Sun-Sentinel So Dwyane, for all the renewed speculation about a Wade-LeBron free-agent pairing in 2010, what should be made of the Bosh-Wade bond under Thomas? "The only thing about that is Henry is a big player in 2010 because he has two of the players that people are talking about and wanting," Wade said…. Read more »
Canadian Press "Picking on position alone is dangerous because you might be passing up a better talent that’s available," Colangelo said. "What you hope to find is a player that satisfies both talent and need." The Raptors GM hasn’t been shy about making moves on draft day, and could do the same this year. "After… Read more »
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 »
The “don’t shed a tear” edition Banks – call the toe truck. Bargnani – meh, no reason to play since you have 4-5 months off. Why stress yourself? Bosh – started off hot, then went as cold as Joan Rivers’ vajayjay. Then the light went off and he put his middle finger up for all… Read more »
Even a half-french-half-nelson can’t stop CB4. It’s been a minute, but I’m back. Sadly, not a whole lot changed while I was gone.. The fortunes of this team have remained the same. Regardless of how we got here, the fact of the matter is that this team is worse off right now then when BryCo… Read more »
The “payback’s a bitch” edition Banks – dead weight. Bargnani – faker. Bosh – absolute bonehead play late fourth in not hustling to the ball and letting Dixon blow by you, steal it, and score what could have been the dagger. To make up for it, he did what franchise players do: win the game…. Read more »
The “Violet Palmer needs to be demoted” edition Banks – if he becomes an alcoholic, can he come off our cap? Bargnani – reminded us of the pre-Christmas Bargs. A quiet 17, but 4 fouls and just 2 boards. Bad time to pull a Keon when cult hero Armstrong dubbed you as the top Raptor… Read more »
The “Boogie Williams” edition Banks – the only pressing question: how is the toe? Bargnani – wonder if his heel bone is connected to his shooting bone? Brutal shooting night can be partially chalked up to the Wizards putting quick defenders on him, but he should have been able to shoot over them with ease…. Read more »
The “worst game of the year” edition Banks – him chilling in Vegas rather than be seen with this team is telling. Bargnani – thanking his lucky stars that he was selected to suffer the rotating fake injury tonight. Bosh – Triano can’t even do this right: Bosh was one board away from another double… Read more »
The “who the hell are those guys” edition Banks – partying in Vegas while sitting out with a bad toe. Why sit with your team on the bench when you can be downing drinks at the Bellagio? (see story in the weblinks). HO would be proud. Bargnani – early foul trouble accompanied by a technical… Read more »
I hope that there is a coach here that can explain this:
Mid way through the first quarter and well into the second when you’re down double digits and you bring in Vaz and company and start the 3 guard set the team passed the ball a million times and guess what happened? Well you seen the game I don’t have to explain.
Then Casey starts the second half with his iso Lou game , now remember during the run in the first half Lou had about 4 assists, he was playing a hell of a game.
You could see as soon as Vaz came in (second half) what Casey’s plan was, give the ball to Lou (you know that little bounce pass is the sign..lol..) and then everybody put their finger up their respective rears because the play is the iso Casey extravaganza AND believe me I don’t blame Lou for this!
This all Casey’s master plan that busted right on his face in about 5 minutes, the team went from 58-53 deficit to a 71-56 one. Lou bricked four and a turn over, AGAIN I don’t blame Lou entirely for this, the guys were playing so well for a quarter and a half, Lou was driving and give it up and the other guys were making the shots they really looked like a good unit.
Then Casey changes the PROGRAM! I just don’t get this guys !
Oh well, something got to change here this is a little more then a slump. Hey Casey maybe that passing thing is ok, it may work! Actually it worked for the end of the first and the full second. I bet there were more passes on that second quarter than the whole game.
