    Default Pick One - Who Gets Canned or Traded First this Season?

    Im picking Triano as the first one fired.
    Then probably Jack or Calderon with Evans gets traded somewhere.

    Just a hunch.

    calderon. the raps get raped by guards too often to keep ignoring the problem with the biggest contract at that position.

    gotta package him with evans before evans burns himself out and still has the "monster rebounder" tag on him..

    but meh... i dont care to play armchair GM... i'd still watch every game if we had cleveland's roster... and i'd still pick them to win every game.

    Right I mean it's not like Jack isn't getting raped by opposing PGs too.

    The way I see it we have too much invested in both Jack and Jose. But you can't ship both of them out together unless it's a multi-way deal. And if you do that, the PG coming back doesn't know any of the plays and there will be more agony.

    Jose and Jack will stay until next season when the new CBA's wrinkles are understood.

    i'm not saying jack is the reincarnation of gary payton or anything, but he's less of a liability defensively than calderon

    i'm not even trying to hate on jose... i dig him as a player.. i actually enjoy watching him play more than jack... on the offensive end... but thats not the end the raps are losing games at.

    anytime i've watched a game and said "oh, this dude is going to blow by calderon"... they do. every single time.

    Wish it was Jose, but he isn't moveable right now. I hope it isn't Jay, we need consistency at the helm. Our recent trades haven't been going well lately anyway... anyone see Marco playing like an allstar and what's-his-name we traded him for sitting at the end of the bench?

    I do think Triano is a problem as a coach,he makes alot of silly errors all over the place..i dont think he is capable of managing a game with this personel properly...too many red flags i see....doesnt adjust well either IN game...

    and marco is inconsistent...theres a reason he couldnt get off the bench in 4 seasons...he'll come back to earth shortly.

    Even if he comes back to being the Marco we had, he's still given more in 5 games than a guy who can't even get off the bench of a 1-81 team in preseason... just saying. I agree that Jay hasn't been great, but we suck anyway, might as well give one of our coaches a chance to improve - he's not what's holding us back from a title shot this year!

    Raps have a team that can compete night in and out with 3/4 of the teams in the league. Its way to early to be talking about this, we are only 3 games in! With a completely new lineup its going to take time for things to fall into place, and for Triano to get a more concrete rotation in place.

    I'm pretty sure you don't want Triano fired. Another coach might bench Bargnani unless he improved his rebounding and defense.

    Bargani is the most tradable assets we have and he may play himself right out of Toronto and if Ed Davis comes off injury and shows potential I wouldn't hesitate to go out and get a defensive point guard or another first round draft pick. Sure barg's is a "potential" all-star but defense wins championships which is something barg's can't give you. All that being said I don't think BC would have the balls to do it given the fact he is in a contract year and Toronto fans are very critical of every action he takes.

    I was with you right until you said Colangelo was afraid for his job. I doubt it. Who would they replace him with? The current MLSE trend is to hire people who have succeeded in the past. That narrows the number of people who can replace him. People would crucify them if they got some assistant GM to replace him. Unless the logo wants to come out of retirement or someone of that ilk the list of replacements is thin. I like the idea of trading Bargs though. He should be spiking in value in a couple of weeks. We'd never trade him because of all the "potential" but someone has to go and right now neither of our pgs are worth anything.

    Oh and Triano is done...PJ was brought here for a reason.

    I believe Dec 15th is the day players signed over the summer can be traded... so if the Raptors keep piling up the loses Triano will be the scapegoat and the first to go... otherwise we will have to wait and see who is desperate enought to take on Jose's contract. However, if I was GM I would look to move Jose and Jack - bring in another PG (don't know who), give Marcus Banks more PT, and let Barbosa play PG minutes when it is desparately needed

    I say Triano gets canned first.

    and Jack might be playing himself right out of town.

    Jay ain't going anywhere. He's the only coach willing to give Bargs, 35+ mins and 20 shots per game. Jose ain't going anywhere due to his mammoth contract. Our record could be 2-20 and Jay ain't going anywhere. BC said it best when he elaborated that the expectations were low. We've seen what John Wall did for Washington and the upcoming draft class is oozing with potential (top 5 picks anyway). Carlesimo will never touch the helm. He's too volatile. We are going to be bad this season so why change coaches?

    This is why Sloane's been around as long as he did. He commands respect - period. When you see Jay, he looks like a freshly baked Beaver Tail that melts in your mouth. When he dropped the F-bomb on live TV, he even sounded kinda nice about it. It was like he wanted to be angry, dropped the f-bomb and then had a momentary episode of guilt. Kinda like a nun that stole an extra cookie at the dinner table at the convent.

    There is not much to think about here, if the Raptors continue their losing ways it will be very difficult for MLSE to extend BC. My guess is COlangelo gets canned first.
