I dont know why but I am going with the wizards yeah they have wall and young they also have some serious headcases on their team.
“We have better talent. We have more talent. We have better shooters,” Casey said. “(Raptors president and general manager Bryan Colangelo) and (executive vice president of basketball operations Ed Stefanski) did a great job of bringing in shooters for us this coming year which was our weak point.
Despite Colangelo and Casey insisting that Calderon could start for the Raptors this season if that is best for the team, this possibility just doesn’t mesh with Colangelo repeatedly calling Calderon his best trade asset over and over again. The Raptors acquired Lowry to start as part of the team’s ongoing culture change and Calderon will be a great second-unit guy for as long as he remains in Toronto.
“I watched a lot of tape of Houston and Kyle and (Goran) Dragic played a lot of minutes together and coexisted very well together, so that is something we are going to look at in training camp because (Lowry and Calderon) are two of our best players, not only our best point guards, but two of our best players. I think that it is up to us to make sure we know situations where we can put them on the court together.
“Ed is an excellent offensive rebounder, one of the best. He has a knack for being around the ball. Amir worked on his shot this summer. Amir is one of our best rim runners, running the floor. He gives us that presence, which along with Valanciunas, opens up the floor for our three-point shooters and also our passers.”
“In a couple of weeks we will give (each player) three cards, one for the locker, one for the pocket and one for their agent in case they forget and lose one of them. I really believe that role acceptance and the role that you play on a team is huge and I put a big emphasis on that. We’ll get those laminated cards out pretty soon.”
“For the most par, our defense has been great and that’s been the best part about camp,” Griffin said.
Of the 30 teams in the league, certainly a high percentage feel the same way, but the Clippers’ combination of athleticism, veteran know-how and sheer number of quality players is impressive.
