Exclamation No more jump shots!

I've had enough with guys like Bosh and Bargnani thinking they can shoot the ball. It' not there job. as the 4 or 5 they should be driving the lane much, much more. Who cares if Superman's going to swat your layup? Eventually they'll start to go into him using their bodies and get the foul. Basketball is a very simple game, let the shooters shoot and let the post players....uhhhhhhh play the post?

Stupid Bargnani too, ugh. You're 7'0...drive the freaking lane! and if you're 7'0 and cant dunk, you're pretty much useless (you dont even have to jump!!!)

/rant.

I might get banned for this (I really hope not), but this needs to be said.

No worries man .... you have to do something pretty significant to get banned from here, so express away with your opinions.

I agree with what your saying too. But, because of the lack of respect that the Magic are giving Bosh for his outside jumper, until he struggles with it he must continue to take that shot. But yes, I would definitely like to see them both take it to hoop hard and hopefully draw fouls especially on Howard. If D12 gets into foul trouble the greater chance we have to exploit the Magic in the paint/post because SVG will be forced to take him out.

good, I got banned at raptorschat or whatever for vocing my opinion (oh noez!11!)

I'm just really frustrated with what's going on right now, Basketball is a very simple game but it's hard to get better with a coach who admits he doesnt listen to criticism (eitther good or bad)

Both should take it more the basket thats obvious, but theres nothing more dangerous than a big that can also shoot. They just need to be smarter and chose what they have to do in each play. At least Bosh is hitting those shots, Bargs just cant do anything anymore lol.

But the whole team needs to take it more to the basket, not only the bigs. Moon and delfino specially.

Yeah, I'm on the fence with alot of things regarding this team this season. From coaching to the actual roster itself. I just think we aren't as good as most seem to think we are.

Expectations were met for me when the Raps made the playoffs. Anything more and we could be considered spoiled.

he is? news to me. I mean he hits a few of them, Bargnani too but for chrissakes, they must be scared of getting hurt or something. I say go in there, head down and just plow trough D12 or whoever else.

The problem with what you're suggesting is that if Bosh and Bargnani stop shooting, the opposition would have no reason to give them any room in the lane at all. Right now they have to respect those guys outside shooting which gives them room to drive.

Now i agree sometimes both players rely too much on the shot and dont' drive enough but you can't always do the same thing..not in this league.

if he can dunk why doesn't he do it more often? once a game is not nearly enough. As I said before, if you're 7'0 and can't dunk, you're useless.

what about sending these guys to the D league for a while? isnt that what it's for? Obviously that's a solution for next season but I'm just throwing it out there.

I dunno DMB and Welcome....(Humble Monkey is one of my favorite songs), I think the biggest test for Bargs will be to figure out what, where, and who he is, I think next year will be his test...I think he was a victim of expectations this year and coachs trying to make him something he isnt ready to be.

Do you think the D league would be a good idea? I say send down him and Joey and others. Why not, they're taking up valuble bench room.

Sending Bargs down to the D league would be a critical error, not just for his confidence, but for BC's rep and team viability when attracting draft pics....Joey....well Hoey can go...I just wouldnt want to be the one to tell him.

I say dish Joey, and Baston and send Humpy, Primo and Bargnani down to the D-league. As for confidence...who cares, he's in the NBA, it's literally in his job discription to do the best he can, if he's not, we send him down, even just for a few weeks. Yea, it's harsh. but he needs to improve and he aint doing that here.
