A Calming Time

After a few days to ponder these last moves by Colangelo I am still where I last was, but more hopeful that he knows something I don't. Colange clearly thinks he's finding the next Boris Diaw here (talented guy buried on the bench and given the wrong role). Let's hope he's right.

Let's stretch things for a second and consider Bosh is a stud. T.J. Ford has all-star potential and now you need a third. If you find someone who turns into that third guy you have a great nucleus and now these other athletic pieces start to make more sense.

However, we are out of money to get purchase that other real option. We are tying up all our cash in these mid range contracts, hoping one of them turns out to be that guy. Can Bargnani step in and start jacking the ball consistently right away, if ever? Will Parker find his Euro groove? Does the Salmons swim through the lane like he's headed upstream?

Wait and see is the new way to be. The only moves we'll see from here till day 1 look like the Garbage Man (Porn Star) signing, and potentially Urokacrusher to replace the "POP".

It's too soon to predecit what the outcome will be, but like you I'm nervous as hell too. Considering BC's track record I'll give him the benefit of the doubt and trust that he knows what's he's doing.

BTW TVC, love your blog site. Would you mind if I posted it over at a Toronto Raptors message board? It's a site called EBS Sports. (

Let me know via e-mail if you have any problems with that.
