Re: First 8 - Setting the Pace

I watched this whole game. I saw two teams who weren't exactly playing at their best but weren't playing poorly either. Their truly is a very large talent disparity between these two rosters. That's what I attribute the final spread to more than anything else.

Interesting prospect. Certainly far from a stiff. Looks like he cares who wins and loses. Pretty good form on his free throws. Perkins boxed him out and kept him off the glass with ease. I like his length, but he doesn't fully know how to use it to his advantage yet. That offensive goaltending was an error of commission more than omission. His turnovers weren't really the ugly variety. I like the way he runs the floor and confidently throws his hand up when he gets to the low block.

On a different note, Calderon plays more selfishly off the bench than he does as a starter both in the NBA and internationally. Seems like he feels the need to make plays for himself a little more often in that role. On top of that, Lowry isn't a great post-feed guy. I would like to see what Val does with more touches.

Re: First 8 - Setting the Pace

I think I've mentioned that about Lowry earlier in this thread. He wants to feed the post, he just chooses awkward moments to do so. His Pick and Roll work isn't of the highest quality, something he will really need to improve to get the best out of Val.

Re: First 8 - Setting the Pace

Wowwww, I hear ya. But let's not go there just yet ...
We have second unit players that just aren't great scorers ... despite what their stat figures say.
Good thing is we've got a lot of room to grow. Just gotta grow fast!!

Re: First 8 - Setting the Pace

Meh my expectations for this team honestly aren't high - they just aren't that talented. I enjoyed watching last season though because they played hard and that made it easy to get behind them. If they can improve from last season's win% I'd be pretty happy as a fan but I'm coming into this expecting some pretty disappointing nights haha

Re: First 8 - Setting the Pace

Why is consistent play such a mystery to this team?? Unbelievable ...
Anyways what's all this chatter about VC wanting to come back and finish his career here in TO? Imagine the reaction to that!! Probably stunned silence we wouldn't know to to string the noose on first, Colangelo or VC .. or maybe let them share it and hang them both!!

At least the Nets looked at lot worse than the Raps tonight ...

We don't own our pick (even if it is protected, we're not bad enough to get a Top 3).

The start to this campaign has been really rough in terms of strength of schedule, so I'm not hitting the panic button just yet.

The losses might also force BC into a move, which we've all been clamouring for since we have Jose, Bargnani, Fields, Kleiza etc all getting paid to do very little.

Is it me or do the refs seem out to get us this year? The officiating through the first five games has been against us. That couple with Casey and his boggling rotations are a big reason for a couple of these losses.

DeMar played a really impressive game last night, as did Bargnani. We really need the latter to keep up his play when Lowry returns if we want to compete at a high level.

Fields does not deserve to start. Another ****ing horrible game from him. I'm open to giving Ross a chance to start, he can't do any worse than Landry.

Ha. Yeah I heard all of this, VC appeared on the FAN590 yesterday and said a couple things about Toronto being where it all began so he wouldn't be against the idea. Half of the Raptors fanbase seems to have forgiven him, the other half is after his neck.

All I know, is right now, I'd trade Fields for him. (even if I do think I fall into the 'after his neck' camp too, ha).

Casey said he's considering shaking up the starting lineup because of the bad starts. They've been going on since pre-season
