A season of mixed blessings??

As much as this season has been a disaster in the win columb, there is a few things to be thankful for. Mainly Andrea Bargnani & Joey Graham's play in the last few months. We now know that these two players can play and be major impacts on this team going forward when placed in the right situations.

AB's last 27 games:

18.8PPG/6.4RPG/1.6BPG
-----------------------
Joey's last 16 games:

12.2PPG/4.9RPG
-----------------------

So if anything, Brian Colangelo knows more then ever what he's got and maybe knows more about what he needs this summer via draft/FA/Trade. Joey Graham can be a good impact as a solid backup next season and start when needed without panicing about what you'll get from night to night.

Bosh played well tonight... he started poorly but to his credit he played 2nd half great.

I like that AP, AB & CB all scored over 20... gives Raps several options on offense and makes defending against them tougher.

I don't care... he scored 26 points... had 6 rebounds and 2 blocks... one at the key moment of the game.

He played great.

So he fights back and gets T'ed up or ejected? Yup, great reasoning there.

Is it just me or does Bargnani no tget al his Blocks recorded. I see an awful lot of shots he gets a finger on that aren't counted as blocks, but I can tell just by the way he looks back, or lands that he has gotten a piece of the all.

I guess you gotta start selling it to the stats guy, because honestly, the difference between 1.5 blocks, and 3.5 in the NBA is huge in terms of respect and attention, not to mention DPOY chatter (not Bargnani on that one, but anyone) and actual contractual implications.

I know other stats are too, but the block is one that is such a rare occourance, missing two in a game, over 82 games is massive.

And if AP has an off night Marion is there. I'm liking Marion being here, more and more everyday! He adds something to this team that the Raptors have lacked for years. With JO there, unless AB played at SF all 3 couldn't be on at the same time. Now with CB/AB/Marion on all at the same time it's getting fun.

Yep I see Bargs alter a lot of shots too. It really depends how the statisticians are calling it. Most nights, only a clean block counts for a block, the rest are considered "altered" shots that aren't recorded. But whenever you have a guy going for like 6-10 blocks (like Camby in his triple double for us), it's usually a home game, and the statisticans usually call anything that doesn't go in that had a hand around it a block.

If you were the stat guy SJ, Bargs would have 5 blocks a game, and 0 turnovers because you would refuse to acknowledge any travelling calls blown by the officials. You sound like a proud parent of an 11 year old OBA baller.

Bosh has had a very poor season for someone who should be in their "prime". He's gone from a PER over 24 last season, to under 22 this season. So very disappointing.

even though the season is turning out to be a wash record wise and playoff wise in many was it success

geting rid of Sam is not a good coach

Bargnani/graham playing well

Roko showing signs that he can play similar to the jose did, good games and tons of bad games in his first year

this season has been productive in the sense that development of players is occuring,

i'm very optimistic about next year

Yep. Hopefully he'll get healthy over the offseason and have a Wade-esque resurgence next season!
