    The fact that Biyombo's also an expiring contract could convince them to trade him. I wonder if Hansbrough (still an expiring, if they value the offseason cap space Biyombo represents) and a 2nd...

    I'm not claiming anything as fact, just giving my opinion.

    One could look at the Chicago game and say that JV and Ross were keys to their hot start. JV was a scoring machine in the paint (which...

    Making a difference is one thing, which I completely agree with. However, with the way Cleveland and Chicago played those specific games, I really don't think the Raptors would have won even with...

    Fair enough. My opinion is that while possible, it is highly improbable that DeRozan would have made that much of a difference. Perhaps one of the Cleveland games would have been gettable, but in...

    Do you really think DeRozan would have made enough of a difference to turn the losses (2 vs Cleveland and 1 vs Chicago) into wins? Obviously the team is better with him than without him, but those...

    Tor-okc

    To TOR:
    - Ibaka

    To OKC:
    - DeRozan
    - Hansbrough

    * I wonder if Toronto could include a 2nd round pick in order to pickup a 1st round pick, since I believe DeRozan has more value than Ibaka...

    Why isn't he needed? His scoring isn't needed as much as it used to be, but his value has always been in his 3&D/glue-guy role. Also, $12M for a 26 y/o borderline all-star isn't too much at all.

    He just turned 26 and he's only making $12M as an expiring contract next year. With the emergence of Lillard, he's become a co-3rd option with Matthews, who are similar 3&D wing players. His...

    Batum is one of the premier SF/3&D/glue-guys in the league, that is absolutely critical to Portland's success. They'd likely ask for at least one of DD/JV/TR/1st round pick as a starting point. The...

    All the more reason why it doesn't make sense, since Toronto (and all of Canada) is a huge market, even for US products.

    Would the media and NBA like a 7-game LA/NY championship series? Of...

    I can only talk for my reply, which was more in response to the second paragraph I quoted. I've edited my previous post to make that more clear.

    In general, I don't think there is "unfair slanted...

    Toronto has to overcome 19 years of apathy, due to 19 years of utter failure.

    Once that's completed, they have to overcome the perception that their record has been largely inflated by an...

    The refs didn't cause the Raptors' 6+ minute scoring drought to see their 12 point lead evaporate at the end of the 3rd quarter.

    The refs didn't stop the Raptors from going inside.

    The refs...

    The one interesting thing I've observed in DD's absence is that the offense is more balanced with a single primary ball-handler (Lowry), along with the addition of a good off-ball player who's also a...

    Most of that is dependent on the coaching strategy. It's like when Bargnani was here and people complained that he took too many 3's instead of posting-up... if he wasn't doing that by design, he...

    The math behind Hollinger's ratings is publically available and doesn't contain any bias.

    As for other rankings, obviously there is going to be bias. I bet if we did a poll on RR to rank the...

    If the Raps could get him for relatively cheap and he bought into the team-first approach, he'd be a great PF. When he played hard inside during his early years with the Hawks, he was a force.

    I have no idea why DC stuck with Hansbrough when both Aldridge and Wear were on the court. He couldn't defend or rebound against them. I thought Hayes or Stiemsma should've been used in his place. ...
