Jack Armstrong: Raptors have the best PG rotation in the NBA
 
Pretty good interview from Jack, also said that Ed Davis looks really good.

TSN PodcastCentre

* Davis looks good, confident, stronger
* Ross is really a great shooter, is coachable, has a chance to be a real good player
* Schedule early in the season is concerning with a team trying to win more
* Valanciunas and Bargnani should have a good relationship, on floor chemistry one plays at the rim the other doesn't
* Valanciunas has a great work ethic, great kid, has a motor, coachable, high compete level
* Lowry/Calderon/Lucas best 3 man PG rotation in the league (going minute by minute)
* Jose seems to have good interaction with Lowry/Lucas, all are being very professonal
* They have more talent on offense and are looking to push the ball, off def rebounds

ive been saying that, that the raps have the best pg rotation for 48 min. hopefully if we are doing good, we keep jose and really try to make a push for the playoffs

Whoa... I just realized... How the hell does our 1st rounder to Houston work in regards to the old rule of not being allowed to trade your 1st rounder in consecutive seasons? We have no clue when Houston will be getting theirs?

Sorry to be tangential but I was thinking of Jose trades and that idea cropped up.

Thats how it works. We can't give our 1st rounders away until the one to Houston is done

With the addendum that we can if we receive another 1st rounder from another team to ensure we have one that year. So if we pick up a 30th pick like we did from Miami a while back we can trade a pick. Or we can make a deal where we swap picks anytime.

Best pg rotation in the nba...let them play a few games first.

What happened to Jack - I used to agree with every word that came out of his mouth - now he just annoys me.

Yeah, him saying we have one of the best depth at the PG position in the NBA really chaps my ass. :cwm34:

60 year old hard core student of the game...NCAA Div 1 coach...guy just pisses me off.

:P

I kid Bjjs. But really, if you look at it, Toronto does have a pretty good PG set up, fantastic.

Ya, who the fuck wants that right ?

Good news from Jack :yeah:

It's a boring comment expected from RealGM bloggers or the Bleacher Report...Lowderon might turn out to be the best pg combo in the NBA this year, but neither of those guys are good enough to be given any crown without even playing a pre-season game.


Something happened to Jack a few years ago - he isn't the same anymore.

Could be. But I didn't see it happen, and it appears no one else did. Perhaps cynicism just hit you? Raptors fandom can do that.

bjjs 10-07-2012 08:01 PM

That's possible

I have to agree with him, at least on paper our PG rotation is amazing

Admiral 10-08-2012 01:00 AM

i can agree with this
but in the end a superstar PG for like 35-40 minutes a night with an average PG for the rest of the 10-12 minutes a game might be more worthwhile than our trio
our trio does give us more peace of mind since we can be confident in all 3
but its like having a bunch of good guys instead of 1 awesome guys, you can only play so many guys at once

wait, how about a lottery protected pick in either 2013 or 2014, so if we end up in the lottery it goes to houston, and then the other team can get it another year, or if we make the playoffs, the other team gets it, because houston can only get a lottery pick
