Barbosa doesn't play within the flow of the offense. His game is driving into 3-4 defenders and getting a miraculous layup.

yet he miraculously is a great finisher on those layups? C'mon now. He rarely gets blocked, he attacks the D, doesn't need plays run for him and he's basically instant offence. All teams need something of the sort.

Typical in Toronto sports fandom. Put down the skilled guy and praise players like Reggie Evans. Don't get me wrong, i like Reggie Evans and all, but that type of player usually gets all the attention in this city no matter the sport, while skilled players are often deemed pussies, chuckers etc....

It's absolutely true. I can appreciate effort, but I can also appreciate skill. It doesn't have to be about liking one or the other.

I can't ignore the frustration because his skill is totally evident. Players with a lot less skill and size seem to fight so much harder. What would take him to all star staus, AND lift his team is not about his skill. And so you keep waiting for that fire, but it is rarely forthcoming.

e.g. I know Reggie CAN'T put up 30 points, but if I knew he had the tools to be a good shooter, but would only shoot 5 times a game, hells yeah I'd be focused on it and simmering about it.

Bayless's chucking seriously pisses me off. Hopefully he improved.

It's still Vince Carter...even though he's not here. That hate takes a long time to ebb away.

its not even that. as fans that support this team, is it wrong or unreasonable for us to hate on him for not giving a damn, not trying, not being PROFESSIONAL?
