Raptors Interesting Read on MWP and the Raptors

Quote:
He was in Surrey shooting some hoops at a local rec center, he has been spotted numerous times since Saturday just chilling in Surrey lol. Anyways I met him last Sunday and actually had a conversation with him, really cool guy in general, and he loves Canada. We started talking about the Raptors, said how Toronto is a top 5 city to visit on the road. Said when he was younger he wanted to play in Toronto, actually worked out with Toronto during the draft process, and they liked him but Toronto like alot of other teams thought he would not be an effective SF, because of his height, and teams actually thought he wasn't athletic, and quick enough to be a 2.

High praise for Bargnani, said teams actually game plan how to stop him, said he is one of the best scorers in the NBA. High praise for Dwyane Casey as well, called him one of the best coaches in the NBA, as well as one of the toughest. Loves James Johnson said he worked out with him a couple times, compared JJ to himself, just said he needs to get it. High praise for Derozan as well, said he has talked to Derozan on a couple occasions, and Derozan is always trying to recruit talent to Toronto lol

Overall he was just a cool guy, really different than the guy you see play on the basketball court. I was originally going to get a picture with him, but totally forgot, but I did take a picture of him shooting some hoops hahaha.

He's been there for like 2 weeks now... around the Vancouver / Surrey area seems like it.

He was on a CTV vancouver broadcast last week doing the weather.

He's a former St. John alumni so I always have a soft spot in my heart for him. That being said, I still think he's bit of a nutcase.

bargnani this year played well this season, he is hard to stop, not just the first 15 games, also before he got re-injured and was lost for the season he played well in his last 6 games,

when he came back from injury it took a while to get his game back, ive seen this several times with other players, chris Bosh after he got injured in toronto took 10 games to look like his allstar self, and it was back to back years that it happen,

its a normal thing, but when it was Bargnani everybody was dogging him not allowing him to get healthy just because the haters are out in full force when it comes to bargs

Comparing Bargs to Bosh is never a good thing.

One was a consistent force for Toronto (and an all-star) for 5+ seasons, putting up big numbers in both points and rebounds while the other has struggled to put in half a season of solid play.

When Bargs plays 70+ games at the level that he did for about a dozen or so this past season he'll stop getting hate.
