    I think the 'grittiness' lends itself to the blue-collar and underdog self-image that Toronto fans have — even though Toronto is a vibrant and diverse city with a huge population in the burbs.

    If...

    I'm not going to be in Toronto for the playoffs, so please, please boo the Nets extra loud for me.

    I despise that team almost as much as I hate the Knicks. Let's teach New York and Russia that...

    Someone will offer at least 12-13 M/year.

    I could live with 12/year. I mean, how many other point guards in the playoffs would you rather have right now? It's not that long a list. He's out...

    Amir and Lowry must be grinning ear to ear right now.
  5. A guy like Hansborough could be very useful if we...

    A guy like Hansborough could be very useful if we meet the Pacers or the Heat the playoffs. I hope Casey puts him in versus Bosh, Lebron and Hibbert and junk up their games. We always struggle...
  6. I can imagine the Raptors attacking Hibbert,...

    I can imagine the Raptors attacking Hibbert, getting him in foul trouble and eking out a 7 game series.

    We don't have anyone that can even pretend to guard Lebron. I can't remember what we did the...

    Vince would be a solid veteran upgrade over Salmons. If we resign Lowry, we should serious look for a young point guard we can groom into a starter as Lowry exits his prime. GV is okay, but he is...

    I seem to remember Dell Curry moving much better off the ball than Novak or Salmons. He was a liability on defense but also incredibly consistent. Even though Salmons is probably better overall...

    Dose of reality.

    Don't get me wrong, I love watching this team and I think the writer is over-exaggerating, but the chasm between the Raptors and Pacers/Heat, and the top 5 or 6 teams in the West,...

    Poll: I think with Gay on the team, it revealed Casey's...

    I think with Gay on the team, it revealed Casey's achille's heel — the inability to manage big ego's or players with a star mentality.

    If we make some trades and somehow upgrade the roster during...

    It would have to be a game-changer. I wonder what DeRozan and a 1st rounder might get you right now.
  12. Bk-up guard positions, obviously. I think we have...

    Bk-up guard positions, obviously. I think we have the option to not pick up Salmons. And Vasquez is a poor man's Calderon who was a poor man's something else.
  13. The Knicks trade fell apart because there was no...

    The Knicks trade fell apart because there was no net positive. They wanted to hand us Felton's crappy contract, and wouldn't package Shumpert OR Hardaway OR a even a pick in the deal. They basically...
  14. You (and many other people on this board) are...

    You (and many other people on this board) are operating under the assumption that Lowry has high value on the trade market right now.

    That's simply not true because of Lowry's contract situation....
  15. This is my thinking as well. Lowry is pretty...

    This is my thinking as well. Lowry is pretty critical to the composition of the starting 5. If they can't resign him or find anyone even comparable at a reasonable value, they should consider cashing...

    Positives: Raptors took care of business and crushed an exhausted, injured Nets team. This is exactly what good teams are supposed to do and anything less than a 10-point win would have been a cause...
  17. If the Raptors are as good as we think they are,...

    If the Raptors are as good as we think they are, they should blow out the Nets, regardless of how well the Nets have been playing lately (a lot of their wins have come against teams with their own...

    I want the Raptors to DESTROY the Nets. I want us to break them. Run them into the ground. They've been on a lucky streak so far and I want our team to rip the heart right out of their chest.

    I...

    I couldn't have put it better myself.

    While I managed to bring in a lot of talent, I was terrible at understanding and developing the true value of the players I had. I was following a...

    If I had to pick one, I'd pick Patterson, but personally I think we need both in order to contend.

    Amir and Jonas are great — they're athletic, two-way players — but not dominant, intimidating...

    This quote from the article raises a good argument for not encouraging the coach to tank.

    "As a coach, I understand Masai," Casey said. "We're all on the same page. We know the clamoring for all...

    Same. I never understood the league-wide obsession/trend of maxing out gifted but fundamentally flawed players.

    Casey's contract is expiring.

    He knows that he needs to prove that he can do more than develop a team if he wants to keep his job. He has to demonstrate the potential to coach a contender. Part...

    Normally I would 100% agree with you, but Simmon's argument is pretty solid. McGrady's biggest mistake was leaving Toronto. Give it a read, it's pretty funny/sad.

    Quote from the article:

    Kobe considered T-Mac one of the toughest defenders to play against, due to his length and athleticism. And his coaches (Van Gundy, Rivers) vouch that the only reason T-Mac's defense suffered was...
