Nice ... I'm liking the sound of that.

Well, I don't know about that quite yet. Although we definetly improved on last year's roster a little. With the absence of Parker and possibly delfino, we need to get one or more good perimeter players. I'm definetly ecxited at the idea of Bosh and O'neil in the middle though... SCARYYY.

won't be official until the 9th, but could expand in that time. The pieces involved are Baston, ford, rasho & 17 for JO, more teams could get involved so stay tuned

Nope ... Physicals are still pending I believe and it won't be official until the earliest July 9th. The deal can't finalized till then when Ford's base-year compensation tag comes off the books.

Where's the Big Bargs picture? No one told you to change it!
I wonder what we'd be when we get our 20PPG swingman..

Larry Bird and Brian Colangelo are both highly respected executives. They're not going to tarnish that by going back on their word. Not to mention I don't think either team will find a better deal.

TJ won't be the hold up because doctors have said many times that he is no worse for wear than when he got here.

I don't know if we're top three, but we definately look top 5. Top 3 is a very reasonable goal though.

Yes... it is a very good day to be a raptor fan.

We are very weak at the wing right now, even assuming that Parker stays. Graham is a write-off, Delfino is highly questionable to return and Moon-Kapono-Parker 2-3 rotation doesn't inspire me one bit. We also need to get a capable backup PG for 12-15 minutes of every game.

Right now I think Boston will be #1, and if Detroit blows it up (and every indication says they will), we will be in a 2-4 buttsex with Orlando and Cleveland... we might outflank Cleveland regular-season wise, actually. Which is fine by me.

I think we're in the top 4 mix with Detroit,Cleveland,Orlando and depending on what other pieces BC brings in we could be #3!

jeff van cunty is an idiot and the WORST color man maybe EVER!!! We may or may not be that high up... we won't be better than the wizards if they're healthy and if you think the cavs will stand still, you're mistaken. A lot is going to be determined by this summer and what ELSE BC can do... but a great start nonetheless!

Huh ... I guess I'm in the minority then. I actually like JVG and thinks he's pretty witty with his colour commentary during games.

Looking forward to him eventually coaching the Raptors at some point next season too.
