Raptors Mark Jackson on Dominic McGuire

Quote:
Q: Dominic McGuire gave you a lot of things last year. He’s not back. What kind of loss is that and how do you go about replacing what he did?


JACKSON: He’s a big loss. He was a great guy, did a great job for me. I told my guys in the locker room–I don’t know, 50 times–that he was the poster child for what we preach from Day 1.

At the end of the day, you make decisions in this league and you move forward. We drafted Harrison Barnes, we re-signed Brandon Rush, both of those guys are small forwards, both of those guys are going to play a lot of minutes.

In fairness to Dom, I think last year we asked him to do a lot of things that you wouldn’t normally ask him to do if you were a good team. So I don’t know if that role would’ve been the same. And ultimately it comes down to money, too. We’ve gotten younger and we’ve made some additions and it’s a tough loss.

There will be times when we need a stop where we would love to have a guy that can guard every position–unless you’re facing a Dwight Howard or a superior center. I think we will have to find that defensive stopper within this group and then step up our games individually as support to the guy primarily defending the other team’s home run hitter

I've been a big supporter of McGuire for some time now. He fills the role James Johnson had here and from what I've seen of the kid, seems to listen a lot more.

Good point. Also with the history problems of Kleiza, Derozan defensive lapses, and getting Ross up to par with the NBA, its nice to have Mcguire available.

If the guy knows his role, I'll have no problems with DOM. Defensive specialists are always needed, especially with this team.

lowry/fields/mcguire/bargnani/valanciunas could be a heck of defensive special team by the end of the season. Switch to lowry/jose/demar/andrea/amir for the offensive sequence and it could yield some really good results in close games.
