    Default "rumbles of curiosity" from Raps in Arenas

    Outside of Orlando's flirtations, I can only claim to have heard what are best described as "rumbles of curiosity" from the suddenly starless Toronto Raptors. Wouldn't describe it as anything more serious than that, especially when the $14.5 million salary-cap exception that the Raptors created in a sign-and-trade with Miami when Chris Bosh bolted isn't big enough to absorb Arenas' salary-cap number this season. Or when Canada's strict gun laws could well make acquiring Arenas, after a felony conviction, rather complicated even if the Raps were game.

    If Toronto traded for Arena, I would take back every single good thing I have ever said about Colangelo.

    The only way I would ever do this trade is if we got back a shitload of picks(first and secondrounders). I mean no less than 4 or 5 picks to absorb the contract and take arenas.
    What if... Blazers had drafted both Drexler, Jordan?

    From 1992 Beginner's Guide to the NBA Finals, The Oregonian's special section. Published 6/3/1992.

    Michael Jordan was the #3 pick in the 1984 draft, after Portland selected Sam Bowie second.

    In that case, BC should not spend the trade exception on someone who's not photogenic! The Raps maybe draft lottery bound this year but gosh darnit... WE'VE GOT STANDARDS!!

    In the pre-season Arenas faked and injury to get excused from playing so that a teammate could get a shot at some PT. I think his heart is in the right place but his mind, or at least his logic, is as dumb as a door nob. Pass because there's a chance he does something stupid and isn't allowed into Canada.

    Only if we get JaVale McGee and a couple first rounders. And I don't see that happening. So no.

    I would completely change my mind about Colangelo as it would be a completely idiotic move and B.C. would never do it, but sirchillywilly would love having a guy of Arenas character on this team

    Look, you made up some shit in another thread saying that I support ideas of acquiring Arenas and/or Delonte(?) West while berating the Euro players or something to that effect-step off with that facetious balderdash buddy-ro. I never have posted anything as such in this forum....smh

    I do not support the Raptors getting Arenas nor West- comprehend
    ?

    As well you seem to love to put my name in your posts..........smh lol

    Default Bring Him In

    I"m pretty sure he would be the best player on our team. We all know Colangelo doesn't know how to draft players or sign them! so why not bring in Arenas? We actually have someone who can take over a game and win it for us in the fourth!

    In Washington, all eyes are on John Wall now, there's no need for Gilbert Arenas! we traded for jermaine o'neal who was due 42 million for 2 seasons way past his prime!! Yet no one cared!

    Bring Him to Toronto! We're just gonna waste our draft and trade exception on someone useless anyways knowing Colangelo!!

    Can't envision this happening. The Raptors might be star-starved, but they're not desperate.
