    Default Birdman?

    The nuggets just amnestied Chris Anderson. Personally I'm neutral and could care less but was curious what others think. Should the raptors put a low-ball bid on him for a backup or 3rd string center? Or is Jonas and gray enough?

    Nope.

    Honest question: does he have any offensive game to speak of?

    Not a huge fan of the antics, but it's always nice to have some shot blocking down the middle from your 3rd string. Beats Magloires hunchback-negative vertical leap defence.

    Ya I was thinking if we got him it would be because he's an energy guy definitely not his offence. Players like him, Reggie Evans, even scalabrine have made a career of it. They get the team pumped for doing things like blocking shots getting rebounds or in scalabrine's case, stepping on to the floor. I wouldn't mind him as a 3rd stringer but the price would have to be low. He's a crowd favourite but no offensive game to speak of. He can blo shots though.

    I've always liked him, and from everything I hear he's really become a good guy who gives back to the community. I hope, for his sake, that the most recent rumours are indeed just some hot-air from a jealous spurned groupie. That said, I really don't see him bringing much that Aaron Grey doesn't bring. I'd rather roll with a tight 5-man big rotation of JV, AG, AB, ED, and AJ. (Unless AJ someone is moved, in which case sure, he'd be a solid depth guy.)

    Barry Bonds has a better chance of playing in the NBA than Anderson.

    if he'll accept the vet minimum then why not? He can defend, rebounds with energy. On this team he wouldn't get more than 10-15 mins on any given night anyways, but you know he'd defend, rebound and be a presence. Not the best option out there but we could use another big body for garbage minutes.

    Fuck Birdman and fuck Lil Wayne too. But I would take Andersen as a energy guy off the bench if the price is right...

    I do not want this guy or his alleged child porn turned extortion shenanigans anywhere near this team. They just got rid of a knucklehead, do not need a new one.

    You really should learn the truth behind the story before typing such disgusting and false words.

    To answer the thread on vet min contracts between Birdman or Magloire I would go JM.
