Raptors ESPN giving Ross, raptors some love

Quote:
Ross is beginning to find his catch-and-shoot stroke, and he's already one of the league's best dunkers. He's long-armed and hardworking, and should turn into a very good wing defender — especially since he's already shown a willingness to stick his nose in (and above) crowds for high-jumping rebounds. Rare is the player who can consistently turn in highlight-worthy boards. Toronto is downright exciting when they pair Ross with Kyle Lowry, whose penetration creates natural inside-out chances for Ross. The Ross-Lowry–Ed Davis–Amir Johnson quartet has only played 38 minutes together for the season, which seems inexplicable — and anti-fun.

Kyrie Irving, Manu Ginobili, and the most fun players in the NBA who won't be going to the All-Star Game - Grantland

Agreed.

he's not going to take demar's spot. until landry stops being afraid to shot, ross is going to continue coming off the bench. if anyone should worry, it'd be someone like AA.

Because Demar is bad.. nor is he exciting. He's boring and predictable, does the same thing every time he touches the ball.

in the half court what you're saying is very true. but a starting lineup or lowry, ross, demar, ed, amir would run almost every team out of the building. and demar would be exciting again.

will this bring us more wins? probably not. we'd still be a mediocre team, but at least we'd get out and entertain. which is all i can ask for THIS SEASON. a non playoff spot contending season.
