Gray is absolute trash. Why is he starting the game and the second half? Total momentum killer to start the third quarter. I never understand why a guy who is 7 ft tall tries a lay up when all he has to do is jump a bit and dunk it.

Raptors outscored 24-4 since I started watching. Needless to say I'm not watching anymore.

So what you're saying is it's your fault the team lost.


Alright everyone, you heard the man. No one hang this loss on the players. It's all Nick's fault. He admitted it. You all saw him admit it!

Second thought. Give me Thomas Robinson instead. His athleticism is unbelievable.

lol I said he's sick last page

Cousins is better and on the trade block, so he's more realistic even though theres only a 0.1% chance we get him.

I liked him before the draft but man is he short. Is he even 6'9? Love Cousins though and always have. You can run an offense through him because he can post up, shoot from midrange and is a good passer for a bigman. He's got the rebounding instinct as well.

He just has a bad temper, but he isn't a bad guy. If Boston gets him they can quickly rebuild with him and Rondo. I'm not sure if we have anything that would interest Sacramento, or if we have the support system in place for him to succeed.

I don't get it either, man. The thing is right now, you'll see Gray regardless. Let's say Amir starts, Gray will come in and get his 10 minutes or so anyway as his backup. At least when he starts, you get his minutes out of the way early. But the guy is so bad. He is probably the worst player that I have ever seen. He was a major liability in this game. Gray and Pietrus are both stiffs, and they make up 40% of our starting lineup.

Anybody watching the Laker-Clipper game? Gasol needs to be traded asap, he looks so awkward just standing out on the perimeter to shoot 3's. He's not a fit there anymore, either it's that or the system is really screwed up. But if I were LA I'd be trying to move him before his value dips. He's not going to produce much from the 3 point arc I'll tell ya that much.

And it's all D'Antoni coaching, no wonder he can't keep a job.

Why are the Clippers starting Hack-a-Howard with 3 mins left..that is tons of time to come back and now with that Kobe jumper they're only down 2 with just over a minute left. I know Howard sucks at the FT line but you're basically giving them free points each position

That Bargs + Kleiza for Okafor deal looks pretty good right now.

i'd prefer to trade for robinson, he has less of an attitude issue. if team USA guys couldn't straighten up cousins no one possibly can.

jack summed him up well in the game, if cousins gets his attitude in check he could be a perennial all star and if he doesn't he'll be known as the guy being traded 5+ times in career i.e. beasley.

Beasley's problem isn't an attitude. It's actually the opposite. He just doesn't give a damn.

He's been terrible this year.

Ed Davis is way, way, way better than T-Rob.

I would rather see Gray play against the 2nd unit guys from another team who's PF or C would not be as good and probably not their 1st option on offence. Cousins manhandled Gray and the Raps couldn't get stops and get their game going. Start Amir and hope he plays even against their best big and then your 2nd unit can come in and take over the game.

Word is that Memphis is shopping Rudy Gay. Start the Rudy Gay to Toronto rumours all over again.

If we could get him cheap. Say Calderon + Kleiza + DeRozan would you do it? He does make $17 million a season but he would instantly be our best SF and make us playoff viable.

I wouldn't put DeRozan in any deal for Gay.
