do you always need to have some sort of crusade?

I believe that BC is trying to trade Kapono but getting a deal that is worth it will be tough so he will keep him and Kapono will have a bigger role with our team next year.

I can't stand watching this guy,me like most of you probably think what if this guy get's hot but truth is the guy has'nt hit an important shot this year.If we are down by 20-30 point's and the game is already over he's a good shooter if we are down by 2-5 point's he can't hit ****.We got rid of Moon now we need to get rid of Crapono,some how.

If a ball falls in an empty gym... And there's no one there to see it... It's worth a 5 year 6 mill contract... Gotcha...

I've watched moon and kapono shoot shot for shot Enough times to know who is the better shooter in an empty gym.

Kapono gets more time than his play has warrented. He seems to also be sub'd in when the game is close and given many chances to get it going. How many years can we wait until kapono proves to be a valueable asset to us?
With jose, AP, and bargs on the floor... Why are we putting out a 3 point specialist that doesnt play D and doesn't shoot. I just get so frustrated thinking about it. If he's not gone by 3 today I am really going to start watching fewer raps games... It's not worth the anxiety.

who would you rather see get his playing time? Solomon? Roko? We need someone who stretchs the defence and the fact that guys are always up in his face at least proves that he is doing that.

Also it has been speculated that Kapono is getting more burn lately in order to try and help his trade value.

Problem is his value is not very high right now. I think every team knows that

a)He is overpaid
b)He doesn't shoot often
c)He is not a good defender

Then there are the external factors:

d)Poor economic situation - makes (a) more relevant.
e)2010 has biggest free agent crop possibly ever - makes length of Kapono's contract more relevant.

Only way to get him out is to take back another big contract. Based on items (b) and (c) the contract would probably look worse than Kapono's.

I don't think playing time for Kapono is a result of Jay necessarily liking him. I think it is more Jay trying to change some of the factors that make Kapono so untradeable. He can sit on the bench with Banks and tie up 10 million in cap space ever year or we can get something out of the players and perhaps even turn them into assets that can be traded. After the deadline the playing time may go down, maybe not. Unfortunately the team does not have a wealth of riches off the bench or at the wing. It is a very thin team.

on any other team he is a solid player.. he's the perfect fit for the lakers, the spurs those type of teams.. for the raps he isnt a good fit.

it's that simple he is a pure 3pt shooter and i think he is an amazing one at that.. just for the raps he isnt a good fit.

trade him for MoPete.

Is Kapono the most overpaid scrub in the LG today?

dirtybird
02-21-2009, 02:15 PM
I'll start off by saying even if the Raptors got the same production from Kapono as he gave the Heat in his final season, he would still be vastly overpaid.

That being said, half of it is that Kapono was never really that good to begin with, but the other half is his terrible utilization by the coaching staff. Both Sam and Jay have encouraged "Kapono" to diversify his game (i.e. take the ball to the hole) and the results have not been pretty. Instead of just using him in the exact same manner that the Heat did, they tried to make him into something he was not.

Hey gotta question Bryan Colangelo on that...what was he thinking...:mad:

KJK
02-21-2009, 11:24 PM
He was thinking that Bosh was getting double and triple teamed in the playoff series the season before. Yes, he overpaid for Kap and yes, we're getting almost zero production out of him. I remember a lot of people being happy when they signed him though. At the time I personally thought they overpaid but I understood what Colangelo was trying to do when he signed him, which was create space for Bosh inside.

i can seriously seeing the raptors getting the first overall pick next year in the draft. Then the draft Blake Griffin. Make some off season moves such as let Parker become free agent and voskuhl also graham and they get the money off delfino... Resign marion for prob like 10m 3 years and ron artest 10m too. and sign a backup sf or draft one in the second round to backup marion. Then are lineup would look pretty scary..

C- Blake Griffin (i know hes a pf)/ Andrea Bargnani/ Nathan Jawai
PF- Chris Bosh/ Kris Humphries/ Patrick O'Bryant
SF- Shawn Marion/ (2nd round pick selection or free agent signing
SG- Ron Artest/ Jason Kapono
PG- Jose Calderon/ Marcus Banks/ Roko Ukic

that looks pretty ELITE, i say even competitor for the title...

and also i would try to move kapono on draft day for anything we can get thats not a badd contract

not elite at all, our bench still sucks

i say draft Aminu and Harden. those two will be our future. its like the Durant and Green show- Toronto style. trade our pick + Kapono/ Ukic for 2 picks that will land us those two guys and we're set. Also sign Artest, Re-Sign MArion, let Parker stay for 2-3M off the bench, pick up a cheap wing player (maybe Graham for 2M)- i'd say we'd be pretty solid. Also rest Calderon for the rest of this year.


Bargnani/ Pat O'Bryant/ Jawaii
Bosh/ Humphries
Marion/ Aminu / Graham
Artest/ Harden/
Calderon/ Parker/ Banks


or if all else fails
try to get #1 and get GRiffin to compensate for Bosh's departure. Sign and trade his *** to get his max money for draft picks.

He doesn't. He had a bad stretch with the travels but I think he has worked hard on it and doesn't travel as much anymore. Mind you he didn't travel that much in the first place because he is only averaging 1 turnover per game this season. If you are going to criticize then be fair.

This guy got no game, I will repeat it again, he is a one dimensional player, does not defend, yes maybe he is a system player but this guy make moves which are out of his
range as a player, he puts the ball down more often, attempts to drive the ball to the basket with a teardrop and changes the momentum of the game when he misses.

Hating on him is not only normal but it is a must !!!

02-28-2009, 01:55 PM
Kapono has actually been pretty consistent lately

on the season shooting 43 % from 3 and 44 % overall which is good.

we could definitely utilize his skill set more though


if there's one player that should be getting called garbage right now its jose calderon, been trashhhh lately except the 2nd knicks game

lol depresser meaning makes the fans depressed with his poor play( lol my personal opinion and i dont kno if its a word) and dependent meaning he cant create for himself.
yes i added some good things because i didnt post it to only blast him, he has good qualities, and momentum breaker meaning when we go on a run he just kills it or ruins the flow with some missed shots and/or fouls, turnovers, etc. Inconsistent is my opinion, i dont kno what ya'll think.:clap:

I think some of you should ask Miami fans and players if they think Kapono is "garbage" he was one of their x-factors in winning a CHAMPIONSHIP. Pat Riley (I think he might know a thing or two about basketball players) admitted he made a mistake in not re-signing him. He is a great role player on a team that has a winning attitude. So many Raps fans want to blame the teams faults and struggles on one player....."Kapono sucks", "Bosh needs to be a better leader", "Andrea is too soft", "Parker is too inconsistent". Truth is most NBA teams would love to have those players. Personally I don't think there is an easy answer to why we don't win, because we look pretty good on paper, I really think they might just lack that killer instinct, that drive that wins games, I really like our roster and I think they have the potential to be great, but they need another piece that will give them that drive.

Neither can most of the Raptors roster, are you holding that against ALL OF THEM? Also you find JUST Kapono's play depressing? If that is true then I am curious what kind of play you expected from him in the first place.

yes i added some good things because i didnt post it to only blast him, he has good qualities, and momentum breaker meaning when we go on a run he just kills it or ruins the flow with some missed shots and/or fouls, turnovers, etc. Inconsistent is my opinion, i dont kno what ya'll think.:clap:
Inconsistent is just a feeling or something? Because beyond one bad month he has been relatively consistent with his production (or lack of) this season.

I don't see how he is a momentum breaker, when he makes a 3, he keeps the momentum going. When he doesn't he is suddenly a momentum killer? What about when AP misses a jumper? Is he the same?

LMFAO...

Some raptor fans are looking at the numbers but never look at in-game intangibles.

It is hilarious and delusional.

^ What's hilarious is the need for a new scapegoat thread. First it was the coach, then the GM, now it's Kapono. No one is saying that Kapono is great -- in fact, most say the opposite, so the delusional comment is basically unwarranted. There are more problems with the team than one person, and the crusades are getting old too. ;)

That is my point about the crusades. At what point does the poster admit he was wrong that Sam wasn't the problem, that making a trade for the sake of making a trade MIGHT not have helped and so on?
