If This Continues....

Well it looks like things are coming together, and we still see room for improvement. Our main guys seem to be playing well, and have definitely picked up on defense. Everyone seems comfortable with one another, and it's noticeable on the court. BC and I presume all of us want to get better, via trade, change in personnel, therapy. Personally, I like how we're playing as of late and would opt to keep our main guys, and yes even Calderon. The question is can we become a 46-50 win team with these guys?

Personally I think we should make subtle moves, with players off the bench. There is too much money being spent on players that don't play, banks, evans, rasho, o'bryant. That's thirteen million there. Possibly trade, evans and banks wright for maggette & cj watson.... (I know it's pretty risky, but who knows maybe Corey Maggette can revitalize his career like frye did with phoenix. Sounds better than Calderon for rip. I'd rather have an overpaid guy for 3 yrs rather than 4. Golden State might do it since they suck and have no cap space for the next three years.) Bottom line is that a lot of teams are struggling n will be going into seasons with 0 cap space over the next few years and can take advantage, and satisfy Bosh enough to stay.

My mistake prolly gonna part with Calderon to get this one, so moves wont be so subtle. Nonetheless should the team be left as is or should BC come up with something.

I think this team is definitely talented enough to win 50 games... this year will be tough because of the slow start, but mid 40's is very achieveable. There will always be enough poor teams to pick on for us to attain 50 wins with sufficient talent that has some burn together.

The concern I have is beating the really good teams. I think we are two stocked up at the 1 and 2 spot with not enough talent distribution. We're 1 heavy and 2 light. If we could turn say Calderon's bigger contract into a decent 2 and possibly unload a Weems type guy in the process I think that would help us face the really good teams.

After that it will depend on Bosh and then the rest of the players gellign and improving.

Don't get rid of Reggie, we haven't even seen him play in TO... Considering the only other big we really use is Amir at this point, our rebounding off the bench will obviously improve with Reggie.

Are you kidding? Corey Maggette? That guy is a black hole of offense and a locker room cancer. I want no part of him. ANd You think the W's are going to just throw in Randolph? That's crazy talk.

A Cancer?? where did u hear that. When you play for Nellie that's what's instructed for u. Maggette has no ego that will stop him from listening to our coach. He can't come here and act up, for all the years I've seen him i know he's no iverson. A player is player, they try to help their team win.... he'd be coming into a situation where there are other players with the same attitude. He's not a rebel that will go against the intentions of this organization... I know it's risky but if there's something better enlighten me

Players are starting to know their roles. Players look up to Bosh, but the true leader on this team is Jack. The only player who still tries to force his game his Antoine Wright. If we can get that type of defense from Bargnani, we have a chance to catch Atlanta.

+1

I still don't understand what is his role in this team. I can't see great D from him and I don't want to even talk about his game on the other side of the court.

Hope ur trying to saying GS wont do it. I only mentioned him because he has a lower credibility in the league than the likes of Martin, Hamilton, and Butler. When I look at the trade agian sounds like i'm reaching, but that besides the point. I just wanted to know whether u guys are content with the team as is. Or do we need trades (excluding bosh) to reach 50 wins.

just in case u were wondering maggette is avg, 18.6 on 53% in 29 mins the dude gets to the line. He seems more realistic than butler and hamilton.

Maggette. Has he been in the league ten years? It seems like a good ten years that someone wants to trade for him. At least it doesn't happen every other week anymore.
