    Default Bad starts

    4 games, 4 double-digit deficits before the end of the 1st quarter. I think it's time Jay consider giving Jose a spell with the starting unit again.

    Yea I was thinking in the same way. While I am a huge fan of "if it ain't broke, why fix it?" phenomena, I believe that IT is broke and we SHOULD fix it. The last four games, we got very lucky at the end of the games to come out with a victory. Clearly, you can notice when Calderon comes in for Jack, our team goes on a run, and we are really struggling in the first quarters.

    Well, you would say "our starting line-up has more chemistry with Jack running it", I do not believe in that one little bit. If you guys were watching the games early in the season, you would know that both Calderon and especially Jack were struggling with their shot. I mean Jack in the beginning was HORRIBLE, to the point that I would rather want Banks to run the team. Now Calderon is shooting the ball much better, and Jack is both passing and shooting the ball much better.

    My Solution: Jay should give Calderon another chance to get his job back. I really think Calderon is much better than Jack, and that they shouldn't even be compared with each other. As much Calderon runs the second unit beautifully, our team is really vulnerable when he is not in the court. We have very gettable home games coming up, and we can afford to do little bit of testing before this home stand ends. I really want Jay to settle this matter before the all-star break. I am not saying that Calderon in the starting unit will work, but I just want to see how it turns out....

    Hey Rapman...I like your awesome name!!

    It is easy to see when the players on the floor are about to give up a large lead. For all the strides that JT has made, making quick adjustments in the first half seems to be a problem.

    You see good coaches take time outs early in the game...even with a small lead...when they see a bad trend.

    Not sure Jose starting is the solution, but it's worth a quick sub if it happens again.

    Calderon + 2nd Unit = Great production
    Calderon + 1st Unit = Superior production due to the chemistry with Chris Bosh

    Is it me.... Calderon tends to give his assist to PF *cough* Chris Bosh and Amir Johnson*cough* more than other positions

    As far as any point guard controversy goes I gotta ask this question to the fans. Name the last elite point guard to win a championship? The teams that win always have great wing men and one great big man but the places that you just need solid guys are pg and c. It's not the steve nash'
    s and jason kidd's that win titles it's the derek fisher's and ron harper's. So you can make up for not having a superstar point with a otherwise great starting five. This is why jack works with the starting five better then the second unit. Jose is an incredible luxury coming off the bench with the skills he brings to the floor and is capable of changing the game and making his teammates better.
    limpin ain't easy, but I make it look good...

    Do you really want to go back to the switching on everything days of old? Historically bad defense? Please no, man.

    They funny thing is that the Raptors does not have a great wing men, and great big man "defensively" (other than Chris Bosh but we can justified Bargnani)
