Default Has JO even watched a Raptors Game before?

this made me laugh...

taken from Doug Smiths blog quoteing Jermaine O'neal on the Raptors during an interview yesterday...

Quote:
"You’re talking about a team that’s extremely athletic, extremely big at the wing positions, and they play defence.”
He was jokingly being sarcastic right?

convinced that Raptors fans are only happy when they're unhappy.

I think Jermaine's slightly delusional. And I mean that in the nicest way possible.

He's not totally wrong, I mean Jamario is freakishly athletic, AP is a pretty big 2, and we do play defence... not well at all, but we do play it... a bit...

The commitment to defense has been there. They've just needed someone like him to make it pay off more. The extremely athletic part is weird. There is some athleticism, but there is nothing extreme. Of course the guy he's seen up close, is pretty athletic and has used that against him extremely well.

I think he was telling it in his own perspective. I remember that one game with the Pacers where we shut down O'neal.

At least he was trying to be positive, i think all 3 points are incorrect, but can't hate the man for trying to be nice

Toronto gets a bad rap (no pun intended) regarding their D. It's not great, but they were 10th in points allowed per game and middle of the pack in opposition field goal percentage. It's not like the Raptors were getting sliced and diced night in and night out, their problem was that they couldn't rebound for their lives. Lots of easy baskets inside, zero toughness.
