    anyways, how great was Ross' D tonight?

    Ross, JV and Amir were the only players worth their salt tonight, and coincidentally the 3 guys you could build the team with. Ross and Amir as important roll players, and JV a cornerstone.
    I'd add Fields to that list, that guy is a smart player.

    Everyone can relax!

    If it can happen to Jordan, it can happen to Rudy!

    Anyone check Jamal Crawfords beyond half court bomb?

    Clips won by 2.

    Good thing he wasn't worried about his own stats.

    On the sunny side of life, it was nice to read the review from the Houston side and see that they were a bit perplexed as to why the rockets couldn't foul with six seconds left when they were up by three. Normally that's our job.

    The problem with raps is they keep building unconventional teams. We have a center take Rudy take demar take Amir and who ever else and go get a power forward. Dominate the paint , get a big point guard that can play d pass the rock to the bigs and hit the 3 billups, mark Jackson , fisher type players. Ross plays go enough d that u can make him into a role player on the wing same with fields. This team needs to be destroyed and rebuilt. I am tried of watching tunnel vision here in toronto.
    I've been saying this since we got JV and passed up on Drummond for Ross. We need to create an area of the game where we can dominate every single game. With JV already here we just need an upgrade at power forward in order for that to happen.

    That was far and away the most pathetic shooting display I have ever seen.....on any level (which includes the kindergarteners balling on a 2-foot Playskool Nerf net on my street).

    So many "WTF are you thinking moments???", my head just might explode.

    For all the talk of discipline and accountability on the defensive end, what about the other end? Why isn't there any punishment for poor shots? Why don't the coaching staff understand that each heavily-defended long two is just as harmful as a turnover? How does a player reach 15+ misses on the night, and still continue to take low-percentage shots....in a tight game no less?

    I can't wait for the next gen of interactive smart TVs which allow me to stick my leg through the screen and shove my foot so far up Casey, DeMar and Rudy's ass, that the water in my knee will quench their thirst.

    And don't think the other players don't notice this, too. It's so typical of the way this team has played for years now with most every guy looking out for himself first and foremost. What is so frustrating to me is that Gay and Derozan only pass as the last option and, even then, it's done grudgingly. It's also why no one else wants to pass the ball, you will never see it again...

    I wonder how the ball game would have played out had T-Ross and Laundry Folds gotten the Gay/Derozan minutes instead of the latter?
    We probably would've pulled away in regulation

    The saddest part is a feeling of indifference that has come over me when seeing yet another milestone of futility recorded by the Raptors.

    Honestly, I don't even bat an eye anymore.

    its also sad that pretty much any other team would have easily beat the rockets in that game, even utah. houston were incredibly sloppy all over the place and somehow still managed to win over the raptors. just embarrassing. fun game to watch near the end, but still horribly embarrassing.

    haha, Gay attempted more shots than Howard and Harden combined (and yet hit less than them combined). Basketball is often simple, the team with the best player usually wins. We simply don't have a very good "best" player right now.

    Bolded is why DD and Gay need to go asap...they are creating a negative learning environment from which our young players are learning. It happened with DD learning from Bargnani.

    If the roster rebuild is to be successful we need to have an extremely strong personality that the other players will follow. I think JV is up to this because he plays the right way, even if we still lose, if we play hard every night and play as a team, then by adding talent into that system, the talent will learn how to be a pro, rather than get theirs...like the Raps are perpetually stuck in

    One thing that's really irking me right now... Quincy Acy's block on Howard wasn't uploaded as one of the top plays on NBA's channel.

    DeMar's post game comment.

    "It sucks that we're missing a lot of easy shots but we're going to continue to fight it out no matter what. We could be out there playing with a bowling ball and we're (still) going to continue to shoot it."

    WOW.

    He's probably just echoing what's been said by the coaches too. That's the scary part.

    What is it that they say about doing the same thing over and over again, while expecting different results???

    Video seems to be missing the made 3 at the end of OT?

    But wow, that's depressing to watch... glad I missed the first 45 minutes of this one. So many open teammates ignored. So many times he gets the ball in reasonable shooting position, and takes a couple dribbles, waits till the defender gets up on him, and then tries a much more difficult shot than he originally had.
