JO and Bosh are playing well but with all that being said they are still middle of the pack in the east probably another 1st round exit unless they makes changes at the wings or to the bench.

Most of the people in this thread are complete morons. JO's "health" isn't going to be decided in 5 games. He needs to play close to 80 games before he'll shed that fragile tag he has.

Same with Dwayne Wade. Playing for 5 games doesn't mean you're healthy. In fact, doesn't Wade have an ankle problem now?

Wait 'til the end of the season before you open your mouth about how healthy he is.

Also, much of his problems in Indy had a lot to do with his attitude I think. Lets see how long he plays in Toronto before he starts his pouting routine if they don't win.

It could be years before the immediate impact of his arrival is felt, whether positive or negative. Hell, Bosh could leave in 2 years. Toronto hasn't exactly done a good job of keeping their superstars.

And TJ Ford seems to be doing well in Indy.

Anyways, I haven't seen him play yet this season, but just from watching the box scores, I don't think I've yet see Bosh and O'Neal both show up offensively in the same game. I don't know if that's a good thing or bad thing. Probably not real good, because their back court doesn't seem to have the weapons to score a lot, so they will need both of these guys in the post.

Didn't Biedrins have like 10 in a row? Or do you mean he has the longest current streak?

I think Biedrins had the most consecutive double doubles this season.

Current streak.

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?

Its says absolutely nothing about their leadership. It says that the Raptors supporting cast is awful and these two (more specifically Bosh) has to beast every single night just for the Raptors to have a chance at winning. Outside of Bosh, O'Neal and Calderon, no Raptor player is starting caliber and this hurts them. You need talent to win in this league and outside of these three players, the Raptors are severely lacking in the talent department.

Its not Bosh and O'Neal's fault that Calderon was hurt for 2 games, Parker was shooting something like 39%, Moon has been abysmal this season, Bargnani has been wildly inconsistent and Kapono has suddenly thought he can create his own shot. Outside of Calderon, Bosh and O'Neal this just is not a very good team.

I can't believe this thread was made just yesterday. Danumber88, I hope you realize that you jinxed JO and you should take full responsibility for his injury.

as a nets fan, sorry for the sean williams play. i don't think he meant to injure if that's any excuse.

but beyond that, i've been saying for many months that i didn't think the JON trade was going to work. the dude has too much wear-and-tear on his body from too many years playing out of position. plus, he's a bit injury-prone anyway and is around that age when players start to decline. IMO he was going to get injured down the road no matter who he played.

This injury has nothing to do with wear and tear or previous injuries... he just fell awkwardly on a flagrant. Same injury would have happened to anyone, regardless of injury history.

Toronto luckily has just 2 years of his contract to worry about.
