A shooting guard that can't shoot for shit? :haha:

babyface 04-22-2009 07:47 PM

Roko is really good at driving to the basket but DAMNNN the guy can't shoot. If we could somehow fuse Roko with Jose then we got a top 3 point guard.

Like who

Igoudala can shoot. Just not as well as most SGs

You also have to realize that Ukic is skinny as hell. Swingmen who know what they are doing can absolutely carve up Ukic around the rim.

Superjudge 04-22-2009 08:14 PM

He's terrible.

tommysdu 04-22-2009 08:23 PM

does anyone think that he would be able to improve enough to play back up point guard, or should the raps try to find someone else and replace him completly?

Acie 04-22-2009 08:27 PM

Presumably he's been given a list of things to improve on and he's a gym rat, so let's see what he comes back like first. ;)

I am surprised Bryan threw him under the bus at his pc. The guy is in a new league and had a few great games. He started to struggle down the stretch, but all indications are that he is a hard worker, so why not see how he improves his game in the summer and then make a decision rather than saying that the team needs a new backup pg.

Maybe he was trying to light a fire under his ass?

Seems like a guy who would respond to criticism by working his ass off to get better.

Shooting guard????????

Are you joking like you were about the POB thing? Damn there is no way Roko can be the shooting guard with his shit shot. It is called shooting guard for a reason

Someguy again 04-22-2009 10:03 PM

in time he could be a good SG when he develops more.
but for now he's fine in being our driving PG, and I rather have him like that.

Do any of you guys actually know what a shooting guard is supposed to do are assuming that because the name "shooting" is in the title that he should be a lights out shooter. I'm really interested because being a great SHOOTER has nothing to do with being a great shooting guard.

ok let's just make Roko our starting shooting guard

N64 04-22-2009 11:16 PM

let's see how Roko plays next season, he showed flashes of greatness (thinking of against SA) this season, and obviously his shot sucks and he's skinny as hell but that's what the offseason is for lol :D

its_asdf 04-23-2009 01:29 AM

I don't really buy into this "SHOOTING GUARD IS FOR SHOOTERS" ridiculousness, especially considering how badly the Raptors need a wing player who has the ability to attack the basket and create jumpers for Bosh, Bargnani and Calderon.

I can see Ukic being a really solid combo guard down the road, but he doesn't seem like he'd be capable of using his defensive advantages (i.e. length) if he were to play shooting guard (especially against the lankier guards in the league). Once he gets a little more stronger in the upper body and more fundamentally sound, then I can see him being more of a combo guard off the bench.

With that being said, there still is a ton of work to be done... And that includes fixing up that jumper.
