    Thought this was amusing:

    Beal didn’t necessarily have it easy in his first four preseason games, but he didn’t seem prepared for what the Raptors were throwing at him. He also was growing increasingly frustrated that no matter how closely he contested Jose Calderon, the veteran point guard kept making three-pointers over him.

    “I was like, ‘What else can I do more?’ ” Beal said.

    Welcome to the big leagues, Brad!

    I am sure he will adjust soon enough. He is too talented.

    Totally agree; but we don't want Bargnani to (just) be a spacing device.
    That's where I'm also trying to come from though, if Bargnani is effective, wouldn't the game be easier and better for guys like Derozan, Lowry, JV?

    Regarding Battier/Fields, its still a bit early to make direct comparison imo, but I do see similarities in all round capabilities and the potential to be a glue guy (incl off court). Battier's top ability is his lock down defense (which was very imp. for the Heat championship) and Fields displays similar possibilities.
    Battier also contains great composure and poise, and that's something Fields has. Composure in terms of no fouls, and patience. Fields is a very good defender, but the one thing he needs to get to 'Battier' level, is his shooting.

    Trying not to get to excited about JV but it's hard not to. Every time I see him I can't help but think he's not even close to his ceiling... barely scratching the surface of what he'll be doing in 2 years, let alone 5 or 6.

    Very happy to see him try to force his offence a few times even though they were turnovers. He had the right idea but took too long to make it happen. Still, it demonstrates to me that the talent is there.

    This is the most excited I've been about a Raptor player since Bosh debuted. Watching this roster for two years,
