Raps will activate Martin and use Dixon more... plain & simple... no panic needed... at least not yet... ;)

Not good enough...If T.J is out for a long time, we are a Jose twisted ankle away from a lottery team.

Well... Raps can't just go out & buy a good PG... let's wait & see how long TJ will be out and then let's see how good Dixon & Martin will do... Jose is banged up but he is a gamer and can easily play 35+ minutes... all Raps need is to cover 10+ minutes with him on the bench... Dixon can do it... and so can Martin... he'll stop going to Micky Dee's every day and start going to the gym more...

This injury is the reason why I was so pissed at the Raps dropping all those winnable games in November... every good team needs, not only a deep team but win cushion as well..

We're gonna need a 1 yr ago TJ like performance from Jose on the West coast this year if we're gonna stay afloat. The West coast games are the games I most look forward to watching, hopefully the rest of the guys can stay healthy and we can win a couple out there, and Bargs gets his form back.

In regards to the PG situation, Dmart can handle 10 minutes a game I think as long as he doesnt go into chucker mode. He still has a decent jumper when open and as long as our help D continues to be good he wont be that big of a problem on defence vs backups. I dont like Dmart but hes capable for 10 minutes I think.

Andre Barrett anyone? BC picked him up before, and he played well, so why not sign him for the remainder of the season? I don't have ANY faith in D-Mart. None. He's a good guy, but you can't trust him for 10-15 minutes a game.

fancylad 12-12-2007 10:09 AM

ya, the first guy that came to mind for me was Barret too.
We don't need a scorer. Which is often what Martin thinks he is there to do. We need a guy with decent speed who can make the easy pass.

I'm quite confident in a few days we'll see a new face on the team.

I'm not panicking...although it sucks. This is why we have the pg situation we do. Jose will play 40mpg and Dmart and Dixon will likely fill up the other 8mins. Problem solved. As for the chance of losing Jose... most teams would already be lottery bound losing their main point guard for a month... feel fortunate we have this luxury :)

MangoKidHoops 12-12-2007 10:55 AM

You can't ride Jose that much for the duration of the season or else the guy will be fried come playoff time.

You think so? Many point guards play 38+ minutes... just because he's been a backup doesn't mean he can't handle minutes. He showed over the last 5 games he can handle the minutes. When TJ comes back(and i doubt it's a month personally) he takes over the majority of the load again and Jose rests.

I dont' get the panic here people. It's unfortunate but it happens. This is the exact scenario BC planned for to keep jose in the fold...to which i remain extatic. We're going to be alright.

Exactly .... and I'm sorry 10 minutes of DMart is 10 minutes too much. Diagnosis for Ford doesn't sound good at all in the slightest, so BC's gonna have to find a back-up and a back-up soon. :(

Is it? What have you heard? All I can find is last night's report that he has feeling in all his extremities...meaning I suppose he didn't break his neck. What's the latest?

Benzo 12-12-2007 11:30 AM

Raps are sending a plane for him to bring him back to T.O.

Word is he'll be back
