    mainly agree beside Triano: D and DeRozan: C. Maybe Bosh is an A- and Bargs a B+.

    No real disagreement except that Rasho hasnt been given any real chance/role to warrant a C.

    An underforming team is what its been.....an ethusiastic C

    I think you are being way over generous with some of the "B" grades. Out of the group that you gave a "B+ to "B-" to I would only include Bargnani and Jack. Everyone else in my opinion is a C+ to C-.

    I would upgrade Hedo to a C+

    I would downgrade Jack to a B-. He has been pretty ineffective when paired with Calderon, especially in the 4th quarter.
    Bosh is a dissapointment as usual for me. this team has much more talent than cleveland and yet a much worse record. why is that? because lebron is an authentic super duper star capable of carrying his team to new heights. bosh is a star, but an average one, hence the average record.

    i love jack. plays well off the ball, can trail guys on the baseline, and can take a bump. really impressed. "ineffective when paired with calderon" is the key phrase.

    Much more talent than cleveland? Despite having a 90 million dollar roster? How do you figure?

    the choking mo will? the useless shaq in defense of the screen and roll? verajao is solid. parker is decent. jj hickson should be the 4th big in a rotation off the bench. west is a good but troubled player. gibson can make big shots but doesn do anything else. jamario moon? he is athletic and otherwise mediocre. do you see another top notch player on this roster? i don't, unless your buying the bogus mo williams hype.

    not to mention the inept mike brown as the coach? you know the guy whos offense is so predictable and is prone to meltdowns and outburst on the sidelines?

    I like what Eric did. I probably couldn't do it any better than that so I won't bother.
