Exclamation Raptors Say No For Garbajosa To Play In Olympics

Thank you and hopefully they'll do the same for Bosh or hope that Jerry Colangelo doesn't choose Chris for the team this summer. Getting healthy for next season MUST be our team's biggest priority this summer. :mad:

"I think it's a safe assumption that he will not be playing in the Olympics as long as he's under contract to us," Colangelo said.

Only if he want out of his Raptors contract.

I remember an interview with him from the winter where he said he doesn't plan to be in the olympics and wants to do everything possible to get back to playing with the Raptors.

Yeah, as much as Garbajosa loves playing for the spanish team, he wants to keep his NBA carrer in toronto safe.

And besides there are a lot of good substitutions. They dont really need him that much.

I dont get while they wouldnt let him play. It'll help him ajust more with a bum wheel.

either way he'll never be the same though.

Oh snap..someone just went there!

Hump has to know his role and play within his boundaries. That's when he's most successful.

This is good. Garbo has already played for the national team, so he's fulfilled that dream. Now he needs to make some cash and try to win an NBA title.
