    I agree with this. Same thing goes for T-Ross. Those two should be focus points off the bench.

    Hooray we won a preseason game against a Boston team that remained competitive for most of the game with a big three of Gerald Wallace, Kris Humphries and Jeff Green

    which is to say, as I have said before, the preseason is meaningless

    That is my point on DD
    Well your point is wrong.

    DD is a player that thrives when he isn't the focal point of the offense. He does better off-the-ball than on it, and also performs better when the defense is keying in on other players. Bringing him off the bench would force him to become a shot creator, which isn't something he excels at whatsoever. Talk about a great way to reduce a guy's positive impact on the game.

    Imo he can set the defensive tone early and amir always beasted of the bench.

    I love you Tyler
    I was in when Heinsohn saw him on the floor for the first time and said "that's the kind of guy you want to just punch in the mouth"

    Yeah, next game they'll probably play instead of Gray and Daye or something along those lines.

    I'm sorry everyone. You are welcome to disagree with me on my Hansbrough starting point. You will just be wrong is all.

    honestly, its entirely possible that prob against some teams you might see hansborough get the start, just from the way i know casey likes to experiments with rotations.

    but basically amir and jv have a better dynamic, with amir being around/outside the paint and jv inside under the basket. hansborough is better defensively under the basket so you have an overlap with jv. and you prob wont be seeing jv coming off the bench.

    Really liked Tyler's game (as mentioned by others).. He'll be loved like Reggie, JYD and Keon Clark were. Unlike Reggie he can actually get to the FT line and score points though which is nice. That aside.. I think the bench still has issues... and if DD/RG are not firing they will have long nights. They need a solid 6th man who can come in and get a bunch of points. Hopefully Ross turns into that guy but he has a long way to go before he does.

    As for Tyler starting.. I still think chemistry is important for the starting line up. Amir deserves that spot. He's been the Raptors MVP the last three seasons.

    Raptors looked like they were coasting to me. However, that's the best that I've ever seen Ross. The Celtics commentators were awful as usual. The new nickname for 2/3 of the Raps was "that guy"...Crash looked healthy for a change, Green looked lost in the new Celtics offense and the Raps were using their deep bench early. Glad to see Rudy get out of that funk and Tyler did his thing.

    Really hard to assess Raptor bigs when they're playing against a squad whose best big had back surgery last season. Got to get those turnovers down though.
