    Why do we pay attention to ESPN? It's not even on tv in this country..
    TSN is owned by the same entity(well, 20%).

    This is why TSN is the only sports channel to get the ESPN covered stuff because they're technically ESPN-North.

        and is that why TSN shows 24.8 seconds of raptor highlights

            Are you blaming Alexander Graham Bell Apollo?

              Not sure where to ask this question but this thread seemed to be as good as any. Does anyone have access to ESPN Insider and could you be so kind as to post their list of top 10 SG's IFFF our boy DeMar made the cut?

                DeRozan wasn't in the top 10 or in the "next five". But him, Joe Johnson, and Klay Thompson were mentioned in the "also notable" category".

                Also notable: Klay Thompson, Joe Johnson, DeMar DeRozan

                These are the torch-and-pitchfork guys, the ones many are going to howl about because of their omission above. Thompson is the one guy that, subjectively speaking, I think will take a big leap in value. So far though, Thompson's stat line does not elevate him beyond the status of role player. He's great in his role, with a high volume of extremely efficient 3-point shooting, and there's not a team in the league that wouldn't want to have him. However, he hasn't done much inside the arc during his career and needs to become more a threat off the dribble. Not only will that get him to the line more often, but he'll become a better playmaker as well. That will enhance his value. Of course, team context matters, too, and with Stephen Curry and Andre Iguodala around, the Warriors might not need Thompson to do more than he does.

                We've long warned about the perils of age 32 when it comes to shooting guards, and Johnson hit that age just after the Finals ended. His value dropped like a stone last season, with a winning percentage that dipped from .564 to .443. With so many alpha-personality players to share possessions with in Brooklyn's new lineup, Johnson has entered the role-player phase of his decline. As for DeRozan, I've written it many times: Until he proves otherwise, he's just an empty scoring average.

                    since we were talking about how Espn/NBA.com/TNT really doesnt give a shit about toronto..

                    would the toronto raptors be one of the top ten most productive teams....
