Lets see join a title contending team or the worst team in the league? Hmm tough decision I guess he wants to start and stink it up. He would have fit in PHX better. But if you could either back up TJ ford or Nash why would you choose to backup Ford? But then again he does play the 2 and the raptors desperatly need a 2. So I guess I understand him joining the Raptors now.

The Raptors aren't one of the best teams but come on they are definetly not the worst. The Raptors are better than New York, Philly, Atlanta, Charlette and Portland just to name a few. Maybe Salmons thought that he would get more playing time with the Raps.

The raptors are definetly far from the worst team in the league. And Salmons was offered more cash from Toronto. The raps are also styling their play like the suns run and gun offense. Salmons probably can get more playing time in Toronto as well. Nash plays extensive minutes and Bell has the starting job at the 2. In toronto Salmons could compete for the starting 2 spot.

um id have to disagree with u that u guys are better than us(philly), cuz u aren't. but i will admit, u guys are a team on the rise, and that ford was a great pickup. Bargnani isnt gonna come in and average 15, but he will be good. Nesterovic is a servicable center, but nothing more, but any1 is an improvement to araujo and sow. And idk anything about parker but i heard hes pretty good and nba ready, plus u got salmons from us(i didnt want him anyways), he has potential but hasnt been close to meeting it, he plays good 1 game then bad in the next 4. So yeah, u guys are getting better but ur not better than us.

I agree that Philly has a better team based on last years results and i think any team with AI will always make the playoffs. based on the teams outlooks for the future Toronto has a lot of potential and philly is a sinking ship. By the end of last season we were playing just under .500 ball, around what philly was playing. Webber is fading quikly, Dalembert has a terrible contract and last year didn't show any value for it. AI might be gone, but i gotta love Igoudala (who should be a raptor if Babcock wasn't such an idiot).
