In Toronto, if you miss, you have Bosh down low who is nothing like Howard, much smaller player.

I haven't watched many Toronto games, so I may be wrong, but here is the big thing. They are 5th seed right now. Last year, they were nowhere near the playoffs, they were the 3rd WORST team in the EAST. So as long as they are winning, Hedo was a good acquisition.

Last years record: 33-49, 40%

This year: 24-22, 52%

I just wish if he isn't contributing offensively he could at least try to rebound or defend.. He cant even do those two right...

I can never understand this line of thinking. How 2 minutes of good play can override 30+ minutes of poor play. Does the NBA double the point value in 4th quarters?

yep he injured Beasley tonight. Only if he could do the same to LBJ, Howard, Kobe ect. he would earn his salary.

I understand that, and it is unbelievable that they are doing pretty decent for a team with an entirely new roster, but let me put it this way: You have played street ball before, correct? You know how there is that one guy on the team who does not score much (he does shoot when he is open) but he finds you open looks, or he starts running into the paint and dishes it out right when he gets another defender on him? That is the type of player Hedo is. Is he playing like that in Toronto? From the 3-4 Raptor games I have watched he is, but maybe I should start watching some more games until I come up with a solid conclusion.

Thing is, that's not the way he's playing right now. He's been forcing up bad shots and committing stupid turnovers. Sure the team's in 5th place right now but a lot of that has to do with Bargnani playing well, Bosh playing out of his mind, Derozan having a solid rookie year, Jack/Calderon being a decent PG duo, Marco and Amir bringing tons of energy off the bench, etc. Some of the games won have been in spite of Hedo and have been right down to the wire which as Q already pointed out, we wouldn't be in that position if he showed up the entire game. He's the second highest paid player on the team, he needs to play like it.

He also injured Derozan in practice. But tripping up Beasley evened it out i guess
