What BC is saying now is essentially what Babcock said back in the day. Problem is Babcock was a nerd, so no on took him seriously. BC may not have any more practical knowledge but he certainly has the air of a confident man about him.
Torap, I've always hated on Babcock. But with the Raptor's playing so horribly, I did some reading, and in retrospect, it looks like Babcock might of known exactly what he was doing.

Fact is Carter turned into a liability, and he managed to trade him without getting a liability back.

Calderon/Bosh/Mitchell/Cap Room.

I apologize Mr. Babcock, you served Collagenlo a tasty dish in stride for a wide open layup and he bobbled the ball horribly.
