(C is the baseline, you’re having an average year for your skills, that’s what you get)

Jose Calderon: A

I don’t know where they’d be without him, either.

Anthony Parker: C

Been okay, better lately but an average year so far.

Jamario Moon: B

Best story of the year. Maybe best story of ever around these parts.

Chris Bosh: A

You don’t read a whole lot of ‘Trade Bosh’ talk now, do you?

Andrea Bargnani: D

Some good games early, a disappearing act of late.

Juan Dixon: C

Asked to do something he’s not ready for. Is that his fault?

Rasho Nesterovic: C

He’s gonna be valuable around playoff time.

Carlos Delfino: B

Best addition of the off-season.

Jason Kapono: C

Shooting percentage down, but so is playing time.

Kris Humphries: C

Lots of flaws but energy and hustle count.

Joey Graham: C

Average year from average player.

Darrick Martin: C

He is what he is.

T.J. Ford: Incomplete

They miss him more than you think.

Jorge Garbajosa: Incomplete.

If he’s back this year, it’s a huge bonus.

Maceo Baston: Incomplete.

Unfair to mark a guy who never plays.

Sam Mitchell: B

Three games over .500 isn’t bad for all this team’s gone through.

I agree with him more or less, but again I say rasho deserves a better grade. And I would put Bosh a A- for those terrible games he had.

I used to not be able to stand Doug, but over the last year or so I've become a big fan of his writing.

Have to say I agree with all of his assessments except for Delfino. He's been way too inconsistent for my liking.
