Amazing win. Had to beat Indiana and the Refs who both threw down the gauntlet. Very fun to watch.
Other things I loved:
Amir's best 30 seconds ever. Love the guy.
Bargnani finding his role and making it work.
Jack voicing his opinion and letting people know what's what.
Not perfect, but much better floor time for the right guys.
Val - the dude's had it rough, but I like him, and he's learning via some tough beatdowns.
Regarding trades, I think Bargnani is a better and more valuable asset to most teams than Boozer. I am not sure which one is the better fit for the Raps.
To those worrying about having a 10 mill player come off the bench, I'll repeat and elaborate what a few others have said over the past days: We're unlikely to sign big free agents. Spending via trade, and overpaying Bargnani and Fields isn't the worst thing that could ever happen.
It's comforting to have the 5-7 million in space in case you need to resign a guy, or pick up a mid-level free agent, but I am coming around to the idea of letting MLSE worrying about balancing the books and just enjoying the product on the floor.
