    Really thought Toronto was going to make a push this year. Expected improvements from Derozan, Ed Davis, and Bargnani as well as some instant production from Jonas. So far, nothing. That's who I'm afraid of becoming in a few years. A team that has perennial lottery picks and seems to do nothing with it.

    Its all about the management team. Toronto has been mismanaged for so long it is a culture. Not as bad as Sactown today, but bad enough. I think the one positive legacy of LePrincess is the Dan Gilbert organization. The rebuild will take time, but we will rebuild and we will win again.

    In my opinion the Raptor struggles might help us a lot. I have said it many times, but I think DeRozen is one of the most productive wings in the League and he is a free agent next year. If the Raps dont sign him to an extension, I would like to see us take a run at him. If we are able to trade Andy for a younger athletic big, we will would be ia really good position to take it into overdrive.

    Right now we have the worst team defense in the league. As good as Andy is, he cannot defend alone or even with help from Gee. So its a wasted effort. The young guys are going to have to develop that mentality, and to do that they need to recognize that Andy is not going to bail them out.

    a) he is not a free agent next year

    b) stats disprove your opinion

    I think the loss of Granger has hurt Hibbert a lot more than the loss of Collison. Towards the end of last year, Hill was getting starter's minutes and Collison wasn't that productive at all for the Pacers all year.

    Or maybe its just another example of a guy who goes hard in his contract year and is satisfied now that he got the big contract

    A comment on Lakers v Houston.

    Lakers are playing better, and Dwight and Kobe are carrying the rest of e team, but so far they have only beaten teams under 500. I will not be a believer until the beat a few good teams.. As for Houston, the truth is that Lin just is not that good. Their record is not his fault entirely, but he is a part of the problem. Hardin rocks, but cannot carry this team solo...

    The fact that Colangelo still has a job at this point means he has some fantastic dirt on someone imo. The guy is incompetant beyond words. This is the guy responsible for the Miami situation ever being a possibility by not only giving Bosh the option to leave, but forcing him to leave with his incompeance.

    Let's look at the Colangelo check list.

    He traded expiring contracts (JO) to Miami to give them the cap space to sign the douche three. For the honours of allowing the Heat to sign the three he also decided it would be a good idea to give them a first round pick...

    Before that trade he traded all of his assets for JO...

    Signed Hedo to a terrible contract...

    Drafted Bargs at #1 in admittedly one of the weakest drafts ever.

    I noticed last game Washington moved Crawford to the starting SG and Beal off the bench. What happened there?

    I know Beal hasn't been playing well to start the season.

    Washington is a bad team that made moves to try and win now, but so far they have back fired. They seem to be more concerned about trying to get the 8th seed than they are about allowing their young team to grow. Thank god we are not in their situation imo. They are the definition of tread mill of mediocrity.

    I dont think they made moves to win now. they got rid of the most part of their core and brought in veterans to play with their youngs guys they still have. Washington learned the hard way you gotta have sme experience and maturity in your locker room

    nah washington had just compiled arguably the dumbest group of young guys in the league and simply faced the consequences. veterans wouldn't have changed a thing.
