    First Raptors game I've managed to catch this year, looks promising. Bargnani did just miss a layup.

    John Lucas is really, really, really bad.

    He's actually better off being a third stringer, to play 8-9 minutes to spark.

    Yeah, absolutely. It's not really representative of his ability to have him in this role.

    He should be limited to one on one pick-up games.

    He should not be allowed to shoot unless he is falling down and/or there is less than 1 second on the shot/game clock.

    Lucas is a chucker. And he takes way too many ill advised, difficult shots.

    whole heartedly agree. A great example of why preseason is BS, lots of folks round here claiming Jose was expendable cuz JL3 was the next great thing.
    LET'S GO RAP-TORS!!!!!

    also, can we get JV some more looks? calderon just fucking ignores him like the plague. always passes to bargs who's shots rim off way outside of the paint so JV cant even get that rebound.

    the faster jv can learn the ropes of nba style play, the more lethal an option he becomes. right now so much wasted potential.

    i mean, so what if he fouls out? casey benches him for the rest of the game with even just 4 fouls. raps go over the team limit by 4 minutes into the quarter anyways.


    can i get some lowry-derozan-jv love ?!

    Actually I find that Calderone only passes to Bargs when he is completely open; always looking for Derozan or Amir...Just my observations...

    I still think Lucas is capable of handling the backup duties if Calderon is traded. All it would take is for Casey to enforce a little better shot selection.

    Really? Just curious as to why he could take over as our primary PG off the bench? The only reason he looked good in the preseason was because he was hitting ridiculous and ill advised shots. I was saying back then that I hate his shot selection, but if you were to take that away from him he really doesn't give you anything else ie. assits, steals, defence...

    If Casey were to enforce better shot selection what do you think Lucas would bring to the team as the main pg off the bench?

    Goodness, the offense is not moving well. Amir is making some stupid decisions out there.

    why must bargnani stop looking for his man once he finishes rotating? BE ACTIVE, FIND YOUR MAN, and DONT JUST WALTZ YOUR WAY BACK!

    ugh. Pisses me off.
