Morning Coffee – June 18

By

Toronto Sun The 19-year-old forward from the USC Trojans, a projected top-10 pick, is one of several top prospects that have opted to go it alone during pre-draft auditions. "I felt like coaches get the chance to see everything I’ve improved on without paying attention to other players, their whole focus is on me," DeRozan… Read more »

Morning Coffee – June 10

By

Toronto Sun “We’re changing the dynamic of our ball club,” Colangelo said. “Reggie brings a fear factor. He’s a rugged player and a character player.” Colangelo recalled his recent encounter with Chris Bosh when the GM told the franchise player of the need to acquire a player such as Evans. Colangelo, meanwhile, was not taken… Read more »

Roll Call – Season Wrap up

By

The “I told you so” edition Adams – possessed the characteristics you look for as a general manager of an NBA franchise: a fire hydrant with a headband. Hassan brought as much value to our team as would rap lessons from 50 Cent given to Jake Voskuhl. Banks – at least Hassan isn’t costing us… Read more »

Roll Call – April 4 vs The Knicks

By

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 »

Roll Call – Apr 1 vs Magic

By

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

By

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

By

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

By

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 – Feb 27 vs Shaq…err…Suns

By

The “ooohh….paint. I thought you said we should try to defend the saint more” edition Banks – if he goes to bed tonight thinking about that kid in public school that teased him saying he wouldn’t amount to anything, Marcus should be rest assured that the bully wasn’t talking about him as a person…just his… Read more »
