    Default Calderon and Wright to Start Tonight?

    From Doug Smith's blog the other day.

    Time for a change

    Remember the other day when I mentioned that there were those in the hierarchy who thought change might be coming to the starting lineup?

    I am sure their voices are louder now and should be listened to.

    I wouldn’t be at all surprised if the starting lineup in Golden State on Saturday wasn’t Jose Calderon, Antoine Wright, Hedo Turkoglu, Chris Bosh and Andrea Bargnani.

    It’s not entirely a knock against Jarrett or DeMar – and Lord knows there’s enough under-performing going on now that everyone shares the blame – but it’s got to be time to do something to see if they can find a spark.

    There’s still a quarter of the season to go and that’s plenty of time and they remain right in the thick of a race for fifth, sixth, seventh and eighth.

    But the events of the past couple of weeks, plus some private conversations I’ve had with a bunch of people, leads me to believe change is afoot.

    And, frankly, I think it should be.

    What do you guys think? Good move, bad move? Change for the sake of change? All I know is something needs to be done in order to get the Dinos back on track.

    DeMar out is definitely the right decision, but I don't think Jack should be removed from the starting lineup. Sure at times his defense has been suspect, but no worse than Jose's. If there's been another player consistant throughout this season along with Bosh (when healthy) its been Jarrett.

    Fully agree with you there.

    They should bench Hedon't though.

    You know what, it might not hurt. It seemed to work for the Spurs in San Antonio with Jefferson who until last night came off the bench for 7 or 8 consecutive games. I think more of these recent collapses by the Raptors and perhaps Jay might make such a bold move in sending Hedo to the bench.

    JT doesn't have the balls to make a move like that, let alone even consider it. Jay is no Popovich, so for him to pull a move like that would def require balls of steel.

    I'd like to see Wright replace Hedo in the SL. Maybe having Hedo coming off the bench will light a fire under his ass. Not sure if that diva can handle it though. Ego anyone?

    Its broken, time to fix it or at least band-aid it until the off season when major change could be coming again.

    They need to make the playoffs if want any hope of keeping Bosh.
