Arrow Sporting News: Chance of a turnaround likely

Five teams who know it's time to turn it around...here's what they said about the Raptors.

Quote:
Raptors. As long as the Raptors start Andrea Bargnani at center, they’re not going to be the kind of team that can dominate inside or play robust in-the-paint defense. They’re always going allow a certain amount of penetration, and they’re always going to get pushed around by bigger post men. But that’s not why their defense has been struggling—it’s the perimeter that is killing them. Toronto has given up the most 3-pointers in the league and allows opponents to shoot 37.2 percent from behind the arc, sixth-worst in the NBA. “We’ve got to improve our defensive intensity in every aspect,” Raptors forward Chris Bosh said. “Inside, outside, in the middle. Everywhere.”

Chances for a turnaround: Likely.

Great day today. Lots of negativity for Bargnani. I say the Raptors beat the Nets by 20.

It's nice to hear a little bit of optimism in such dark and confusing times.

Oh but its his permeter game, that why the pussy cant rebound

this massive 7 foot cunt takes lots of three's and that is why he cant defensive rebound for the life of him and why he misses switch's all the time with his head up his ass and why he's always on the outside looknig in every time the body's are banging in the paint


all because of three's

Oh well, lets trade bosh
