    Default Give me your column ideas/summer mail-bag

    Hey guys, I'm William Lou (not Lou Williams, weird right?) from the main page. I'm looking to fill a column for next week, but I'm running low on ideas.

    My goal is to spin it into a mailbag of sorts. If you leave your ideas here, there's a good chance it will be touched upon in the post.

    Thanks guys. Looking forward to your thoughts.

    What is the team support staff doing, or can they do to make the team better.

    For example, they brought in McKechnie. They got a supper koolatron for therapy. What else? Oxygenated Gatorade?

    How about a look at the assistant coaches. Who actually does what?

    What about the schedule or training regimen for several of or each of the Raptor team members over the summer? What are they doing? What does the team want them to do?

    How are they using the advanced analytics? What about the super duper video cameras and play recordings?

    How about a real forecast of the trade deadline trades that Masai may be looking at/hoping for when the usual team implosions happen with the usual suspects. Like what could he get from the Knicks when it looks like they are going to miss the playoffs?

    A couple of items come to mind:

    1) Apart from the starting five, who appeared in 56 games together, it seems that Coach Casey hardly has a set lineup. I remember some strange ones during the season. There were two lineups--starters plus Salmon, starters plus Patterson--that appeared in 26 games, but it's all downhill from there. The number of minutes per game for any of the lineups is astoundingly low. Also, none of the top five-man lineups seems to have been particularly effective in terms of + - results. What gives?

    2) Last pre-season, the coaches spent almost all the time on defence, so that when the season began, we were left with isolation plays galore. What do the coaches have in mind for the offence this coming season?
