Default Banks vs Jack

Should Jack automatically be given the back up role to Jose Calderon ? I really like how Banks looks so far. Banks is healthy now so it looks like a pretty good battle in pre season. Banks is our best defender at the pg position so I can see both Banks and Jack splitting some time .

Banks REALLY has to earn his minutes IMO. He's been a bum the last couple of years, Jack is good and young, and we just signed Jack to a long contract.

No fuckin' way. If Banks was thought to be significant at all BC would have signed Kleiza + ? instead of Jack with our MLE.

The sad part is that we have 17.5Mil wrapped up in PG's, none of which are All-Stars, at least not yet. That's mucho mucho denero's.

If Banks shows improvement and willingness to play at high level, the best thing to do is to trade him and one of the existing big for a better big . Anyway, we can have Jack, Jose and Banks splitting meaningful minutes at PG; unless Jose or Jack suffers injuries, I don't see Banks playing too much.

If Jose or Jack goes down with an injury, our main backup won't be Banks. It'll likely be a combination of Belinelli & Douby or Banks. Yesterday, Triano said that one thing he really likes about Belinelli is that he is creative, smart and can play the PG position.

hahaha, this is a legit thread?!

not only will banks not overtake jack as the backup, he is behind marco and douby on the list and is probably the 1st person on the roster that the coaches will put on the inactive list, and this is including sonny weems

Fantastic. Let's have a natural 2 guard play the back up. Banks has proven in the NBA that he can handle the position when he needs to. If one goes down, I see him easily become the back up. Hence why he's third string.

Douby should take him game to Europe where he'd excel.

I like banks defense, and I think there might times during the season where he will be used - besides when jose/jack are injured. He's really the only one capable of defending rondo or harris, and I would not be shocked to see him play against NJ or Boston.

I was very pleased with banks this pre-season, last season he was very bland, but he was injured. And, his salary aside, he was a promising guard when he was signed by d'antoni. The fact is, if he was making 3 instead of 5, perception about him would be very different.

Banks lost any chance of any playing time this year when he decided he was too good for summer league. Good Game, Fuck off Marcus.

Banks is finally healthy, and he's actually showing signs of life, but in no way, shape or form should he supplant Jack as being the backup here. You're not going to base your decision of a few minutes of a non-meaningful game (Banks) over what someone's been doing in meaningful games for the past 3 seasons (Jack).

This thread should be locked. Another overreaction by Raptors fans not looking at the big picture.

I just often wonder why people cannot just forget the salaries, forget nostalgia, forget everything that isn't about straight up performance and be happy that both players can play.

It's about raising the overall talent level of the team. If one goes down, ya know you have another that can contribute.

A strong Banks means a strong Bench. A strong Jack means a Strong bench.

Strong = Good.
