    That's what I get for replyin on my phone. Anyway, Jose is in his 30's and though he's a class act and overall good guy, he just doesn't fit. Even if we lose more games after he's gone, we would have assets and potentially picks back from him.

    The team is actually not built too bad. What I think it's missing is a tough minded leader who doesn't let 19 point losses disappear. He puts his foot on their throat when they're down. We have nice pieces but we are still missing a key ingredient.
    I agree with you about needing toughness. We do have toughness in AA and he's the last man on our roster...go figure?
    As for Calderon I disagree. I think he fits as good as anyone and I see Lowry as the guy who doesn't fit. The ball moves well through Jose and he's a perfect fit to teach the game to our youth. Even if we do trade him we won't get much in return. Better to extend him and trade him later...say in about 3 years after he teaches a younger back-up the finer points of the position. I like the trajectory we are on now. Continue developing the young's and scoop up a top free agent in the next couple years. MLSE broke the bank for the Blue Jays...hopefully the Raptors will be as lucky!!!

    Kahn is so stupid that somehow the timberwolves got a real nice future with some good pieces on the team and one of the best coaches in the league.
    Kahn is interesting to say the least. Rubio, Love, Pek, and some solid experienced players in Ridnour, Kirilenko, and Barea (strange how white that team is)

    Ofcourse there is also that Love is hardly happy with management/ownership from lack of success, premature moves and perhaps most of all, stiffing him on his pay day (mind you he's hardly been an iron man for that team). Then there is the 620 different PGs that team goes through (yet trade Lawson), questionable picks in general (Flynn, Wes Johnsons, Williams), and ofcourse the infamous Darko 'Mana from heaven' Milic discussion.

    I'm not sure if the guy is a evil genius ready to take over the NBA, or drunk.

    Either way its fun to watch.

    The entire Raptor Team is indispensable at this point. The players with the most upside include JV, T. Ross and barely making the list is Ed Davis IMO. I have only seen glimpses of JV and T Ross and what they can do, but their fundamentals are exactly what the team needs to move forward with. Saying that, if the right player comes along, I would not be upset if we traded them.

    We will forever be in search for a true 3. Ever Since McGrady bolted Toronto the 3 spot has been filled with false hope and optimism.

    People just love to put Kahn down because that's the norm. Yet his team is doing better in the rebuild than many other teams. This of course must be luck because Kahn is an idiot right?

    A lot can be said in favor of Kahn's work, but I'll just ask: did he ever hand out a contract as bad as BC has done multiple times?
