Calderon to the Lakers for Morrison (expiring), Farmar and a first rounder.(polls) This week on The Doctor Is In, I tip my hand as to why Bosh is NOT going to be traded this season. In “Hot or Not” we look at the Eastern Conference playoff race and Marcus Banks. In the internet’s most popular…

Bosh to GSW for Biedrins, Randolph and Curry?(trends) This week on The Doctor is In, someone has spiked the holiday punch bowl because I drank “the Colangelo Kool-Aid” when examining the first 30 games and the Raptors starting five! In “hot or not” the front office and Colangelo get some love, and in the internet’s…

Chris Bosh to OKC for Jeff Green, OKC’s 2010 1st, PHX’s 2010 1st and Etan Thomas (expiring)(polls) Before we start: Don’t. Forget. Other. Stuff. This week on The Doctor Is In, we look one last time at the Bosh vs. Bargnani debate in the hopes of bringing about a lasting peace in the Republic and…

Podcast: Weekly Review/Preview

A quick one today. Another roller-coaster week, two disappointing losses sandwiched between an expected and an unexpected win. With injuries to Bargnani and Calderon, there was a chance for some reserves to make their mark and Jarrett Jack made the most of the opportunity. Sonny Weems had a nice run against Houston which many of…

Podcast: Weekly Review/Preview

I’m here to tell you that the emotional tides you felt last week are perfectly normal. We were all supposed to be absolutely pissed off about the way we played against Washington and Atlanta, and we’re supposed to be happy by the way we won in Washington and Chicago. On Thursday morning there were calls…

Bosh for Boozer and 2010 1st rounder (NY’s unprotected pick)(polls) I asked RR for the day off and they said no. Checking in from my bed for the H1N1 edition of The Doctor Is In, we FREAK out! In hot or not, we look at Chris Bosh and Jarrett Jack and in the hugely popular…

Podcast: Weekly Review/Preview

That was a forgettable week in every sense. You could see the Boston and Phoenix defeats coming, but the shellacking in Charlotte wasn’t exactly on the horizon when this segment was written last week. The scoring differential for the week was -14 and we gave up 114.25 points per game. Our defensive rating went down…

Bosh for Yao?(surveys) This week in The Doctor Is In we look at the benefits of bringing AI to TO. Both Marco Belinelli and Coach Triano get the 3rd degree in “hot or not” and we wonder what it would take to send Chris Bosh home. You can click the play button below or listen…

Podcast: Weekly Review/Preview

Not a good week for the club, we got clobbered in Denver and then put up little resistance against the Jazz with the defense going from bad to worse. We gave up 108.25 points per game and our league-worst defensive rating went further down a couple notches to 116.4. Thankfully Miami came to town and…

Podcast: The Doctor Is In

If you want to catch-up on the game tonight, check the uber pre-game thread. This week in The Doctor Is In, I look at the *new* defensive schemes of the Triano regime and their effectiveness 10 games into the season. Newcomer Hedo Turkoglu and returning Raptor Jose Calderon have their games deconstructed in “hot or…
