:crazy:

at first it sounds crazy..but then you think about that game 6..those two closed out that game like they were the superstars of the team..the nerve of them :lol: .
I know it is preseason FVV almost looked like the number one option against Brooklyn..the only one able to J off the dribble..Kingsway might be on to something with all due respect to Kyle&Mark

He's absolutely wrong until Fvv can prove to run an offense as well as Lowry. There's really no debate. People were saying the same things last season when they wanted to trade Lowry and let Fvv start. We saw what happened during the season.

Stop making conclusions based on preseason games, the sample size is too small and players arent trying.

“They were making shots tonight,” Irving said. “You’ve got to give them credit. Even one of their — I think Boucher came in the game, and I think he shoots with two hands. When he starts hitting 3s at the end of the game and Thomas — but they had a great rhythm.


I can remember posting about this when everyone was all about Boucher two years ago. Somehow the shot works, and now he’s probably our 7th or 8th best player. Hopefully the two handed thing stays on the scouting report until at least New Years and he gets nothing but wide open looks because he’ll knock em down.

If Matt Thomas puts up a 30 point game I will not be surprised.

I just don't see him getting enough attempts to ever reach it. But who knows, with his current efficacy he only needs 14 shots

guys like Lebron and Durant do their homework. Every time they talk in interviews about the raptors, they pretty much know them from top to bottom and never seem surprised when guys like og or fred ball out against them.

Yeah, LOL Durant. Who's that? (talking about Thomas after that smooth as silk 3). Then earlier praises Freddie and Siakam. All this after saying earlier in the season the Raptors never should have won the NBA title last year and will never do so again! Discovery is a bit*h!!!

I hope to hell that the Raps are running constant shooting drills where Thomas is fed the ball while trainers are running at him from different angles. If he can improve his catch/release he'll be great for us. He looks indecisive on those plays where someone's closing on him and its tight. He's got lots of time to learn. But he needs to figure out when he has enough time and when he doesn't. So far...he's probably been a little too conservative. He's passed up some shots that he probably had enough space for.
