    What noticeably stands out is that the Raps. either lead or keep pace for 2/3rd's of the game and then pick it up afterwards. Something like a marathon runner who plans his race well. Seldom do...

    Hypothetical situation - Amir and Millsapp are free agents. 1) Who would be in more demand and 2) who would command more money?

    Answer to both questions is Millsapp. He would be in MUCH MORE...
  3. That's a matter of opinion but I think the so...

    That's a matter of opinion but I think the so called "basketball people" consider Millsap an "above average" player and Amir average.
  4. You're misunderstanding me. I'm a big Amir fan...

    You're misunderstanding me. I'm a big Amir fan and would never like to see him leave. Notice, I said "starting line-up". The intangibles and "tangibles" that Amir brings are invaluable. However,...

    I completely agree. A player with more talent or potential could worsen the team due to not fitting in. Knowing Masai's ability to find pieces that fit, let's hope he finds the right one/s.
  6. There isn't a single GM in the league who would...

    There isn't a single GM in the league who would say no to JV? At least half would say no to Ross. If Ross is traded, Raptors will continue being a good team. If JV is traded, things won't be the...

    Don't forget Estrada. With money saved (Cabrera), I hope they re-sign Jansen.

    I have nothing against dealing Happ. It's just what they dealt him for that I don't agree with. I just felt that a Happ/Navaro package (both starters) could have netted us a really good return. ...

    Yes Jays have saved a little but it's a lopsided deal IMO. Not that Saunders is a bad outfielder but a good back-end starter like Happ could have netted a better return.

    Love it that Donaldson is here but Lawrie is a VERY good third baseman and a decent hitter. He should do better without the "media created hype". The first thing he should do IMO is curb his...

    This is a trade that would benefit Denver and cripple Toronto. It frees Denver of about 13 mil. after the season and Toronto gets stick with McGee's contract. If JV is out for a lengthy period of...

    It's too early to determine as to what changes should be made. Thanks to a favorable schedule, things have been good so far. I don't expect it to stay that way throughout the season. In about 4 to...

    Is Vernon Wells the Jays new center fielder? He was at the Raptors game.

    I absolutely agree that the Wizards are over rated but it's also true that some teams (eg: Nets) are under rated. Some may even say that the Raptors are over rated and justifiably so. IMO Raps. are...

    Cherry should not be ruled out 'cause the team has only two pure PG's. Yes Williams can fill in but I won't be surprised if they retain Cherry. Gaurds/SF's are available aplenty so Hamilton is...

    Success depends on talent and Character. While VC was born with the former, he didn't develop the later. If he had, things would've been different.

    Of course he had a "replaceable game" and the majority of players of any teams roster have replaceable games. That has nothing to do with "honoring players".

    Let me remind you of that trade. To Knicks : Jalen Rose and 1st rounder.
    To Raptors: Antonio Davis.

    Davis was acquired because his contract was...

    "Determined" is the key word here. It seems like you are determined not to like MoPete.

    When I say "team play", I'm talking about effort. The willingness to do what the Coach requires of you...

    When a team decides to honor a former player, it does not do so based on wins or losses. It does so based on his ALROUND contribution, on and off the court. If a close Raptors follower was asked to...

    Injured players usually accompany the team. Management should feel the presence of a veteran invaluable even if he's unfit to play. Instead they felt otherwise.

    Davis came back because he had to, not because he wanted to. Unlike Alonzo, he was not willing to risk losing salary. A little after he came back, when the Raps. asked him to stay home, he gladly...

    The reason I didn't include Davis is 'cause of his attitude. He whined his way out of town. I know Carter did the same, but he's Vince Carter.

    Agree a 100%. Talent wise he may be in the bottom but in terms of effort and loyalty, Mo is easily No.1. A fighter from start to finish, he loved being a Raptor.

    [QUOTE=TRex;368176]Seriously though, honour Rose for what? nothing against him, but what has he accomplished here??

    I know, i read somewhere last year that the Raps were planning to honour or...
