Default Prime Time Sports: Importance Re: Back-up PG

Today Prime Time Sports hosted Dan Shulman and Stephen Brunt to discuss the Raptors. The general consensus seems to be that our back-up PG situation will make or break this season for us.

Agree or disagree?

In brief:

Shulman: Those 10 minutes played without Calderon on the floor are going to make or break this team. Not an O'Neal injury. Not the SF position. The team will be 8-10 points in the hole every time Calderon checks out of the game.

McCowan: Very disppointed that O'Neal came to camp out of shape, but will reserve judgement until he sees him in action in the regular season.

Brunt: Bargnani is an SF in center body. Would rather have a real C and a real SF. Heard the same thing from Sam about getting Bargnani to play down low last year, and nothing came of it. Bargnani likes to shoot from the perimeter, and the only way to succeed in that regard is if Bargnani is a special talent (like a Nowitzki) to make that transition.

All agreed that the team would need a lot of things to go its way to break the 50-win barrier.
