Like Father , Like Suns

With the inclusion of TJ Ford in the Raptors fold , Colangelo is getting closer to his desire to transform the Raptors into the Phoenix Suns of the East . This fact is no mystery to the whole of Raptorland . Upon BC 's hiring up to the drafting exercise . it was made known to all that that is his mission. In Behind The Draft feature of Raptors NBA TV , Colangelo reiterated this objective. ' Just like what we did at Phoenix , we hope to transform the Raptors into a running team ' Colangelo said. That's why Charle V. was sacrificed . TJ Ford will be the new Steve Nash. A faster Nash but can he shoot outside ? Nah. Ford needs to work on his long range shooting . The 3 pt. shot if he wants to be as effective as the 2 time MVP. Rightnow, TJ is only 1/2 MVP !

Chemistry should be no problem with Ford's inclusion. ' I am good friends with Chris ' said TJ when asked about his relationship with the Raptors star, Chris Bosh . ' We are both from Texas and I go to his place when we ( the Bucks ) play in Toronto and he goes to my place when they are in Milwaukee' he added. Yeh that's right. TJ is a friendly baller . Too friendly some will say. TJ was all smiles whenever his team is against the Raptors. A lot of hand slapping and hugging . You noticed how much TJ smiles during games. That the knock against Vince before by the Toronto press. ' Why can't he be like those hardnosed hockey players ' they asked.

Well what do you expect .

You asked for a Ford .

Not a Hummer !


Anyone asked for me ?

Chalie V is too good to give up. BC will regret this move.

I am thrilled to be a raptor fan right now
I remember the last time we had a real C, a PG and an all-star we made it to the playoffs
I loved cahrlie v but this was a great deal for both teams as it filled a need both teams had and i like the game that TJ brings to the floor
