Seriously, I think JJ can keep this up all year, to an extent. Ryan won't shoot as well as he has from the floor all year, but JJ is primed to break out. I predicted he'd be our third best player this year, and I don't think that's impossible. Looking good. So fundamentally sound.

Glen Davis is shooting 8-26 (31%) from the same range.

Glen has been awful...


Bass is one of the absolute best mid range shooters in the league, not even just big men. Always been his biggest strength.

Anderson, again. Just ship the MIP to Orlando already! It's going to one of our whities :nod:

ManRam
01-01-2012, 08:04 PM
If there's one positive from the Bass trade already (and I'm still 100% fine with it) is that it has opened up the door for Anderson to get 30 minutes a game, and start. He's not playing center ever either, which is good for him.

Corey

Calderon playing his best basketball in years.

No one seems to be noticing

The problem for him over the years since 2007/2008 was injuries. His ankle injuries took away his lateral quickness and he turned into a bad defender.

He's alot healthier this year, his ankles are 100%, he's the longest Raptor tenured on the team.

He'll be a Top 12 PG in production this year.

Raptors got ****ed in the *** again by the refs.

There were some bad calls, for sure. But they went both ways. Still...scoring 15 points in the 4th, and allowing 32 often isn't solely because of the refs. They just weren't hitting big shots, and the Magic did. Toronto had plenty of chances to win this game, they just didn't.

Also, going 27-29 from the FT line looks like one of the bigger reasons this game was favoring you guys for a long time. We didn't shoot much better from the field, we didn't win the rebounding battled, we had more TOs...but those FTs were a big difference.

I'm telling you man, when John Wall gets his jumpshot down he's going to be a beast, he's got his speed back now and can finish around the rim. Him and Mcgee have some good chemistry together, they should trade Nick Young and build around the core of Mcgee/Wall/Crawford.

Also, Rondo is killing it this year, if the C's trade him they can get some good value back.
