Yeah, I think he's ready. And yeah, he's pretty huge. If not Giannis' height, he looks like he has similar reach. Looks more explosive too. Not Giannis level, but still good for his size. Modern day small ball 5.


Honestly, that would be pretty cool. don't know if it is possible or if it would work but it would be a nice story and he does seem to have that perfect small C body to run with our team.

as for Cousins, this team is carefully constructed to have no arrogant or sefish jerks on it who will disrupt the team. if cousins has matured into a genuine pro who knows how to get along with people and listen to coaches etc. - which is entirely possible, i really haven't paid any attention to him in a long time - i could see him being helpful too. but he'd have to be willing to run his ass off because we don't need lumbering Cs. not sure if that is possible either.

He played well last game. And I noticed him laughing and joking with OG and another raptor. So, based on that tiny sample of amateur psychology observation on my part, on TV, I hereby declare that Boogie has changed and is now a good guy. :D

Probably could use him right now? But no.
Organization can be defined as an organized body of people with a particular purpose. Not random.

lmaooo I just came to post the same. Here's another look at it:

Just another reminder that there are many, many players that were physically gifted enough to play in the NBA but too stupid to hang. TD definitely on the top-10 all time dumbest Raps list.

Terrance Davis... exactly what raptors need off the bench

Last three games averaging 25, 6, 3.5 ...

Just watching Open Gym, they were showing a Tampa game where Yuta had 20 and Paul Watson also played well. I thought oh yeah, Watson, 6'6, good shooter couldn't we use him this year in Svi's place. But he's not getting much time in OKC, down in G league a lot. I don't know why he's not better.

Even still I can't help but wonder, wouldn't TD, or Bembry, or Stanley or even Watson be giving us more than anyone on this year's bench, excluding bigs like Boucher and Birch?

Anyone see Suggs' impressive dunk over DeMar the other night?
