Raptors Below Standard !

Mediocre . That's the word to describe the current Raptors team. I've repeatedly said it before and now it becomes obviously clear. GM Bryan Colangelo refused to shake the line up before the trade deadline and now it's too late to make it competitive. Here are what's in store for the team :

1. Another Atlantic Division championship is but a dream. Maybe , MLSE should place an asterisk to last year's accomplishment.
2. No 50 wins this year . Homer Chuck will have to eat his words with the usual the salami and cheese sandwich . What's up with that ?
3. 1st round casualty of the playoffs especially if the team falls to the 7th or 8th place. The team is now tied with the Sixers for 6th place. That is an omen of bad things to come. Ya know , Sixers at 6th !

The game versus the Denver Nuggets which the Raptors lost , 100-109 , proved also that Chris Bosh is not prime time yet. Against Denver's Kenyon Martin's tough defense , he had a hard time making a basket. Was Bosh's meltdown in the last few minutes of the game because he was reminded of Mickey Moore by K Mart's tattoos ? CB4 ' called ' his fellow Raptors out after the game. I would rather that he call 911 instead. That's the thing you do in Denver (or Toronto) when you are dead ! And the Raps are as dead as the Maple Leafs. As to the 7 footer Andrea Bargnani , his 3 point shots went south. Perhaps to the 6'3'' Stephen Curry , the son of former Raptor Dell Curry . Wait, what about Sam's comment that ' since I've been here we have'nt had a player we can iso (isolation with ) the basketball '. Huh ? Wrong . Sam coached VC before the powers-that-be decided to jettisoned the then Raps' iso King . Sam basically admitted that Bosh does'nt meet the standard of a go to guy. Bosh is simply not ISO certified !

Hi, Coach.

Some interesting insights on your part.

1) Are you being serious when you say that you are "a full-time basketball analyst"?

2) If you ask Sam Mitchell what exactly he meant by his "Iso" remarks, there's a good chance he will tell you that: (a) He did mention the fact that Vince Carter was on his team, initally (i.e. for a "short while there"); and, (b) His reference was to a player that a team can "Iso on the wing" because attacking the basket off the dribble in either direction against any size defender is an easy task, given this player's skill set. For example, Sam Mitchell was not talking about a player like Tim Duncan who the Spurs can Iso in the Post but not on the perimeter.
