Is Tim Leiweke the new Colangelo?
And Dwight was 83 of 93 (and 23.6 %) . That’s why they called this report the "Dwight Effect". You should actually read it.
Then again - don’t bother. Anything positive, is not, when it comes to...
Yeah ... I don't get this thread.
Must have REALLY short memories, if this is the darkest days.
Personally ... a waste of neurons talking like this.
If you wear a Sonics snapback, no one would care.
If you can play like Wiggins, they would.
Bargnani was too easy of a target.
Anderson on the other hand, if the dollars were realistic, might have caught more in the net. Joke or not, I'm on the side that thinks Raps should...
Not to belabor this whole debate we're having, but could you quote what the Authors said exactly, as I couldn't find any reference to Bargnani that you allude to.
As to my conclusion that the...
You're right ... I did have to do a little more research. What I clarified was how this Harvard Study determined a few things in their study of the NBA. Amongst them are:
The Dwight Effect...
This analytical approach throws a few curves to the typical coaching approach, that spices its' thinking with traditional stats - some simple; some more complicated.
I posted in a...
Payroll doesn't matter to me, but it does to our Cap position. Should the Raptors be above the "apron" ($4 million above the Luxury tax base), the implications do impede Contract Offer terms & use of...
Rebounding can be a function of good Defense
But good Defense is not necessarily a function of good Rebounding
Take the Miami game for example:
2nd Q - 3:33 remaing
DD Lay-up shot (missed)...
Mitch had some great points, however, he gave a better interview several months ago (so this is old news). The only "additional" bit of information he seems to be sharing (that has relevance), is how...
I don't want Boozer.
And here's why:
Kyle Lowry (new contract) - 9 million (conservative?)
Rudy Gay - $19.3 million (final year)
Demar Derozan - $9.5 million
Boozer - $16.8...
Carry on with:
Vegas will gladly take your money.
Telfair could be our man. That's why I think he should be backing up Kyle - now. Give JL time in blow-outs, or as a scorer. Telfair needs to show what he has. If it works, then we can move on to the...
Barack Obama doesn’t know much about the Raptors. I’m guessing.
Many Americans probably don’t. Or at least quite a few. Rick Mercer once asked Americans, their opinion on...
You have to quantify this .....
His Opponent [Anthony Davis] - was 20 pts, 18 rebounds, 2 assists.
Yes, his substitutions have me perplexed at times. But in Bargnani's case, I think they were bang on.
When Andrea was not bringing it, Casey took him out - effectively benching AB....
What he isn't:
No. 1 option
#1 overall draft pick (and fans need to let that go)
What he is:
23.4 ppg, 6.4 Rb, 2.4 apg, 3.0 Stl, 21.4 shots, .435 efg%
19.7 ppg, 5.2 Rb, 1.6 apg, .9 Stl, 18.3 shots, .454 efg%
23.5 ppg, 6.6 Rb, 2.3 apg, .7 Stl, 18.8 shots, .466 efg%
Scare some. Wonderment for others.
I'll start off by giving the one big reason - for some - that Andrea should be traded, no questions asked.
"I hate this guy with every living atom in my f*#king body."
Now ... as to why...
These 2 comments go hand-in-hand.
2013-14 payroll - with Boozer on board, or BYOB ... Bring your own Boozer.
8 players (Rudy, Demar, Amir, Kyle, Fields, Jonas, Ross & Boozer) = $66.8 million...
4 words describe my thoughts .... I DON'T WANT GASOL. If Raps were play-off bound, and beyond a 1st round team, then maybe. Otherwise ... Noooooooooooooo.
Gasol is becoming a shell of his former...
I guess I'm a Nobody.
That being said, there are a number of reasons why this trade had to happen, or needed to happen (IMO):
1) Jose was most likely gone at the end of the season, if Raps...
