    Yeah, I had my eye on Houston that night. Was really hoping to turn our pick into two of theirs.

    And this is really the most legit argument in favour of the pick. Wouldn't have necessarily even needed Drummond to play a game as a Raptor for him to bring back value to the franchise.

    And the...

    Obviously the lack of involvement of our bigs is annoying....

    But once again, it's preseason. It's hard to take much away. Some coaches have really bullish approaches where they don't implement...

    Yeah, I was hoping since it's preseason he would just coast and ignore most of the game....I was wrong.

    I think he can if he stays healthy. He's a talented dude, and the opportunity should be there for him to play in Minny. He's looked pretty good through the summer and preseason. Minny might suck this...

    Right? Unfortunately, while the basketball will get better starting next week, don't think the reffing will rise along with it.
  7. Seconded.

    This is just my opinion, but I think it's their wings. They have a really messed up situation going on there. They seriously lack good 2-way/versatile wings.

    -Barnes is their best 2-way wing...and...

    Meh. I kind of hope that as a fan base, people don't care enough to boo him. It's a waste of energy on a guy who really meant nothing for this franchise in the grand scheme of things. In my mind,...

    Probably best to just wait for the summer and go after him in free agency. His contract is small right now, so Atlanta won't really be tempted to shed his salary, nor will they give him away...so why...

    I would also say that in the most likely way to get a favourable matchup in the first round is to get as high a seed as possible. So even in the first round, seeding matters a great deal. It's not...

    I don't think it's very likely at all. I think it's more likely we rest guys when they have a playable injury (I'm looking at you, Amir), but in general not really for other scenarios. The Spurs...

    I would also throw in the potential impact of Millsap's decision on what the team does. Millsap is going to be looking for the biggest pay-day in his career, and it's not hard to think that could...

    Because I think you're vastly overrating Taj's scoring ability.

    First off, it's not that he's not as good a passer as Noah...it's that he's not a good passer, period. Or rather, he's a player who...

    But Taj is the same thing, and then it all gets into fit, and for Toronto, I can't envision Taj in any way being a better fit than Amir. Maybe health-wise, but that's a different angle entirely.
  17. But again I come back to fit, and what kind of...

    But again I come back to fit, and what kind of scoring option do you want? Taj would clearly start ahead of 2Pat for the same reason Amir does: defence. However, Taj doesn't fit at all into a scheme...

    Fair points, especially the bold, but that's still not the consistent way in which their subs were managed. While maybe not the most frequent case, there were also games where a young guy would be...

    Well, D is hard to measure, and there's certainly no stat I like very much, but using nba's stats page and sorting for DRTG in the clutch, the evidence isn't very good in that respect.

    I honestly think a lot of that is management doing an excellent job (even going back to BC) in gauging character. Raps have not had a lot of inflated egos or boneheads in their locker room. And I did...

    That is flawed though. You're ranking by +/-, which in no way helps describe what happens situationally, nor does it represent results. In the end, the best stat for performance is the most basic, Ws...

    They were also one of the worst close-game teams in crunch time. So there's that too.

    First bold: I know you didn't say he's dominant, I was just pointing out he isn't a stand-out post player. He has some moves, but he's a backup level scorer. The thing that makes him arguably starter...
