Imagine we had traded Siakam for RHJ a few years back like some of the posters here wanted.

By the way, I love the confidence Nurse seems to have built up when speaking, after winning the chip.

The defense has looked decent with both of them on. What's Nurse smoking?

They were picked up for their defense and it's not showing enough, that's why Detroit and BK let them go. :lol:

Good.

These guys suck, and I've never had them pencilled into our rotation nor do we even need to have them in the rotation.

Good for Nurse - if there's one thing this team has to be this year, it's a juggernaut defensive team.

Love the gloves-off response. The sooner these things get addressed - and addressed bluntly - the sooner they're likely to 'get it'.

This is how a championship coach treats players - no kids gloves. Do it our way - the way we've won - or you won't play period.

We’ve set a championship standard on Defense..

If we want to be an elite team this season we need to put forth a suffocating defense.

If these two players who have been huge offensive negatives thus far aren’t trying on that end then Nurse is right that they shouldn’t expect minutes.

With Johnson, yes, but RHJ has been decent in his career, especially on the defensive end. They have a better roster where he's just a second unit guy at best for the Raptors

Gasol - Boucher - Hernandez
Ibaka - OG
Siakam - Norm
Lowry - McCaw - Thomas
Fred - Davis

All full. No need for these guys.

How these guys respond both publicly and in private will tell me what their character is all about. This is a great test for both of them. Very curious to see how this plays out.

Love this. Nurse is a championship coach and this is the defending world champions Toronto Raptors; you have to bring your A game and absolute focus.

Love this. These two have basically started out as third stringers in preseason games, which means there were likely some bad signs showing up even in practice. Seems like the cold hard truth was needed.
