Rage Against The Machine and Raptors Relevancy

by

Kyrie Irving

It’s no new insight that in professional sports, winning attracts attention. Cereal boxes, tickertape parades, bedroom posters, playground impersonators, hours of televised fawning – all in honour of the big W. Losers can be relevant, but they’re relevant for losing. You may get noticed for setting futility records, but being a spectacular failure won’t make you matter… or make you money.


How much time do Triano/Colangelo have?

by

The Jay Triano and Bryan Colangelo combination are on the verge of a dubious honor in Raptors history. At this point, it’s natural to wonder just how long these two can partner in their quest to return the Raptors to respectability.


The defensive stopper is overrated

Injecting one good-to-great defensive player as a remedy for a poor defensive unit sounds like a bad strategy, and one the Raptors have been guilty of too often.

How Bosh has managed to transform the public’s perception of him from “good player tired of losing” to “greedy attention-seeking diva” is truly a thing of beauty. He has handled the 2010 free-agency period about as poorly as one can. Whereas Dwayne Wade and LeBron James have met with other teams without alienating their existing ones, Chris Bosh has done exactly that.


Big Board: Raptors leaning towards Avery Bradley

Assuming that the ping pong balls on Tuesday night keep everything the same, and that the Raptors pick at #13, look for the Raptors to draft 19 year old Avery Bradley, the 6’3″ Texas guard.


Don’t give up on Marco

by

You know that Seinfeld when George lies about being handicapped to get the job, and when they later find out that he’s not, they can’t fire him because he’s under contract so they lock him out of his office? Something similar could be done for Marco Belinelli. I’m joking, of course, I love Marco.
