    Doug had it partially right except for one thing. You don't need to be tough to stand up to people for wrong doings, you just need to have respect for yourself and what you represent.

    Uh yea. They're his teammates so they're supposed to stand up for him either way. The guy was on the floor in pain. WTF did you expect him to do? Just jump up and get into Pierce's face? The franchise player gets decked, and everyone else on the floor stood around like a bunch of pansies. Bargnani, Turk, Rasho and Johnson are all more than capable of getting into someones face.

    Lovin the Bosh resentment here though. I guess everyone is slowly setting him up as the new public enemy #1 so it doesn't hurt as much when another star player leaves this team.
    The "team" isn't acting as a team.

    Something will have to change.

    But this type of issue should fall on the coach! If no one is getting upset at a rough play, it's a sign they don't care. That's the coach's fault for creating/permitting/not noticing that kind of atmosphere.

    Triano's after the fact comments only serve to prove something is very wrong in the locker room.

    Bosh has to be the first one to come to his defense. He's a 6'10" PF who bulked up over the summer, is he expecting Bargnani or Turkoglu or Jack to stand up for him? C'mon man, nobody will defend you if even you don't think you got wronged.

    I miss old school basketball, they knew what to do:



    If the Raptors would have reacted like the rest of the Knicks did, maybe the refs would have called a technical on Pierce but since they done nothing then the refs reaction was also nothing but play on.

    Maybe next time the mop girl can show the raptors up and roll her sleaves and get in her fighting stance.

    Leader of the Raptor Pack

    I have to agree with brothersteve. I'm upset that no one came to Bosh's defence other than the coaches, but I'm also skeptical that Bosh would have come to anyone else's defence in the same situation.

    I'm starting to wonder if the Raptors leader is lacking the respect from his teammates.

    Troubling signs to say the least.

    If Bosh doesn't start acting like a leader instead of someone looking for a $130 million contract, no one will ever stand up for him.

    Disgusted, Embarrassed & Shocked No One Stood Up For Bosh

    I usually don't agree with Doug, but he couldn't be more right this morning. Let the team and the players have it. Its different when its people like you or I are expressing the same sentiments on a message board or blog, but when one of the more focal Raptors beat writers start talking about it I hope someone from the team is taking it in.
