Chisholm: Raptors shift away from FIBA ball

Quote:
Ever since mid-season, when Colangelo shipped off his marquee summer get in Jermaine O'Neal for Shawn Marion, his moves have followed a simple and recognizable logic: athleticism, hustle and versatility now rule the day. Patrick O'Bryant, Pops Mensah-Bonsu, Quincy Douby, Reggie Evans and now DeMar DeRozan all adhere to that trend. Gone are the days of overly relying on heady European imports after that strategy left the team soft, defensively weak and toughness adverse. The club's heavy dependence on those players seemed to willfully ignore the direction of a league dominated by perimeter players with the athleticism and speed to create their own offence, to pressure opposing defences with their individual talents. DeRozan, in clear acknowledgement of NBA reality, truly punctuates the focus of the future and the shift away from FIBA-ball.
A balance ala LA Lakers is the key.

So according to Chisolm, we need more wing players that can create and score off one on ones?


Where does that leave Bosh?
A 130 million dollar no defense playing puss?

This was a real unfair slag on FIBA ball. Andrea and Garbajosa are two of the best defenders this team has seen in the past few years, and Garbajosa is easily the toughest dude we've had since the Oaktree. Chris Bosh is American and he shies away from conflict more than anyone on the team.

The styles are different, yes, but like Jeff said I think striking a balance with the two is the best way to maximize your success. Like the Spurs and the Lakers have done.
