    Default Bummed about Ross.

    Is anyone else bummed that Ross only played 6 minutes Wednesday? What do you all think we should realistically expect from him this season?

    Well I was expecting DeMar to get traded, giving Ross the starting spot eventually.

    I mean, he was drafted higher and in a better draft class, wasn't he? Why wouldn't we be starting him from the get-go just like DeRozan? I personally see more talent in Ross.

    The way he was playing you couldn't give him more than 6 minutes in a winnable game against a conference power. His shot was not even close, he wasn't getting open, you can't risk giving up a chance at a win so early in the year just to give the rook some experience.

    Lol is it just me or does austin rivers look pretty bad so far... guess he had a bttr debut than ross (although ross had a much shorter leash)

    I think this is premature.

    The transition to the NBA is crazy enough.

    If this was the start of year 2 and he played 6 minutes, I'd be a little concerned but not after 1 NBA game.

    Check the early years of Arron Afflalo or JJ Redick to see how much time they received and then consider how they developed.... Redick especially in year 2.

    This really is a "what-have-you-done-for-me-lately" world, jeez. Even being "bummed" about Landry Fields would be way too early. He's got TWO weeks, then I got straight to "pissed" about him. Don't piss me off Landry.

    True .. but afflalo was a late first rounder .. and Reddick, while closer to Ross (11th) was always going to be a specialty player .. so wouldnt make a tonne of sense to give him heavy minutes.

    However, Im with you that its only one game .. but we gotta give this guy run. We are doomed with the lack of shooting ability between LF and DD - he is our only hope. (tangent - was watching LF shoot jumpers at practice on Raptors Today this morning .. his shot is flat out broken .. I could be worng, but I dont remember that dramatic a "hitch" in his shot in his rookie year)

    As "unfair" as it might be cause hes played well, AA needs to be on the bench. This team is very much still in building mode .. we arent going anywhere with AA .. we hopefully are with Ross (who we passed on Drummond and others to take). As the 8th pick in a loaded draft .. weve got to figure out what we have (and btw - I think we will be pleasantly surprised!)

    Three things to consider, first it was just one game, second, he did not look good in his limited minutes, 3 Jose played well and shot well while slotted in as the 2 guard.

    Experience will come, he will get comfortable, and Jose will not always be a great fit off the ball.

    LOL yes he is doing pretty bad. And he took Davis out with an accidental elbow.
