Let's grade our players, and offer some comments.
L. Barbosa --> B+ : consistent & effective
A. Bargnani --> B : mark will be higher next semester, we hope
J. Calderon --> B : reliable & hard-working; not likely to improve his mark
J. Bayless --> C+ : patience needed; increased signs of maturity
J. Johnson --> C+ : strong without the ball; weak with it
E. Davis --> C : a gamer who's slowly figuring it out; not the most gifted athlete, & tends to panic
L. Kleiza --> C- : 1 good game, 3 bad ones; good candidate for transfer to another school
D. DeRozan --> C- : chews up the minutes, but shooting woes are serious drawback
A. Johnson --> D : backsliding; is his head fully in the game?
A. Gray --> D : the epitome of a backup centre; below average in all skills
G. Forbes --> D- : needs a LOT of remedial work
A. Carter --> D- : presumably a good locker-room guy, 'cause he's not a good court guy
R. Butler --> F : "spirit willing but flesh weak"; time to leave school
J. Magloire --> F : sleeping in the back of the class consistently; why is he here?
S. Alabi --> inc. : no data on which to base a grade
