    It's just a bunch of clips of him dunking. It's just streetball. No organized plays. Do you know how is his D? Can he shoot? How's his basketball IQ? At least Johnson was playing organized ball in the D-League.

    The guys on the other team aren't even playing D. It's just open lanes to the hoop. That shit doesn't happen in the NBA. He'd get knocked on his ass so fast, he'd be thinking twice about taking it to the hole the next time.

    The only NBA defense that would allow those dunks is the Raptors... so no point in us getting him.

    Why can't they sing him? Mmm. Let's think about that. It would send a bad sign to the fans, by saying the team only want to entertain and nothing else. It would send a bad sign to the players, that management doesn't care about winning. It would send a bad sign to the coaching staff, that management doesn't respect what they do. It would send a bad sign to the rest of the league and the media, that the Raptors are not a respectable organization.

    Other than that, I can't think of any reason whatsoever.

    Pretty sure Mr. 720 AKA the Air up There was in the D League last year. The fact we haven't tried him out with the dart throwing our scouts are doing probably tells you all you need to know about his potential as a pro player.

    Trey johnson is called trey johnson cause he can hit them 3's. I'm not to smart with all this signing stuff but say if we wanted to sign trey johnson to a longterm contract, like a year or 2. Is that possible?

    This is what we've resorted to?

    There's a cat in my rec league who can stand in one place and never miss. Toronto should sign him too.

    I think Jay Triano needs to punch a reporter or something so we have something to talk about. This team this season is completely devoid of drama and/or entertaining headlines.

    You play in a rec league with a cat???? That is so cool. You should shoot some video of it shooting baskets. People LOVE that sort of crap on Youtube.
