It worked for Orlando, because he could switch the ball back and forth from him to Lewis back in 2009, which is a huge reason why they beat the Cavs that year, because it was hard to defend Lewis and Turkoglu at the same time. Not to mention he was there for like5 years, and after only one season, ppl already complaining that his game is garbage. Triano is an awful coach, not cuz he cant teach defense, but because he cant use what he has, and what he does have he cant use in the rite way. If Turkoglu played the same role here like he did in Orlando, then him and Bosh would have been lethal. Toronto would defintely had made the playoffs, and we would have made some noise too.
Well, you had two guys in Calderon and Turk that NEEDED the ball to be effective. And I disagree Turk + Bosh would have been lethal, it would definitely cause match up problems on the offensive end, but the RAPS would still get torched on the defensive end like they did last season because there is no DWIGHT HOWARD on the RAPS roster to cover up the deficiencies.
