The endless source of comedy that is Doug Smith's Toronto Raptors blog has yet another gem today. Mr. Smith thinks Jose Calderon is "not nearly as bad a defender as so many of you think." I guess making opposing point guards look like two-time MVP Steve Nash on offence qualifies as being "not bad" defensively. Even if you're a fan of Numero Ocho, you have to admit he'd probably have trouble keeping a WNBA player in front of him.
TSN's Tim Chisholm weighs in on the emerging point guard issue in Toronto, as well as the impact Jarrett Jack has had on guys like Hedo Turkoglu and Andrea Bargnani.
Which free-agent signing from last offseason might be causing a team to have buyer's remorse? The name Turkoglu seems to come up a lot during SI.com's roundtable.
But I'm confused. Why doesn't Mr. 4th Quarter show up on this NY Times list of clutch performers?
Turkoglu was also part of the decade's worst draft class (although he'd probably be selected second if they had to do it over again).
Being dad has Chris Bosh feeling festive.
