Morning Coffee – June 12

Indignant Sports Reggie Evans is clearly the best rebounder and most physical player of the bunch, even if he isn’t a skilled offensive threat.  He’s easily the back-up power forward.  On a running team, you might get away with him at center for short runs.  But you have to ask yourself: was Evans acquired to ...

Morning Coffee – May 31

  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

Morning Coffee – May 28

Toronto Sun It may wind up the Raptors only get to see a guy they are potentially interested in at a group event like Chicago this week, Minneapolis early next week or New Jersey a week before the draft. Even the Chicago event this week may turn out to be much ado about nothing. While ... Read more

Crosshair: Chris Bosh

20/10…you keep those kinds of players. It was a challenging year to say the least, and no one on this team had a harder time with it then Chris. After a summer where he won Olympic gold as a KEY member of the US National team (KEY as in he was crucial to their winning, ... Read more

Roll Call – Season Wrap up

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 – Apr 15 vs Bulls

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

50 = Bad

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

Roll Call – Apr 13 vs Wizards

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

Roll Call – Apr 12 vs Sixers

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

Roll Call – Apr 10 vs Wizards

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

Roll Call – Apr 8 vs Pacers

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

Roll Call – Apr 7 vs Hawks

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
