I liked that. Real emotion about screwing up, something we haven't seen from enough Raptors this year. He knew he screwed up and aknowledged it with his anger, and from that the young man learns.

The first year is the toughest for a european point guard, and Roko's learning curve is no diferent. I look forward to seeing him play more because he brings so many things Joses can't. This tandem are an execellent duo.

Know we just have to give them time.

As long as his anger was directed at himself and not the coach....

He's still young and made mistakes. But he needs an opportunity to play through mistakes sometimes without the fear of automatically being yanked. Some coaches need to take some psychology courses and figure out how to properly motivate players.
