Default Raptors Trying To Move Graham & Parker

Say it ain't so .... Joey's just starting to take over the NBA.

Why? Those two don't make much money. Moving Joey would be a bad idea IMO considering how he's one of the only agressive players we have. Parker is our best guard...

This makes no sense.

Of course they are.

[sarcasm]Joey's finally starting to show flashes that he may in fact overcome the mental hurdle that's held him back thus far in his career and has somewhat become that tough wing player we've all longed for - an Artest lite if you will. Why not move him...maybe for another three point threat? Is Matt Carroll available?[/sarcasm]

"Apparently there has been alot of interest in Jawai these day. The way he jumps out of his seat and cheers on the team really demonstrates the athleticism that this big guy posseses; and apparently Pat Riley likes what he see's"

I'll start another. JO and Kapono will be traded to Detroit for Iverson and Johnson

Bosh will be traded to OKC, because he wants to be in a big market, for Green, Wicox, Watson and a first round pick

The way this team is going Bargani will play point, Bosh will play shooting guard and JO will be small forward... ff course they will bring 2 even taller guys to play 4 & 5.

I don't want to see this team without those 2 guys UNLESS we're getting a hell of a swingman back.

hahahaha what a joke this is. Ya lest trade these two guys (agruably the two guys that are putting down the most effort recently, and trade them away) also oneal and Bargs can be put in the top end effort place also.

Lets keep the injury magnet that is Oneal (although once he plays for a coupple of weeks it looks like he turns into a monster....until he gets injured again) and Bosh who obviously does not want to be here and will leave. (his body language and effort is screaming that he does not want to play here.

and trade the two guys they are keeping this team alive

Um, if Graham played everyday like he has a few times this year, when he has shown his potential, he is much more than Artest lite.

Graham was the man last night, and was the most dominant player on the floor, moreso than Kobe even. Kobe had a hot hand, but Grahm did it with finesse, with terror, and he got to the hole with purpose.

I hope he is collecting experience with these performances and can raise both his understanding of what it takes to be that player regularily, and that he is that player.

I wouldn't mind if Raps keep Joey as a backup for similar money he is getting now but also I wouldn't be too upset if he left... Joey is similar to Mo, sometimes he is great and sometimes he is... well, himself.

I'd be happy if he was signed to a deal similar to Hump's.

I somewhat agree.

But when was the last time he was this consistent in terms of his aggressiveness and determination? Sure he may not be there on the stat sheet every night but it seems like we can at least count on him going to the hole strong and playing with intensity.

That alone, to me at least, shows maturation.
