Default ESPN's Thorpe Chat Wrap

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

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.

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.
