    well yeah thats the idea - but last year with Hedo/Roasho out there - CB was on his own in the key area - and even he was resorting to the J.
    All of which contributed to the raptors being such a terrible rebounding and defending team.

    Now you will see Davis/Alabi/Amir and even Kleiza posting up. whilst Bargs runs to his favorite spot on the ARC. And since they are fringe NBA guys you know they want to please the boss - rebound and repost to Bargs where ever he is.
    You really think so?

    Interesting.

    Stay tuned for Raptors basketball 10-11.

    Guys, I think we're underestimating the talent of Nikola Pekovic... he was projected to go as high as top 5 in the 2008 NBA Draft, but he fell to the second round because he was contractually committed to his European club long-term. Not sure what happened between then and now. Anyway, it's quite possible he'll be part of a two-man race with Darko for the starting center spot in Minny.

    Just sayin'... he's not exactly a scrub. Easily one of the best non-NBA players over the past few years.

    Sure I think they want to move him to PF so he can utilize more of his face up game - but alas many players don't improve after 4 years in the league - Bargs is likely one of them who has realized his potential.
    I couldn't bear to watch Bargs' defense in the video for too long, when scrubs like Pekovic are lighting your ass as an NBA player, you must really suck on defense. I think it is time for BC to let go of his prized possession if he can't rebound, can't box out, can't set solid screens, continues to stay at the 3 point line when he is supposed to be in there banging with guys in the paint and can't show an improved semblance of help defense coming season.

    It is also time for MLSE to fire BC and get either Jerry West, Kevin Pritchard or Steve Kerr(in order of preference but Jerry is expensive(about $12m a year to call him out of retirement)) or can go cheap and tab assistant managers from winning small market teams with shrewd drafting in the San Antonio Spurs, Portland Trailblazers and the Oklahoma City Thunder if MLSE wants to get fans back in the seats after this season(could be like the Jays attendance this season or fans could be real stupid like the Maple Leaf fans(or maybe those fans just love pain and disappointment?) and sell out Raptors games, if they sell out the Raptors games then MLSE does not need to worry as their cash cow is still there which is sad to me as a fan - owners should only own NBA teams if they are willing to spend to get teams more competitive like the NFL model discounting the Cleveland Browns and the post 1980's(possibly 90's)Oakland Raiders).

    You all know why I think BC is not a capable GM(bad negotiating skills - always overpaying, turning Raptors into Phoenix North when we don't have an Hall-of-Famer PG in Steve Nash, his complete disregard for defense(the less exciting part that is important for playoff and championship contenders in the NBA) and his man-love for Andrea Bargnani - a big man that can not rebound, box out, set solid screens, play defense and do what big men in the NBA usually do). I think he is at most a used car salesman that hypes his product, only for such gullible customer to notice immediately he bought a mediocre product and has buyer's
