    A few quick notes:

    1 - I like the trade for the Raptors. People are saying giving up what they gave up was a large price, but I disagree. Calderon is gone at the end of the season; if you don't...

    A few quick notes:

    1 - Can't see the Bucks as a contender. They have Jennings to deal with, and have Udrih as a backup and Ellis playing the point for the bench unit as well at times. They...

    I think the most optimistic sign for future development would be a real commitment to letting the young guys figure it out, play together, and develop their games while having the coaching staff...

    Huskies is too generic. Sadly, nobody liked my suggestion of the Toronto Fighting Yaks the first time around.

    You need great players to win.

    You get there by some combination of drafting well, signing good and average players to great contracts (as in, cheap for the team and staggered well so that you...

    I would suggest the correct plan is to maximize your options. As an example of doing that well: Houston.

    If you clear up cap space, acquire picks and young players, and have the ability to...

    A few quick thoughts:

    - At a first glance, one would think the Raptors are better than their record indicates because they are one of the most snakebitten teams when it comes to injury in the...

    Yes, but the Wolves are already rolling out Love and Pekovic, and I don't think anyone can argue Bargnani is going to play the 3. I just see only downside to taking on a big salary for a much worse...

    Why exactly would the Timberwolves want a far worse version of the player they already have, though? You don't need AB when you have Kevin Love.

    Edit: I think my view on Ross was fair - he's young...

    I think the differing perceptions about Calderon and Lowry have to do with how the issues at the wing and with the lack of offensive creativity flow through to the rest of the offense. When other...

    Disagree here. Toronto has zero wings (other than perhaps Ross, who has not had a chance to play much yet) who are even replacement level players.

    This creates all sorts of knock-on issues...

    I think it's not wise to overvalue young bigs. JV is good, but for every guy that turns into a Tyson Chandler later on, there's also a Kwame Brown. Which is to say JV is valuable but not untouchable....

    In fairness, Jose was also getting abused by Holiday, because Holiday is actually pretty good.

    PG is not why the Raptors lost this game; in the first half, Holiday was also playing well, but the...

    In fairness to both in this game, there was a lot of standing around and settling for jumpers by the wings. Neither PG is going to be incredibly effective if the other 4 guys are standing around like...

    I will say for my argument I didn't bother to look at Lowry's Toronto numbers, because he's been healthy for all of 2 games (and roles for he and Calderon have been jerked around, strength of...

    A few points...

    1 - Advanced metrics don't love Jose. His PER, Win Shares, most plus/minus metrics etc. are all inferior to Lowry. Basically, once you start getting into metrics that can account...

    So you are holding Lowry accountable for what? Casey running a terrible offense and leaving Bargnani in the starting lineup when he wasn't trying? Getting injured and trying to come back because the...

    A few things...

    1 - I don't blame either Jose or Lowry. I blame Colangelo and Casey, in that order. The players don't make the decisions about how to construct the team or who gets playing time...

    I think this is more of a problem on the Raptors than most teams.

    Do you remember the 81 point game that Kobe dropped on the Raptors? Lost in the discussion of that game were the players who...

    I believe I said they need bigs who can shoot 3s IF they want to stick with their current crop of 3-deficient wings, not in general. It doesn't have to be the bigs, but if nobody on the floor is a...

    1 - JC is a solid caretaker PG for this team, but he can't overcome the offensive deficiency of the other players...

    My notes:

    1 - I agree that keeping Lowry necessitates blowing it up. The bigs that Toronto has probably play fine with him, but the wings are a desolate wasteland devoid of life, skill, or the...

    I think you have a borderline playoff team, at best, with that rotation. JV, ED, AJ are all solid bigs. None are spectacular, but I wouldn't be against having any of them in a rotation. However, of...

    My thoughts:

    1 - Jose is not that good. He's in the bottom half of starting PGs in the league. I can definitely name 16 PGs that I would take over Jose if I was starting a team today. Plus, he's...
