Raptors 2010-11 RF Player Report Card - Leandro Barbosa

Next up in our 2010-11 RF Player Report Cards:

Leandro Barbosa




Quote:
'trane

Missed 24 games due to injury, and perhaps should have had surgery at the beginning of the season. Although he can still score in bunches and did win us a few games, he went 1 on 5 as the primary offensive option far too often, and provided little else. Seems like a great locker room guy, but I think he was a negative impact on the on-court development of our young team.

Grade: C-

Leandro was the most talented player in a Raptors uniform on some nights. And that says a lot about the roster. When you have specialists like Barbosa and Reggie Evans taking on key roles instead of supplementing what is there, then it's just too hard to build on any success. It's time for a more balanced roster to come together and fail or succeed on it's own merits as the team continues to develop, and it's hard to see where Barbosa fits going forward.

Grade: C

A nice piece on the wrong team. Without any kind of pecking order, or discipline, he had his fun - too much fun. Thought he could at least spell some time at the point, but really, it just gave him more of an excuse to play one on five. I think if he were healthy, he'd try to score on both baskets.

The guy has no idea how to play off his teammates and how to make this team better. When you go 1 on 5 you have to be pretty good to actually pull off some plays... and Leandro actually pulled off some amazing plays. Too bad he was also the king of not passing for an easier shot, taking horrid 3's and just not being able to mix well into the team at all. The fact that he's always getting hurt doesn't help his cause either.

Grade: C

Not a fan of his game at all. He'd be a great piece off the bench on a centending team.

Grade: C

INSIDER

he averaged 2.1 assists per game?
really?
i dont remember this guy ever passing the ball.

on a good team, he'd be an impact player... but on a shit team, he's just a waste of talent and his production is invisible.

he's our biggest trade filler this offseason, i'd be surprised to see him in a Raps uni next year.


Grade: B-
•RF•



Now it's your turn, RF. Let us know what you thought of Leandro Barbosa in 10-11.



Coming up next - Sonny Weems

Instant offense off the bench. Not very good defensively. Is at times too selfish, but he is fun to watch at times. Overall, probably more of a C but he played through injury and at times had an impact therefor I bump him up a bit.

i don't get it. He's good. He's technically better than most of the guys on the team, yet he makes the team worse. Go figure.

He was never afraid to go to the hoop. But unlike Klieza, he could actually get there.

Kleiza had a bum ankle. The fact that he played on it for 6 weeks and did what he did I give him credit. Comparing the two makes no sense.

sometimes he did. sometimes he didn't. All i know is that it really didn't matter how clear the path was or how many defenders were in his way. Come hell or high water, he was going to try dammit!

A lot of criticism for the team's most efficient scorer. Yea he was usually selfish but so was Bayless and Derozan, and at least Barbosa was effective in the 4th quarter.

He averaged only 2 assists but let's not forget that our starting SG, Demar Derozan, averaged 1.8 asts in 35 minutes! Barbosa got the same amount with 11 less minutes a game. Furthermore, PG Bayless, only averaged 3.7 asts. When driving to the basket Barbosa was less erratic then Jerryed or Demar, although they all made wild moves.

My main complaint about Barbosa is that he forced too many unnecessary 3 pt shots. Amir Johnson, Davis and Leandro were the most efficient Raptors imo.

He is who he is, given that I though he had a decent season.

I wouldn't give him anything higher than a C. He's a good player, but did not have a lot of games in which he made a significant difference. He had a stretch of 20 point games off the bench, but got himself injured again. I think that he can play better than he did this season because he was hurting from that wrist injury.

Kudos though to Bryan Colengelo from trading Turkoglu for Barbosa.

Assuming we are grading the actual player performance, and not his overall impact (ie including off-loading Turk). If the Turk deal factors in, A+ forever and ever.

Performance wise? C-. He can score in bunches, but not efficiently. He tends to shoot the team into and back out of games. His 3 point shooting wasn't quite what I'd hoped, especially considering the other 3 point options (or lack thereof) the team has. Defensively, he was a bit of a sieve, but he tried, and occasionally came up with a steal or two for his efforts. Honestly, I was mostly disappointed because him playing just took away minutes from younger players. Even though Weems had a rough year, would have liked to give him more time on the floor, or even let Bayless play at the 2 some more, just to give them that development this team needs so badly.

I'd give him a D, but he wasn't all that bad, and I expected very little from him anyway.

Him over Turk any day. Don't mind him at all, just easy on the chucking.


C for performance (Didn't really see any flashes of old Barbosa, where he can just go off, guess gotta wait for a healthier season)

A for trade

on a team with very few creators, he was invaluable.

i dont think a C is fair.

The guy played thru injuries all year long, literally won 5 or 6 games for us with little help and still brought energy off the bench every night.

I agree that he'd be far better on a contending team but I am still happy to have him here rather than Turkobrix. Barbosa gets a B from me.

its between a B- to a C+
he was kind of injured too often to make a fair judgment, but i guess being injured is part of the judgment, so in that case he can't possibly get that good of a grade

B.

I thought he was a great veteran example for a bunch of young guys: he played injured when the team needed him, he played out of position when he had to, he remained positive throughout a losing season.

He's a bit of a ball hog who thinks his next great shooting streak is around the next corner, but I can't see how he can get dissed for not having enough assists when he played point guard. I think he was chosen to be the emergency point guard because of his good ball handling rather than his ability to run an offence. I think it says more about the lack of talent on the Raptors bench. You can count on Jose getting injured this next season.

Arron Afflalo might be a cheaper and better fit for the Raps, but I don't know much about him.
