Before the season started I posted one of his quotes that basically amounted to "Last season we lost by single and double digits."

Unbelievable.

I heard an interview with Joey Graham by Eric Smith that led me to believe Joey is one of the smarter Raptors. It could have been just a one time thing, or it could have been because he was talking about HIS past, but he sounded articulate and well-informed of what had happened to him.

Chill, it's probably just a phase he's going through.
I still like him as a player though and he should be a great player in two to three years, but by then he'll be average. His athleticism is still fun to watch.

My beef with what he said is that he could be REPLACED with a better dunker.

James White. Cant say his name enough. I found out Iggy didnt want to particpate in the dunk contest because he said it would be difficult to duplicate what he did last time. Which probably could explain why others like Kobe, Vince havent participated again. They may feel they cant put together dunks that could top thier previous performance. Well i cant believe that in regards to Vince but Kobe i can. J.Rich, D.Mason as well. But we know why Iggy isnt in it again.

Why does the comment make him a dumbass? I don't see what wrong with his answer. He wants to win to get the money. What motivates one guy may not motivate the next.

Also how does his wanting to win have any connection to him as a player currently and in the future?

If that's what he's playing for, then let him.
No one told them that you had to dunk with a passion for the contest.
They were invited if they wanted to participate or not.
We'll just see if this attitude ruins the dunk contest or not.

He is a dumbass for saying it. I bet a lot of players feel that way about the game, AS events, etc., but they are smart enough to not say it.

Oh, and do you get money if you win? I thought you were paid to enter, and winnings go to your charity or something.

he doesn't get paid to win, he gets paid just for making the rookie team.

example of what you should say when talking about being selected for the rookie game courtesy of Andrea Bargnani:
"yes i'm excited. it's nice to be recognized"

example of what not to say when talking about being selected for the rookie game courtesy of Tyrus Thomas:
"whatever man, free money"

Yeah. I didn't tell my professor what I thought of his lecture yesterday. I'm a smartie.

He has kids looking up to him etc., all that rainbow ****, so he really shouldn't be saying things like that.

If Bargnani said it I doubt he would be called moron as much as Tyrus.

How so? I didn't realize that the question about his feelings on being in the dunk contest was a multiple choice one.

What was the correct answer? How should he feeling about being in the dunk contest?

I don't really care. Kid comes from a real poor background so I can see why money means so much to him. He has a nice contract for a rookie but he's probably just caught up in getting all that he can cause he's never has had that much in his past. I'm sure as time flies by he'll start humbling himself. Or become more of an ass, either way I can't fault him for being a 19 year old and just want to get more cash.
