    I love how people still think that getting "posterized" has any relevance to quality defence. If you are never in position, or if you never try, you will never be "posterized". Caboclo was in...

    So, I wonder about all those who thought that the Raptors should tear apart their team to "tank" for a generational talent. Embiid looks like he might be made of glass, and Wiggins isn't even a sure...

    Are you kidding? Which mediocre team doesn't want a GM that will tank when appropriate? If they don't hire him it's because he was so ineffective at tanking that he ended up with only the 8th pick.

    When was the last time the Raptors' playoff odds (Hollinger) were 100%? (http://espn.go.com/nba/hollinger/playoffodds)

    They are playing so well that a 20-point blow-out seems pedestrian for them....

    My point is that I am not convinced that Afflalo would be a significant upgrade on DeRozan over the medium to long term. I'm not so easily inclined to compare advanced stats when usage is so...

    But Lowry's value won't keep on going up even if he continues his strong play because he is a rental for the rest of this season - he is a free agent after the season.

    If they want to trade Lowry...

    Remember when Barnes was the consensus #1 draft pick and future franchise SF and fans of mediocre teams were clamoring to tank for him? Now some are talking about trading a mid-level PG with an...

    In my opinion Vazquez is not a starting caliber PG on an upper echelon team, and maybe not even on a decent playoff team. He is a good back-up on a good team.

    Moving Lowry would be enough for the Raptors to take a nose-dive. He is the straw that stirs this drink right now.

    Melo needs to weigh in on the trade, and then it will be done. The Knicks can't even fathom the fall-out if Melo decides to leave as a free agent. If he pushes to bring in Lowry because he thinks...
