    Henson's proven me absolutely wrong about him. I never thought he'd be a good pro but from what I've seen he's definitely legit.

    I just don't get the need to bash a player on our team that is still developing. Some of the "fans" on this site are pretty wishy washy. It's one thing to bash Bargs after 7 years of mediocre, frustrating performances, but to bash a guy coming off his rookie season, that's just miserable. People are way to negative on this site!
    Motherfcking amen!

    JV looked out of shape last time. Had a great 1st half but 2nd half you can tell he was tired. Need to so some conditioning.
    After packing so much muscle, he needs to pick up his cardio. It will come though, I have no doubt!

    I don't agree with that at all. His ballhandling is better. They've clearly been working on that with him. I also think his speed is fine...it doesn't look like he has avoided conditioning.
    Ross' body language and compete level stinks

    Condescending comment to show you have a superior knowledge. Glad to hear you value your opinion best.
    Not saying that at all. It's common sense really. IF you follow basketball.

    Do you think Lowry is a top 10 PG in this league? you'd trade Lowry for Wall straight up right? and who do you think is the better player Ross or Barnes??

    The answers to those questions are all COMMON SENSE. No brainer really. There shouldn't be a debate to any of those questions. But i read a lot of response here in the past that are just hilarious.

    JV showing composure in the double, nice passing, nice movement.

    I commented he seemed slow before, I lied, he seems fine.
    one concern with him is he telegraphs his passes and forces them. Ought to be fixable tho

    "COMMON SENSE" has to be one of the most misused/abused expressions in the English language, especially when someone tries to label their opinion with it, in putting down others. Everybody has a different interpretation of what the hell it means, to the point that it has become virtually meaningless.

    One of my favourite quotations about common sense comes from one of the greatest minds of all time:
    "Common sense is the collection of prejudices acquired by age eighteen"- Albert Einstein

    Or another one from a great Irish mind:
    "A man of great common sense and good taste - meaning thereby a man without originality or moral courage." George Bernard Shaw

    You claimed that "Most or "some" of the people in this forum have no idea what they're talking about."
    I havent seen anyone say Ross>Barnes, or Lowry>Wall around these parts. So you are obviously talking about other peoples opinions in general. Meaning you are being condescending simply due to the fact that you dont like other peoples opinions.

    Also, it's the first competitive ball these guys are playing in about 3 months. No amount of off-court work can simulate real basketball. Conditioning was not great for anybody in the first game.

    But it is a very long running streak. Something to point at with pride.

    Too lazy to find it. But i actually created that thread right after the Raps/Wiz game so i know. That was the game where John Wall played his worst game of his career. Remember that game? i said something like Raptors should trade Lowry + Ross for Wall. And a couple of posters said no way they trade Lowry for Wall LOL.

    I found part of what you're talking about: http://www.raptorsrepublic.com/forum...all&highlight=

    Only one poster said they wouldn't but there probably were others in another thread
