    Kapono was really good that one year he played with Shaq and Wade and the only job he had to do was stand in one spot and make absolutely wide open shots. Then Colangelo signed him to a pretty penny thinking he would still get those looks with the dynamic duo of Bosh and Bargnani taking all the pressure.

    Kapono was somewhat capable of dribbling and taking a shot as an alternative to taking a three, Novak can't even do that while having all the same negatives. He's a poor man's Kapono and if he becomes part of the rotation, that's scary, because it will be a sign of just how bad we are. So I'll hope he will be traded or an end of the bench guy.

    He was a part of the Knicks rotation the past two seasons, and they were a playoff team both times.

    So i haven't read anything about the 2016 1st round pick being protected. So if that pick is not protected, that pick could be a freaking lottery pick! lol. This trade is amazing.

    My biggest complaint with Kapono was that he decided that he wanted to become more than just a 3pt shooter after being signed by Toronto to be a 3pt shooter. It still haunts me to remember all the times he caught the ball on the perimeter and, instead of taking a wide open 3pt shot, he dribbled in couple steps and took a much more contested long 2pt shot... *shudders*

    If Novak was acquired to take corner 3's, I don't want him doing anything other than taking corner 3's. Please don't come to Toronto and suddenly decide to expand your game to become a 'more complete' player, unless the expansion involves becoming a defensive stopper.

    It's only a lottery pick if both NY and Denver are lottery teams. If NY is a lottery team and Denver is not, Denver has the right to swap picks, leaving Toronto with Denver's 2016 1st round pick. It's really Denver that Toronto needs to worry about in 2016, not NY.

    You realize it's going to be the lower of Denver or NYK's draft pick, so the only way it's a lottery pick is if both Denver and NYK are lottery teams that year. Certainly possible, but not great odds.

    That says more about how New York gutted their roster to get Anthony. Btw, this year he barely played in the playoffs.

    They just had their best regular season in sixteen years and went beyond the first round for the first time in thirteen years.

    this thread needs to be moved to the "Let's NBA" forum... because i'd like to never mention Bargs and Raptors in the same sentence again unless it's along the lines of "JV gets career high rebounds against the Knicks because...... PRIMO"
