    Default Which Raptors line is better?

    1)PG: Vasquez
    SF: DeRozan
    SG: Ross
    PF: Bosh
    C: Valanciunas

    2)PG:Lowry
    SF: DeRozan
    SG: Ross
    PF: Johnson
    C: Valanciunas

    Bench aside ... who wins a 5 on 5 match?

    2 .. Bosh is good but he's not that much of an upgrade to Johnson if he's healthy

    I'm so tempted to say 1
    because for some odd reason I think Ross would play better alongside Bosh ....

    bosh is better than amir when both are healthy. I personally think that bosh (had he stayed and we still got JV some how) would have paired perfectly with JV.

    I love Amir, but, for one, we are over exaggerating his ability/impact, and yes I know his stats say he's elite at certain things, etc.

    And we are completely underexaggerating Bosh. Yes, he's become third fiddle, but that's what his team has asked of him. He's said nothing, made no complaints.

    He's still a very good player, if he needs to be. Is he the low-post banging Bosh that we used to have? No. Is he going to blow by defenders like he used to? No.

    What will he give us then? Oddly, he's that Stretch 4 that we hoped Bargs would be to be honest. He grabs a decent amount of boards still, plays relatively good man-to-man/help defense, but teams HAVE to respect his 3-Pt Shooting, which really opens up the court for DD's Drives, and it seems Ross's drives, as he gets more comfortable/aggressive too.

    Hell, even Vasquez likes his little floaters.

    i would pick team 2 because
    you could probably trade vasquez and amir johnson in a package deal that could get an upgrade at PG
    off the top of my head, i guess you could make a trade where hornets get amir johnson & vasquez and we get tyreke evans?

    hornets lose the odd man out in their rotation, who is talented, but is relegated to a 6th man role on a heavy wing.
    they get a good backup point guard for holiday and a backup PF/C who is an expiring contract.

    why we do it:
    we get a starting point guard, who at PG put up 20-5-5 in his rookie season. I guess he needs a change of scenery and if Lowry leaves, this trade would keep us contending.

    PG - Evans
    SG - Derozan
    SF - Ross
    PF - Bosh
    C - Big V

    That's a young lineup (minus Bosh) that can make a lot of noise in the East if Tyreke gets back to form

    Whichever team has Bruno coming off the bench.

    Vasquez could probably average a double-double with starter's minutes, but as mentioned previously, his overall playmaking and ability to run a team is just adequate.

    Team 1 also means we have three ball dominant guys on the court (Bosh, DeMar, Vasquez) compared to two on Team 2 (Lowry, DeMar). That may improve DeMar's overall efficiency, but his scoring still takes a knock.

    Team 2 > Team 1

    Bosh is a free agent that wants to play in Miami, Texas, or LA, not Toronto.

    Any lineup with Lowry and Amir would beat a lineup with Vasquez and Bosh
