thats why i said we dont need to trade al.
it;s been said a couple of times by me.
get rid of al get a 4th and 5th big man for 6-10 minutes a game.
and split the rest between millsap favors and kanter(30 each)
The Raptors have some talent -- I think Derozan is a good player. Bargnani is as good as Okur. Lowry is pretty good. They just don't play well as a team.
IMHO opinion the blowout started when tinsley came in.
tinsley is better with the 2nd unit on offense.
and kanter(and favors if healthy) ussually cover up tinsleys lack of defense
Raptors took a massive step back since last year when they traded their best defender James Johnson to Sacramento. Last year at least their defense was respectable now they just look pathetic. Lowry is playing hero ball and chucking one one one, Bargnani is just pure garbage, Derozan is Kobe wanabe and Casey seems to have no clue how to correct it. Their announcers today ( I am in Canada so watched game on local TV) where just shocked how pathetic they looked and could not do anything vs Jazz today who missed big AL and Favors.
"I was originally a Jazz fan but since I am getting pooped on so hard on the Jazz forums it is really starting to make me wish Kanter develops into the Kevin McHale potential he has and make the Jazz look bad. Nothing would make me happier at this point." Unidentified Kanter homer on reddit.
still having a boner and jizzing over this jazz win
Not a fun time to be a Raptor fan, especially with their pick in limbo as it goes to OKC unless 3 or better.
Burks is wearing a Where's Waldo outfit in the locker room!
He had a good game, good to see him look like he was hungry, however he didn't do a good job closing out on the three ball. Great game though.
I was thinking jazz win regardless. LA is playing like doodoo right now, and we've already beaten them with Al.
he's helped us win more then a couple games with his shooting. Honestly I don't understand the Foye hate. He may take an ill advised shot from time to time, but he seems to make half of them. He's a shooter what do you expect, and he's no CJ!
differnce is jazz as a team with deron had ASSISTsit's not really due to Al, but the mind set of the team, they rely on him too much almost to a fault. With Al out they were forced to play another way. I remember a similar game vs. The 76ers during the Deron Boozer days. Deron didn't play, and the ball movement was amazing and if I recall we beat the 76ers handedly.r
with al it is no assist.
dumping the ball down dribble/holde the ball for 10 seconds aint what deron and boozer did
plus its a boring brand of basketball to watch.this way tonight was stand up and scream ball.
which on itselfs gives us a greater home court advantge
equaling more home wins.
which in turns ups the confidence which equals more road wins.
no matter how you do the math
