    He needs to be here early to find a much more expensive bachelor pad and to sign the dotted line on his new contract on July 1st.

    Could be, though an early July, on the 7th, signing would surprise me a bit.

    I was thinking he might wait until after the Bosh situation is resolved. That of course could be resolved by July 1st also.

    Keeping in mind that free agents can't actually sign until July 7th.

    Mmm. I don't want to read too much into it, but to me, I think it might mean that he's going to be in Toronto sometime in June!!!!

    I hope the raps do resign Johnson. Personally everytime he checked in I would get excited to see the hustle and energy he brought and I would love to see him grow more in T-Dot.

    It is clear that is what his tweet "means". A fifth grader could understand that.

    However, the thread title uses the word "implies" which I choose on purpose rather than "means"

    The definition of implies is

    2 : to involve or indicate by inference, association, or necessary consequence rather than by direct statement

    http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/implies

    So because he states in his tweet that he is going to be in Toronto it can not imply that. It must imply something else

    Question:

    Since Johnson is technically not a free agent until July 1st can the Raptors offer him an extension this month?

    I think he's implying that all his shorties in TO better get ready to party.



    Edit: do people use the term shorty anymore?

    you kids and your music....

    By the way it appears that Johnson can't be extended at least according to the way I read the cap. A player who isn't under a rookie contract can not be extended unless they have a current contract of four years or greater. Johnson's current contract is for only three years.

    Could very well be.

    As I understand it their (shorty and shawty) meanings are slightly different with shawty having more of a sexual overtone. At least that is how I understand it.

    If we sign Johnson and already have Evans, and sign a big like Udoh, we might end up with three defensive bigs + Bargnani. Bosh's scoring power needs to be replaced and if Turkoglu is out, it doesn't leave us with a lot of options anymore. Raps should buy a pick in the later state and see if they can get their hands on someone like Elliot Williams from Memphis.

    Shorty and shawty are the exact same word...just a regional pronunciation difference. Southerners say "shawty", a guy from NYC will say "shorty."

    In any case, refers to a hot chick...not necessarily any sexual overtones involved.

    To associate Reggie Evan's with defense is to live a past reality.

    Evans today couldn't guard a fire hydrant if he was a dog that had just consumed two gallons of water.
