Today in Raptorland - 11/9/08



Raptors giving opponents far too many shots

Quote:
"We've got to stop giving up extra possessions, giving people more shots," said coach Sam Mitchell. "It's hard to win when you're giving teams 10, 12 more shots."

"What if we get 10 extra shots? If you just make two, you win the basketball game and that's just 20 per cent. Let's say you get 10 extra and you shoot your 45 (per cent) or whatever. You're talking about eight, nine points right there."


Raps' defence rapped

Quote:
Mitchell was concerned that on Friday the Raptors' perimeter defence was too spaced, not getting in anyone's face and too reliant on Bosh and O'Neal to battle under the basket.

Calderon said it wasn't being soft as much as it was teammates trying too hard to help out each other and then getting out of position themselves.

"I'm certainly not worried about the offence, but (Atlanta) was a game where everyone had an off night," Calderon said.
Hey Sam, maybe there was space because you sent guys like Jose into the post to help out? Not a good sign for us that this guy still hasn't figured it out.

MJ high on Brown

Quote:
The Bobcats aren't pushovers for the Raptors or anyone else these days. In picking Hall of Famer Larry Brown as the club's third head coach in as many years, basketball operations boss and part-owner Michael Jordan has a man known to implement quick fixes.

"We've struggled to find our identity," Jordan said. "I think the city is very hungry for a successful franchise. I don't want to put too much pressure on Larry, but I think this is the type of atmosphere that he enjoys."


Okofar flu like symptoms

Quote:
BOBCATS UPDATE: Center Emeka Okafor missed practice Saturday with flu symptoms. If he can't play today, that could be big trouble, because the Raptors are loaded inside with Chris Bosh and Jermaine O'Neal. The Bobcats are already shorthanded among big men, with Sean May addressing conditioning issues.

MJ and Larry Brown. Is there two bigger douches more deserving of each other?

The Globe has a Bobcats-Raptors preview.

It's not that good, but it's there.

The SSG ain't THAT bad.

And at least she's real and not touched up and photoshopped, unlike the other chick.

The SSG is nowhere near as bad as we've seen in the past - they didn't do her any favours with that horrible red top - I had a look at some of her other pics and they are much more flattering.

The UMM girl is smokin hot though so good call anyway.

Haha, I'm not! Nuthin wrong with being photoshopped to perfection. That's what makes you boys happiest.

I like real pics of girls, that's all! If the SSG pic was touched up, they could make her look like another woman... then you'd like her

Possibly.

That COULD explain why I don't think she's so bad.
