    Default I wish we had Ed Davis back

    this is pretty much what we traded for Ed Davis and Calderon
    Calderon would of left anyways so I wont talk about him anymore

    but dammit Colangelo always screwing up and shitting the bed. I know Ed Davis may not be doing great in Memphis but he was growing into a viable rotation big man with us and now with Ujiri cleaning up Colangleo's mess and seeing what we got for Gay, id wish we could have Ed Davis back playing at the level he was before he left for these guys who probably wont be around for much longer anyways

    Of all the moves that the Raps should lament, this is fairly low down the list. Is ED really better than Hansbrough?

    his tenure here was better then anyone we got from sacramento
    and if this is a rebuild now why not still have him here ... cant have a line up of all superstars. got to have your grinders too

    and we are raptors fans, we haven't aimed high in years ... if the new management doesn't turn this around we are entering clippers pre paul and griffin territory of ineptitude here

    How much you will to spend to re-sign a guy like Davis? Cause we get all the same attributes from Hansbrough for $3M.

    Some Raps fans aim higher than others, but this is a bit sad. We have been in Clippers territory for years but finally are starting to show signs of intelligent life in the front office.

    Keeping Davis wasn't going to do anything to help us avoid ineptitude. One could say he was part of the problem (i.e. lotto picks who aren't very good).

    ya know I'm guilty for falling in love with the odd sub par player myself. But you need to understand that the reason these guys try so hard, and play with such heart, is because it's often their only NBA skill. We cheer the Reggie Evans, Pops Mensah Bonsous, Ed Davis's and Tyler Hansbroughs of the league, but really there is only one or two spots on an entire roster for guys like that. I bet there are guys in this forum that can shoot FTs better than Reggie Evans. We need to stop swooning every time a player says they love T-Dot, and as a few others have said...set the bar a little higher.

    I bet that list is actually quite long.

    Man, I hated it when that happened. Not that he was All-World or anything, but a nice skill set and would have helped the Raps at that time.
