    the team is infuriating to watch

    lowry/DD/gay are all ball stoppers who don't let the game come to them. and of course one of the dudes is good for 20+ points that night but the other two wallow around taking bad shots FOR SOME STRANGE REASON because who knew having two wings with the exact same game and don't defend was going to end badly. and don't get me started on Lowry. Mister play hard for 2 quarters of every game but consistently not give a shit in the fourth when he could be really useful.

    blow it up. blow it all up.

    keep jv, ross and acy and let Nurse see what he can do. the fact nurse always had a winning team in the nbadl despite playing with lol talent and the good players constantly being yanked around by teams has me intrigued. bring in a guy like Allan Houston to coach up Ross and the rest of the wings. play JV solid, consistent minutes regardless of how he's playing BECAUSE WHO KNOWS MAYBE ITS A GOOD IDEA TO SEE WHAT YOUR FRANCHISE PLAYER CAN DO

    You are right. Toronto is amazing.

    I just know I haven't seen that in years, and I like it when players attack the glass.

    You missed the sarcasm.

    The rebounding is great but, again, they are playing at a slower pace and the other team is hitting 47.3% of their shots. They are NOT a good defensive team. Defensive rating is best way to judge in my opinion. By that they are 18th in the league..

    Not sure about that. DeRozan's main problem is shot selection. He needs to be smart that's all.

    I think you're throwing the term cancer around way too casually.
    He's flawed and redundant with the rest of the roster make up, but certainly not a player that you'd refer to as a cancer.

    Demar Deroza is a hard worker, good bench guy, I like him. But like Charles Barkley says, "my shooting guard has to know how to shoot".

    So true. That, and an extra pass once in a while.

    The Raptors need to heed the old saying: "Pass up a good shot to get a great shot." ...the problem is, the Raptors don't even seem to be attempting many good shots. I think a good start would be: "Pass up an ok shot, for a good shot."

    It's not just you. JV led the team with assists tonight...with 3. Lowry played 47 minutes and had 2. Of the Raptors 38 makes from the field, only 10 were assisted buckets. Pretty much sums up how offensive the Raps offence is right now.

    The Clippers are known as Lob City. Around these parts, it's ISO City. Or Crack City thanks to Rob Ford.
