Love it.
I like tough Basketball.

With Dandies like Ross and Gay floating around, these newer tough guys can really balance it out.

Sadly, I was hoping for a 5 win season....these character guys don't know how to lay down.....

He's a tough little bugger who can score and has tempered his idiocy with age. he'd be a nice player on a better team in a minor role I think.

i've always hated nate robinson, but i think he's one of those players you'd learn to appreciate having on your team. looking at the point guards available, he's definitely the one i'd be looking to target.

lets go winning culture!

I like it - but if anybody things he's just a "back-up" they're kidding themselves. This would be another chapters in the Raptors' long history of PG controversy.

Would be another great pickup IMO. He'd be an ideal spark off the bench... and if we get him on the cheap like we did Psycho T?

Sign me up.

All the more reason to do it.

Fuck tanking. I've seen enough horrid bball over the past 15 years to last a lifetime.

How about we flip the script and back a team that I dunno.... actually shows some BALLS and WANTS to win??

immaturity? cockiness? dude has obviously matured over time, but it's often hard to shake off the thought that he's a twat. my dislike for him has nothing to do with his game.
