Amir can backup the C position while also starting at PF. Hansbrough has a very small sample size as a starter - I wouldn't say that he is definitively a TJ Ford or Bayless who cannot play off the bench. Could just be a few strong games at the right time. Plus the starting lineup in Indy is very different from the starters here, so I don't know that you can draw the parallels you are.

Why? I don't care either way as long as the Raps put their players in the best position to help win games - if that means Amir comes off the bench then he comes off the bench. If it means he starts then so be it. No one deserves anything on the Raptors - I want to win as you do so let's not do the entitlement road.

Sacrifice. Sacrifice. Sacrifice. :mu:
