All I was saying is that if u forget someone or not mentioning him as someone who likes the team from the young players to me it MAY say something.
Especially with the fact that he didn't wanna come to Toronto and BC knew that before drafting him, according to online sources. I hope I am wrong, and he will be a long term in T.O but I doubt so. He was assessed briefly by the Raps prior to the NBA draft with the reason being; "schedule conflict".
Being evaluated by teams is like a job interview, if you don't show up it means the job isn't that importing to you, if the reason being the employer (the Raps) it tells you something abt his intentions. again, I hope I am wrong, but if he asks for a trade I won't be shocked.

Yep. They are gone because Jay omitted them while rambling off the top of his during a candid interview. Very indiscreet, just like he hints at being folicly challenged.

i'm of thge mind that triano should be fired

its weird i watch this miami vs boston series, i never seen Bosh anchor a defense like that, he was telling people where to go and they were listening when Bosh did that in toronto no one listened so i'm think coach spoelstra has something to do with that

i would say Bosh had a great series defensively,

its kind of funny how they had haslem telling CB what to do in the beginning of the season when the showd haslem screaming at Bosh about something, meanwhile we've seen Raptors destroy miami in previous seasons with Bosh and Bargs destroying haslem

No one's opinion on this matter is any more valid than another. It's just that...opinion. You are not a moron nor a conspiracy theorist to think that once a guy's stock rises, he might leave. If anything, you should be able to learn by now that it is always a possibility. If Toronto was known as an NBA destination instead of a nice place to visit then fine, but it's not.

And yes, time will tell because we don't need to learn the same lesson a million times. If it gets close to re-up time and the humming and haw-ing starts, trade that ass.

And here's some more opinion....you guys could be right about Davis' dad not really disliking Ed coming here. Maybe it's just his personality. I don't have kids myelf, but if I did and he was drafted to the NBA, it would supposedly be a big day when you should be proud. Beaming.

I would not publicly show any disdain for the team that drafted him and I would not publicly or privately show disappointment on his big day.

His dad looked like Ed was just sentenced to prison.



Welcome to Toronto, bitch! Ha-haaaaa!

It's funny 6 months ago i was saying Ed Davis didn't want to be here and he'd bolt the first chance he got, i was told i was crazy. But over the last couple months of the season he looked to be pretty happy here with these teammates. Is he here long term, i still have my doubts, call it a Toronto fan leery of a player sticking around....but if we can start winning in the next couple years who knows.

Not at all. I came across this vid and based on what I read here and there online from different sources. It's a fact he didn't want to be evaluated and practice for the Raps before the draft, simple as that.
He was drafted by the Raps because he was the best player available.
I read in a few places that his knees are a question mark. His father was an NBA player too and had bad knees too, and if you know a bit of history, big players after knee injuries can go only downhill i.e JO, Greg Oden, and even Brandon Roy may not be the same player.

End of story.

He didn't workout for Toronto because he was advised not to because it was believed he wouldn't get past #7, and it wasn't just Toronto. In fact he did workout for Toronto, not sure where it was (Chicago i believe?) but it was an open workout session with several scouts in attendance from various teams. At that point BC told him that if he dropped he'd take him. After that, why workout IN toronto?

oh is a FACT is it? since when was reading posts in a basketball forum become fact? you didn't get it from offical reports, or newspapers, or hear him personally say it. but because some guys here at raptorsforum were discussing about it so its a fact now. hmmmm.....that sounds more like an opinion, but if u say so....

and lol what are we even talking about here? i thought this was about ed davis not wanting to be in toronto and that he will leave the first chance he gets so we should trade him. why are u bringing up his knees?

anyways....you can speculate and connect the dots all you want. but i'm calling BS

When you are not a top 3 or even top 5, as a basketball player you better work your ass off to show the teams you are damn worth it. Look how many great players don't make it from the NCAA to the NBA, not because they are not good enough, just because they didn't get an oppotunity. If you have a chance to show what you got, you better make good use of it.

Here are the facts and the opinions.
My thread started as a question, get it? (opinion).
Ed Davis didn't want to be worked out for the Raps (fact)
He has issues with his knees. (fact)
BC didn't pick Brandon Roy, when we had the #1 pick because he said his knees are bad, and he was damn right. (fact)
IF BC will be back, and IF Ed Davis is not too excited to be a Raptor (which we don't know) I don't see why both parties will try to work it out.
Just my 2 cents.

He was considered a top 5-7 pick not that long before the draft. The only reason he dropped was because he had a wrist injury in the latter part of his last season in college. And even then there was thought he'd still be gone by #7.

I also remember BC saying that the Raptors never even invited Davis to workout for the club because the Raptors' brainstrust thought Davis would be taken in the top-5. But when he fell to #13, they had no choice but to take him. He was the BPA.

Davis was disappointed on draft day, but I don't think it's because he was selected by the Raptors. Rather, he likely was upset by the FACT that he dropped out of the top-5 and the top-10. There were high expectations of him going much earlier. If you were told you were going to be a top-5 pick and then slid almost out of the lottery, I think most of us would be a bit depressed.

And if I recall correctly, Davis' father had a lot of good things to say about Toronto after the pick was made.

Anyway, Tommy, you're making something out of nothing. Davis is under the Raptors' control for at least another 3 seasons. He seems content playing in Toronto and wants to improve. He's been a professional throughout his rookie season, and it genuinely seems to enjoy playing with the other young players on the roster.

I could find out from him but then it might come back how I found out and our mutual friend would not be happy haha

If Ed wants to be here, great, if not he is a great piece to trade.

Personally, I don't expect him to love it here yet. He's spent one season here and has been uprooted from "home".

He could hate Toronto for all I care as long as he plays well and when it's time to re-up he likes it here then!

I don't he's had issues with his knees though. His issues with his knees only occurred because of a meaningless charity event back in September (I believe).

In college, it was a broken wrist or something like that which hindered him. But prior to that he was considered as high as a no. 1 pick in some mocks but because of his injury, he didn't play, hence his stock fell and why so many draft 'experts' saw this as a steal.

That's why he didn't work out for the bottom teams. He thought he'd be going top 5. Alot of prospects do that.
