Post Today in Raptorland - 12/5/07

Delfino killing them softly

"I see him playing hard, he just doesn't look like it," Mitchell said. "His hair doesn't really get ruffled. He doesn't have that pissed off look on his face but inside you can tell. I know him better. I'm comfortable with him. I trust him."
Raps prepare for Nash

Mitchell said the key to defending Nash is getting the ball out of his hands and forcing the other Suns to make plays.

"He's capable of scoring 30 points so you can't say make him score because he's smart enough to understand that the nights he needs to score, he scores," Mitchell said.

Calderon up for stiff challenge

"We have some things we're going to try, we have Plans A, B, C," coach Sam Mitchell said yesterday, without divulging any specifics. "After that? I don't know."
Deep thoughts on how to succeed in the NBA

Bryan Colangelo, the Raptors general manager, got a phone call the other day. It was from an agent advertising the wares of a player possessed of qualities sorely missing from the Toronto roster this season, athleticism for one.

And though the GM wasn't interested for a list of reasons, the deal sealer, in some ways, was a simple truth: the free agent in question cannot shoot.

"If a guy can't shoot, I generally say ... `I'm not sure he can play with us,'" Colangelo said. "It's just the way the game has evolved."

Calderon might just have a little Nash in him

“I watch a lot of him playing,” the 26-year-old Calderon said yesterday. “Him and Jason Kidd are the best in the NBA.

“For sure, you try to look at them and learn,” added Calderon, who will make his eighth consecutive start tonight. “If you play the point and want to be the best point guard, you have to watch Steve.”
