Doug Smith's Raptor Report Card

Agree or disagree? Discuss.

I’ll put grades on but they will be based on a player’s ability, not against the rest of the league. A ‘C’ is an average year for that player. Let the arguments begin.

T.J. Ford

Guy missed 31 games and the best one he played was night he got hurt in Atlanta. Oh, what might have been.


Anthony Parker

Almost exactly the same averages (12.5-12.4, 4.1-3.9) as a year ago for Mr. Consistency. He brings same effort every night.


Jamario Moon

They asked an awful lot of a rookie and for the most part he delivered. Led the team in deflections, which is a stat the coaches love.


Chris Bosh

Rebounding numbers were down (8.7-10.7) but field goal percentage practically the same and here’s something: He was the third-best fourth-best three-point shooter on the team (40.0)


Andrea Bargnani

Was supposed to make his NBA chops as a shooter and then his shot left him in a woeful second second. Still, he is 22 and has lot of time to grow.


Rasho Nesterovic

No, I have no idea where they would have been without him in the second half of the season.


Jose Calderon

Made himself a lot of money, and likely earned himself next year’s starting assignment with a fine season. Needs to improve defensively.


Carlos Delfino

If Parker was Mr. Consistent, he was Mr. Inconsistent but when he was going good, he was all over the stat sheet. Tough off-season call.


Jason Kapono

Part him, part coaching, part scheme but he was a non-factor in the regular season. Playoffs provided hope.


Kris Humphries

Fell out of favour because he tried to do too much, as he always does. Also hurt by the emergence of Nesterovic.


Joey Graham

Guy’s had all the chances he’s going to get here. And has never, ever seized the moment.


Maceo Baston

Hardly an impact free agent signing.


Jorge Garbajosa

Oh, what might have been.


Primoz Brezec

Oh, what never will be.


Sam Mitchell

Did he have his best year? No, not by a long shot. Some of Bargnani’s failings are on him, as he admits, but he didn’t have a Celtic-like roster to work with.


Bryan Colangelo

Moon was a great find, Kapono wasn’t the greatest of acquisitions but when he went out to make trades, it’s not as if he had a wealth of riches to do deal.


So there you have it, a bunch of average guys who had average years. Anyone really surprised they finished 41-41?

Joey Graham is like a super, super hot chick who's really, really awful in the sack.
