Hmmm .... interesting. Even Doug Smith thinks it might be time to consider taking Andrea out of the starting line-up and replaced with the energy and hustle of Amir Johnson. Is that still a little too drastic to do at the moment, or should it be something the team seriously considers right now?
As well, Doug suggests that it might be time to see what Weems can do with more playing time. I have to say that coming into the season I thought Wright was going to be one of the biggest acquisitions we made during the off-season mostly because of what he brings on the defensive end. Well so far, Wright has been great disappointment both offensively and most surprisingly defensively too.
So, if Jay isn't going to shake things up in the starting line-up, why not make some changes on the bench and give some of the young guys an opportunity to shine with the hopes that it ignites a little energy and hustle with the rest of the roster.

Do you take a gamble and start Amir Johnson for Bargnani, knowing full well Johnsonís likely to get two fouls in three minutes and Bargnani would be back in there? It gives you a dose of energy and rebounding in the starting five, thatís for sure. Bargnani has never, ever, warmed to the idea of coming off the bench and he certainly hasnít been the worst of the Raptors offenders this year.
So perhaps thatís the move I make.
And maybe itís time to see what Sonny Weems can bring you Ė besides a penchant for shooting the ball every time he touches it Ė in Wrightís role. Canít be worse.
