    With Andrea gone and with Pshyco T in, we get a ton tougher and no one in the league can call us soft now. teams are gonna hate playing against V and Amir only to see Pshyco come off the bench. Andrea gone speaks volumns how are D can be much more tighter, watching that 3-17 record, put someone else besides Bargs in and we could have curbed that record a lot more. There was no toughness during that slide.

    Plus probably the second best nick name behind Black Mamba

    Hoping for a competitive season. Let's get a winning culture and let another team develop a 2014 player.

    (I said hope didnt I)

    If they wanted to add toughness, there really weren't better options out there. He isn't the most skilled player, but he has an elite motor (to add to our already great bigs in that regard), and to say he does the dirty work is an understatement. He also actually has a decent ball IQ.

    I'm not his biggest fan, but it wasn't a good FA market for the Raps to find something in. I would also think regardless of what direction any of us want them to go in, this works out. If they decide to tank he's a good piece to have...to move or as insurance if they start throwing assets around in trades. If they decide to compete he'll contribute what he can. Either way he shouldn't cost much and should have fair value....hopefully it's not a stupid deal.

    you mean Jarrett?? If so, he's supposedly agreed to go to Cleveland.

    No .. Stephen Jackson. I would have much preferred that signing (not that hed be helpful .. just that hes much easier to root for than Hansborough)

    Why would they go after S-Jax though? There's no room for him on the roster, and he's seemingly become a pain to manage, not accepting his own declining abilities.

    we wouldnt .. only comparison is that he would bring "toughness" in the same way Tyler would. Otherwise though .. no comparison and no need to add him

    Just realised now that, after we get Psycho T and trade Bargnani, we only have 2 European players on the roster, and one of those is Kleiza who might be amnestied. Probably won't stop the media referring to us as an international team though...

    I love this guy. He will bring to Toronto an ingredient they have not had since Charles Oakley. He will mean at least 5 additional wins to this team. I hated him when he played for the Pacers but if you watched him in the playoffs against Miami he was great. Best move yet this year.

    i like it! not the best FA signing by any means but toronto didn't have that many realistic options anyway.

    i used to swear at the TV like crazy every time Hansbrough would get away with a dirty play. But i'm glad he's on our side now, this is going to be fun. Especially in the playoffs
