Default ESPN's Thorpe Basketball Chat

Here's some Raptor tidbits from David's ESPN chat this afternoon:

Pat (Toronto): Hi David, what would you suggest a struggling player like Andrea Bargnani do to get out of a funk on the court?

David Thorpe: (12:03 PM ET ) Rebound. Rebound. Race don't run. Rebound. Make easy plays with the ball. Rebound.
Steve Wood (Champaign): Raps won't deal Calderon - not even straight up for Josh Smith - seems like Smith with his shot-blocking and athelticism is exactly what the Raps are missing. Thoughts?

David Thorpe: (12:13 PM ET ) With a healthy TJ, maybe. Now, never.
Bob Detroit: David, risking a ban here but couldn't the Nets work some kind of trade with Toronto or a three way to deal Kidd, get Calderon and somebody else with the Raps filling a need? It seems to make sense to this wannabe GM.

David Thorpe: (12:11 PM ET ) There is no way the Raps deal Calderon.
Eli (Kingston): Worst shot selection in the NBA - present; Carlos Delfino. Past; Antoine Walker. Any rebuttle?

David Thorpe: (12:17 PM ET ) have you seen Jamaal Crawford play?

I have noticed that since Carlos has been given the ball handling duties more, his shooting percentage has plummetted. I'd like to give Martin the carrying responsibilities and give Carlos more changce to drive and receive passes when hes' set.

I cringe everytime I see D-Mart with the rock cause you know he's going to jack it up. C'mon BC, bring Andre Barrett in already!
