hes better than graham by a long shot. He should be the first swing off the bench or maybe even start? What does garbageosa play (4 or 3)?

Garbo will likely be the primary backup 3 and 4 next season.

Watch Mitchell make a 15/8 player outta him. Saunders misused him completely in Detroit, but Sam is gonna give him all the freedo, all teh motivation.. and most importantly recognize his strengths and fully capitalize on them.
... unless ofcourse he has a bad attitude and a detriment the sqaud's chemistry, he's gone. Mitchell doesn't care if you've Kobe Bryant skillset.. but if you;re not a total tam player and don't bring a positive attitude with you, you just don't get minutes or playing time.

And no.. He's not better than Graham by a long shot. Graham is just inconsistent, but not a bad player as per say.

I can see Toronto using Delfino as a backup at the 2 though....U think, Dixon is a great player and all but he is small to play a SG and I think when they need to, Delfino will get the playing time...

Graham is very inconsistent, and Delfino is foul prone.....I would saying they are similar...

EVerything that Carlos does, except the defence, Graham is better than him at that. He's the better ball handler, drives to the hoop with more authority, much much better dunker, better shooter as well (better FG%), and yes.. better rebounder as well.... he's just more atheletic and skilled period. The only problem with Graham is that, even after 2 seasons, is still very stiff and not all that comfortable and open on the floor. HIs best days are days when he's just having fun.

from what ive seen of graham, delf is a much better defender, dribbler (could be like a point forward esp under a full press), passer, slasher, shooter. He does occasionally make stupid fouls, but generally due to effort. avg. 3.2 rbs in 16 mins from the 2 Thats tells you hes always going for it. We never used him except as a spot up shooter (which he is alright at). Much better slasher and can finish strong. He will make some poor decisions with his drive but who doesn't?

Well I wanna see Delfino get the same amount of time as Joey...

I have clearly not seen the same games with Graham that you have. When Ive seen him, he looks lost out there and not very good at anything.

Like most players on the bench in the league, he has his spurts, when he pushes the ball, and gets in under the net, he is actually pretty good...
