    Alabi can't be judged, I've seen play mediocre in Summer League , but he needs to work on his aggressiveness and his awareness and he will be a good bench player in the years to come.
    I personally don't think Alabi has what it takes to hack it in the NBA. I remember watching him in Vancouver at the start of the Season.. It was really comical watching Jarett Jack almost lose his mind because Alabi was incapable of following simple instructions and struggled with running basic pick and roles. Not to mention his lack of intensity. All he has going for him is he is a true 7 footer which doesn't amount to much if you have the basketball IQ of a six year old.

    I think bayless at best is a project, but hes not worth the effort. His game or lack there of is so deeply ingrained as him as a player that I think no matter what system you throw at him he won't be able to adapt. All in all he is not that good and I don't think he will ever be.. I don't want to wait 4 years for him to "get it" I'd rather see the raps have their pick at one of dozens of PG's better then him who are already proven.

    most: Amir

    least: a three man/three game rotation of Bargnani, Barbosa, Weems.

    James Johnson engulfs the team with defensive spirit, hes a beast and so is Barbosa.

    Least? Yeah, Sonny for sure.
    Most? Just to stir the pot a bit, I'm gonna say...JuJu.
    Yes, that's right, Julian Wright. Obvioulsy he wasn't ACTUALLY the most effective, but this is my protest vote against Jay Triano. He either slept with Triano's wife or shot his puppy, I mean, there HAS to be a logical explanation for not playing your best defensive wing (JJ is now tied with him in that category) on a spectacularly bad defensive team. When JuJu is on the court, good things almost always seem to happen. The ball doesn't stick on offence, he passes it beautifully, finishes well at the rim the few times he takes a shot, and his defence speaks for itself. When he's on the court, the team plays better. Period. So he has my vote as (potentially) the most effective Raptor.

    weems sucks.. and bayless is way too eager to chunk up a bad shot at a bad time.. i'm not a total fan of barbosa's shot selection but he can definitely pull through for us in times of need. and whoever was hating on calderon was a clown. he has incredible court vision. a great asset.

    I would just like to see if Wright has some game these days. He just does not play. And you would figure in a back to back he might get some court time. Again we wonder what he might have done wrong or whether Triano has a plan for the future. Cause the plan in the present seems lacking.

    PS: I like a lot of what Bayless has shown. Both in scoring and better at sharing the ball. And Weems is still a mystery. He seems to have a Barbosa like ability to effect a game. Not as consistent obviously, but can he be a solid bench in the future?

    “I have no idea who Chukwudiebere Maduabum is, but on his Draft Express profile, he’s listed as Chu Chu. I think he’s worthy of picking just for that. He immediately is in the running for best All-Time NBA name.” -Tim W.

    Look through his game log. He is the model of inconsistency. He is a black hole on offence and does very little besides score. Don't get me wrong, for his role on the team that is fine. However when you look through his game log here you see nights of brilliance and nights of 'meh'. Yes he has been injured all year but the thread was about least effective. The three I mentioned have all had great games followed by horrible games hence the three man rotation for the award - again, all my opinion but I think the game logs back up the claim.

    The guy is playing on two bum ankles and is playing limited minutes. He's the heart and soul of this team.
