he's a capable shooter and he's already been told.
in the last game against memphis he was wide open for 3 and he looked over at jay who was right behind him before he decided to jack it up.... he ended up missing it.

moon is still developing, as old as he is.

One person shouldn't be blamed for this loss. That's ridiculous. There were tons of contributing factors from the players to the coaches. We lost this as a team. Blaming one person is stupid.

Common ... let the kids have fun. If you follow Raptors news, that's the new strategy.

but putting the majority of the blame on some in particular is well within reason.

lol... Did Jose Calderon refuse to sign your jersey or something at some point in his time in Toronto.

Really, almost all your post's have something to do with him or the PG position on this team... just curious

Like I said before, we have the worst team to take advantage of Boston's glaring holes right now, especially with Jose back. They can't stop teams running on them and their bench has been getting killed. Well they didn't have to worry about that here

There's a time a place to be a hero. Jamario lacks mental maturity. That missed three killed whatever momentum we had. Not blaming him for today's loss, but he needs to play smarter especially against teams like Boston.

LOL ... so instead of ruin his confidence, you better ruin Raptors chances to win. Moon takes too many threes, he MUST drive more to basket and get at FT line. If he doesn't understand this, put his ass on bench for the rest of the game so he wouldn't play without confidence.

you can't blame Moon for taking those 3 point shots near the end, we all know he likes to take threes (and miss), that's just his game. he had open looks so he has to shoot.

Doc, sometimes do you think if we blame a particular player for something he definitley did wrong and blame the entireeeeeee loss on him (even though it might not have been only his fault), that he wont ever do it again?

I'm willing to take this loss if it teaches Moon a lesson and to smarten up.

Call me crazy, but I don't think he's bright enough to realize that. I mean, this isn't the first time its happened.

Yup. A lot of people here are praising Moon but he didn't do anything differently today. Yeah got got some boards, blocks etc. but that's what we expect of him. It's not like he was driving through the lane, he was settling for jumpers and more of them happened to fall today. Seems like an anomaly to me.

I don't blame Moon, I blame Triano who let him take whatever he wants.

You guys are real pissed over this game. Sure we failed at some runs and our defence was poor at times, but this game showed us the Ukic should play over Solo-mon and that run in the end was amazing. hopefully we can take that into the next game

haha its funny because someone got one of my boys a Calderon jersey for christmas and i threw it away. they actually got a signed Bosh jersey framed and hanging on their bedroom wall.

he broke my heart.
i thought he would be a better PG this season because he certainly didnt impress me last season. his style of play this year is still simliar to last year minus the rare penetration and layups.

I disagree, with the game on the line no player should be taking 3's unless you're on fire or a 3 point specialist like Ray Ray or Kaps.

I just knew Bosh would be a soft jumper shooter tonight. After shooting 11-13 Friday, you knew he had the mindset "look at me, I'm a jump shooter". No Bosh, you're not. And almost every game where he shoots under 40% is because he settled for jumpers.

It was stupid decision that made us lose and Moon made the biggest one of them all. Point the finger at his dumb ass. I don't like him! When did he become a jump shooter. Last time he should be in at the end of a game.
