Default Daily Raptor Dish - 29 Dec






The time is now for Wright


Quote:
Antoine Wright is like a Raptors Christmas present hung up at the border with improper postage.

The Raptors know they have something coming eventually, they just aren't sure when it's going to arrive.

When the Raps obtained him from the Dallas Mavericks this past off-season as part of the Shawn Marion sign and trade, the feeling was the Raptors had addressed some of their defensive shortcomings. Wright, after all, had been a shutdown defender for the Mavs, though, the Raptors haven't seen any signs of that yet.

A slew of injuries -- right knee, left ankle, right elbow, right ankle -- have kept him from practising for a good chunk of his Raptors tenure. Unable to show much in practice, court time has been hard to come by.

In 10 of the past 23 games, Wright hasn't made it on to the floor. Some of those DNP's were injury related, others simply were the case of a teammate doing more with the time given.

Bosh close to eclipsing Carter's scoring record


Quote:
Sometime later this week or early next, Chris Bosh will take his place in Raptors history.

That he stood just 73 points away from eclipsing Vince Carter as Toronto’s franchise scoring leader was news to him yesterday, though.

“How many points? Well I know now,” he said with a grin, after being apprised by a reporter of the upcoming milestone at practice.

“It’s pretty cool because there have been so many good players to come through here.”

Bosh has come a long way from the game, but the painfully skinny, kid from Dallas who arrived in Toronto in 2003 after being selected fourth overall in one of the strongest drafts in NBA history.

Though Carter scored his 9,420 points in 403 games as a Raptor and Bosh has tallied his 9,348 points in 471 games, Carter was a first-option, rookie-of-the year superstar from the get-go, while Bosh matured into his role after Carter was traded to New jersey 1 1/2 seasons into Bosh’s career. Now, Bosh is among the NBA’s leaders in points and rebounds per game, averaging career bests in both this season.





Raptorland a happy place these days


Quote:
"To be a good team," Bosh said, "you have to hold each other accountable and that means you have to come up to somebody and say, `You need to do something, or you need to rebound.' And if you don't like the guy, you're not going to pay attention to the message, you're going to pay attention to how it's delivered. But we were fine. It just takes time."

The cohesion, which has translated into four straight Raptor victories, hasn't been lost on coach Jay Triano, either. Instead of having to tread carefully around personalities and worry about who might take what criticism the wrong way, he finds these players amenable to being picked on.

"I think this group has been very, very good, win or lose, at taking criticism and trying to get better. It's a sign that they do want to get better," he said. They're not opposed to being called out in practice or being called out on video.
