convinced that Raptors fans are only happy when they're unhappy.

Default What The Other 3 Offers For Ford Were

These are apparently the other offers for T.J. which most of us kind of already knew.

i still like the o'neal trade it makes the raps better in defence, rebounding and inside scoring. three things the raps need to get better at

Ford AND 17 For Maggette? Shit.

The offers were really lacking star power.

None of those offers come close to JO in my opinion.

I wouldn't have been too upset with that Blazers deal though. It would've given us depth at the point and the swing spot, along with a lottery pick.

Still, nothing close to the impact of the JO deal.

I still would have liked Haslem for Ford straight up or something approximating that, but that doesn't seem to have been close to happening. The one we got was the real deal.

Kudos for BC for making the right decision here. I think JO was a good acquisition.

Thank god we didn't do Ford and the 17 for Diaw or Maggette. I wouldn't have done Ford straight up for those guys.

Oh, and since it's confirmed the Suns were looking at Ford... does this lend credence to the possible "big player" Walsh named as being Nash?

I doubt it because Calderon wants to be a starter.

Not me.

Haslem for Ford gives us 3 PF's (Bosh, Bargnani, Haslem).

Jermaine has been playing center for awhile now, and he will compliment Bosh much better than Haslem and Bosh would together. Haslem is a bit undersized to play the 5.
