  1. Thad Young to me is the most underrated player on this team. Don't think we win any of the last two games without him. Was shocked that Nurse had him riding the bench for the first couple of games. As he's just the perfect veteran player who's always gonna be doing the little things to help a team win a game. Yea he isn't gonna light it up in terms of scoring. But you know he's always gonna play within himself never try to do to much. He always knows when he has a smaller or young defender who he knows he can take advantage of down low to get some easy points. Is always making a bunch of nice passes to set others up. Is always gonna be playing some very solid defense. And is gonna crash the boards on offense and give the Raptors extra chances. Even when Precious and Pascal come back he should continue to be one of the forwards to come off of the bench and get 15 to 20mins a game. Much rather see him on the floor than Koloko who no offense to him as he's young and will get better in the coming years. But right now he really doesn't offer a whole lot. Only thing he does better than Thad is protect the rim. Thad is the better on the ball defender and their impact on the offensive end is night and day. As Koloko is extremely limited on that side. All he can offer is pretty much setting screens which Thad can also do. And other than that role to the basket and get an easy bucket if nobody rotates.

    To me once the team is healthy the bench rotation should be Banton, Porter, Boucher, Thad and Precious. Send Koloko down to the 905 once they get healthy to allow him to work on the area's of the game he needs to get better at.

  2. I know we gotta let Koloko develop, but please have Thaddeus start over him. Look at what he’s done as a starter with more minutes. Doing the dirty work to get us the win. Shoutsout to OG for hoopin hoopin too.

  3. Alot of weird highlights this game where someone misses a shot, rebounds, and then it cuts away. Or that fred 3 pointer where it showed everything leading up to the shot and then cut the shot itself lol.

    Someone gotta double check these highlights before posting.
