Parker Without A Desparate Housewife

This morning the Raptors brass introduced Anthony Parker , the latest Raptor , to the local media. Of course to those who follow professional basketball this side of town , Parker needs no introduction. He was the one who beat the Raptors in a pre season game last time by burying a jump shot in the last second of the game. Parker was then a member of Maccabi team of Israel . ' He cannot beat him then , so we got him ' joked Bryan Colangelo. Apparently , the former Suns GM tried to recruit Parker for Phoenix but his team has no buy out clause . He added ' that the presence of International players in the team is because of the availability of these quality ballers '.

I like Parker . He seems like a quality guy . ' I am 31 yrs. old and I think I have gained a lot of experience from playing abroad ' . It would be Parker's second stint in the NBA . ' I was playing behind Iverson and Stackhouse then Hughes . It was very hard to show your skills under coach Larry Brown ' said the former 76ers. ' .Parker will play behind Mo Pete or is he ? In our line up , Parker will be a small forward or an off guard ' said Colangelo when asked by Chuck Swirsky of Raptors TV what will be the role of Parker. Good . Better than Parker parking on the bench !

Mo Pete : Parker , Go sit on the bench !

I love this deal.. class act is Anthony Parker and gives us a guy who can play SG/SF and so can mo and we need that depth but the more intriguing signing is John Salmons...
he might just be the raja bell signing BC has been waiting for.. this kid can play PG/SG/SF but a team once stacked with bigs is looking mighty slim we need another backup C type guy

Do you know the answer to this: Which third baseman was the first to hit a World Series home run for three different teams?
If so, I need to know today! ;)
