    He is best friends with Lowry & is friends with DeMar, he has also most likely matured since then.

    He was a bad fit in Memphis anyways because Gasol & Randolph clogged the lanes and the majority of the offense was run through the post limiting Rudy's game.

    Yeah, probably to hide their image after blowing up the team.

    Maybe the Raps coach will watch some tape on that
    Is that right? Coaches usually do a good job of designating In-Bound passers. I remember Tmac getting praised for that in Toronto

    Seriously man; Hollins was crazy about Rudy and it would drive me nuts when he'd be the one throwing it in. I know the most dangerous player to watch is the one throwing in bounds(to take the shot) but he made too many bone headed moves in the past in those situations. I won't ever miss THAT about Rudy Gay

    You can say that statement for every team basically, there are only like 4 or 5 teams in the league even relevant and elite level.

    Thunder, Lakers, Heat, Spurs, Celtics, Mavs(by default for their ring)

    Those are the only 6 teams that have been relevant the past few years so I dont get the point in your statement.

    Trading your leading scorer in a salary dump does not usually improve situations. I know how well the Grizz did without him the year Randolph went off and you beat the Spurs but I do not see that type of magic happening again. Especially considering how valuable your coach was just saying Rudy Gay is to the team. Prince may have had a fun little debut but he is not the same player (on either end) that he was in the mid 2000s for the Pistons.

    Includes the Celtics (.500 team) and the Lakers (5 games under .500) but leaves out the Knicks (30-15 and tied for #1 seed in the East)... smells like baiting but could just be blissful ignorance.

    My point is simple: trading for Rudy Gay and his big salary only ties the Raptors hands to a mediocre roster. That does not turn them into an "up and coming" team. I get that it might be difficult for the Raps to attract an all-star caliber player but I do not think that this was the right move for them. Especially when their frontcourt is still so shoddy and now they have two wings who like the ball and neither can really pass.

    For the Grizzlies they were a top team in the West and looking to make some noise. That roster has been together for a long-time now and chemistry is a beautiful thing in the NBA. I could have seen them surprising teams in the playoffs. Being an "on the verge" team that trades their leading scorer makes little sense to me.

    Not sure what explained it for you, but let me try. Rudy didn't really fit with the success that came 2 years ago when he was out. Then ZBo was out and the verdict wasn't in until they all came back(the core). Yes we had success but Rudy apparently still wanted to be the #1 option and when he wasn't, night in and night out; he became less happy especially when he found out the FO was actively shopping him. We were all pretty surprised down here when he was traded after the Cavs trade, but that may have set up more value for him as he wasn't as productive or efficient as they wanted in our system. So we give up a less efficient athletic scorer for other guys that MAY give us much back. It will remain to be seen how smart the new Grizz FO truly is.
    But Rudy ragging on his old teammates and wanting out is smokescreen for a hurt ego.
