We need to bring Jose off the bench at this point. Jose was the reason we had the best bench in 2006-2007 I think we need him to work with the second unit and make them look good.

Our bench really struggles with Solomon and Ukic running the show.

This is my personal opinion and I know it has been discussed a few times before. Please dont shoot me.

It comes close to the guy I heard on the FAN590, ranting about how Sam needs to be fired, and how Humphries needs to play the 3.

I agree that Jose needs to work with the bench guys a bit more...dont' think not starting him is the way to do that. Soloman showed that he can dish to Bosh/ONeal and Bargnani well enough and let them do most of the work but we still want Jose on the court in crunch situations thoughout the game.

There is some kind of very perverse logic to what he is saying...

Seriously, though, my problem with both Jose and Solomon at the moment is the fact that neither tries to push the ball upcourt. In fact, the entire team seems to be a tad slow in transition - maybe that's why the point guards are not running/passing?

After 1 game he's going to make this assumption. Lets strengthen our bench and weaken our starting line up, that makes sense

It looks like you already miss TJ guys ... many of you hate TJ, but he did a decent job keeping everyone up tempo.

No disrespect RealGM'er ....but....First of all when Calderon was coming off the bench last season he was decent behind a proven injury prone starting PG in TJ...But when TJ got injured again, he took the oppurtunity to solidify himself as a starting Point Guard in the NBA putting up next to all-star numbers not to mention holding the title of the NBA's best assist to turnover ratio...You are telling me the NBA's best "statistical" ball-handler should come off the bench! He deserves to start and has earned the money and privillage to start. On a side note, this year, the offence is going to be bit a more halfcourt because of our primetime bigs in Bosh and Oneal...Last year it was a more open offence pushing the ball up the court working our way from the outside/in...Where as this year as seen in the Miami game, Inside/Out, a more half-court game is effective..Still it is early in the season and the Raptors are still searching for the right ingredients for thier bread and butter and Jose STARTING at PG is an intergral part of that.

Never hated Jose but the love he gets in this city is ridiculous. Too many people are Jose fans and not Raptor fans and that is when it becomes an issue. You had two point guards and it wasn't working out. One had to go, you live with the decisions that you make, just wish the biased support for Jose would stop.

you reminded me of something funny from the past:

a while back SJ did a pretty good list of Raptor / Star Wars characters comparisons. (at least i think it was SJ)

I challenge the "Judge" to make a new one

I don't think it's biased. Not with myself at least. I liked TJ. I was a fan of his, but at the same time i preferred how the team played with jose running things.

Look, I think one of the things that made jose more popular than TJ was the fact that he was a consumate pro, and a selfless teammate. TJ tried to do too much and wanted to be "the man." Jose, not so much. I respect his "team first" mentality very much.

How much more dumber do you get.
Why do you think we traded Tj, so we can put Caldy as a starter. If we were gonna have him come of the bench we coulda kept Tj.
