    Was this same foot that kept him out all of last season?
    It is a different foot from last year. He broke his right foot today, last year was his left.

    I think that Raptor fans are sensitive to rebounding as a stat because of being out rebounded for almost 15 years. I remember how frustrating it was watching games and seeing opposing teams getting offensive rebound after offensive rebound. I wanted to pull my hair out. It was nice to finally have a guy in Reggie who has done what no other Raptor has been able to do - get a freakin rebound. So I salute you Reggie - you will be missed.

    I am sorry Pal, the guy just broke his leg for this team and fougth till the last minute and you CAN NOT STOP your shamless propoganda for Amir and get off your soapbox.
    I just want the Raptors to win.

    If the Raptors record without Reggie is not better than I will admit that I undervalued Reggie.

    If it is better, which I expect it will be that will be satisfaction enough regardless of whether Johnson starts or not.

    That is how it will be.

    This both really bad and slightly good. It is going to do us more bad than good though. Yes it gives Amir and Ed a chance to play big minutes. But we lose our emotional leader, I think our level of energy and hustle will go down. But I'm hoping for the best, does anyone know for sure how long his injury will last, and if he will be able to grab 25 rebounds when he comes back..

    I feel badly for Reggie, but I think that the Raptors will be a better team without him.

    Am I happy that he got injured?

    Of course not.

    That notion is insane, straight up.

    Yea, yea it is.

    However, I do think that the Raptors will now be a better team and that will be a good thing for all Raptors fans.

    Raptors out rebounded the Celtics tonight 44 - 35.

    Celtics shot 54% and the Raptors 45%

    Celtics won.

    Couple of things:

    1. This is a big blow to the Raps' ability to make a deadline deal. Reggie was their biggest asset as an affordable expiring deal AND a player that could genuinely help a playoff team looking for some rebounding help as a 4th big. That value is gone now. I wouldn't be surprised to see the raps hang onto him and try to sign him to a cheap contract in the offseason now, then used as a mentor type player for Amir and Davis.

    2. Rebounding IS important, and the player likely to miss Reggie the most is Andrea Bargnani. Without Reggie in the lineup, Andrea is going to work much harder on the defensive glass. It'll be interesting to see if that saps his energy and translates to other areas of his game.

    Default Bargs fights Shaq and Garnett

    Did anyone see Bargs knock Shaq flat on his ass or was I dreaming?
    Did anyone see Garnett complaining about Bargs pushing him around during the toss up the refs had to come and seperate Bargs from pushing Garnett who was mouthing off to the refs
    that big bad Bargs was playing unfair, while Bargs never said a word but spoke with action.
    Shaq did not call Bargs a woman like Bosh.

    I submit the character of this team has changed for ever.
    Just because Bargs is a quiet giant people assume he is not tuff enough.
    Man he gave Shaq and Garnett all they could handle thank you very much, Bargs.
    They played tuff, ruff, mean, and scared the Celtics so bad they had to bring their A game
    to make sure they won at all costs.

    But did they win, on the score board yes but Bargs took horrible shots that no one could hit
    he was juiced. So let say Bargs scores his usual the score would have been 115 - for Raps
    because Peja, Kleiza, The BLUR, Jose, Amir, all shot great.
    If Baby Davis does not save there 2nd shift, the Raps win easy.

    I would like to start a new post for the people who complain about Bargs rebounding.

    SHUT UP is my headlines for many a player has been ruined by trying to change what people want them to be Bargs is Bargs he has been reading what we say HELLO he
    has an ego folks so what happened to the GREATEST 7 FOOT THREE POINT SHOOTER WE HAVE EVER HAD HE WONT SHOOT THE THREE ANYMORE SO NOW THEY SAY HEY WHY WONT YOU SHOOT THE THREE ANYMORE.

    Leave him alone all you who do not appreciate what we have.
    All over the league they are talking about Bargs and how to stop him the other teams
    set their defences and best players on him.
    In T O we complain he can not rebound.
    SHUT UP
    The experts said Raptors are worst team in the league.
    Make them eat their words GUYS !!

    A little bit of a rant there but I'll agree Bargnani did not back down which is more than we can say for past Raptors players.

    However when Shaq has 16/9, Garnett 26/11, and Davis 18/3 I do not think he is the stud your post makes him out to be (nor the rest of the TOR bigs).

    Personally I was impressed with the effort as he did not quit despite a poor shooting night.

    This comment was way out of line. The truth is, the Raps have been out rebounded in the past. It is the stat that most of us desire prior to Reggie's arrival. When we had Kapono, the team was perceived as soft and BC made appropriate changes. I'm not discounting Reggie's impact.

    They out rebounded the Celts and still lost the game.

    Playing 4 against five on offense in their home court gave way to a 22-point deficit.

    They also lost because the wings (Weems and Derozan) struggled.

    They lost because the bigs were allowed to roam for alley-oops that shifted the momentum back to the Celts.

    More importantly, we lost because the Celts played great defence. Bargs was shut down because he was not allowed to get the ball.

    It was only when Triano started to mix up defensive schemes late in the game where the Celts got confused. More importantly, when he decided to put shooters in the game to spread the floor that the deficit was cut to as close to 6.

    Coaching was partly to blame here. The Lakers game (although resulting in a loss), was coached better due to changes in the defensive schemes on a per possession basis. At the beginning of the third quarter of this game, the deficit was allowed by Triano to creep up to double digits without a time-out or a substitution until it was tool late. I partly blame the coach as well.

    Could we have won this game? Probably not. However, for a team that is 5th in the league in defense (the Celts) while at HOME, we could've made it closer and much more difficult for them.

    Of course scoring is most important - as it is in every sport where the team with the most points wins. However, next to scoring rebounding is usually the most telling stat in basketball. The team with more rebounds wins!

    If our offense was better then we wouldn't need so many offensive rebounds to win. So yeah, I would say rebounding is kinda important.

    More importantly, no one's talking about Reggie's plummeted trade value. If he's out for a loooong time then he's stuck here till the end of the year.

    Other teams are not stupid, well maybe the Clippers

    They know that Reggie's rebounding numbers are inflated.

    Not that Reggie is not a good rebounder, he is.

    However it does not make up for his other deficiencies.

    Reggie has developed a big "cult following" among Raptors fans and I am happy for him.

    However, his overall skill level and horrible lack of skill offense, other than his offensive rebounding and despite some occasional nice interior passing reduces his market value even with his rebounding. In addition his overall defense is just average.

    Reggieites will always love him and good for him, however his trade value was not much before the injury though I will agree that it is a lot less now with him having a second serious foot related injury in two seasons and his age of 30.

    That's what happens when you throw him in there for 30+ minutes a night.

    Bargs didn't come out with enough intensity, he picked his intensity up as the game went along. That initial play of the celtics was rough and tumble and as the refs let them play was a big disadvantage to the raptors. Garnett was aloud to bump and hold andrea for the whole quarter while shaq and garnett were getting good low post position on the opposite end.
    The worst call of the night was the charge shaq took on Andrea. He was inside the circle and was late on his rotation. That bold headed freak joey crawford is a terrible ref but some how the league puts him up on pedestal.
    If the raps want to play with the celtics at their place they better play more physical for the whole game
