The communication between Roko and Parker was key in the final 2 quarters, which led to some nice backdoor passes and easy dunks for Parker. The team in general needs to communicate more both on offense and defense. As far as I'm concerned, Parker is probably the most offensively gifted player on the Raptors squad next to O'Neal. Parker has just been underperforming in my mind so far this season, although he may be over the hill, I'm not quite sure. The following few games will indicate whether or not the prior statement is true. Bosh has been frustrating me with awkward play style and Calderon, Kapono and Bargnani are all too inconsistent. Parker's defense is definitely shaky and it sucks that he got thrown into that roll by default, but his shooting touch and veteran savvy makes him a very valuable player that I really don't want the Raptors to lose. The only way I would want to lose Parker in a trade is if BC has a chat with him and gets him to re-sign this offseason for a 3-year deal of 12M or something. But I guess him and Andrea are our only real valuable trading pieces, according to Donnie Walsh.
