    I cringe every time I see a player land on 1 leg (whether before or after a whistle). Get both feet down, ya dummies!

      I've noticed this for a while. When play stops the Raptors (mostly Amir) always try to prevent an opponents shot from getting to the hoop. Can anyone explain this to me? Is it to prevent them from gaining confidence from seeing there shot go in? Do other teams do it?
      It started with KG as far as I am aware. But ever since Dwayne Casey came in, Ed Davis began doing it on our team (I think because of DC), then Amir joined in, and now most of the raptors attempt it including Quincy Acy who Ive seen do it multiple times.

      I love the attitude it radiates.

        So true. Ed was the king of this for the raptors.

        I just wish the the Tony Allen video was mandatory watching in training camp for why not to jump after the whistle

        I've heard this argument before as well as the one arguing that KG's knees would be in better shape if he didn't jump for hundreds of shots after the whistle. Personally, I think it's ridiculous. Injuries are going to happen. They're athletes. Should they not practice? Play summer ball? Be pushed around in wheelchairs all day to 'save' their bodies? Maybe teams should ban jumping off the bench to celebrate a teammates dunk. Could be dangerous.
        There's math, and everything else is debatable.

            Amir and Acy will keep it going....maybe even Jonas.

              as far as I remember amir did it first on our team long before ed started doing it.. I know some people have said the opposite but this is just what I remember

                I would love to see Jonas do it. But he seems like a "nice kid". Maybe that is why someone like Butler can strip the ball off him while high fiving

                  he sure wasn't afraid to give a pretty hard foul to Griffin

                    IMO, i think its dumb. Might be thinking extremes here but going up for essentially no bearing on the game might even cause a jammed finger or sprained ankle, leg. I'm even thinking that the ref might get annoyed and actually give the offensive player continuation and charge the opponent goal tending. extremes, but who knows.

                    definitely not strategic coz i dont think it has any effect on the game. definitely not intimidation coz youre essentially preventing a shot that has already been written off.
