Bring Back Damon
 
Raptor blog "All Balls Don't Bouce" is lobbying for the Raptors to bring back Damon to help us with some depth at the PG spot. :giggle:

Quote:

Watching the Toronto Raptors in the pre-season, their most glaring weakness is their depth, particularly at the point guard position. While Roko Ukic isn't quite ready yet, and Will Solomon has apparently been spending more time collecting sneakers than assists during his time in Toronto.

I'm lobbying for a return of the Raptors first ever lottery pick, Damon Stoudamire. We don't need him to average 19.5 points a game like he did for us 10 years ago, we just need some solid minutes off the bench in support of Jose Calderon. Damon could be that savvy vet, who can initiate the offence and isn't looking for his own shot all the time, (like some people).

It's that simple. We can send Roko to the D-League to get some minutes, because he can play, The Stampede need a point guard as well, with Randy Livingston retiring and becoming an Assistant Coach this season.

Damon wanted to play for a championship, but I'm sure more importantly he still wants to play, which is something he isn't doing right now. Returning to where he got his start, he'll be getting some minutes, the Raptors will compete (remember, they play in the Eastern Conference), and he finally can end the smattering of boos he gets whenever he sets foot on the ACC hardwood.

Problem solved.

Jose/Damon/Ukic sounds good to me!Especially if we run into injury issues with Jose!

Use solomon as a backup 2 guard, and Roko as a 3rd string pg.
Adams as a 3rd string 2guard
Moon,Kaps,Joey as sf

I agree except i would start Kapono over Moon at this point.

If he wasnt one of the worst players in the NBA once traded to SA I would say sure why not, but at this point hes finished. Him and Eric Snow are in the same boat, maybe he should look for a tv gig like Eric has now with nbatv. Damon cant do anything even close to avg anymore, it was sad to see him drop off so much.

you dont know me 10-24-2008 12:46 PM

o damon. he's all washed up now.
i wouldn't mind him over here. he should be cheap.
as said... we could make him backup to caldy. and roko stays put as 3rd stringer.
and let little willy go. the fucking guy sucks!

Derrick Martin the Second ... Damon is over the hill. We are better off developing Roko. With Damon here, Roko won't play too much and he wouldn't learn how to play!
