1.) I think Sam is going to get fired this year. The guy does seem extremely cocky especially in his interviews with the media. Not to mention the guy clashed with both Vince and Rafer and possibly a few more players who have yet to come out. The guy is a passionate coach who believes in hard work, which I respect, but as a leader you can't always rely on your passion. He clashed with Babcock last year knowing Babcock was a pushover but he would think twice with a GM like Bryan as Bryan has Sam on a very tight leash ("Just take a picture" LMAO!!). Hope Sam learned some strategies and plays during the summer.
2.) So they really are keen on putting Bargs at C.. besides the fact he is 7'1 and 255 pounds I still don't see him as the answer to our C in the future. The guy really needs to learn how to play in the paint first; not necessarily to stay there but so he can mix his game up a bit.. I guess that would come with time but is it wise to make a guy turn away from his gifts (superb shooting and good driving skills).. Hope the Raptors didn't pick him just cause he was one of the biggest guys in the draft.. that's just my opinion though I am optimistic about him. He looks up to Sabonis and wants to model his game after him, and Sabonis was a great inside-out centre so.
3.) We all know that TJ Ford is lightning quick, great court vision, and is a good athlete, but what I want to know is has the guy developed strength to play better D and has he improved on his jumper? I sure hope he has.
4.) Joey Graham a STAR?!? The guy looked soo lost last year.. 'Hoffa lost' meaning he had no idea what he was doing.. like a deer in front of headlights.. Yes he has tools and skills to become a GOOD player, but he lacks killer instinct and basketball IQ (IMO) to be effective.. What he needed was to build some confidence over the summer to play NBA ball... Hope he got help.
