Default Jermaine O'neal

Think he ain't healthy yet?

He's pickin' it up as of late for those who havnt realized.

5 straight double-doubles (leads the league)

Gamelogs

1 - 23/11/5(assists)
2 - 19/11/2(block shots) and (9 offensive rebounds)
3 - 11/18/2(block shots)
4 - 16/10
5 - 16/17/3(assists)

Shooting good in those 5 games. Avg within 5 of those games

17 ppg, 13.4 rbg, 1 bpg, 1.6 apg

Pretty good if you ask me for a thirthy year old man.

Keep doin' good with this consistansy

Yeah but their record during those 5 games isn't so great

Also, call me when JO finally puts up big numbers in the post-season, then I'll be impressed.

i'm just impressed with his bounce-back from injuries, and coming back nicely.

Also contained d12 for the better part. good signs, could lead to good tingz.

No coincidence that as JO plays more games, gets better adjusted to playing with new teammates, his numbers will get better.

He saves CB4 a lot of wear and tear. Maybe part of the reason Bosh is having a good year so far.

Bosh doesn't have to guard the other team's big man, like Dwight Howard. JO is much more physical and willing to bang. He also helps out (or saves) the Raptors perimeter D by giving mucho lane intimidation.

But looking past the stats, JO has brought a much needed attitude, an edge. He plays like he owns the paint. Not since Charles Oakley has a Raptor team had this...presence.

The signs are pointing to JO having a good year. He's still not there yet. The offence is still not as smooth and polished as it should.

But, to answer the most obvious question --- would the Raptors have made this trade again? In a heartbeat.

He's injury-PRONE. So even if he's healthy now you have to worry about him reinjuring himself.

Stop with the injury talk. It's old and it's annoying.

JO is having a good season so far, because he can play defense all he wants to without needing to score. The problem with the Pacers was that he had to score and defend, but now with Bosh, he can do a bit of both, but more of defense. I don't know where everyone has been the past decade, but JO is a damn good defender.

Default Re: Jermaine O'neal

in those games, bosh has been a monster and JO has been putting up some sick stats yet the Raptors have a very bad record. What does that tell you about this team and the leadership of Bosh and JO?

I know its still very early in the season and i have been saying that in the raps forum all along....but this is something to take notice of and compare it to the rest of the season.

There will always be a period of adjustment anytime you insert a new, significant rotation player.

Not realistic to think it will just click starting game 1. The important thing is the improvement as the game piles on. And improve they MOST DEFINITELY have.

You have to be a really stupid dumba$$ to think JO/Bosh combo isn't working. This is clearly the strength of this team.

It's the back-up PG and the wing positions that are not prime time yet. That's being kind.

The back-up PG spot is horrible. Any wing position sucks, and the SGs suck too... seriously. You got a 3 man team here.

Behind Jose, we don't have an experienced past first PG....thats a big reason why we were losing plus we are lacking a true scorer on the wing who can penetrate..

If he's healthy, great. Maybe JO will think he can get more money on the open market (if he does he's an idiot) and opt out. That would make Toronto very happy. Either way it doesn't matter, because the Raptors are not talented or deep enough to contend.

If Oneal can stay healthy and continue down this path the Raptors are one above average wing player away from being contenders.

With their lack of depth, terrible wing players and JO still being a question mark in the health department I wouldn't put any money on it. But if they can snatch a Crawford or Miller without giving up too much they could potentially become one of the scary teams in the league.

How is that stupid? JO is injury prone, and everyone knows it. I watched the Pacers the last 5 years and for some reason I never saw JO out on the court. He's sitting on the bench, in a suit.
