He would have gotten away with it if it wasn't for those darn his and their "dumb dog". The Raptors have only one dog: The Junkyard Dog.
Has anyone heard when he's expected back?
I heard he was supposed to be back on the floor at practice today (I think I heard that on the broadcast last night, and I see a few fantasy sports places reporting it too).
Friday he was a game time decision.
.... minimum 100 possessions, the best defender in the league by overall PPP allowed is Andrea Bargnani. .. uh.... I ...BTW, your top-ten, min 100 possessions: Bargs, Hansbro, Taj, Gortat, Jordan, Collison, Bass, Asik, Holiday, Blake. TWO BULLS RESERVES!!!So it's not like Bargs is among some weird outliers. Gortat, Jordan, Gibson, Asik, Holiday, Collison all with strong reps as defenders.https://twitter.com/HPbasketballShould note on that list, it's Steve Blake. Not Blake Griffin.
Credit goes to forme123 on RaptorsForum for finding quote.
edit: Note: Overall PPP = Overall Points Per Possession (I believe).

By the way, I looked through the twitter feed of the source, Hardwood Paroxysm, and this is the top 10:

Nick Collison (or Darren? I'm guessing Nick on OKC)
*EDIT* I'm sorry RaptorsFan4Life already included this.
Bargnani is playing great, but I don't really understand this statistic. It obviously is not the same as points per 100 possessions (ie, defensive rating) because if I look on basketball-reference.com, Bargnani has a DRating of 105.
Doing a quick search of all players who played a minimum of 10 games, Bargnani is ranked 197th:
105 is pretty good, but that doesn't make him a great defender. I'd think anything below 100 is the mark of a great defender. 105 is about an average defender. The one thing that I like about his defense this year is that he doesn't appear to be a liability on that end like he has been showing in previous years.
Bargnani ftw! Nvm all star this guy should win MVP just based on how badly his team needs him lol. This is very encouraging to read based on this it would be logical to assume that our defense as well as our offense will be improving with his return, can't wait to get him back we need him.
