...or he sucks it up and Toronto has a killer tandem.... I just hope Lowry isn't a douche, he new, we really don't know much about him yet... It's fun though, it's fun finally having something new to talk about

And to make this even more fun, on many levels, Spain needs to win the Olympics behind strong leadership of Jose Manuel Calderon.

He would then pull a hammie in the subsequent celebration.

I hate the way this organization treats their most loyal and longest serving employee. The wicked deserve to be punished.

Bargs has no problem guarding his own player he is actually pretty good at that. It's help defending Bargs struggles with and his rebounding. Bargs for years always guarded the best big on the other team while bos would usually guard the other guy to stay away from foul trouble

Yeah, I bet Bargs will look much better on defense this season if guys like Ross, Lowry, Anderson, and Fields can stay in front of their man. I'm really excited to see how our defense will be this year. I think if we can become a top-tier (or almost top-tier) team on defense, we should be able to slide into the playoffs. If we're mediocre or only slightly above average on that side of the ball, it doesn't seem like our squad is talented enough offensively to win out a bunch of close games.

Oh and regarding Lowry and Casey's love-fest... mixed thoughts. On the one hand, it's definitely great for them to be bonding and for Lowry to have the confidence he needs to run the team. But on the other hand, Casey can't pick favorites and make them believe they're something that they aren't. Lowry hasn't played one game for us so far. Let him at least run through a proper training camp and then let's start calibrating fans' expectations on how this guy will play and how far he can take the team.

Not what I was laughing at. It was the comment about him and Bosh.

You have no idea if Bargnani is a leader or not. Just because he isn't a loud personality doesn't mean he doesn't lead. Anything I've ever heard from his teammates leads me to believe that he leads by example and with professionalism. We may hear guys like Demar and Ed talk about being leaders but that doesn't mean they are actually leading anybody.
