    If anything at best I'm hoping this hype will light a fire under Terrence Ross to get him going.
    You could light an actual fire under TRoss and he wouldn't get going.

    But hey, it is a contract year, so you never know...

      Terrence Ross is going to be a very serviceable SG off the bench who plays adequate defense and has a good 3 pt shot. I don't know why people are still hanging on to so much angst about him/want to trade him for doughnuts if he's not going to be starting.

      Although I do like doughnuts.

            Stormin Norman sounds epic. I just hope he keeps this going.

              There is already a Stormin' Norman. This guy. Though, he's dead. But still.

                    This goes along with my reasoning that the Raptors (and MLSE in general) are famous for labeling players something they're not. This leads to players getting over paid, fans getting pissed off and coming up with ridiculous trade proposals.

                    Masai has taken a couple steps away from this now and I think that's going to continue to be his approach with Powell and our other young players. Where BC would label these players a God-send, Masai just says "ya they're rookies, they do some stuff we liked, hopefully they work out and we'll see"

                    That's my approach with Powell. He does some stuff that I like and his talent in many respects is sticking out amongst his peers. That's pretty good for a second rounder and appears to be worth a shot at the higher level.

                    Plus we have the D-League so if time dries up and he's not getting on the floor he can go to the d-league to continue his development and growth. I think all our prospects will cycle through both teams, so it's nice to see one more player added to that mix.

                    • the fact that we have D-League changes everything to be honest. Probably the best thing Masai did in his tenure.

                        I'm most excited that we found such great value in the second round. Finding second round talent that can contribute in the NBA is mandatory for teams to be successful. look at what the Spurs do in the second round. When you're a winning team you don't get high draft picks so you have to find contributors in the later rounds and have a system to develop them in. That's how the Spurs stay so successful. Outside of Duncan all of the Spurs "stars" were found in the later rounds of the draft. Pretty remarkable.
                        Finding talent is part of the issue tho. The reason the Spurs are continually so good at getting help from late picks is because they are so good at developing them. Yes the Raps did well with finding Powell but im still not sold on how well he will be developed by the coaching staff.

                          It's going to take time to create a player development system, but they are well on their way to doing it. Just look at what has happened from that standpoint in the past 2 years.

                            You should probably thank this guy more:
