It's pretty funny that Tucker is finally providing us what $60 million worth of Carroll was supposed to.
Now if Carroll could ever get back to his pre-injury form next year, that's a deadly...
I think Casey is a good coach, but my gut tells me a more accomplished coach could get more a bit more out of this team. Someone who demands discipline not just on the defensive end, but both ends...
It's hard to measure an individual's performance using team win totals.
Also, we should probably come to a consensus definition of "best" for this conversation to go further. My interpretation...
Like when you wanted to give up a 1st round pick for Anthony Bennett's carcass? ;)
"Hater" is thrown around so often, that it's lost all meaning.
Casey sucks and deserves to die! - Hater
Casey has some strengths but also some weaknesses - Hater
Casey will probably stick around...
And not to be lost on all this....Vince was doing things the world had never seen before (and haven't seen since).
I'm saying Vince at best was #5, and you're saying he was at best #7. Since we're comparing to DeRozan, is there really a difference between 5 and 7? The point is DeRozan's got a few steps to go...
In 2000-01, I think you could make a legit case for Iverson, Kobe, Shaq, Duncan, Carter. EDIT: He was 2nd team All-NBA that year. Led the league in All-Star voting.
He was better than TMac,...
Vince, at his Raptor peak, was easily a top 5 player in the league. He got better as the stage got bigger.
DeRozan, is probably in the top 15(ish) range.
Ibaka's the obvious answer. But I can't help but wonder how much of the defensive turnaround is because of Tucker's contagious tenacity. His value goes far beyond the stat sheet. Especially...
Just pointing out that over the last 3 years, the Raptors have just 7 wins in 18 first round games (as the higher seed).
Now, I'm starting to worry that Cleveland drops to the 2nd seed, which means we're fine right where we are (as the 4th seed).
I take it all back, Shaq. You da man. :cool:
I actually expect the 1st round to be a struggle regardless of Lowry's status. It's not like we were a well-oiled machine before his injury. And I'm not sure if 3-5 games (best case scenario) will...
Technically, this is true. But I'm not sure many coaches would treat game #5 with the same level of urgency as game #75.
The first quarter of the season is usually reserved for experimenting with...
A big factor is timing too. Not giving JV "learning minutes" early in the season, seems pointless.
But we're in the stretch run of the season now, and paying close attention to seeding every...
Hmmm, what part of Shaq's life would he be losing control over? Illegitimate child, perhaps? Irreconcilable differences between LaVar Ball? A 6%...
I understand the reasoning....I'm just not a fan of the execution. We definitely need a scoring punch while DeRozan sits. But I think we can create better looks than fading corner 3s.
RE: the bolded, seems like Norm is being molded into that role....almost to a fault. He's been chucking a bit too much lately, almost like he was given one of Casey's infamous role cards that says...
I don't care who we face in the 1st round. I'm more concerned about avoiding the 4th or 5th seed.
You gotta love sports!
