Default Is there something wrong with Roko that we don't know about??

Because for shitty Soloman to continually get more (and better) opportunities than him, night in and night out I think there has to be something wrong with him. Is Roko secretly stupid?? Possibly he has multiple personalities and JT can only really play him when he is "Roko" and not "Roxanne". I don't really know what could be wrong with him, I just know that there MUST be something wrong with him, because it is absolutely mind boggling that shitty Soloman always gets the better of the opportunities.

Maybe it has nothing to do with Roko, maybe it is all the doing of shitty Soloman and his scheme to ensure he "relieves" all of the coaching staff when they have any "pressure" built up during the season.

.....Ohhhh and this is my first post......so hello fellow stress addicts.

Coming from croatia, i dont see any issues with him, atleast not to my knowledge. He will never give u 20p10a per game as he is not that kind of player, most europe players arent. U can expect exactly what u saw till now, he is hardworking so improvement will come...

Sorry Max, my post wasn't meant to be taken literally. I don't actually think there is something wrong with Roko, so it was a joke when I suggested he might be re tard ed or have multiple personalities. I actually think Roko is a much better player than shitty Soloman, that is why I am dumbfounded as to why he gets better opportunities than Roko.

I just thought it might be fun to speculate about why this is happening.

Nothing wrong with him except for his shot.


When no one on this team can hit shots, Solomon has to play over Ukic solely for the fact that he can shoot and score(albeit to a fualt)

Soloman has played pretty well the past few games.

Roko is a part of this teams future, I believe his scoring will come when he gets more comfortable with the NBA game, and he will only get more comfortable with more playing time (not sitting behind Soloman).

Using Soloman over Roko is only a temporary band-aid, that I think is only delaying the potential of the team and Roko.

While I partly agree with ya I would only like to add this, as long as Jose is out Slomon will get more minutes.

Once Jose is back 100% and doing his thing, it will allow the team to develop Roko a bit more.

He's fine. He's going through puberty, but he's been dealing with it.

Maybe because Triano doesn't want a Bargs 2, I mean, a guy who goes from starter to second string every time the team does bad. Just making the guy goes by the slow and safe way. IMO.

It depends on match ups ... Roko is still learning to play in NBA. He is rash, he just need to play more carefull and avoid TO.

you can see his shot is the problem. He has extreme hesitation when ever he goes to shoot the ball, especially from the 3pt line.

Not really anything wrong with him, except tha he has no jumpshot at all, and is generaly not that good.

I like him.

I wonder the same things sometimes. And then I think of colangelo. and then i think of his shot. and then whatever else.

COuld be colangelo brought in solomon, and he wants to see him played, prove he did a good tyhing, or to show for trade, or w/e else. probably not though.

I do agree his shot isnt there, but he is starting to command some respect with his penetration and this little floater he's developing. if he can continually do that he'll have defenses collapsing and make it easier to pass. However, his shot, or lack there of, makes it harder to start that drive. If he can develop a good mid to long range shot, he'll be really good.

I wish we could combine Ukic and Calderon. Caldukic. Calderford. Ya, getting carried away now.

No matter how bad roko's jumpshot is, the guy still owns Solomon in every other posssible category, even on maturity and play under pressure and Solomon is 7 years older. weird.

Will is not a stellar shooter and is an absolutely awful distributor which we all witness night in night out.

So, I gotta agree with the thread starter 100% ...I just dont see why Ukic gets such pore burn on the court while Solomon, who btw would never make it in the NBA in any other shape or form after being expelled 6 years ago, is playing 30 mins a game for Raptors.

In a way its good for competition between the 2 and insures better play while on court but some night Triano pulls Ukic out as soon as he makes a mistake while Willie's whole play is a mistake on occasion and he still gets 20 mins at least.

guys. Solomon is more polished than Roko right now. Do i think Roko will be better than Solomon in a one / two years? For sure. I'd bet the farm on it... but at this point, Solomon is better as the team's "starter."

I like Roko a lot and think he's going to be a very good PG. At the same time Will is doing a "servicable" job and really has gotten better compared to the turn over machine he was earlier. His last few games (minus Boston) have been quite good.

The scary thing is that i'd take both over Jose (in the state he is in now).
