Roll Call – April 4 vs The Knicks

The “6 meaningless wins in a row” Edition Banks – Hoping for a bail-out. Bargnani – I’d still rather have Brandon Roy, but it doesn’t sting as much anymore. We know he can score, awkwardly as it may be; we know he can grab a few rebounds here and there; his defense has been coming… Read more »

Kyrie Irving

Roll Call – Apr 1 vs Magic

The “best game of the year” edition Banks – somebody call a toe truck. Bargnani – pretty much a non-factor in the second half due to foul trouble (and eventually fouling out in the early fourth), he played a hell of a game on Dwight and had him stumbling around as much as I’ve seen… Read more »


Buyout, playing time or bench

Is there anything to be salvaged of this crew? Enough talk about Chris Bosh’s possible exit from Toronto or whether Calderon’s been injured or just crappy. It’s time to look towards the end of the bench and see just exactly what we have there and whether any of it is worth bringing back. The Raptors… Read more »


Roll Call – Mar 27 vs Thunder

The “orange crushed” edition Banks – here is hoping his injury spurs BC to dump his sorry ass. Bargnani – anybody else kind of giggle to themselves everytime they see the look of shock on Andrea’s face when he gets called for a foul. That mouthguard makes him look like some “special” kid trying to… Read more »


Roll Call – Mar 25 vs Bucks

The “twitaholics anonymous” edition Banks – how proud your family must be. “My son just suffered a season ending injury.” “Oh my…what happened” “Bone spur in his toe”. What the hell? Is that even possible? Why not just say he suffered a blister while rolling up the rim?  Bargnani – feed the hungry man, indeed…. Read more »


Roll Call – March 22 vs Clippers

The “what happens if you put two turtles in a cage match” edition Banks – his ego is still cracked, so he didn’t play. Got paid, though.  Bargnani – his heel has a booboo. I woke up today and had a crick in my neck. Funny thing is, I’m still doing my job. Get out… Read more »


Roll Call – Mar 20 vs Bobcats

The “so THAT is why my girl is against doing….” edition. Banks – good: his salary. bad: we pay it. Bargnani – good: he was a former #1 pick. bad: he was ours. Bosh – good: his second quarter tonight. bad: the other 3. Calderon – good: he wanted to stay in Toronto and become… Read more »


Roll Call – Mar 16 vs Bobcats

The “now THAT is how a hungry team plays” edition… Banks – stayed in Toronto. A city awaits word on his injury with a nervousness not often felt amongst the legions of fans. Bargnani – his game tonight reminded me of going to an Italian buffet and all they served was bruschetta and sticky spaghetti…. Read more »


Roll Call – Mar 15 vs Pacers

The “more whistles than Caribana” edition… Banks – Of space a waste. Never be a major part of an NBA team, he will. Hmmmmmm. Bargnani – Suffering from the flu, but showing, still ball can he, when he is sick. Finally showing flashes of what a number one pick, been doing a year ago, should… Read more »


Roll Call – Mar 13 vs Pistons

The “maybe they should have watched Syracuse” edition Banks – I wish for two things every morning when I awake: to roll over and see Eva Mendez lying next to me (sober, awake, and willingly (and I mean her)) and to have a full day without having to see Marcus Banks play basketball. Bargnani –… Read more »
