flynn's another Jerryd Bayless, not a real PG. That's not what the Raptors need.

I've read somewhere that Walker is probably more able to be molded into a proper PG than Knight. Plus there is something to be said for being "a winner" kind of player that can put a team on his back and will them to victory

Phil Jackson has spoken highly of Triano this season and his main rival for best coach in the game - now that Utah's Jerry Sloan has sadly left the building - Spurs head coach Gregg Popovich, was the latest to praise Triano following Wednesday's 111-100 loss to the Spurs.

"I thought Coach Triano had a great gameplan and they gave us all we could handle," Popovich said of the Raptors, who took a three-point lead into the final quarter.

"I thought they worked hard from the beginning to the end and put us in a lot of situations where it really hurt us defensively."



Blame Colangelo for filling the roster with sof Euros who don't play a lick of D

Chris Bosh GOT played by Dirk Diggler in that last play. Eating crow, Heat? Miami were too cocky when they were leading by 15. Especially when Wade hit that three-pointer...

Lebron: "You da man! You da man!
Wade: "I know."


The Mavs have life. This is the turning point in the series. It was all HEAT with their incredible defense and cue the comeback. Amazing, Dirk! Just amazing!

Donnie Walsh out as President of the Knicks.

Interim GM is Glenn Grunwald.

In all honesty, I would much rather draft a centre this year and wait until next years draft to draft our point guard of the future.

The problem with that is the fact that next years draft is stacked with small forwards, which also happens to be a position of need for the Raptors.

I'm hoping they can aquire an additional lottery pick next year, as I would be thrilled if they were able to aquire Miller/Gilchrist(my personal favourite)/Nash and Kabongo.

Saying that, I definetly prefer Knight to Kemba. Although I have major doubts about Knight becoming a pure point guard, I feel that Knight has much more room to grow and with his defensive presence and ability to shoot the three, he's a much better fit for the Raptors when compared to Kemba.

To be honest, I'd rather with our 1st try get a C at 5, and then try trade up and get PG Reggie Jackson from Boston College.

That guy has the potential to be one of the better PGs to come out of this draft.

I'd rather take a flyer on him after trading up then spend the 5 on Kemba or Knight.

I definetly like the idea of getting a C at 5, however, if the Raptors were to trade for a late first rounder I would like them to choose Iman Shumpert.

His defensive potential is off the charts. He's a spectacular athlete, with good length. He could be the next Tony Allen. That may not sound like much but, although not great offensively, Allen is a great defender.

He (Iman) could be a great role player, in my opinion.

Did Bosh just try to sell getting poked in the face or something with massive soccer theatrics?

I totally want Dirk to just plow right through him to score on a dunk.

Also Doris Burke's voice bugs me. She has a massive lisp. I don't get how you can be a sideline reporter (whose chief job is talking) when you sound like you already drank an entire case of beer and have a bag of marbles in your mouth.

My worst nightmare is that little fruit topping winning a title. I think they do it if he finds his game.

God I hope Dallas can tie it. I don't want the game winning shot to belong to RuPaul.

I believe in his rookie season, Flynn was rated by some statistic which measured how important you were to your team, as the worst player in the entire NBA.

True story, hew as in fact, detrimental to his team.

On tsn's scouting report about Flynn it says:

"Assets- A natural point guard. Lightning fast and super-quick. Pushes the ball well, making nice moves & plays along the way. An above-average passer who also excels at taking his man off the dribble and to the hoop.

Flaws- Is undersized for the NBA point-guard spot. Needs work on his outside jumper, as well as on limiting his turnovers.

Career potential- Speedy above-average point guard. "

He only averaged 18.5 minutes per game this season, missed some time with a hip injury. (which would really take away from his speed, which is his game) He may not be the most complete player, or the best passer, but he will be better then Jose is now especially to this team as it is.
