Good title. Demar showing he should be the #1 option for this team.

I admit I haven't payed attention to the NBA since I used to play NBA Jam, but I just decided to look at the standings since the Raptors win streak and what do I see? The L.A. Clippers are the best team in the league? The clippers??????? I know I'm out of the loop but is this some kind of joke?

Anything can happen in the sad sack Eastern Conference. As crazy as it sounds, there is still plenty of time for the Raps to get back into playoff contention.

In any event, at this point, I think it's clear that the loss of Bargs was addition by subtraction.

Bargs was traded? To who? And for what? lol I haven't watched since bosh left, I use to watch every game and went to a few as well... But the Miami heat thing left a bad taste in my mouth.
I'm glad derozen is doing well though, I was pumped when we drafted him.

Well they have one of the best young forwards in the game in Griffin, plus the best point guard in Chris Paul, and some guys with a ton of experience who really know how to play the game. I don't truly believe they're as good as the numbers show, but they're still a solid team.

10-20 would be five games out of a playoff spot in the western conference, too.

I was referring to Bargs being sidelined due to injury.

I have been a Bargnani supporter all along. But the fact of the matter is, this team is better with Ed Davis starting. It's time to trade Bargnani, this team plays better without him.

The thing is do you trust BC? Trading Bargs for crappy players is my concern. BC stinks has had 5 years to build a winner and he has FAILED!

When Bargs got injured, Calderon/ED stepped up. The work ethic is at a high level w/o Bargs. AB is lazy and it shows.

I just don't trust BC in trading Bargs. He's probably worse than babcock.

Toronto definitely loses that trade but its not so bad for Sacramento as they get the best player in the trade/top 3 PG and they lose DMC who has been a bit of a distraction for them (multiple team-initiated suspensions).

Its rumoured that Lowry is being shopped (and knowing BC, we'll probably get 2nd or aging vet) but if that trade ever goes through (and it won't; I strongly doubt Boston trades Rondo) then I'd (and a lot of people) immediately stop watching the Raptors.

Bargnani's value is low, what could you possibly get for him?

Nope. They have the most athletic front court in the NBA with Deandre and Blake, CP3 is the best PG in the NBA, their bench is amazing with Crawford, Bledsoe, Barnes and Odom just lighting up other team's second units. And Billups and Grant Hill aren't even back yet.

They are legit.

Haven't been keeping up with the rumours, I missed last nights game too. What's the new trade rumour you guys are talking about, cause I see some saying Bargs, then others saying Lowry?

edit: Lowry to the Bulls wtf

Such a sweet shot, but, yeah, you're right--the time has come.

Lowry deserves a longer look before we consider dealing him

I'd agree, but if we're able to acquire a top flight forward/swingman for something around Lowry + Bargnani I'd do the deal.
