    everyone that comes hear thinks thats its the Alaska of basketball the winters arent really that bad compared to other cities and our summers are hot as hell.
    but if you want my advice just grab what every other player does, pair of timbs, fur-hooded jacket, hat and those big a$$ beats head phones.

    He should probably have been here during the entire summer to see how hot it was. I don't think he's complaining about the winter, but all he needs is a heavy coat with a hood. Obviously being from
    Brazil and playing in the desert his entire career, minus degree winter weather would be a shock for him

    Players on visiting teams probably never have to go outside in the winter while they are in Toronto.

    The biggest adjustment other than the cold for someone who has never lived for an entire winter in a cold weather city like Toronto is driving in the winter. They have no clue on how to drive in snow or on ice. For me that was the worst part of growing up in Buffalo; i.e. once I could drive. I absolutely hated driving in the winter. It ain't no fun to say the least. Today I am sure cars handle the cold better than they used to when I was driving in Buffalo during the winter however I imagine it still is not to enjoyable especially trying to drive in a freezing rain or in sleet or a blizzard.

    At least he isn't complaning about the weather or the city like a lot of players do. Players can always use public transit like Matt Bonner did. I guess adjusting depends in where the player was born too. Barbosa has to adjust more obviously than say Morris Peterson being from Flint had to.

    ....Buffalo.....
    Really? From a weather/winter viewpoint, glad you made it out of "the Queen City" to LA...never quite knew why they called it that (quintiessential Canadian moniker). Pre cable days when many used rooftop antennae and tuned in to the Buffalo based network channels for
