Default Doug Smith's Raptors Report Card

I have no quibbles with it, except that maybe Colangelo should get a C for doing next to nothing.

i'm beyond shocked as his grade for Jose, he's usually all up in his ass.

i think he gave him a better grade last year, anyone remember how Jose played last season...?

Jose, Andrea, Gray, JJ I thought were solid this year. Casey too.

Doing nothing might've been the smartest thing BC has done in awhile. No need to rock the boat the year before your blue chip prospect and a ton of cap space rolls along.

same roster performed worse last year but gets bad scores this year

Why?
Compared to Anthony Carter and Gary Forbes definitely a better fit at 3rd PG. Hell, I'd rather have him than Bayless at backup PG. His skillset is a perfect fit and he did what was asked of him

Exceeded expectations imo. Anyone think we'd be 15 or so in the league in overall defense, top ten in opponents shooting percentage and improve so much in defending the paint? I predicted 20 wins and we'll end with 23 when all is said and done so I can't see how anyone could have expected any better.

It's true that the effort on defense deserves a bump up in the letter grade for everyone.

But this was going to be the year that I gleefully counted Ed Davis double-doubles and he let me down.

Demar seemed to show that maybe he would be a great bench player rather than a starter.

Amir went through several slumps when Bargs went out.

So yes I expected more of them this year and around a C- seems fair to me. They have been playing better in the last third of the season, but if Demar and Ed start out slow again next year I'm going to pull my hair out.
