    Awesome defender?! Not bloody likely.

    They may mask it but no one is blind. JV still doesn't have the lateral quickness to handle a guard when he gets caught in a PnR or the speed to get out and contest a perimeter shot. It's not like he played next to Patterson and didn't notice those things.

    But hopefully it does make it appear that he's improved to bring his trade value up a bit more as it's clear he's not really a part of our long term picture and we will need to clear up some cap space.
    JV can defend his position. More than I can say for Derozan. Or even Lowry unless he's really dialed in. Hilarious that we're gauging a centre by his ability to have the lateral quickness to guard a guard. But I rarely see the same people concerned with that, express that concern about Demar. A guard.

    While not to this level, I have to say this thread delivered.

    252 pages, the Bulls and Celtics were all talk, and most importantly the Raps win the trade deadline. Well again besides the Ranananawhocares and their circus dealing DMC for buddy.

    The way I see it, there are a few players that need to prove themselves until the end of the season and playoffs.

    Carroll- His defense has to be there and his offence has to be consistent. If it isn't, then he might be gone as a salary dump in the summer.

    Ibaka - Has to bring it in order to prove he is worthy of a good contract and is a good fit. His value decreased last few seasons including his stint in Orlando.

    JV - Inconsistent on both ends of the floor, has to become the JV of the playoffs once again. If Ibaka becomes a great fit and JV struggles, he might be on the move.

    Cojo - the defense has to come back, or Delon Wright will steal his spot and he could be on the move this summer.

    Wright - has to show he can be a capable backup on this team, it might be him or Cojo that move this summer, pending the Lowry re-signing.
    Couple things, first off I think it already is Wright's spot to lose as backup guard for next year, baring a major injury. Not too worried about JV because my theory is that he just can't maintain the focus and effort needed to dominate the interior for 82 games, but will be motivated and flip the switch in the playoffs. Share your concerns for everyone else though.

    Honestly if they find their mojo again, and Cavs have some issue with Love's and JR's health plus maybe Lebron played too much in the season I could see the Raps going to the finals. X factor is Casey IMO, Masai's job is done.

    I don't really know why JV would be mentioned with the Lebron stoppers. He didn't mention Kyle, but Kyle is still the MVP of this team. He was more talking about guys you can put on Lebron who can take turns attempting to guard him. I didn't get the sense that JV is going anywhere from that interview.

    I didn't say he's going anywhere, just noted he wasn't mentioned. Kyle plays PG. I'd expect the C to be last line of D at rim, which I think is important, particularly with LeBron. Just my take. Masai frequently said let's see.

    http://www.tsn.ca/nba/video/ujiri-di...-ibaka~1064451

    Funny part is Masai basically laughs about Bruno around the 4:37 mark...that alone makes it worth watching lol
    Thanks for posting that. I just wanna say, Masai is the fucking best. Excuse my language.

    Of course his job should be on the line. Masai went and got 2 solid defensive players, if the team continues to struggle defensively through the season and into the Playoffs, and loses in the first or second round, bye bye Casey.

    Was Cory for taj the backup deal?
    I like the $ and leadership fits of that deal too. Ross remains on the table.

    Biggest loser today? the Pacers.

    Seems like PG has made up his mind that he'll sign with the LAL in 2018. If you're Bird, why not just ask for the Celtics 1st round pick? and maybe one of Smart or Rozier? Bird was reportedly asking for the Celtics 1st, Smart, Brown and Crowder. That's not gonna happen lol.

    The Pacers will end up losing PG for nothing.
    Larry over thinking things?
