Default Boozer for #1 Pick

How bout Boozer for your pick and maybe E. Williams off your hands? He's good for at least 20 and 10 right now... and he apparently doesn't want to play in Utah. He wants to go to LA and I think Utah should trade him to the furthest place away from LA. ha. I know you guys are stocked at the PF position but CV could be great trade bait. And Bosh and Boozer would tear it up in the post. Your thoughts?

No thanks.

Also, the Raps traded E. Williams to the Spurs a couple days ago.

Considering his location is Utah, my guess would be that he is a Jazz fan.

I'm a die hard Jazz fan. The Raps are also up there too cuz of Bosh. He's a real classy guy and I like his game. I actually like Boozer's game too, but I just don't think he really likes it here. Honestly tho, he and Bosh would be a nightmare for opposing teams. And right NOW, i think Boozer's better than anybody coming out of the draft. I don't see anyone coming in this year to average his kind of numbers. Of course, somebody like Aldridge or Morrison could eventually overtake him in a few years, but you never know, right? Boozer's a sure thing... when healthy. Personally i think he extended his return deadline cuz he just didn't wanna play for us.

Exactly the reason why we can't afford to take the chance on him. We've had enough players become upset with us for one reason or another and then not give it their all. The Raps won't be taking on players who have a questionable history like Boozer.

What many people outside Toronto don't know is that Maple Leafs Sports and Entertainment, the owners of the Raptors and Leafs among other things, really look for players who are possitive role models and will contribute to the city and be positive towards the organization. That is one stipulation that they ask the General Managers to keep in mind whenever they aquire players. The GM's are free to choose the players that they want, but I'm sure that a guy like Colangelo has a similar philosophy to MLSE when it comes to choosing players. If he didn't he might not have been hired.

During the Raptors history, the majority of the major players on our team have been real character people. There have been a few bad apples but the core of the team has tended to be people who have the reputation of having good attitudes and are responsible citizens. Boozer would not be the first choice for the Raps.

Eric was traded. Even if he was still around we would never do this trade. Another pf with a big contract that hasnt showed nothing on the court to earn his contract.

I don't think anyone could have asked such a stupid question. Either this guy is literally mentally handicapped and we need to take it easy on him, or he's just ****ing around trying to see how angry he can make us.
