    Default Some Observations

    1.) If DeRozan can hold his rebound rate and improve his body just a bit more. Their is no reason he can't be our starting 3 next year

    2.) Terrence Ross is a fantastic defender and should be our starting SG by the beginning of next season

    3.) Boss Davis is killing it of late and is increasingly making Bargnani irrelevant

    4.) Even though Calderon is our best trade bait at the moment. We really need to resign him. He is fantastic PG insurance and can play off guard as well.

    Don't even bother estimating the amount,, I can't even count how many times we've been wrong in predicting Colangelo's decisions

    My observation the last 3 games:

    The Raps are a much better team without Bargnani AND Lowry. I'm haven't given up on Lowry yet but he really needs to change the way he play. The team is just so much better offensively with a pass first PG like Jose.

    Defensively, what can i say? they're competing hard, they're communicating, they're playing with passion. They look like an NBA team again.

    Seriously? Lowry plays what, 15 games with a new team (a chunk while injured) and now he is pretty much worth less than Rubio? Jeez.

    You gotta give him a bit more time than that...

    I think if we could do it. Then we should try to trade Lowry for Jennings, that would be a dream come true. I love Lowry but if that trade is available then BC should do it in a heartbeat. Jennings needs a change of scenery and him and DeRozan would tear it up!

    How quickly people jump ship you guys realize Lowry played at an allstar level in those 1st 3 games easily putting up 17 7 7 a night. Give us a healthy Lowry in a line up that doesnt have to bother with Bargnani and he will provide what was advertised. Let the poor guy heal up in the mean time good job calderon, now please provide this off the bench as well.

    Here what I observed: 1.) Bargnani looks great in a suit. 2.) Lowry doesn't need to be traded or need to come off the bench to earn his rightful spot as the starter of this team. 3.) Lets not talk about Calderon's extension. He had a great game. He increased his value as a trade commodity moving forward.

    You're right Lowry doesn't look as good in a suit, but this was his best game so far this season. First time his teammates have had as many touches as he has.

    Agree with first 3 points. Strongly disagree with fourth point. Jose will get exposed defensively ....two good games increase his trade value but he needs to go.

    I like what Davis is doing. He's making best use of the opportunity. I hope he continues and establishes himself as a Starter.

    Regarding an extension for Jose, I doubt he'll resign after what he's gone through as a Raptor.

    Easy now. I'm convinced that if the scoring load isn't on Lowry's shoulder, he should be fine distributing. His early numbers are only second to Lebron. Umm, let's not forget that he's outrebounding Bargs who happens to be a foot taller than him. I don't have amnesia. He's still the pg moving forward.

    Casey can get Jennings to play some team D. He can't possibly be worse than Jose and Lowry hasn't been exactly stellar on Defense either
