I'm calling it;
3-13 cause they're @Memphis next game.
TRADE IDEA TO IMPROVE RAPTORS:
w/ Chicago Bulls
Chicago trades Carlos Boozer for Calderon and Amir Johnson/ Linas Kleiza
Chicago is committed to Taj Gibson as their future PF and have been looking to amnesty Boozer probably this summer. Calderon is an expiring contract and can fill in as PG until Derrick Rose is back. Amir, especially, would be an adequate back-up PF behind Gibson.
Toronto has many weakness, but rebounding and post play is a big one. Boozer is a strong defensive rebounder and can score in the paint. He can play with outside-shooting Bargnani, just as he did Okur. A team of Bargnani, Lowry, Boozer, and Valanciunas could be competitive for a low playoff seed in the east. Toronto also has a hard time signing free agents, so Boozer fills a need, as no other All-Star caliber player will sign with them.
Seems like win-win to me. Agree or disagree?
Now that they've signed Mikael Pietrus, look out NBA!
Buckle Up Jazz
Tank Watch Bottom (or is it Top?) 5:
1. Utah Jazz 4-19 L4
2. Milwaukee Bucks 4-16 L1
3. Denver Nuggets or Orlando Magic (via New York Knicks 5-14 L1)
4. Orlando Magic 6-15 L6
5. Atlanta Hawks or Boston Celtics (via Brooklyn Nets 6-14 W1)
Looking good AKMVP.
...I don't even know why I'm contributing to this thread, but ANY team that takes on Boozer for more than the NBA minimum has made a huge mistake!
two wins in a row without Bags and Lowry - coincidence? I do not think so. Bargs especially should sit on the bench for couple month.
Third win in a row... 25 ast, 6 players in double figures. Thats what injuries to two selfish chuckers do.
AKMVP, great call, dip-****. It's even worse you're still hoping after they won 3 in a row. They still suck.
