blk region. Maybe give or...
  8. Firstly, my point is that there is a reason...

    Firstly, my point is that there is a reason Johnson has only averaged, what, 16 minutes a game?



    Of course there is a reason to suggest he's not going to be more effective than Green. First,...
  9. I seriously question the A+ effort... unless he's...

    I seriously question the A+ effort... unless he's playing a scrub team, his chin is permanently attached to his chest. And his defense is average at best :\ I think I would just give him Cs all...
  10. First option or not, Fisher, Parker, Chauncey,...

    First option or not, Fisher, Parker, Chauncey, and Rondo are so far and away better than Jack it isn't funny. The reason PG is so important is because they dictate a great deal of what happens on...

    Last time I checked, you actually have to be ON the court in order for "on court effectiveness" to be... well, effective. With that said, Minutes----------8,166--------3,291 and PF per 36...

    -1...

    Bargnani is only 24 years old... he's young and is going to be the focal point of our offense (for better or worse)... so the fact that he isn't included in our "young core" is a tad silly....
  13. Clearly not if you are the first to wonder where...

    Clearly not if you are the first to wonder where Bargs is in the starting line up... He's only our most versatile offensive player, a matchup nightmare, and probably one of our more solid man-on-man...

    D. Collison traded for essentially an expiring contract...

    I hope a lot of you that flamed the people who chatted about the possibility of the Raptors grabbing Collison realize how absolutely...

    All I care about is that he is grabbing defensive rebounds. If he can pick up 7-8 defensive rebounds and misses 10 rebounds per game b/c he's not grabbing offensive ones, I'm fine. But other than...

    I love how so many people here can see just a fraction of what I'm sure BC has planned and think they know 1) what he's going to do next, 2) what he's already tried, 3) what options are available, 4)...

    I sorta agree with him... just not top 10 (or 25 for that matter). What I do know, is that getting a couple 3s from your centre and having a big who doesn't auto-lose you on FT% is definitely a huge...

    Short answer: no.

    Longer answer: He has been with the organization a very long time. In that time he's not only been fantastic on the court, but off the court as well. I said it from the start...

    Oh come on... NJ, WA, and IND before the Raps? That's terrible, lol...

    Spots 7 and 8 will go to Charlotte and NY.

    NJ, WA, and IND will be terrible. And definitely worse than the Raptors.

    Please, no Okafor... if you can't play worth half your salary on a team with CP3, lord only knows what's going to happen on the Raptors... He would immediately be worse than Turk. At least Turk was...

    I think we really have to look at causality here... you say "You were either selfish or selfless, either a prolific scorer or a team player," when really, I think the issue is the overall talent...
  22. When Raptors Fans Are Sad, They Can Always Look To The TWolves

    So, with Kahn's recent blunder, I realized that things could be much worse. And this is my silver lining post for... this decade.

    Let's start from the first time I said "who the hell is the GM in...

    quoting metro (who knew they actually had their own writers) is almost as bad as quoting doug.

    Thanks for posting.

    The part I loved the best was the reminder of just how much goes on behind the scenes that we just aren't aware of.

    As much as we like to GM from the stands, there's a ton...
  25. What's wrong with small ball?

    I don't think there is anything wrong with small ball. As someone pointed out here in an article not too long ago, the road to building a winning franchise is never the same.
