Default Rasho Nesterovic!!

Lots of talk about TJ/Calde but what about Bargs/Rasho

How good is Rasho for a player nobody talks about. Never complains, almost never makes any mistake (except not jumping more than an inch and getting his shots blocked), works hard, he is smart and tough,

I think he has been the third best player on this team this season. He deserves that starting spot. I want Bargs to improve but I really dont care anymore. I want Rasho to start in the playoffs.

I've loved him since day one.

Can't believe we got him for the Red Rocket and Eric Williams. It's funny that the Spurs have had a revolving door of centre's since moving him.

I have always loved him too. But I have to admit I never imagined he would be the one "stepping up" for us in bad times.

Rashos the fucking man. He was never this good in SA but is now showing his hater who is boss. We got him in the prime of his career. Hes worth every cent. Muahaha

Rasho is old school, moving around the floor is second nature to him, if we have another four players playing at the same frequency on the floor, we can beat any team no question ask. Those days where everybody was in lala land and we were learning how to box in order to get a fricking rebound, he was the only one doing it, so Barg watch and learn!!

Rasho is my litmus test to see if I am talking to a Raptor Fan or a knowledgeable basketball person.

No, he doesnt dunk like Moon, but gosh darn can he direct traffic.

Don't get me wrong..I love Rasho always have...and I'm not asking him to dunk for some highlite reason...but instead to not get it blocked or miss an easy layup...its like a inch...just jump an inch.

I'm ok with Rasho starting in the playoffs. The time for Andreea to learn is in the first 70 games, now it's time to win at all costs.

jeez... Rasho BETTER start in the playoffs!

He was pretty spectacular last night. Has a nice block or two if i remember correctly as well.

As much as i want Andrea to be the centre of the future, we need a big man who is savy and can play with the likes of other savy centres in the league. I don't know if Andrea can ever become that traditional centre, but Rasho is one such player right now. And more power to him to do his thing.

If only he would have a bit of a nicer touch around the rim sometimes, he would be even better. He misses a lot of easy points IMO. Still, Rasho was a big reason as to why we won yesterday and i hope he plays like that everynight.

4 of them blocks, not all of them "clean", but still, that's Bosh and Bargnani combined in a whole week ...

I swear his hook shot in the lane against Miami a few weeks back was the greatest hook shot in Raptors history.

Agree. I understand what Benzo says, but other than that detail, he is all what you want in a big man. Many people use to look at the guy with the ball and don't see all the work Rasho is doing on the paint, he never stops and he always does what is the best at every moment. Plus he never complains about the few touches he uses to get in the offensive end.

If I knew something about internet sites I would make the page IloveRasho:nohomo:.com.
