The only reason BC doesn't give Ross the opportunity is because he is under pressure to win now. So he sacrifice the future in order to have results today and keep his job.
Champs will be champs...
Oh, forgot to use my inside voice.
This team is going nowhere until they teach our point guards to pass the ball and not shoot unnecessary three's all the time.
Calderon does pass, but is useless on defence. Lowry, sure he has huge potential, but hogs the ball way too much.
We need more size and strength up front. Val is good but he is just a rookie. We need some beasts up front - not sure who but there has to be some players out there that we can get.
Time to trade Calderon, Bargs, Ed Davis and maybe even Ross so we can buid this team properly with some real talent. As much as I like BC, time for him to go and we need a GM with some vision and BALLS!
Basically Casey wants to win. the life is assuming BC is telling him not to play Ross so they can win. Casey wanted to win so badly in a tank season he probably cost the Raptors a higher pick. So it's pretty logical that Casey has his own strong ideas on who he is going to win with. If Ross doesn't start it's likely because the coach doesn't want him in that role.
He's a competitor.
And again, adding Pietrus is adding a veteran. Hope he can still play. But he does address one of the criticisms levelled at this roster: that there are no vets.
Wish we traded down to get Houston's pick and Lowry. Then picked up a guy like Jeff Taylor. We would be in the same / better situation that we were in now.
"Juuuuuuuuuuuuust a bit outside. Wild Thing tried for the corner and missed."
not a bad pick up at all. would rather have him over mcguire any how.
This is a Meh move to me...positives - vet presence, good defender, above average shot. Negatives - Veteran legs, unsure how much gas he has left. I think that the pros will outweigh the cons...and I like CMund's comment above about the early in the shot clock possessions - Veterans know how to defend this, and they know how to position themselves to avoid those types of possessions
