Some of you guys are really good consipiracy theorists..you should work for major newspapers and get some serious money.
Sam isn't afraid of anything... remember how he handled Rose and Wince (the two stars) when they weren't doing what they were supposed to? Remember when Garbo was sucking but there was a lot of pressure to play him... he sat.
I think it's more accurate to say that Sam and TJ have a good relationship... Sam knows TJ and what he's capable of and he's going to give him a long leash in order to get where he needs to go.
We've never once actually heard anyone on the Raptors
team say anything to suggest TJ is becoming a problem in the locker room...this is speculation gone wild.
