  • Report Cards

    B

    Ed Davis

    GP 61 l PPG 7.3 l RPG 7.0 l FG% 58.2 Some recent 13th picks from the NBA Draft: Julian Wright, Sean May, Sebastian Telfair, Marcus Banks, Marcus Haislip, Courtney Alexander. Davis might need to add some bulk and some touch, but the Raptors will take his rebounding knack and solid help defence with that pick over and over again.

    Part of the future? Definitely. Cagey defensive players who are efficient offensively that are still on their rookie contracts are solid gold.
    B
    DeMar DeRozan

    GP 78 l PPG 17.1 l RPG 3.9 l FG% 47.2 DeRozan got stronger as the season carried on. In 22 games since the all-star break, he has averaged 19.9 points per game on nearly 48% shooting. He is also the only Raptor to play in every game this season. He still needs to improve his defence, handling and three-point shot.

    Part of the future? Definitely. He should be the Raptors' starting shooting guard as long as he wants to be here.
    C

    Andrea Bargnani

    GP 66 l PPG 21.4 l RPG 5.2 l FG% 44.8 His scoring average went up, mostly because he took more field goals and free throws this year. His rebounding remained abysmal, with his help defence not far behind. Five years into his career, it is tough to argue he can be anything more than that.

    Part of the future? Probably. He is still the best offensive piece the Raptors have. If Colangelo moves him, they are going to need more compensation than he probably can bring back.
    D+

    Sonny Weems

    GP 58 l PPG 9.4 l RPG 2.6 l FG% 44.4 At the end of last year, it seemed as if Weems' ceiling could be as high as his friend DeRozan's.

    Not anymore. A back injury derailed him, but even healthy, Weems seemed a little too shothappy and a little too inefficient at everything else.

    Part of the future? Unlikely, unless they are trying to appease DeRozan. Needed to show more on defence.

    How the hell does Amir get a B- with that stat line? But Bargs and Ajinca both get C's. The author of this article is a moron. Bargs had 5.2 rebs, Amir 6.4. So 1.2 Rebs less, but Bargs gets over double the points.

    So for Bargs, 5.2 rebs is "atrocious", but Amir gets 1.2 more and he is "the horse".

    PS- I think Ed Davis deserves an A, considering it's his first year and he is coming off an injury to preface his NBA career

    Article:

    B-

    Amir Johnson

    GP 72 l PPG 9.6 l RPG 6.4; l FG% 56.8 Johnson was the team's warrior. With back and ankle injuries, he had no business playing 70plus games, and that showed up in his post-all-star averages of 7.8 points and 4.8 rebounds per game. He brought down his atrocious foul rate, and most importantly, he showed up.

    Part of the future? Probably. He has four years left on his contract, but Davis's presence makes you wonder if there is not too much duplication at power forward.

      Amir is grabbing those 1.2 more rebounds in 10 less minutes of work every night.
      If he were playing the minutes that Bargs was all season, he'd be grabbing 8+ easily.

        Faulty argument- he is playin less because he fouls so much.

          yet he's still more effective. i'm sure he'll lower his fouls per game in the future, as he gets more time to figure it all out.

            well, they tried to give him more time...but then he fouled...so had to be benched..so Ed D gets play, 1st year rook, and fould less and puts up consistent double doubles

              Amir Johnson deserves his grade. He played really well on both sides of the court. I'd much rather have a guy playing good defense and getting into foul trouble at times than a guy playing horrible passive defense.

                Not faulty.

                My argument doesn't have anything to do fouls. My argument is solely based on Rebounding. But we can take it further if you like.

                In 24 mins a night, Amir grabs more Rebounds, more Blocks, and more Steals, than Bargs does in 35 mins a game.
                Not to mention he only averages ONE more foul than Andrea does.

                Bargnani is SOLID on offense, but thats literally only HALF of the game. He doesn't show up enough on the OTHER half, to prove he's an ELITE All-Around player.

                If these Report Cards were based on Offense only, Bargnani would be given a B or an A. But they are not.

                  And 9 pts. Chris Bosh was better. We should trade Amir for Bosh

                    9.6 points while shooting around 57% from the field. Remind me what's wrong with that? If Bargnani was that efficient given his amount of shots he would be a +25PPG scorer.

                      Should be higher for the $$$ he's paid.

                        Again, offense is only HALF of the game.
                        You seem to think it is the ONLY half of the game that counts.

                        Faulty Argument.
                        Bargs should be averaging more Rebounds, Steals, Blocks and Assists for the $$$ he's paid.

                          Why? He plays within the confines of his game and the offense. If you don't like his shot volume you should be blaming Jay Triano. Amir has nothing to do with that. He's making the most out of his opportunities.

                          Meanwhile he's could outplay Bargnani on defense with one arm tied behind his back.

                            True. But we would lose by about 12 points each game.

                              Is this turning into ANOTHER "Multipaul bashing Amir" thread?
