    Default Kenny Smith: "The Toronto Raptors have a slight window."

    If someone can get a link for the Inside The NBA aired Thursday night, Jan 31st, it would be awesome, because Kenny Smith said some interesting about trying to guard both Derozan & Gay. Seems like the American media is extremely high on Derozan, & what Gay can do for the team.

    really? everything I am reading is shitting all over us. one article claimed Davis was the most valuable player in the trade and 5 years from now will be the best of the 5.

    It's on nba.com.

    It's nice that the Raps are getting some love on TNT but i completely disagree with Smith. It's going to be tough for the Raps to make the playoffs this year. They're in such in a deep hole right now. They're 6.5 games behind Boston i believe. That's a long climb. And i said this before, NO WAY Boston misses the playoffs. With or without Rondo they're going to be there.

    By the way, crazy that DeRozan is getting so much love on TNT. Smith tonight, and Shaq the other night called him a go to guy

    I wouldn't call him a go-to guy, but a lot of people are high on his athleticism and his ability to score.. It seems like scoring and athleticism is the premium now...

    36 games left. Just finish 24-12 if wanting to make playoffs. Yes, very tough, but with Boston possibly falling, & trade deadline coming soon, time will tell. East always has a team or two with the -.500 record getting in.

    If the team gel's quickly, I think we could maybe?

    We can make the playoffs. If we find a way to gel after the trade deadline, we can make it in. I don't think Boston is a lock to get in. (Closing my eyes...tight.....clinching my fist....tighter) We can make it.

    Trust me.... the American media is NOT pro Raptors. I'd be surprised if Kenny, Charles or Shaq have
