Default Re: Wings not 'as bad' as everyone thought they were

Whos to say the raps dont go out at the trade deadline and pickup a sg?

Our wings are solid, we'll be fine. The Raps look great, im not worried about jermaine he'll come around soon, hes shown flashes of greatness already.

Detriot will be a great test for us.

The days are over when Toronto gets pushed around in the paint, interior play is what were all about.

First of all I would like to ask everyone to stop saying that we have three allstars. We have one. His name is Bosh. Calderon is barely top 7 at his position and will only ever become an allstar as an injury reserve. JO has so far been far and away from his glory days in Indiana and right now is only a better than average starting center in the league.

Our bench still sucks. Our wings have probably played the best they will all season (against teams with no allstar wings). We will make the second round but I doubt we advance past there.

Our cap situation also isn't ideal after swallowing Jermaine's contract and extending Jose. Bargnani has to develop into a stud for us to have any chance come the post-season. And by stud I mean 14/7/2blocks in 25-30 minutes off the bench. That is very hard to do for him as of now.

Having Bosh and JO in the paint has certainly helped the wing players in that they don't have to cheat to the middle as much anymore to help out, Thus they can concentrate on their man better...IMO.

Colangelo is a genius to turn a redundant player into JO.
