I'm sad I missed the JO block party on my bday against the Lakers, but I'm not too disappointed hes gone, the only question is can Bosh and Bargnani together become top tandem in the league both on the offense and defensive end. This is the only way I see the Raptors ever standing a chance at doing anything not only that Jose needs to get better I still believe he can though hes number will definitely go up next year hopefully 15 and 10ish and I love how we get a guy like Pops out of nowhere and looks to have more potential than Joey.
Bargnani's emergence has certainly been the best thing about the Raptors this season. Maybe the most effective pump fake in the game, although his drives can sometimes look akward. Love how he plays against Yao.
Specifically, Marion's dunk, the opening win over Philly, the sick OT game against the Nets(with VC's unfortunate dunk), and JO's 9 block game were also memorable. Oh, and Roko's flashes have been pretty nice aswell.
Seriously though.. Bosh is a good player and we need to try and re-sign him this summer.. if he doesn't resign than I believe he is as good as gone. Which sucks because I've been very happy with Bosh's defensive production lately. He's finally starting to get some steals, block some shots and get his teammates involved with more assists. Let's hope he can keep it up.
Who are you to talk Mr. "**** that lanky bastard and trade his ass!" We're both on the same page here, what's the problem?
Yeah I'll admit I was speaking out of line. Bosh just had one of those games where he turned the ball over 6 times on awkward drives and none of his jimmys were falling so I was really pissed off. I would rather have Bargs over Bosh just because he would command much less and defends better/has more potential. Bosh is the better rebounder and better at getting to the line, but I'm not sure if he's worth 15M +. Plus we could get really good value out of him and start the rebuilding process off quickly whereas we wouldn't get as much in return for Bargnani. Hopefully that's more of a composed statement than the bolded one above.
