    Funny you said that because that is actually what you'r'e doing.

    "Are Buycks or Augustine as skilled as Terrance? No. But they do their job a hell of a lot better"

    Better? Based on? Augustine is a good PG and i think he'll be the back up BUT he has never played SG in his career. He's 6'0 for god's sake. And Buycks? LOL. You really think he can play the 2 better than Ross?
    i think he was talking about their respective roles, not ross's role specifically.

    Stop trolling me. Stop insinuating things that I am not saying. And watch basketball properly. Don't just look at the person with the ball. Look at all five players. Are Buycks or Augustine as skilled as Terrance? No. But they do their job a hell of a lot better.
    That is the crux of everything I have said Talent > Skill.

    Skills may get a player to the league but talent is what pays the bills.

    Who would you rather have on your team Gerald Green or Kahwi Leanord?
    The kid who can jump out the building or a rock who makes his team better?
    Do you want to win or look pretty?

    This isn't even a debate. Stop being facetious.

    I should ask you that, what are you talking about? where did i mention the word hate? i dont think anyone on this board hates Ross(well maybe a few). But what i said was, everybody on this board was 'down' with Ross. And i understand why.

    Anyway, the REAL problem with Ross is inconsistency. We know he can be a spark plug off the bench when he's on. We saw it 1st game of the preseason against the Celtics. We saw it again the other night against the Celtics as well.

    So far, 5 preseason games. 2 great games and 3 so-so games. That's the problem right there.

    Btw, did u just say that DJ and a rookie in Buycks who i dont think is good enough to be a 3rd string PG should get more mins at the 2 than Ross? come on, give me a break!

    What are you talking about? No one hates Ross -- we all hope he improves. But the man isn't good enough. He doesn't put it together. If the goal is to lose then maybe he's the 6th man. Fields can defend players 1-4, probably the smartest bball player on this team. Psycho T puts in work. Both Buycks and Augustine can play spot minutes at the 2 and don't take plays off. Novak scores 3s well above league wide percentages...What does Ross do better than any of those important roles? Dunk?

    Enough Already! Look at the quality of him playing basketball and stop judging players on how they look jumping up and down. When Ross earns the 6th spot I'll be the first to acknowledge it, but he hasn't. All your proclamations that he has are silly. The man needs to put in work, stop taking plays off, be more active on defense and seek the ball rather than wait for it. He needs to take a more active responsibility of the second team vocally and physically. He's no longer a rook, it will be his choice whether he grows or is traded.

    I know. I was just poking fun at how much of a no-name he is, and why anyone would care he was offended by something the Raptors did

    watching Wednesdays game again and it looks like Rudy is getting his speed again.
    First time I've seen the starters deploy Casey's defence and I like it.

    There seems to be many definitions of hate that get thrown around interchangeably:

    1. Dislike his game, indifference about him as a person
    2. Dislike his game, and dislike his persona off the court
    3. Dislike his game, and would punch him in the face and steal his wallet if met in real life

    I suspect, most fall into sub-group #1 when accused of "hating" a player.
    I agree, but I think it goes even further:

    4. Dislike his game and/or his performance/salary ratio, like him as a person


    I don't get the notion that just because you're a fan of a TEAM, that you magically become a 'hater' for pointing out the flaws or deficiencies or areas that need improvement of a particular PLAYER on the roster.

    who 'hates' Ross? You can think he might not become the player you want him to be, but to hate him? Has he been lazy? apathetic? faking injuries? Demanding the ball?
    Not saying I hate him, or anyone on this board hates him.. but it would be inaccurate to say NOBODY hates him. People will always have their reasons, however illogical they may be.
