    Ross>Barnes. Should be an intersting game boy o boy did this team make a leap after being so awful last season but it just goes to show what a franchise talent brings to the team and Curry is awesome GSW games are a good watch.

    If you havent seen Barnes play yet he plays very contained is the best way I can put it lol really lets the game come to him, He doesnt scream Im going to be a franchise guy to me.

    Barnes will put up big numbers if he played with us. He would have been BC's pick if the warriors had passed on him. Remember he plays with young Klay and S.Curry who are much better shooters. This team will be scary in a few years.

    I am scared. This is exactly the kind of team that give the Raptors fits. They play fast (7th in Pace factor) and they shoot the lights out from 3-pt land (#1 in the NBA).

    Also, they are much better defensively than you expect from GS.

    I mean young in terms of guys playing with each other. They are just realizing their roles on this squad, its not like an established team that has played together for a while, like many of the teams we play against.

    Plus those stats will be last years news fast when jose and Andrea goes. Our core is made up of players that are still maturing on the NBA stage. Mathematical averages in excel are not going to mask that reality.
    I don't mean this disrespectfully but I think that is just another one of many excuses used to hide the lack of talent currently in Toronto.

    I don't think you can hide the fact that Derozan, Ross, Lowry, Val, Acy are all playing far greater roles for this team and they still have ooodles of basketball to learn.

    You can point to Pietrus, Kleiza and Jose, but I just don't think they will be hanging around.


    Also, its not an excuse, its the reality, we have a lot of players that just do not have the NBA experience and are being counted on filling large roles/holes in the roster.

    Jarrett Jack is going to torch us later on. And he's going to do it with his eyes mostly shut. Stay tuned.

    Why no Lowry?

    Not sure, he never dressed

    (He was seen going into the training room during the last game, so maybe he aggravated
    something)

    derozan is 4 th year
    Ed 3rd year
    jv, tr, qa all rooks and only jv starts
    Lowry 7 seasons and 26

    roles mean nothing, talent does, and the fact guys are playing bigger roles than their talent is the problem, no?

    I think experience is a big factor, as is familiarity. As a team we are young, in terms of our time with each other, you can actually see improvement as the team gets more comfortable with each other.

    I think that is the major reason for our recent resurgence.
