  • Raptors Acquire "The Rock"

    No, Dwayne Johnson hasn't gone Master P on us to pursue an NBA career. The Raptors have literally purchased a giant rock to help inspire the team and bring them together as a unit. I guess this is better than Triano's "protect the house" garbage from last year, and from the comments of the players, they seem to be buying into it. Whatever it takes.

      I think this is awesome - a little cheesy - but still awesome. The message is clear: keep banging away. And what else can you ask of a young team?

      The older vets don't need this kind of stuff. For many of them that is why they have lasted so long in the league. The key here is the young guys. The rock gives them a bond, something to remember when times get tough - and they will. That rock is not going to be split this year. For the core moving forward it is something to remember for the next couple of years and if that rock is not split in possibly 2 and maybe 3 years, few in the organization from BC to Casey on down to the young players currently on the roster will likely no longer be here.

          Props for the thread title. One thing I'm noticing about Casey he is a Tony Robbins in the waiting. First the whole "Not rebuilding but building" thing then this. I get what he's trying to do -- create culture where it's sorely lacking. But, now we're going to be the dinosaur team with a rock in the dressing room. Is that a good thing?

            Damn... I didn't think of that.

            Still liking the symbolism though.

                Entourage: Harvey - "E (BC) was right, there's genius in this (Bargnani)"

                  If history is any indication then if there's a loose rock Bargnani is probably the least likely person to be on the scene first.

                  Interesting symbolism. Casey is creative, I'll give him that.

                    I sure hope he has more substance behind him than Tony Robbins does.

                      What about a giant cup of Tim's or the Stanley Cup made of tin foil?

                        I'm all for motivating & team unity & all that, but since when was 'pounding the rock' a good thing? I've always equated it with a PG who stood at the top of the key, dribbling away, waiting for something to happen. Is it just me?

                            I'm all for good inspirational ideas. But I'd be more impressed if Casey actually came up with this idea, instead of stealing it from San Antonio and Miami...
