Default Daily Raptor Dish - 13.03.2012


Good morning! You've come to the place where you can get your links in non-sausage form, and dish out all the meat yourself in the thread below. Go to it.



SUN: Make or break time for Bayless

NP: T.J. Ford’s career was both defiant and unwise

ESPN: Power Rankings

Quote:
28
Toronto 13-28
Last Week: 27 Spaniards can exhale ... or at least stop throwing things. The Raps are optimistic that the ankle Calderon sprained one night after Rubio's season- and Olympics-ending knee injury isn't as bad as first feared. Spain needs Calderon and Juan Carlos Navarro to have any shot at toppling a stacked Team USA.

jose manuel Calderon ‏ @josemcalderon8Sad to hear about my teammate TJ Ford. Great memories, great times with him in @Raptors uniform.Best wishes for him and his family

Is there a reason why RF Raptors chick is always hotter than SSG?

Hahaha, YES - just about anyone can be a Sunshine Girl. Anyone. They post regular women.

The RF chicks are the ones we pick to post on here because we dig 'em.

(To be fair, I should also point out that the SSGs are un-photoshopped, unedited, and not as professionally done. The RF chicks are pretty fake... but still hot.)

What Cuda said... but also... the RF girls are actually shot by PROFESSIONAL photographers... while the SSGs are probably having their pics taken with a disposable camera by some perv in his mom's basement.

That's my fault. She HAD three Big Macs but I stole 'em and ate them.

SUN: Make or break time for Bayless

Quote:
With Andrea Bargnani on the sidelines for 26 of 28 games, the Raptors went back to school offensively and eventually did figure out a way to score without their biggest offensive threat.

With Jose Calderon out for the next handful of games with a sprained ankle, scoring is once again going to take a hit.

Ironically the man who replaces Calderon, his backup Jerryd Bayless, is probably a better pure scorer than Calderon himself.

Part of the reason for that is Calderon’s point guard mindset is such that if there’s a chance to get a teammate a shot or take one himself, he will almost always make the pass to a teammate. Coaches from Sam Mitchell through Jay Triano and now Dwane Casey have repeatedly asked Calderon to take those open shots when they present themselves only to see Calderon find an open teammate and pass off.

It’s how he was taught to play the point guard position and only in the most dire situations will he ever revert to becoming anything close to a volume shooter.

Bayless, on the other hand is a guy who looks for his own shot first, although he admitted his primary goal this year has been to become a more well-rounded point guard and perhaps quiet some of his critics who say he can only create for himself.

What is going to be most interesting to watch over the next few games is how this team responds to a point guard who is trying to become more like Calderon while not turning his back on his own gift for scoring.
NP: T.J. Ford’s career was both defiant and unwise


Quote:
Ford played his entire career with the knowledge that he had spinal stenosis, an abnormal narrowing of the spinal canal. He missed the entirety of his second NBA year as a Milwaukee Buck because of a contusion of the spinal cord. His second year in Toronto was cut to 51 games because of the injury suffered in Atlanta. Eventually, the Raptors traded him to Indiana for Jermaine O’Neal, having to side with the quiet reliability of Jose Calderon over the uncertainty, but occasional spectacular play, Ford provided.

As a basketball player, Ford was fascinating. At full pace, he was not quite as fast as Derrick Rose, but he was close. As talented as he was, he was equally defiant. He had trouble adjusting to coming off of the bench when he came back from the injury in Toronto, and was eventually re-instituted as the starter late in the year, even as Calderon was having the superior season.

In a way, that makes a lot of sense. Ford had a stubborn belief in his own skills, which is part of what makes any point guard so good. Ford took it to another level, and it was apparent each time the player generously listed as 6-feet went into the forest of the NBA paint.

“I played the last five years with doctor’s orders not to play,” Ford told Jeff McDonald of the San Antonio Express-News on Monday morning. “I still defeated the odds with this condition.

“I avoided doctors orders for years, and dodged a lot of bullets. I thought I needed to get out while I still had a chance.”
