It was Garnett doing things that if it was anybody else would get them a taunting tech and Calderon just reacting.Boston plays tough but it sure helps when they get all the calls and not just against the Raptors. My biggest issue with the NBA is the fact that the refs don't call games straight up but call based on reputation.
Imagine if Sheed or Artest did that taunting...they would watch the game from the locker room and their wallets would be $5k lighter.I'm tired of KG changing calls by yapping in refs ears and Pierce getting every call, every time.

They looked quite good yesterday. Their starting 5 is really good. Their big downfall this year has been the play of Will Solomon. The guy is really terrible. If Jose Calderon has to leave the court, their second team just looks terrible with him running the floor.

Makes you miss the days of Ford and Calderon in the backcourt, was part of what made the Raps a decent team was their second PG was always better than the other teams second PG.

I really think that Roko Ukic is a better PG than Solomon. I think that Solomon plays better D though and the Raptors second team really lacks on the defensive side.

I can`t find a link to the article but basically Bosh has come out with an MVP mentality and thinks he can compete for it.Still lots of season left but CB4 is 2nd in ppg and up there in min played. Any chance or is Lebron pretty much a lock

Lebron is certainly not a lock as he had has similar numbers in recent years and is yet to win one

but now that Kobe got his MVP it`s pretty hard to ignore Lebron. MVP should be for the individual year but we all know that if it`s close then performance history definitely helps.

Yea, I've always thought he was terrible. You heard who they're looking at as the permanent replacement? Not too many people like him, but I love Jeff Van Gundy.

always thought Sam would be pretty good with the young guys but the team has matured and has more talent now. probably needs an experienced coach. hope the best for Jay to lead the Raps but it's a gamble...not sure whether the international experience translates into wins in the NBA.

Can somebody tell me what's happening in Toronto?Glad to see the Raps get a couple wins without Calderon and O'neal but I don't see it lasting. So why are the Raps sucking so much arse this year and what are the latest rumours for upgrade?

Wow, this thread is dying faster than the Raps in the rankings...it's a lonely time to be a Toronto fan.From the Doug Smith blog:Action: Some weird lineupsReaction: Get used to them.I looked up from the machine at one point in the third quarter and the five guys on the court were: Anthony Parker, Jason Kapono, Jamario Moon, Joey Graham and Jake Voskuhl.Never in my wildest imagination did I ever think I’d see that.But with Bosh out and the confidence level in Roko Ukic and Will Solomon apparently at an all-time low, we might see that every now and then.And we shall shudder. at least we can draft a good 2 or 3?

I like the trade. I think if the Raps want an uptempo game having Jose, Bosh and Marion is a great combo.

5Bargnani4Bosh3Marion2Parker1CalderonI like the trade too but I dunno know if it's enough of an upgrade to make the playoffs. if the Raps stumble even a little post-allstar game it's done for the season.

I really like Marion w/ a point guard who can get him the rock in easy spots.I expect he'll do quite well..A little late to make the playoffs, but Marion is a big upgrade over the artist formerly known as Jermaine.Can Toronto keep Marion next year? Should be interesting.. Nice cap relief if not, solid player if they do. They should probably make a push to keep him if it's not too spendy: it's hell to get Free Agents of note north of the border.

The Raptors had by far the worst schedule in the NBA the up to this point which means they have the best one the rest of the way.Mostly home games, very few back to backs. Mostly playing losing teams. Play the Knicks 4 times for example.They should win a lot more games then they lose the rest of the way.I'm not really sure that I want them to make the playoffs this year though even if it means I have more games to go to.
