    The Raps have the perfect recipe. Good game to unleash Psycho T to get under his skin. Should take about 2 possessions.
    Cousins has definitely calmed down a bit but yah, if anyone can rub a tech or two out of cousins, it would be hansbrough.

    Default One-on-One...To five: Rudy Gay Interview

    Rudy was interviewed by Marc Stein and he had this to say about Toronto

    Q: How hard has it been to watch Toronto kind of take off without you?

    A: It's not [hard]. I love those guys. DeMar [DeRozan] just texted me five minutes ago ... literally. We'll always be brothers. That's my little brother. I love to see him have this success [and make the East All-Star squad]. He's been in the doghouse of the NBA for a long time. I think now he's getting his just due.

    Yep. That sounds like the right plan to me. More Hands-Bro, less Hayes.

    I'm very curious to see who guards Gay (assuming it's Ross but I'm sure Demar wants a go) and how the team mentally handles this game.

    Rudy Gay was never a bad guy in Toronto. Not a bad player, not a bad teammate. He had a big contract, and at the time, it wasn't working. I like the guy, wish him well, and respect that he isn't shitting all over the Raptors like most of the ex players have.

    Good on um.

    Hard fould and serious defence all over his ass tonight however.... but yeah, Rudy is ok.

    Well, I'm not so sure about the degree of 'badness', because the one thing we don't know are what instructions Casey was giving him and if Gay was following them or not. I mean, literally the day Gay left, the ball started moving. Unless Casey was deliberating telling Rudy not to pass the ball, then it's looking more like Gay actually was a bad teammate who wouldn't follow the game plan.

    I think Rudy realized that he can be a great player by playing off of other guys. In T.O., he was broadcast as the man, the man who was going to lead Toronto to the playoffs. All the shots, all the shine, all the attention. Simply put, he is much better playing off of other great players like he is in Sacramento.

    Im honestly glad this trade seems to have worked out for Rudy Gay as well as for the Raptors.

    Oh I'm so giddy at seeing t Ross guard Rudy! Ross gonna play with a chip on his shoulder? The raptors gonna play like the little brother showing his big brother that he's better than him?

    Exactly. It seemed like when he was put in the role of "the guy" in Toronto he treated every possession like it was the final one of the game. That to put the team on his back and be a leader (as he said) meant to him he had to score in isolation. In hindsight the coaches were partly at fault for putting him into that situation way too often.

    As talented and confident he is at taking the last shot in a game (and that's debatable), he's better in the flow and without the pressure of being the go to guy on every possession.

    Hansbrough can probably rub a manslaughter charge out of Cousins.

    Good to see a post like this! Where someone is actually excited about "defense". My wish entirely especially for this game. The Sactown boys are going to be jacked too wanting to win for Rudy as much as our guys especially the 4 ex Kings wanting to show that they made a mistake not even playing them regularly when they were there. I will be tre pissed if the Raps dont put in a stellar defensive performance. The offense will work out by itself.
