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

Default Hollinger: Last night was a taste of why Toronto could be so dangerous

So, is he implying that Andrea is the key to this team's success? :cheeky-smiley-013:

But it only works if Bargnani is knocking down shots, as well as rebounding and defending enough to justifying leaving him on the court for his offense.

Last night he did, and the results were spectacular. No, the Raps won't shoot that well every night, and yes, other teams might be quicker to adjust to this lineup by going small (Boston's normal response would have been to put in James Posey at the 4, but he wasn't available). But the win gave Toronto fans a little taste of what could make this team so dangerous down the road.

no kidding ... who'd have thunk it ... A young center (?) with the potential to be the next Dirk Nowitzki is the key to our future? Shocking ... I always thought Dereck Martin would be the key, I guess I was wrong ...

All kidding outside, lately Hollinger had some very nice articles about us, looks like he's finally starting to actually watch some of our games, not just talking through his calculator ...

He always talks through his calculator. He's still an idiot.
