but they did end up giving him the minutes. he played many games over 20 minutes, many approaching 30, and a handful over 30. he was incredibly efficient even back then, with no issue hitting near 20pts with enough minutes. he showed them what he could do and they rewarded him.
you most definitely cannot argue they are treating JV the same way.
Lol - Dude i must admit i was expecting more from you. This is the talent you were saying is off the charts??? I said i love JV's motor too btw.
Grabbing rebounds better than bargnani is hardly a talent either. Lol
Im not gonna shit on JV because i really like the guy and think he can be a good player for us. However, stop being a homer like you were with bargnani. At least wait until JV proves to be more than an average nba center. I think he will get there but your crying over his development like we have Tim Duncan! Summer league is summer league.....We in the nba now homie!
or you would prefer he bring those upto 20pt/5blk/20rb per 36 minutes before we consider what hes worth?
Also, I was expecting a little more from yourself as well:
You've thrown Bargnani in my face a number of times. I think that is interesting considering your previous comments on the guy.

JV needs more minutes, period
JV got Summer LEague mvp because who could stop him?? Big competition is a joke in the SL lol but hey the guy dominated something he was supposed to.
What he said.Saj
I see a game against Atlanta where derozan took 23 shots and gay took 22 while Jonas took 5. It just seems like every time jonas does a turnover or gets a cheap foul, either the coach loses trust or the two guys who usually have the ball in the half court lose trust. We need Jonas to turn into something special and that won’t happen unless he gets touches. He’ll make mistakes but it’s all a process. We aren’t making the playoffs with gay and derozan settling for mid-range jumpshots. Also, I know there’s a chance Jonas may not be ready to 15 and 10 this year but we have to give him touches to find out. We already know what we got with those two other guys. What do you think? Thanks for the great chats.
I think you have given the problem more thought than I have.
This is the problem when you have guys heading towards free agency and a coach on the hot seat… Toronto is in win-now mode and that will come at the expense of development.
Keep in mind, that the 48 minutes of game time is not all there is. There is a ton of practice, shoot-arounds and development time that comes before and after games. When players show improvement in those environments, they get more game opportunities.
The Raptors believe in Jonas, but they all understand they are somewhere else if they do not win and that is a big part of the problem.
I look at these kinds of situations like this — “Hey the boats leaking, we should get a bucket.” the real answer is we should fix the leak, then get a bucket.
The Raptors seem like they only care about the bucket and not fixing the leak. To be fair a lot of teams do this same thing.
Making Jonas better makes the Raptors better, but the guys on the team need to win now.
