    Default Are You A Fan of Alan Andersons game?

    Alan Anderson, streaky shooter, adds some scoring to this team and his shooting seems like it keeps us in games and also gets us out of em. Let's pretend we could make some trades to get rid of the logjam at SF, would you want to keep Anderson?

    Trade him while his value is inflated from Casey's mancrush.

    Alan Anderson is pretty much Rudy Gay except 1700x cheaper with better defence. He might not be as athletic as Gay but when it comes to actually playing he is just as good as him if not better with the way Gay is playing this season.

    Disagree, Rudy Gay's defensive rating of 97.3, making him one of the best at guarding his position.

    EDIT* Sorry, I don't disagree, Anderson is a better defender, but my point of posting the above is because he's just as a good a defender.

    Raps IMO should mainly use him as a spot up 3pt shooter kinda like Anthony Parker when he was here. Right now he's trying to do too much, pretty much forcing everything offensively. Tough to watch.

    I like Alan Anderson.

    Only when he's playing the role he should be playing, and that is the 3-&-D guy. He's a really good defender, good outside shooter, and will give you stretches where he can create his own shot. He's not a sixth man in my opinion...

    Casey is too soft on his guys. We need a coach that will get up in the players face and tell him what he should do when he's on the court. I feel like Casey's just giving everyone too much freedom, we need some stability and strictness. If Greg popovich or george carl had AA they'd bench his ass if he took stupid shots like he does sometimes. In yesterdays game he drives into like 3 guys and pulls up from 14 feet trying to bank it off the glass, what goes through this dudes head? DeMar, Rudy and Lowry were on the floor...

    Alan Anderson has a pretty good overall game. Good ball skills, has range (sometimes) and solid defender. His jab steps are ridiculously effective.

    The problem is, he thinks he's Kobe. Either he's stupid or the coach just gives him free reign.

    Put him in the Spurs system and watch him flourish. He is very skilled. Just limit his usage.

    As like a 10th or 11th man who knows his role? Sure
    As someone playing in the crunch who jacks 3's and leaves guys like allen and kobe in the corner to help? Nonono
    Just play ross at this point Casey.

    This sums it up for me.

    I admire AA and have the utmost respect for how he made it back to the NBA years later after traveling the world looking for a game.

    However I am not a fan of his game or his usage at this time because it is coming at the expense of the future... and all that hope for the future b.s. Raptor fans - myself included - cling to each March and April.

    Anderson is a ball staller....I admire what he has done to make it back to the NBA, but now go do it on another team.

    There are more "oh no!" than "yes" moments when I watch him play.

    His shot selection makes him expendable imo!

    I would rather live with TRoss and his rookie learning curve because he has more upside than Anderson by a country mile!

    This is why I voted no, and the first bold why I could vote yes if he were actually utilized as he should be. I don't think that'll ever happen in TO though with Casey here. AA is a 5th/6th wing in terms of talent, and even if he is used as a 3rd/4th wing in the regular rotation, it should be as the guy who barely touches the ball except to hit open 3s.

    Also, AA's D is quite overrated. He gets up into people when guarding them one on one, but he's not long enough to really bother SFs (really, Fields and Gay are much better options as defenders there), and not fast enough to guard SGs. He's smart, sure, but so's Aaron Gray...it doesn't mean he can overcome his deficiencies (I know relatively speaking he's not as deficient as Gray).

    He needs to be sent to the d-leauge where he can showcase his kobe like tendencies ...0.o Casey should be sent down there with him for allowing AA to do that kind of foolishness. the look on DD face after that bank shot tells you how much casey allows this to happen too often.......Casey is god awful with his man crush on AA and JL3. .......side note does casey have a 3rd yr option?

    I think he does solid job some nights, just hoping he can be included with Bargs for something we need, AA is a very inspiring guy and I hope he stays in the NBA he deserves it dont take away from the fact he can ball.
