Default Daily Raptor Dish - 14.01.10







What point guard controversy?



Quote:
“Jay Triano’s call, always,” Calderon said. “He’s the coach. It’s not about minutes or starting. We just have to win. If he decides to put me in, then I’ll be happy to help the team at the beginning, but it doesn’t matter. Whatever he decides is good with me.”
That was Calderon’s position when the same question was raised with T.J. Ford two years ago and as far as he’s concerned nothing has changed. Calderon has always been team first, individual second.
Moments later, Jack was asked how he would react if tomorrow night in New York Jay Triano suddenly decided to run Calderon out with the starting unit and have Jack come on in relief.
“I’m used to it,” Jack said. “If it happens, it happens. It’s sure not going to change the mentality I have had over the past 15 years or so. I’m still going to be aggressive. I’m still going to come in and be the energy guy.”






Raptor duo saying all the right things


Quote:

It has been common practice that Calderon and Jack have been, and will continue to be, on the floor down the stretch in tight games.
And Triano said Tuesday they will be joined by Hedo Turkoglu in some kind of three-headed point guard monster the coach likes to unleash.
"I like having three ball-handlers and they can all shoot the ball as well," Triano said of his finishing group that also includes Chris Bosh and Andrea Bargnani.
"I don't mind that. I don't think it's something we want to do on a steady basis throughout most of a game, but to finish games I want guys on the floor who can make free throws when we have a lead and who can make plays for each other and who can make shots."

Ready for another busy stretch?
A check of the trusty old schedule shows that after this three-day break between games, they’ll come fast and furious. Nine in 14 days starting Friday in New York.
Sweet.
Lots of games to dissect and the emotional ups and downs a fella experiences over a nine-game stretch are hugely entertaining.
Like this is.








Raptors approach fork in the road


Quote:
One month and counting.
The NBA trade deadline is Feb. 18, and already the future of all-star forward Chris Bosh and the Toronto Raptors is being debated, rumoured and speculated on. But not by anyone who might actually know.
Raptors president Bryan Colangelo curtly brushed aside any suggestion that there was substance to reports Bosh might be on his way to Houston or maybe Los Angeles or maybe Denver.
And Bosh, himself, has played the whole thing low-key; saying all the right things about how much he loves the city of Toronto, without actually committing himself.
It wall hit overdrive tomorrow, when the Raptors play the New York Knicks, an organization that will have spent two wasted seasons getting its finances in order hoping to lure one or even two of the 2010 free-agent class – of which Bosh is a well-respected supporting act to headliners LeBron James and Dwayne Wade.
How it will all shake out remains a mystery and anyone who pretends otherwise is doing just that. Potential trade rumours will get floated; some will sound plausible. It’s not rocket science.
What it really comes down to is philosophy.
As in: What kind of organization does Raptors owner Maple Leaf Sports and Entertainment Ltd. want to be?







Raptors quick to downplay starter's angst


Quote:
"I haven't thought about [tomorrow] yet," Triano said, referring to the Raptors' upcoming game against New York.
He did elaborate on what would make him opt for a change: "Just probably the chemistry not being there. But we played pretty [well] in the first half of the Indiana game. We've been playing pretty good basketball, so I don't think there's any reason to shuffle the deck right now."
The question, though, becomes whether both players' talents are being maximized in their current roles. In the four games since Calderon returned, Jack is averaging 11.3 points and 5.0 assists per game playing 30-plus minutes. Calderon is averaging 9.0 points and 5.0 assists per game in more than 24 minutes of action.
So far, the status quo has been fine, if not a brilliant success. A 2-2 record, including an epic collapse Monday in Indiana, keeps the question relevant, despite Triano's insistence a lineup change is not imminent.



Raptors not simply forgetting about Indiana debacle


Quote:

When teams suffer a bad loss, the mantra is often just to forget about it. Pretend it did not happen. Move on. However, Jay Triano did not let the Raptors slide that easily on Wednesday.

The Raptors blew a 23-point lead on Monday, losing to the Indiana Pacers, and Triano hammered home the error of their ways in the team's first practice since the meltdown.

"Coach showed us about four clips when we took shots with about 18 seconds on the shot clock," Chris Bosh said.

"We were up big and we stopped doing the things that got us the lead. I think we need to concentrate and focus more on the things that got us the lead instead of coming down and taking quick shots just because we're up 22. Against a high-octane offence like Indiana, they don't defend well, but they score a lot of points or are at home. You have to assume they're going to make a run."

Here you go.

No nudity, but I don't if you necessarily want to check it out at work.

I like her hair.

But as much as I'm a boob fan, when they're the size of my damn head it's too much. For me.

I know you guys want em bigger than your cars.

I don't really care about boob size...in fact I prefer smaller, perkier ones, but big ones are fun once in a while too.

Makes sense!

I guess it's like how some girls prefer smaller male appendages.

Some do. Really. I promise.

Not particularly, but it certainly wouldn't stop me from dating her.
