Default Doug Smith: How 'bout them changes?

Doug's take on the bold moves today. As some of you alluded in the original thread of the news, for the ones that want to see Ford gone this summer they should actual embrace this decision on moving TJ back into the starting lineup instead of frowning upon it. Putting TJ back in the starting lineup just makes Ford more valuable assuming that he regains his form prior to the "Horford" accident. So, as much as it irks you to know that he got his job back, think of it as showcasing Ford for potential new suitors this summer.

I still now Colangelo is going to re-sign Calderon and because Calderon is really okay with this move, I don't see how he'd feel it a slight that would drive him away.

And, maybe -- MAYBE -- this will enhance T.J.'s value on the trade market if Colangelo's thinking about packaging him and someone else for the wing they so desperately need.

I still think, if he comes back with the right frame of mind in October, that Ford would be an excellent backup, able to change the tempo of the game. He hasn't shown it in the last few weeks, though, which is why this change had to be made now.

My thinking exactly... they have better chance of moving TJ if he is a starter...

...or as we saw tonight, he might just return to the form that helped us win 47 games last year We saw tonight, that Forderon has one hope of working and that's in tonight's order...whether BC decides to go with it or not might depend on how far we go in the playoffs, but at least if they both play like they did(both were sharper than in recent games) we'll have a chance to close out the season strong and at least challenge for 2nd round.

are you fucking kidding me????

good grief.

Tj for didnt win that game, a fired up team won it.

Fired up because they made the little prick happy and he didnt mope of hog the ball(trust me, he made a mental note to play nice today).

Colangelo owes Jose a blow job. Seriously. He solved the problem nonme of thm could to appease the so called starter. I feel for Tj, and his situation, and im sure he'll be ok, but I'd prefer the whole "Fords value rising, him gettingt traded for a good 2 coming back" scenario.

If you're talking to me...i never said TJ won us the game.

TJ played last night like he did last year... the right way.

You pray for whatever scenario you wish..i'm going to enjoy our team winning games with its best lineup combination in effect.

i agree with SJ (re: Calderon deserving credit for helping "fix" things).

at the same time, i too will be enjoying an improved raptor team now with the revamped lineup.

I got both of your backs fellas.
