Default Rosen's Atlantic Preview



Quote:
Toronto Raptors
Strengths: Chris Bosh's slick drives and pull-ups.

The quick release and accuracy of Andrea Bargnani's long-range jumpers.

No other point guard takes better care of the ball than Jose Calderon.

Antoine Wright has quick skills that have yet to be fully tapped.

There's always the possibility that Marcus Banks will finally approach the upper limits of his considerable talent.

Hedo Turkoglu's shooting range and uncanny ability to drive the ball into the lane.

Jarrett Jack's leadership and toughness.

Weaknesses: Lack of defense and interior scoring.

Not enough scoring off the bench.

Their toughest, most mobile big man — Reggie Evans — can't score with a pencil.

Their center position is manned by Rasho Nesterovic, Patrick O'Bryant and Jake Voskuhl — certainly the least athletic in-the-middle threesome extant.

Calderon lacks imagination.

Their franchise player — Bosh — is best equipped to be a second option.

The team has no discernible personality.

Prognosis: If Jay Triano can lead this dysfunctional squad into the playoffs, he should be the unanimous choice for Coach of the Year.

Weaknesses: Lack of defense
what about Evans, Wright and Jack?

Not enough scoring off the bench
Jack and Belli is around 25-30 pts per when given some minutes

It must be hard having a job where you have to keep track of 30 basketball teams.

I don't think there's a single player in the league who an score with a pencil, might be wrong though.

No sorcing off the bench?! WTF is this guy smoking. I swear I feel like making a petition to ban any articles of Rosen on this forum. The guy is a piss off

Man this guy did a terrible job with this article. He just looked at the roster and commented about each player. *PUSHING OUT OF HEAD*

What a pathetic article. He basically look at our PER's from last season and he commented on if each player can improve his stats.

Douchebag!

I knew this was going to be a bull shit article even before I clicked. Charlie Rosen hates this Canadian team. He's a tunnel vision d-bag. The only thing that's dysfunctional is Fox Sports for hiring this ass clown.

Apparently Rosen wants to know the personality of a team before they have yet to play a preseason game! He could have at least watched a few interviews with the players and coaches before he made this stuff up.
