-Very happy about JO trade. Thinks he brings defense presence and a low post scorer.

-JO will make teams afraid of us.

-Jamario doesn't care what he has to do, just wants to win.

-Smiled and said "Yes" when he heard about the JO trade.

-Didn't think too much about the PG dilemma, trade was best for both sides.

-Thinks Jose should have been an All Star.

-Looks at us, with the addition of JO as one of the elite teams in the East.

Thinks we're 2nd best in the east only to Boston.

-Thinks we're capable of being a running team, and a half-court team, depending on which team they play.

-Been pumping weights, which is all Smitch wanted him to do in the offseason.

Moon just needs to develop his ball handling and a bit on the driving, but just really needs to be the players who takes it to the rim every time or most times, he's insanely athletic and is gifted in that area.

I'm also glad to hear that he's adding on weight.

The weight should help, and i agree if he uses his athleticism, with JO and Bosh demanding doubles teams will sag off of Moon cause his shooting isn't strong, he needs to dribble penetrate and get to the whole, or drive and kick to open up Parker/Jose/Kapono

2nd best?

I know he's supposed to say shit like that but come on. I don't see the Raptors being any better than 4th.
