LOL ... I thought the title might catch some people's attention.
I love the growth this kid has shown over these last couple weeks, but don't you think we're getting ahead of ourselves right now with his potential? Everywhere I read today is "Sonny this & Sonny that". "Sonny saved that old woman's cat from the burning apartment". Right now Sonny could sleep with any of your wives or girlfriends and most you would just him the high five. I just don't get it.
Three of his "breakout" games this season came against two of the weakest opponents in all the NBA in the Nets and the Knicks. I could understand the optimism if some of his biggest performances came against some formidable opponents but come'on .. the Knicks and Nets.
Anyhow, I'm one of the many Raptor pessimists here in Canada so I have no problem being proven wrong or "eating crow" but I'm just not buying into all the excitement with Weems right now. Great guy coming off the bench and I'd even suggest he should play before DeRozan, but until I see efforts like last night against teams like the Magic, Lakers, Celtics, etc., I'm still not convinced.
After this season, where does Weems fit in long term? Actually, let's not worry about long term. What do you think his role will be with this team come next season. Just another energy guy off the bench or do you think he actually stands a legit chance to start on the Raptors next year?
