yes he will, he will be our starting PG, and we will get something really good for TJ because his value is getting higher because he is playing well.

Well he nevered played much. Its funny how this team always seems to make sure that they don't piss off TJ . Granted TJ did play well, but why is it when Jose plays well there is always mins for TJ. Let me guess TJ is a suck. Jose should go somewhere where a team will respect him. Picking a suck over a team guy. Bye bye Jose in the summer. He was caught doing his stretches late in the 1 quarter only to see that Mitch freezzes him out the rest of the quarter. Special treatment for TJ.

Exclamation

I don't know, I think Jose is running out of cheeks. Those comments of Tj in the second quarter I would like to replay them over and over to him, can you be any more selfish?, and if you guys for once step into Jose shoes, would you like to be treated like a wh..e?, don't you think that affect performance?,

Great game boys. Almost let out in the end but stayed on top.

Nice .... only caught a couple minutes of the game but from what I saw TJ looked awesome tonight and getting better and stronger with each game. Perfect timing too with playoffs right around the corner. Gooooo Raptors.

Nothing .... just the usual suspects and their tiresome schtik regarding Ford. Everywhere I've read tonight and the one quarter I watched, Ford looked and played awesome. Patient and under control, but Ford could score 30 points and have 30 assists but still could do nothing right through some people's eyes. Pretty pathetic if you ask me.

depends, do you like watching Jose suffer to keep Tj's ego happy?

Honestly, I don';t gve a shit anymore, its all business anyhow, but I think it's silly to defend a guy that can "only produce when he starts".

That kinda ego aint my bag.

Great he plays well.

It isn't the kind of mind I want to build around.

I was just wondering if he made another silly Jose remark?

Ego-shmego .... who gives a flying fuck. We're winning for christ sakes.

Personally, I could care less too SJ. I just want to see this team win and we are winning and yet people still aren't happy. It seems like many have forgotten about the rest of the team and just want to focus on the TJ/Jose dilemma or Ford's apparent ego. Whatever flows your boat I guess. I just don't care to understand why everyone's so hung up on Ford all the time when we could be commending and celebrate the positives instead of the negatives.

I'm with Dr. J, at least we won this one. As ugly as it was. Jose really did look awful tonight, I think he was tired. This was also the first game all month I loved Ford's game.

We won't win in Atlanta with that kind of effort though. But I think if our bench gets going (Jose will probably rebound), we can do better.

Anyways, let's talk about something we can all agree on. Bargnani = POS.

TJ was fantastic. IMO, that was his best game of the season. Best that i can remember at least.

Anthony Parker also impressed me. His second half defense was good. You could see he got REAL pissed at the officiating too, when some obvious calls didn't go his way. He played with some fire.

Rasho was pivotal as he has been of late.

Jose had an off night. It happens to the best of them. no reason to panic.

Bargnani.... fuck it. no comment.

Typical.

Ford was on fire in the first quarter...39 points for the team..some great penetration and awesome chemistry with Bosh and you think he should get pulled just to give Jose minutes? Hmmn...says here coaches job is to win games...the starting 5(minus Rasho in foul trouble) were smoking..can't mess with that on the road.

Anyways, enough about that. Awesome game by the starters and Hump. Everyone's aloud a crappy game...Jose this was yours. He'll bounce back..we'll need him to in Atlanta.

Swan I totally agree with you. Tj was outstanding. All I wanted to say is that Jose has made it easier for Mitch to give TJ more minutes. If Jose was starting and was having a strong game Mitch would still have taken him out. Mitch knows that Jose won't sulk, he also knows that TJ would cry. I think Jose and his good heart will eventually get burnt. It just seems being a nice guy just won't get you any respect. Hell TJ does not respect Jose as TJ continues to be Me J during his interviews. The more TJ talks the deeper he sticks it up Joses ass. I still remember when Jose played so strong in games only to sit out the entire 4th quarter just to give TJ minutes because we were winning. We just squeeked by the bobcats. This game was a win but nothing really to brag about. I thought the game where we smoked them 98-79 with Jose starting and no Bosh and tj was impressive.

Look i'm tired of getting into this with you but really if you believe anyone on the team is concerned about pissing off TJ and therefore they're playing him more I think you're really mistaken. If Sam Mitchell has shown us anything in his 4 years here is that there is no consistancy or predictability to his roster shufflings to be found. He has a responsibility to get the most out of his players and try to win games. Sometimes guys sit and sometimes they play. To try to suggest that Tj stayed in because it was TJ and when Jose is dominating he's pulled as a general rule is really a weak-routed statement. It may seem that way one game here and there but to make a general catagorical statement that Sam favours TJ based on that... well have at it, i wouldn't want to have to defend that position infront of a large audience of Raptor fans holding rotten fruit and vegetables i'll tell you that much

Your subtle way of complimenting Ford simply astounds me. "Outstanding job" and yet he's still considered a cry baby. I'm speechless and dumbfounded.

TJ played well. He made some "extra-passes" that he would normally have taken a shot in his old ways. I guess he's taking some lessons from Jose. Now if only Jose could take a page from TJ and drive to the hoop more just a bit more we'd be a force.

I think we should have clobbered Charlotte, but our defense is non-existent. No way we stand up to a winning team, in the playoffs.

Hopefully Jose is just in a funk, and has nothing to do with any unhappiness with his minutes or coaching direction. If he leaves TO, he should go to Phoenix and study under Nash, one of the PG's Jose models his game after.

If so, does this mean we can start the "Jose's a fuckin' crybaby" threads?

Doc why the change of heart. This board does very well because of all the Jose supporters. It seems that you must have bumped your head and now see tj stars in your head.
