    Toronto Raptors Report Week 14: Is Amir Johnson the Raptors' Top Player? | Bleacher Report

    He doesn't have a ton of competition on that team, but it's still a big leap from coming off the bench at the beginning of the season. His contract was pointed out in many articles back then as foolish.

    It's so sad that we let this guy go for virtually NOTHING. Even if he would have never developed his Offensive game to the point of today, he was our BEST on-ball defender. That alone should have been enough to want to keep him. I'd trade 4 Ben Gordons for 1 Afflac.:(

    Update on Will Blalock's stats in the Aussie league.

    27 min
    10.8 pts
    3.2 reb
    3.4 ast

    and count 'em - 15 treys on the season (25 games) at 29%. Remember that the 3pt line is the FIBA one - slightly closer than NBA.

    I'm signing up. Looks like you have to buy 5 $2 tickets. I guess it sounds better than buying 1 $10 ticket.

    Either way, it seems a good cause, and it would be real cool to have that Rasheed belt... or Darko's ring.

    You could also win some game tickets and airfare.

    Nice prizes, Darko!

    Go figure the best thing Darko has done this year, might be to sell off his legacy.

    Because he's the hero the NBA deserves, but not the one it needs right now. So, we'll taunt him, because he can take it. Because he's not our hero. He's a silent guardian. A watchful protector. A Darko Knight.

    I never thought of Darko as the batman, but I see it clearly now!

    Was flipping through channels and watched Street Ball hoops for a minute. Cedric Ceballos had 46 points for one of the street ball teams. Some guys just don't know when to call it quits. :)

    I've been hoping that the Bulls would make a run at Afflalo this off season.

    This article pretty much shuts down that idea. They think he's going to get $8-10M.

    Arron Afflalo a good fit for Chicago Bulls, but not attainable - Chicago Bulls Talk

    I didn't realize the Bulls did that with Reddick last year. Pretty interesting play if you could just do it to drive up the contracts of your competitors.

    I really wish we could just somehow turn in Rip and get Afflalo back for the same price.

    I wish Kooster the best of luck.
    Dude was dealt a bad hand in Detroit and he dealt with that bad hand badly.
