    Default Bosh, Hedo & Co. Have All Checked Out & Left the Building

    Grange discusses Bosh and how horrible he's been since the All-Star break and possibly some of the reasons why.

    And Bosh?

    He’s been terrible since the All-Star break, and whispers around the team attribute it to everything from his new and New York-based girlfriend having his ear to him going to Dallas for All-Star and coming back having decided to move on and going into “protect my numbers and don’t get hurt mode”. Or maybe he’s preoccupied with getting his tattoo finished.

    In any case, for years he was cautious about calling out his teammates and his coaches, preferring to lead by example. Now that the example isn’t so good he’s doing it casually.

    Last night, in about 90 seconds, he blamed his teammates for failing to man up and hit shots going down the stretch after he kicked it out and the coaching staff for improperly scheming Wade down the stretch.

    Nice.

    And Hedo:

    When pressed, Raptors president Bryan Colangelo said that word of Turkoglu’s night out had reached the team – apparently fans had spotted him and sent e-mails to team officials and some media – and the matter had been dealt with “internally,” the implication being that the Turkish small forward had been fined.

    Before last night’s game, Turkoglu denied that he’d been out at all, but added that what he said didn’t matter.

    “It’s all good, man,” Turkoglu said. “I’ve been dealing with this [stuff] the whole year. They’ve been on me on this [going out] the whole year long. If I wasn’t out, sick or healthy, they [the fans] would still say something. I don’t say anything. Ten games left of the season, all I try finish strong.”
    I guess Hedo isn't looking towards the playoffs but just to finish these last 10 games.

    Trying to spin Hedo's words into a conspiracy. Give it up Doc.

    Fun is riding the roller coaster at Six Flags. Fun is going to the beach at precisely 2:30 pm. Fun is going to the movies to catch a late night flick. Spreading false allegations about another man is not fun good sir.

    I guess our definitions of "fun" differ significantly. Too each their own.

    Hedo is your one stop convenience shop. Pissed off about the team? Hey, the Pizza Pizza Kid is coasting again tonight so I'll blame him. Or hey, the Pizza Pizza Kid called in sick tonight and I just seen him at the club doing his best Frank the Tank meet's Michael Jackson impersonation, I'll blame him for the team's woes. I'm sure $10M/yr gets a nice VIP table where he can check the score of the Raptors game while he parties it up during a key match up. I'm sure when he strikes out at the club he immediately blames his wingman for not being able to close.

    When the ship is sinking, the rats scatter away.

    Bosh is as good as gone.

    Hedo might become the second most hated Raptor in history and he will be around for at least 2-3 more seasons before we could flip his undesired contract for something else.

    Default Integrity for Dummies

    I think he can turn it around. The first thing he needs to do before all else is pick up a copy of "Integrity for Dummies" and read if from cover to back three times.

    Looks like he wasn't prepared for Toronto's rabid fanbase

    Im talking about what we all want for the Raptors. We want greatness for them right? Thats what Im talking about. These media people that are corrupt dont scare me. Its pretty clear they are trying to cause dissention within the team by spreading lies and creating contreversy.

    WELL, IT WONT WORK!

    Didn't Hedo phone in sick and then go partying at a club? Fact or fiction?

    Does he coast around the court and smile during loses? I know this one is fact because I saw it. Fact.

    Does he always shift the blame to teammates? I've seen it many times. Fact.

    I think the media is just as frustrated at 95% of the people in here when they lay out the facts. They're venting like the majority. Are we all evil liars but you?

    According to him, all of us are agents of the media, so to answer your question:
    Yes, we are.
