Hollinger puts together a team of guys that have made a quiet impact to their respective squads and guess who makes it from the Raptors? Yup, "My Humps".

Additionally, he's the same age as Bargnani, so it's not like they're mortgaging the future with such a move. Unlike his teammate, Humphries has taken another big step forward this season, registering 16.9 points and 11.5 boards per 40 minutes and making Bryan Colangelo's decision to sign him to a low-cost extension before the season look like a master stroke.

Or rather, a second master stroke. The original master stroke was trading for him in the first place, in return for epic lottery bust Rafael Araujo (Toronto Star writer Doug Smith since has dubbed Humphries "Not-Hoffa-Bad").

Sure, Humphries has his weaknesses: He's still way too shot-happy, he fouls a lot and his D can be sloppy at times. But if my alternatives are Bargnani and Rasho Nesterovic, this guy is the clear winner. That's why I suspect that by playoff time he'll have a much bigger role than his current 14.6 minutes per game.

Agreed...he totally lost me there....even after the dismissal of Bargnani I continued to read but putting Hump(no offense i like the kid) behind Rasho is ignorant.

ya... no kidding. sometimes i wonder about these writers..

Definately agree about David West. Dude hardly ever gets mentioned anywhere.

I'd say one Raptor who i always thought was somewhat of a sleeper, but is handilly a big time contributor is Anthony Parker. I don't think he gets enough credit league wide.

Honestly, all the boards need to stop posting his garbage. He posted his playoff odds today and they had SA at like 2.3 and NO at 17%(and I love the Hornets, but comeon). His formula is complete BS and he should have been fired by now.
