That's why I always say that Bargnani suffers from Vince Carter syndrome. The only difference is that VC did settle but he had such an immense amount of talent that even on cruise control he managed to put together a borderline HOF career. Bargs on cruise control isn't even worthy of cracking an NBA starting 5.

Mike James would be useless on a team with that much offensive firepower. On a team like that I think if we are going just based on who's better suited I think Alvin Williams would be perfect with that lineup. A team where at least 2 starters can create off the dribble and 3 can score 20 pretty easily. Vince and Jalen would be able to split some time at point with Alvin. And Alvin would be the tough, hard nosed defensive guy who wouldn't command the ball and you wouldn't have to run plays for him. Because with Bosh/Jalen/Vince a shot happy point guard would be shooting yourself in the foot so to speak.

I was thinking the same thing about James. His one season here was maybe one of the best by a point guard in Toronto, but if we're looking to the best actual team, he wouldn't be a good fit. Not in the starting lineup anyway.

Yeah, crazy thing is, I just looked it up and Mike James was leading the team in shot attempts (15.5 to Bosh's 14.2). So essentially, he was the #1 scoring option on the team. I'm not really sure how he'd play as the #4 option but even if he was capable of adjusting to it, I don't think he'd be happy with that role.

Mike James was a gangster that year I NEED him in my 5 for all time Raptors lineup. Him/VC is our Westbrook/Durant.

If with a lineup with Bosh, VC and Jalen Rose in it your point guard was taking as many shots as Russell Westbrook, yeah that'd be problems.

VC can shoot as much as durant, Jalen as much as kev mart, bosh Ibaka, canny Perkins.

Kev Martin comes off the bench. And Ibaka makes most of his points from open midrange J's and dunks. That starting lineup they have in OKC is pretty much a 2 headed monster with other guys who just get open and wait for the pass.

Yep ! Sure would... everything I have seen so far makes him my favorite. Humility, work ethic, sense of humour with the media, willingness to learn, and better - faster adjustment to the NBA game than I anticipated.

Frankly Iam really impressed on his foul control. Bing physical as a player, being Euro and being a rookie... he has all the prereq's to have every bad call go against him ; but he manages.

I did fully declare this is emotional choices as opposed to talent assessment or logic.

Fair point. Hakeem for me occupys that same spot Barges now has in my heart. Talent yes. An ingredient of a team I was thrilled with at the time....

But his limited injury plagued time here just never matarialized into something tangible...

When he was signed and AD was supposed to move over to the 4 ... and Vince... well that was the team that was going to make a deep run for the finals... and it never happened...

I don't have much doubt that 3-4 years from now Valanciunas would be on everyone's team. Right now its debatable, but I could see someone making a case for 3rd center.
