Jalen Rose played pg for the Raptors and Denver, but he played sf/sg for Indiana. I'll always remember him as a pg because that's the position he played for us.
Never, under any circumstances, take a sleeping pill and a laxative on the same night.
Another small forward who was good for us early in his Toronto career was Jamario Moon, man I loved his injury. The dunks, the energy defensively with all those random blocks, rebounding, he brought it..
I also loved Carlos Delfino, man I wish we could re-sign that guy...
UGGGHHH sorry for all those typos, shit.... I hate iPod keyss...
Injury - energy*
earliet - earlier*

Delfino rarely made mistakes, made huge shots, and was a fan favorite. The guy can play, especially those years we made the playoffs, he was always reliable.
I thought he was less of a turnover to happen than Kleiza. Delfino always played within' the game plan. That's what I saw from the number of games I saw him play.. 2007, 2008. *sigh* Those were the years..
I'm still shocked we made the playoffs with Ford, Parker, Moon/Graham, Bosh, Rasho/Bargs, still being the East was a weak conference at the time, damn...
If Kleiza can get fully healthy again, than I have no wants of him to leave, I mean, his solid play for Lithuania has been good.
Ya but i just wasnt a fan of the guy. Our team was terrible back then the reason we looked good was cause the east was garbage. Our roster right now is arguably much better and deeper
I'm actually hoping that Fields can wind up being the type of player that Parker & Delfino were at their best - solid perimeter defenders, effective secondary ball handlers, good 3pt shooters.
*sigh* Those years... Rasho at prime, Moon before shot-happy, Anthony Parker before slowing down, Ford before the overly nagging injuries, a great bench.... This team revolved around Bosh, but it also never failed to be a great offensive tempo team. Moving the ball around, getting good looks, unselfish. Miss that team. Than that damn trade that ruined everything...
Not to mention, insult to injury, Delfino was traded for the rights to Weems, who ends up signing in Moscow, and Delfino always killed us playing against the Bucks.
Fields was said to be the Shane Battier of Toronto, which in my opinion is really far-fetched.. Shane Battier is a great defender, great shooter, high IQ player, deceptively athletic. I really hope I see something within' that mold next season.
Ford, Parker, Moon/Graham, Bosh, Nesterovic. It was a club that was unselfish, knew each other well, played to their strengths (mostly.. *cough* FORD *cough*), and was a team that could get stops..
It was purely a word that is underrated now in my opinion... TEAM.
Anyways, I hope you're right, this team looks much more talented than any of the teams we've had in awhile. I gave this team a 75%, the reason why? All depends on the roster at training camp, if it stays the way it is now.. It'll be the same.
2009 killed us... Sam Mitchell fired, Jay Triano hired. Jermaine O'neal acquired, traded for Marion and Marcus Banks... Real only upside that year was Jose's free throw percentage, and Demar Derozan being drafted...
Brandon Rush just signed for $8M over 2 years. Another bargain basement price that makes Landry Fields' contract look bad.
