The Mods are such haters this should be a sticky !!
More hate from Memphis:
In some ways, Rudy reminds of a car I had in my foolish youth (and yes, that’s a redundancy). A sleek and fast Camaro, my car looked fantastic sitting in the driveway or at a stoplight, where it earned me the occasional unsolicited compliment from another driver: “Hey man, nice wheels.”
But that Camaro also spent a lot of time in the shop and in my wallet. The moving parts always seemed to be slightly out of sync – sort of like the Grizzlies’ offense with Rudy, who had a tendency to stop ball movement and repeat his favorite mistakes: shooting contested jump shots and dribbling into defenders and turning the ball over.
25 Points, 12 Rebounds, 3 Assist, 4 Steals. He had an off night shooting. I feel like he took too many threes(1-7). The think liked that he found other ways to be helpful to the team 12Rebs, 3Ast, 4Stl. Also holding Pierce to 2-11 2-7. He is more than just a scorer. Everyday this trade gets better and better. I'm really excited about the Gay/George matchup tomorrow. I personally think that Gay is the better player. I think who ever has the better game will decide who wins this game.
Rudy Gay theme song:
"Championships are what we live for, now lets go win them."Tim Leiweke
Basketball has clear winners every night --except at the draft, which is all homework, politics and chance.
I'd like to see him get the rim more. He need to improve his %FG just atleast to the .455 range
Rudy Gay its your team homie @Chr1s1anL get Fields out of there and insert Rudy Gay!
I think we all saw Rudy Gay's true value last night.
First, was the obvious, that game-winning shot against George. The Raptors paid for a guy who will be able to win them games and Gay delivered.
Second, 15 points in the final quarter. The Raptors needed a guuy who can take over the 4th quarter, get points for them when the offense goes dry.
Lastly, that play that gave Amir the tying basket. After Amir made the shot to get the Raptors within 2, while everybody was scrambling, Gay was the only one aware of what West was going to do and anticipated the pass to steal the ball and got it to Amir before he stepped on the halfcourt line and gave the Raptors Amir's game tying bucket. If the Raptors didnt make the trade, who do you think among the Raptors wouldve had the presence of mind to anticipate West's pass? I say nobody. West wouldve become the hero as Armstrong wouldve taken that pass and dribbled the clock out.
That my friends, is what the Raptors are paying $17 million for.

I like Gay's leadership. It seems that he already has more respect from the players than Casey. We should just make him a head coach and demote Casey to assistant coach. Coaching wise it shouldn't really harm our play that much, huh?
Gay and DeRozan are LEGIT!
Gay, DeRozan, Ross, Kyle and Amir hang out a lot thats team building, I dont think anyone took that kind of lead chemistry wise in Raptor land since well ever. Fields just hangs with his girl everyday.
