    Default DON'T Get me wrong i like the energy of this team BUT....

    Is it me already two games in and i miss the assists Calderon provided...I mean 2 assists tonight between our 2 point guards is ridiculous...When the bottom fell out in the 4th we became a jump shooting team that couldnt hit a jump shot and Lowry kept turning over the ball. I'm Begging in what ever trade we do to shed AB from the team can we please get a pass first point guard to at least offset the bad decision making PG's we currently have...We really could have won this game and at one point in the Heat broadcast they even mentioned the fact that we are getting no assists production for the PG's..

    Totally agree. Lowry still has a lot to do to prove that he's the long-term solution at PG, and in the meantime, any backup has to be a solid pass-first guy for sure.

    While I agree that a backup PG needs to be addressed....GIVE IT MORE THAN TWO GAMES BEFORE YOU LOSE YOUR SHIT, PEOPLE. DO NOT count on the playoffs this year. If it happens great. The style of play has changed. Let's give the people that have been playing basketball since the age of 10 more than 96 minutes to figure some shit out

    I am not a knee jerk reaction type of guy, I like Lowry, but have my doubts about his leading a team. He simply has not shown that he is able to make anything happen for his teammates and that is not just the past two games. I understand the business part of the game and think that losing Jose and Davis for Gay was a good deal for us overall, but it is tough to watch the team struggle to move the ball. When Derozan and Johnson are you best passers that doesn't fill me with confidence.

    But you have to consider that Bledsoe is a helluva on the ball defender, and the Heat, when they feel like it (which they did today) are fantastic at putting pressure on the ball. I'm not surprised that Lowry's assists were low these past two games.

    One thing that does look a little scary, though: without Jose feeding him on pick and rolls, Amir looks completely useless on offence. Hopefully this is partly due to his flu.

    Two games? Lowry has been on our team all year. I count all the games I've seen from him when I say that he still needs to do a lot to convince me he's the PG of the future, rather than just a good value stopgap.

    The Spin Doctor traded Jose twice (OK, once + one trade that was vetoed by MJ) so I doubt Jose will be eager to resign with the Raptors.

    Nay. I don't want to ever have to deal with another controversy with a guy who clearly wants to be a starter, but just not talented enough. This team just doesn't have the talent to fool around with players at positions. Needs to be a clear starter, and as much as internal competition is good, there can't be any questions. This team lacks consistency.

    Time to move on.

    +1 Please everyone calderon was good but its not like he made the team that much better we gave up Calderon for a guy that can make his own shot, and provide less attention at DeRozan to play his game a lot more free flowing.

    GET OFF THE CALDERON **** its the past high character guy great playmaker but come on its a good thing that we are finally making a new Raptors team. Our asisst #s are down becaue Lucas is playing main guard off the bench and those playing alongside him arent looking to set players up.

    But if you could get jose back this offseason at 5-6 mill a year and trade Kyle for something of value, would you not do it?

    You weren't asking me, but I'll answer the question anyway, No. It's time to move on.
