Default Toronto Raptors' Bench Full of Unknowns

Decent read this morning.

Another fan pumping up Roko though and again another player who I hope isn't a total dud and disappointment this season. If Jose goes down for any period this season, Roko's likely going to have to step it up.

While, in his younger days, people played off of him due to his lack of upper body strength and limited finishing ability, last year he showed some great skills at finding his shooters.

Ukic's jump to the NBA couldn't have come at a better time. Had he come two years ago, he might have come down with Yoroslav Korolev syndrome, and been forced to play in Turkey for the next three decades.

Is he going to be called Roko Leni Ukic, and if so then should Jose not be referred to as Jose Manuel Calderon?

Sorry. Just looking for possible angles to a new point guard controversy.

my hopes for moon are fading fast after what he pulled with the training camp. I was sure that he would use this summer to build up his game for what will be his most important job in his life. I hope I'm wrong, but it looks like there was a reason why he only made it to the big league at 27.

Training camp hasn't started yet, so what has he pulled?

We don't even really know, but we think he screwed up his passport. Tell me you haven't waited until the last minute to get paperwork together for something - taxes, an assignment, a passport. Sure it looks bad and it's a major blunder on his part, but it's not that big of a deal in the grand scheme of things.

I am wondering who is better, Roko or Jose? Hard to say, but I am pretty sure we will cover this subject quite soon

I'm generally a forgiving person, but I'm very dissapointed in his case. While I agree that it's technically possible there was a glitch, I'm pretty sure that it wasn't. If there was a reason, he would probably have let the management know about it, and they wouldn't be so upset, right?
If Doug is right, than they really don't have an idea of why Moon didn't show up.
