We're not going to the playoffs, so, for the love of god, BENCH ALAN ANDERSON and free ROSS!

I'm starting to appreciate Anderson's willingness to play tough defense. I think all of our wings could stand to learn something from him.

that is a concern going forward. Casey needs the offseason to manage the offense better. I wish we didn't have to rely so heavily on AA to be our defensive wing.... our bigger names need to be held more accountable, but Gay has been dealing with a sore back, is new, so he deserves a bit of slack in that regard.... but next season, our wings better learn to get up in a players grill.

If he's here next season he better not be our first wing off the bench or i'm afraid i'll be in need of a new TV.


10th man at best or we'll suck donkey balls again.

Hoping that ross can solidify that 6th man spot by next season

Casey doesn't need to do anything this offseason, he needs to be gone till then!!!
Anderson sometimes/always plays ~30minutes, but when Gay can't start somehow minutless Ross takes the starting position, but not AA? He's no Manu, dont treat him like Manu

Ross needs to earn his playing time not have it handed to him. No better way to make him think he doesn't have to earn anything than by just handing a kid things.

Toronto is not the place to teach youngsters how minutes are earned. Most likely if DC continues to ignore Ross he won't teach him anything except for that 33 minutes and 0 rebounds from PF earns him a starting position!!! A.K.A. play as bad as you can, get italian citizenship and you have a guaranteed banner @ ACC ceiling

It's also arguable whether AA earned minutes either

Another good reason to bench AA is to try and decrease his market value. Even if it just marginally drops a bit. Will make it a bit easier and cheaper to re-sign him if needed as a 9th 10th guy off the bench.

No it isn't. Especially compared to Ross.

Yes because we have so much depth at PF that Bargs playing off the bench behind Amir is eating up minutes for .... oh wait.. or when someone is hurt we can.. oh wait... Nevermind. Nobody. Except you were going to start Ross at PF I assume. Keep on subjuct if ur gonna bitch.

There isn't much value there. Teams don't like chuckers. I would be shocked to see anyone offer him more than the minimum.
