    That would be pretty damn cool if that happens and might be really good for L.A also (or cause more conflict.... LOL)

    and Bosh to the Heat to join Wade. That would've been awesome... I would've respected LeBron way more if he went there.
    Why have great rivals when you can join them and have none.... Lebron James where losing the spirit of competition happens!

    Is an interesting thing to watch how it unfolds.
    this is right. I expect davis to suffer from not being with caldy. Although I'm quite certain caldy's not the only guy who can get him those shots, or get that production out of him, I just don't see him playing as well, at least in the immediate future.

    Bottom Line is this, and Kenny said it best on TNT last night. Memphis, did they get better? not sure, it could go both ways. Toronto Raptors are definitely a better team after this trade. Rudy Gay and Derozan can both play inside. those two guys will be a hard match up for most SG and SF tandems in the NBA and the NBA is very much a game of having the better matchups night in night out.
    Raptors Franchise Checklist:
    Rebuild with young players [x]
    Build contending team [ ]
    Host NBA All-Star Weekend [ ]
    Win Championship [ ]

    Notice that every Raptors fan is saying that they won the trade and that we are all idiots.

    Notice how every non-Raptors fan is saying that Detroit or Memphis won the trade.

    Any quotes you want to post of the Raptor fans calling EVERYONE idiots just so no one thinks you are making that up to get some attention.

    I also noticed you have Andre Drummond in your sig... That's nice

    No, I haven't noticed that. I have noticed a bunch of Raptors fans say the raptors got the worst of the deal, myself included. You shouldn't make generalizations or judge a group because of some bad apples.

    Actually I see a lot of non-Raptors fans saying that the Raptors won. I don't agree with them but it seems a lot people have a higher opinion of Rudy Gay than me.

    Mostly every raptor fan is saying that they won the trade in this thread. Maybe 1 or 2 including yourself is saying they didn't.

    No wild goose chases for me but I'll take your word for it that ONE fan may have talked trash but that does not reflect the entire fanbase. Which is why I found your comment insulting but I do think the Raptors got the better of the trade for reasons I've mentioned in previous posts (Though I mentioned that I believe that each team got what they wanted for there own reasons whether it's sheding cash, staying competative or immediately improving there squad).

    That's my opinion and to each there own.

    Toronto got a legit SF in his prime who just so happens to be Lowry's best friend.

    I thought Toronto won. Memphis and Detroit dumped their contracts and Toronto was the beneficionary, pretty simple to me. Always good when you can add one of the better scorers in the league to your squad. I'd be pretty excited personally if I was a Toronto fan, I think Gay will average 23-24 PPG as the main man in t-dot.
