    Frankly I love the idea, if only because it will be incredibly interesting to see how it unfolds. 14 teams could land anything from 2 superstars (however unlikely) to 2 busts, and in a loaded draft...

    Looks about the same to me. Against NBA competition most of those dives to the rim would be blocks/misses instead of getting bailed out by bad fouls, just as they have been since he came into the...

    No stat can express or adequately represent Bargnani's defensive failings because the biggest impact it has is on his opponent's confidence. When you play the Raps, you know you can go down that...

    Barbosa makes 3. His best position is at the backup point anyway, as a microwave off the bench. Put some shooters around him, let him go to work. If he's off, you put him out there with James Johnson...

    I think the reason a stat like this is misleading has a lot to do with the position you're looking at. Defining elite level play for a point guard is very different than elite level play for a wing...
  6. Which Raptor big will be trade bait in 2012?

    And what will he bring in return?

    Will Casey get Bargs to play some defense this year, or will he continue to kill his team and get dumped? Will Amir Johnson's contract become attractive after a...

    Not only was he the BPA, he was the best asset available too.

    Which NBA players are most consistently overpaid? Athletic big men that rebound, block shots and have good motors. Not hard to figure...

    Gotta say, I'm a bit surprised at what people are focusing on with this coaching search. Forget whether the coach is defensive-minded or not, can he develop youth? I'd argue that's the single most...

    Those odds are for winning a championship, it's not a reflection of how many games they'll win. You can easily make the case that every other franchise in the league has players more suited to a...

    You know it's funny, I read this shortly after I read Holly MacKenzie's take on the interview Knight did for the Raps:

    Loved how Brandon handled the questions about the “scheduling conflict” that...

    Of course you do it, and then you flip him to a team in the west for youth and picks. You'd have to be on crack not to make that deal.

    Going for another pick in this draft makes a lot less sense than adding a pick in next year's.
  13. You know, I would have agreed with you before...

    You know, I would have agreed with you before Boston. But they started an arms race that's continuing with Miami and if you really want to compete for the conference, let alone the championship,...

    See, I think of it the other way around: after being a Raps fan since their inception and an NBA fan for even longer, I've become pretty aware of just how talented a club needs to be in order to...

    Seems like this boils down to the fact that some people are natural optimists, and some are natural pessimists. I'm a natural pessimist. Seems like those who think the Raps are a few years away from...

    So who are the Raps building around now that makes others better and is capable of leading?

    You really think that two more drafts, with this one being especially devoid of franchise-player...
  17. The #1 asset I'd be after if I were BC

    The Clippers hold Minnesota's unprotected 2012 first round pick. In a strong draft, the chance to double dip in the top 10 could give the team a huge influx of talent.

    What do you think it would...

    I'm pretty surprised there's so much optimism. Don't the names Jermaine O'Neal and Hedo Turkoglu ring any bells? BC's strengths are drafting athletic youth and finding good players that need a second...
  19. Anyone else scared that BC is backed into a 2 year corner?

    I think this one's on ownership. Giving a GM like BC 2 short seasons to get your team to show solid, measurable growth is tough. Doing it while trying to climb out of the basement, without a real...

    Bold prediction: whoever the Raps hire will have no noticeable effect on the team, and they will continue to be awful defensively without significant personnel changes.

    I have serious doubts that Vesely is being given real consideration at 5. I've obviously got no proof, but this screams smokescreen to me. It's just too early to be taking this kind of insider crap...

    I don't mind the idea of Jennings playing for the Raps, but I wouldn't give up much to make it happen. I think Jennings is a better player than he's been in Milwaukee, playing under Skiles isn't...

    As much as I would have liked Kanter with the 3rd, I'm just as happy with the thought of Bismack with the 5th. He's probably not going to be very good for the first year or two, but realistically the...

    Playing Bargs at the 3 takes away his one and only useful skill: the ability to create an offensive mismatch by drawing opposing bigs away from the rim. The opponents' strategy for stopping the raps...
