What a dumb ass trade for the Raptors. They think if they actually get cap room someone is gonna sign with them? Hell I think Bosh is out of there as soon as he gets the chance.

* they are 5th-last in blocks;

* they are 4th in team technicals;

* Jamal Crawford is shooting 40%;
* prized acquisition Quentin Richardson is shooting 35%;
* much-ballyhooed rookie PG Nate Robinson is shooting 40%;
* the Knicks have NO ONE who is averaging even 1.0 block ppg;
* they have only 2 guys averaging a steal a game;
* they have two players (Allan Houston and Anfernee Hardaway) who are making $35 million between them diddling themselves on the bench

Best of all, their record is 14-30....:rolleyes:
