Full Moon !

The talk of the whole Raptorland is the unheralded 27 year old , 6'8'' rookie Jamario Moon. Moon was suddenly inserted by coach Sam Mitchell in the starting 5 versus the Bulls. The Raps won that game pulling away, 107-71. Moon scored 12 points and grabbed 6 rebounds in 23 mins. of play. Who is Jamario Moon ? Moon previously played for the Harlem Globetrotters and lately the Albany Patroons in the CBA . Get this , Moon is not only a Scottie Pippen dunk-a-like (same long body too) but he can play good defense like Pippen. ' I pattern my game after MJ or Scottie ' said Jamario Moon who lives up to his name . He's a high flying (up to the moon) slam jamming dude ! . Moon is the current CBA's Defensive Player Of The Year. Coach Sam is a genius for recognizing the talent of the Missisisipi native who tried out earlier with the Lakers , the Bucks and the Cavs. Too bad that Moon starting over Jason Kapono won't mean that his $450,000 salary will leap high to come closer to the latter's $12 mil per annum pay. Although Moon can leap over the referree anytime as shown on you tube being circulated by his new fans !

What is this Raptors' fans fascination with Moon?So what if he played decent in 2 straight games.I still think the Raptors will need Jason Kapono's experience and three point shooting especially when they reach the playoffs.

Where do you get Kapono makes $12M a year? I thought Colangelo used his mid-level exception on the guy...$5-6M per annum max...? Even at that salary, he isn't producing. Plus I see him as the defensive weak link to the starters and not AB. He hasn't been that effective recently with his defensive assignments. The answer isn't Moon but Garbo. Jorge is wasted talent at 7 minutes to none of burn a night. His game isn't suited to being a third unit player or garbage time. What happened to "Garbo's our glue guy" of last season's rotation? Get him out of the doghouse (if he's in one) I say, and get Bargnani back to starting 5-spot. For a team that can move the ball and shoot, having the luxury of going big should not be forsaken. Kapono and Calderon would anchor your second unit, and with them I would feel safe holding leads or maintaining momentum. Kapono could jack them up like he was paid to do instead of his current 7 shot attempts per game. With Delfino, Dixon, and Rasho holding up the defensive end...this rotation addresses several gaps in the Raptors' current losses.

i agree with josh. two games gives us hope there is help on the bench, but it doesn't mean he will be able to do this for a season. lets revisit his potential greatness aka second coming of pippen around the all-star break. and for now, be happy he doesn't suck.

Moon, Graham, Garbajosa, Kapono, Delfino... Are they small forwards? or somebody are play forwards and shoting guards?
