ESPN's Thorpe Chat Wrap
 
Here's is David Thorpe's chat wrap this afternoon on ESPN. Only included the Raptor related stuff. :D

Quote:

Andrea B, Toronto: Please tell me what is happening to my game?

David Thorpe: (12:01 PM ET ) I'd start with heart, mix in some toughness, and them see where you are at.
Quote:

Steven (Toronto): Ranking the 03' draft into their 5th year who do you put after LeBron and Wade. Bosh or Melo?

David Thorpe: (12:08 PM ET ) Lean to Bosh.
Quote:

James (NY): Do you aree with Hollinger that Calderon deserves an All Star spot this year?

David Thorpe: (12:24 PM ET ) Yes.
Quote:

D Sanchez, Scenic Broomfield, CO: Bosh over Melo? Try thinking before typing sometime. One begins to wonder about the state of your consciousness.

David Thorpe: (12:34 PM ET ) It's incredibly close. But yes.
Quote:

Allen, Boston: Childress will end on Toronto they really need a SF. JC, Lue x AParker, KHumpries??

David Thorpe: (12:41 PM ET ) Raps need a tough guy, not another lean athlete.

Pretty much ... he doesn't use stats exclusively to prove his points like Hollinger does though. ;)

Well, its funny ESPN has two important guys saying Calde should be an allstar and most raptors fans with all their jose love dont think he should.

Acie 01-16-2008 03:41 PM

I agree...we need a tough guy.

wouldn't put much trust in what thorpe has to say - usually he puts no thought in his answers and he never contradicts hollinger ... He is a raptors fan though (especially bosh, but not only him). He's also Kevin Martin's coach, and you have to give him a lot credit for making martin the player he is now.

Really? I didn't realize that. Thanks milk ... kind of cool to know this. I thought Thorpe was strictly a "beat writer" and then I clicked on the link that I provided you guys with earlier and read his entire profile where it says he does player development programs. :o
