Post Today in Raptorland - 3/28/08



New Rap in town

Quote:
Johnson's signing was made possible by Darrick Martin's exit from the uniformed roster. But Martin, the 37-year-old point guard who has established himself as a respected locker-room mentor, will remain with the club as a player development consultant after he clears waivers.
Raptors' Ford may be wearing out his welcome

Quote:
"If we get to that point this summer where we feel it's not going to work (with Calderon and Ford) going forward," he said, "then we'll have some decisions to make . . ."


Raps' changes pay off quickly

Quote:
"I think it changes the defensive approach of the whole team," Bosh said of having Nesterovic on the floor more often. "We know he's going to talk on defence. He's going to have a lot of fire when he's playing and he's going to let you know if things aren't going well."
Ready for the run

Quote:
"I think the most important thing is when you focus on the name on the front of your jersey, not the back," Garbajosa said. "When you think about it, if you focus on your teammate good things happen. It's not a matter of how many minutes you're going to play."

Garbajosa only learned of his friend's offer when the switch was announced Wednesday morning, and while he admits it's not a common occurrence in the NBA, Calderon making such a sacrifice did not surprise him.

"I don't want to say that's the European way or that we are different at all, but it's really easy to talk about sacrifices, it's really tough to do it," Garbajosa said. "With this kind of act, you can see it was not just words (for Calderon)."


It's time to trade Ford, commit to Calderon

Quote:
Asked whether he could imagine a future playing 24 minutes a game, or some version of that, for 82 regular-season games, Ford was again pretty clear.

"No," he said. "This year was a different scenario, because I was hurt and I was out. But if that didn't happen, I was showing I was one of the best guards in the east at the time."


Nesterovic earning his keep at both ends of the floor

Quote:
"We were afraid of Rasheed taking Rasho out on the floor, but we also didn't want to have to (double-team him) and open up three-point shots for Jarvis Hayes and Chauncey Billups," Mitchell said. "Rasho allowed us to not have to go and double-team."

Maria, Maria!

And his continuing assertion that all was well when he wasn't a starter – "I think I did a great job off the bench," he said yesterday – is disingenuous. He could probably make it better quickly with a sincere: "My bad."
That's a big negative little buddy.

Too bad he's too proud to admit when he sucks.

So true...

This would make a great quote of the day, if we had one.

TJ is in dire need of a PR guy. Someone to just say...for just a few weeks TJ, shut up.

I like outspoken sports guys....who get away from the cliche's.

But " I thought I did a good job off the bench" YKES.

Yeah ... I noticed today that Grange and Feschuk are having a field day with Ford now too with their "Has Ford worn out his welcome" and "Is it time to trade TJ" articles.

Let the games begin.
