Default Your Starting 5

As we close out this season and start to focus for next year we must ask ourselves about our starting 5. For this team to get back to the playoffs they must solidify the starting 5 and once that is done you work on your bench.

We have 2 guys that would be starters on most teams and 1 guy that can actually crack a few of them now. The guys I am talking about are Bosh, Calderon and Bargs. These guys are your keepers. We need a 2 and a 3 in our starting line up. Both Parker and Marion are bench guys at this time in their career. Until we correct this flaw in our starting line up we will not make the playoffs. If we wait to long will be looking to replace Bosh, Calderon and Bargs as starters with who knows what.

Marion has proved he can be a more than adequate starter in this league. More so than Jose.

Your 2009 Toronto Raptors:

Jose, Ukic
????, Parker
????, ?????
Bosh, Pops/Humps
Bargs, ??????

I dont think Graham will be back(hes going to OKC) and to be honest we need a veteran guard/forward off the bench too, as well as a decent backup center. And obviously the holes at the 2/3.

If we are making a big splash by trading one our bigs this offseason(which is gonna happen eventually), then another ???? will be added obviously.

Not even close my friend.The other teams would love to take advantage of our piss poor season by trying to snag Bosh, Calderon or Bargs.

As for Benzo he is having a Benzo moment. However, TJ still continues to not let me down. TJ just keeps proving that we kept the right guy.

Your right on we need that 2 and that 3. How we go about it is the question and I hope BC has the anwser.

Maybe we can get Teague from the draft to be our two guard and maybe we can sign Marvin Williams to be our 3 guard

Trade Bargs and Anthony Parker for Vince and Lopez?

but on a serious note. I think Parker is the spot we desperately need to fill moreso than marion. the next spot is bosh/bargs has to go to get this team going (hopefully it will be bargs).

I'd love to be able to look at the world so rosy and ignore all the harsh reality life throws at me too

Let's see... TJ's team had lower expectations this season, were pegged to miss the playoffs and has had more injury problems than the Raptors, and yet they seem to be ahead of us in the standings. Yes Tj has been a disaster and we're so much better with Jose leading the show.

I like them both, but at this point i'd rather keep Bargnani. He's more of a matchup nightmare, would come cheaper down the line (re-sign), and Bosh could get us more right now vs Bargnani.Plus i don't think CB wants to be here.
