Swift looks like Shaun White 'The Flying Tomato' and whats up with Hill, he looks like the 10 year old version of Marc Gasol

O'Neal should have a big game because Petro flat out sucks

No confidence in Bosh even though he should have a big game, because he's being guarded by a SF

Kapono should be reigning in 3's, no excuses

I hope the Raptors can beat the OK City Doritos

Have you seen how well Green has been playing as of late? If guys like Jared Dudley can school Bosh, then I wouldn't write off someone like Green just yet. He's a great player and a decent defender too.

He's not a good rebounded though, 5.5 rpg

Nowitzki scored 46 points on him recently

But yeah he is a good offensive player and he's only a rookie so I expect him to get better defensively.

Well, that is Dirk for ya. There aren't too many PF's in this league that shut him down.

Anyhow, Green's rebounds per game is an irrelevant stat considering our rebounding woes. Midgets could out rebound us right now.

Maybe I could join the team now. Im taller than a midget, 5'10'', and I could rebound well back in my Raptorball days.

Dr. J is a Senators fan, why?

You'll be sorry if you don't join the 'Club of Champions' circa 1967

You will go outside in June and read the headline

'Leafs 2009 NHL Champions'

Guaranteed Green outplays Bosh.

Bosh cannot play against smaller players because all he wants to do is shoot soft fadeaways and when he tries to drive, he will be met by someone quicker.
