Default The new Joey?

Well, after watching the minny game I"m back on the Joey bandwagon.

I really can't believe i'm saying this.

If Joey can play like that he would really solve a lot of our problems. He doesn't have to be spectacular, just be our 5th best starter and play 25 mins. Rebound and drive to the basket.

Jamario can be productive coming off the bench. This would allow us to be more creative with our rotation, very rarely sliding Joey over to the 4.

I can't agree with you here. Joey started over both Moon and Kapono? It won't happen. I'll admit Joey has played well, but we saw the EXACT same thing last year. More confidence and more willing to take his man down on the low post, and it all changed once the season started.

that'd be nice if he could step up and be who we wanted him to be outta nowhere, but I doubt it'll happen.

Have we not learned nothing from the 100 years of pre-season in all sports?

It means nothing!

Start over Moon? God no.

Take whatever remaining minutes Hassan Adams was pegged to get at SG/SF? Sure.

Its clear starting line up on Oct 29th

Calderon
Parker
Moon
Bosh
Oneal

6th man: Andrea Bargnani

Joey will take Hassan's spot, he will be more effective imo.

Joey Graham as a starter with the Raptors? Only if he proves he deserves to while picking-up scrap minutes in the regular season. He's a player that needs to show that he still deserves a shot, he needs to take every single minute he plays as a an opportunity to show what he can do. In his case, everything he does in the pre-season only shows that he should be on an NBA bench, nothing more.

I'd rather see Adams get more time than Graham when he gets over his (hammy?) health issues and becomes more comfortable. That way it won't leave one of our 3's guarding a SG when Parker is out.

Joey's prob is he lacks the b ball IQ..he has the tools to be a solid player in the leaugue..putting him in the starting lineup would be pointless..because it wont be a long term commitment ,sure moon isnt looking the best but he adds toughness and defense to our lineup...Im suprised he doesn't work more on his offensive game in the offseason (moon) he can't put the ball on the floor to save his life...he would easily average an extra 5-10 points if he could do that.
