Raps Beat The Washington Generals AKA The Chicago Bulls

It's just right that a former member of the Harlem Globetrotters led the Raptors in beating the Chicago Bulls, 93-78. Former Trotter Jamario Moon blocked 6 shots and played an all around game (15 pts./9 rebs./3 steals). Coach Scott Skiles' men, or should I say boys, are pathetic as usual. They don't seem to want to win except win the Megalotto to enable them to retire early. The ACC sellout crowd was esctatic nevertheless. I don't know why . The Bulls were expected to lose like the patsy Washington Generals are every night to the Globetrotters . The Raps barely beat the Bulls. The margin of victory became wide only in the closing minutes of the last quarter. I think the fans of the Toronto Raptors are just happy they won at home . Call it the Maple Leaf syndrome !
I don't watch the game via the Canadian TV feed . You know why. This afternoon , I tried CBC's telecast of the game. As usual, the Raptors team of Chuck Swirsky and Leo Rautins treated Canadian basketball fans to exaggerations if not misleading statements. Leo said that Moon takes only good shots . He he . If the Raps lost like they did to the Cavs the previous day , I wonder what Leo will say about those consecutive missed long shots in the 4th quarter ? Also , the guy was all praise for Sam Mitchell for the way he turned around the team's fortunes last year. I wonder what the 2 will say when Sam is out of TO ? Ask VC ! Things were noticeably different though. Chuck dropped his 'salami and cheese' line and there is no more constant reference by the 2 to Leo's so called NBA career . After all , a recent SI article belittled Leo's NBA stint by stating that " the Canadian national team touts coach Leo Rautins as a Canadian basketball icon. His NBA career : a whole 32 games as a Philadelphia 76er and the Atlanta Hawks over the 1983-84 and 1984-85 seasons ". The internet made honest people of these two guys. Still, Leo made reference to Moon's finger roll move to the basket as being like those made by his 76er teammate, Dr. J. Teammate for less than a month !

dude, you are so on the ball. i noticed both of those things, but couldn't put two and two together. for all the talk of rautins career, i am shocked it was only 32 games. i thought he had a couple season run, the way he talks and struts. what a fraud. the highlight of yesterdays game for me was chuck not saying salami and cheese, i hope that sticks, i hate that line.

Jamario will get a ton of money in his next contract if he continues to play like in yesterday's game.What will happen to Joey G. now?

If you liked Super Jamario, you'll love Jamario Simpson.
