toronto needs a veteran at the PG position to set up buckets for all the youth on our team. we need a distributor at the PG slot, not a scorer. and i seriously doubt you've watched much of brevin knight OR eric snow recently because they are not on the same level. snow is out there to bring the ball past half, then pass it to bron, while trying to play OK defense. knight lead the league in assists not too long ago, and is accustomed to playing with young players while providing leadership.
and telfair? OVERRATED. he's the 3rd string PG on a team as horrible as Portland... i dont want this pint sized PG or his shaq sized ego anywhere near the raptors.
also... we won't be missing james' offensive contributions whatsoever. bosh, charlie, joey, and our draft pick will all be looking for more touches next season... we need a distributor who can play solid D... and thats knight.
