Exclamation Raptors To Sign Pops Mensah-Bonsu

I can honestly say I've seen him play before.

"I think there might be more minutes at my position with the Raptors and they wanted me even before I came to San Antonio. So I decided I'm going to go to Toronto."

PF SWAN. I guess just another option other than using Jake or O'Bryant.

Actually I've seen this guy play for the Spurs and he's a pretty nice pickup. Definately alot better than Jake... He's the best of the D-league, so that equates to an average NBA quality player.

He seems to want the ball alot though, lol... But he slams it in everytime. A strong post presence with dribbling skills and extreme athletism. He's a watered down Kenyon Martin.

That description just made him sound better than half our team!

I would also like to lend my support to the format changes on the website..Very spiffy!
