    Is it just me or does Amir look much less muscular?
    Does he? I'm not sure....But could be.

    To me it doesn't seem significant, but who knows, maybe he took a fairly long layoff from training because of how worn down he was this season after his 56 ankle rolls and who knows what other bumps and bruises. Or maybe even McKechnie and the staff thought it might be better for him to stay lean given his body type?

    It's been mentioned before, but Amir seems very top-heavy. Probably doesn't help his centre of gravity to be adding weight above the waist, while maintaining the chicken legs.

    Maybe McKechnie has Amir focusing on his legs this summer?

    That's probably 100% attributed to moves like this:

    That's a bit of a misleading statement. The Raptors had a DRtg of 95.5 with those two on the floor together, and the best team in the league (Pacers) had a 95.6 DRtg overall. There are many, many other 2-man groups in the NBA that had a better DRtg than Amir and JV when on the floor together.

    Out of all 2-man units that played at least 250 minutes together, they are 126th in defensive efficiency--right behind Devin Harris and Anthony Tolliver, and just in front of Ivan Johnson and Lou Williams.

    Toronto is part of me," Johnson said at training camp Thursday at the Air Canada Centre. "I've been around, the people are very kind, I love it here."
    But the Raptors big man, who keeps his Toronto condo through the off-season, said he could see himself settling down in the city once his career comes to an end.

    "I'll definitely consider living here," Johnson said. "I love it out here."

    Amir would need to be productive.

    Alvin was demoted under previous regime. There is a strong possibility he was not good at what he was surpluses tone doing... Or he did nothing at all.

    Also admits aid he'd move to toronto which already has Alvin beat Asa he remained located in Philadelphia.

    What rile would fit Amir though? Perhaps commentator at games or what Jamal is doing within the community would definitely suit him he's very charismatic.

    That is a question for 10 years down the road. Amir is only 26.

    It's the point differential of the score while a player is on the court. If you sub-in and your team goes on a 10-0 run, you'd be +10 without necessarily scoring a basket or registering an assist. More likely in the Raps case, when Augustin comes in and the other team goes on a 15-2 run, he's a -13. Your total is set at the end of the game. It doesn't necessarily indicate what someone did to impact the game, but more reflects how the game was going while a specific player was on the court.
    Whatever you do, do it the best you can
