He can't play the 2 for the many reasons that the people above already mentioned.

- His handles are horrible. He's very prone to turnovers and offensive fouls when handling the ball.

- His way too slow to cover 2-guards. You'd see 2's (and 3's) blowing by him with ease last year.


I see Joey as a career backup or at best maybe a Corliss Williamson if use properly. He'll be a decent bench player for the duration of his rookie contract with the Raptors IMO.

Joey is a small forward. Not a very good one at that. I was very disappointed with his play last season. He looked so disinterested and often coasted out there. He needs to grow a heart this off-season and shut his critics up the way Charlie did.

C'mon Joey...wake up! Or you gonna be ballast in a trade.

Rookies do not adjust to the NBA the same way. Some slide in like they were always there, and then there are others that take some time to adjust.

Unhappy Joey on the Bench

Joey has alot of potential and I think someday he will be a starter. He is decent on defence, has a good jumper, and is very athletic. He can run the floor well if the raps are going to become that kind of team. I even think someday he will be an ALL STAR!! Right now with CV and Mo Pete he is going to be on the bench.
