Default Enough!!!!!!!!!!!!

With the Corey Magette talk.....

He is not that good,

Why is it Raptor fans cling on to one dude, and there are rumors of him comming ever year.

We need Nick Collison...or Dalembert..or Lebron/.

Magette would do better in the East because there aren't as many dominant big men to clog the middle but he isn't the answer.

Why does everybody neglect our problem of rebounding and defence?

Are team has a bunch of wimps on our team. LET'S GET TOUGH! No more half season pu$$y players and perimeter babies. Two best "record" teams in the league (Boston & Detroit) did it with defence and toughness not.

Eff Magette and all the other Clippers trash. If you want anything from the Clippers it's Brand or Kaman and nothing else.

Maggette and Livingston on the IR, and Thomas might as well be. Brilliant! Do it!

I'd have to agree.

Brand or Kamen.

I find it so amusing that most feel that adding Maggette is going to make us considerably better.

To acquire talent, you got to part with it. So unless we're packaging Jose, some fillers and draft picks we aren't acquiring an immediate all-star anytime soon. Maybe just an upgrade from Parker or Moon. And Ford definitely wouldn't get us anything ground breaking. But maybe Maggette though.

Forget Maggette, here’s two guys that fit the Raptors bill on both offense and defense: Atlanta’s Josh Childress who has as diverse a game as any SF and Shane Battier who’s a great one-on-one defender and can hit the three. He’s also a true professional and brings that lunch-pail mentality to every game - Sam Mitchell would love this guy. The chances of us signing a really good scoring three are slim, first of all they’re not that easy to come by or trade for and even when they are, you either end up paying too much or giving up too much. These are two players that can help improve this team and provide scoring, rebounding and defense all better than Carlos Delfino or Joey Graham, two of the three players we need to shed this summer. The other is Maceo Baston.

you know who would fit the bill perfectly?
Danny Granger

not only is he a great defender, he also can score, take it to the rack and is brimming with potential.
sigh, and we selected Joey Graham over him.... awesome!

I would take Magette anytime,though he is expensive.But we really need a player like him that can give us more scoring (20+) and some rebounding help(5-6 per game).

Dalembert would also be great but i don't see Phily giving him up.He doesn't score much (10 ppg) but would give us rebounding (10 rpg).

As for Lebron,he'll never play in Toronto.

I'd be happy if the Raps took Childress off of Atlanta's hands.

I'm not a big Childress fan. 30 Min/game = 11 PPG,5 RPG,1 APG.

Those must be his playoff numbers, but I don't really care about numbers. Not to mention that he plays behind Josh Smith, Marvin Williams and Joe Johnson.

The guy can guard three positions - very well I might add, he's long and athletic, he rebounds, he has handles, he can pass and he can take it to the rim. He has an ugly shot, but who cares. He still shoots about 55% from the floor.

I LOVE Childress' game. LOVE it. Don't know if we have the pieces though to acquire him. They already have their PG in Bibby, so there's no need for Ford.
