    That's why it says at the end of my post: "Again, for the sake of argument, the same players remain on their NBA teams, and are on the FIBA team, so if we play them, Demar is on both squads. (yay...

    If the USA FIBA team were an NBA team?

    If the USA FIBA team were an NBA team, how would they rank in the 2014-15 standings? For the sake of argument, put them in both the East and West. How do you think they stack up against the current...

    I'm old enough to have seen our 4th quarter theme before. It's Wrestlemania, it's Hulk Hogan. 4th quarter, Stripes is laying a beating on the Raptor. Suddenly, those chops to the chest are just...

    The one main thing keeping me from considering the Raps to be an elite team, is that there are teams that we have no answer for. Teams like the Clippers have our number. To be elite, I tend to think...

    Every team in the NBA has a record that's partly padded by wins over weak Eastern Conference teams. That includes us, but also every record this season. Are the Pacers the worst #1 seed by the same...

    East vs. West unfair?

    I keep hearing about how unfair the balance between team quality and playoff contention is, in terms of East vs. West. Most of what I hear is how team A. is a playoff team in the East, but team B. is...

    My wife won us some 2nd row seats to a pre-season game years ago. We played Lithuania, and I had no idea who Kapono or Delfino were, at the time, because the Internet sucked back then. The view was...

    That basically sums up my feelings exactly. Amirs "market" value is less than his "team" and "fan" value. Garlic is worth less than ground beef, but take it out of a meat sauce, and your pasta...

    Trade Amir for a late 1st round pick, or 2nd round picks?? Why in the hell would you even think that this is some sort of upgrade or improvement? The only way I would move him, is as part of a larger...

    I heard a quote about Buycks being better than any of the late 1st/early 2nd round picks this year. I was thinking about the similarities between drafting a guy and (in the absence of a pick) simply...

    Just watched a bit of Raptors-Boston on Cable. The guide says Heat game, but I saw the green as I flipped past, and realized they were showing our game. That's annoying right there for sure.

    The amount of talent we'd have to shed, to get bad enough to have a top 5 pick (hopefully) seems greater than the value of a top 5, or 10 pick to me. I would think that young players to develop,...

    I guess my point wasnt so much the value of the % in a typical game situation, but in the sort of game where there's a minute or two left, and a small lead to protect. In the game the other day, they...

    The value of the FT%

    I was watching one of our recent wins, and near the end of the game, it was a contest of fouls and free-throws. It got me thinking how under-valued FT% is as an offensive stat. I was watching Jose go...

    I'm happy for him. He worked hard here, and if it were'nt for the injuries to guys ahead of him in the rotation, he'd not have been expected to do more than the role he was hired for.

    I think we'll see more of Ross as the season goes on. These first two games have been against top Eastern teams, and as skilled as Ross may be potentially, he's still a bit undersized and raw. JV,...

    Can a small market team ever land or have a superstar player, and actually afford to surround them (once they've matured and established themselves) with enough truly quality talent? Do you not often...
