Right now they just need another big man for depth with Bradley, Montross and N'diaye out with injuries.

Not with Davis and McCoy being the only two healthy big-men (and Jerome Williams as SF/PF)

Alston had a great first game last night scoring a team high 17 on 7 of 10 shooting with 4 assists and 5 rebounds. However he did also have 5 turnovers but it was his first game so I'll give him a break about that.

Could he finally be the pure point guard that the raps have been searching for ever since Jackson left? I think so....

Seems you have to top score or pull some bullshit play out of your arse to get on SC.

I don't think there would be much to see. He's not out there throwing the ball off people's heads and what-not. He's just playing normal basketball...he said himself that he had to learn to stop doing that stuff and just make fundamental plays...

Yea but it seems like people think Rafer is out there spinning on his head and doing backflips down the court and Sportscenter refuses to air it. You guys would probably be disappointed if they showed highlights of him running the pick and roll and taking spot-up threes...

He may not be passing the ball off of people's heads but he is still making some pretty nice passes. When I watch him play he reminds me of a more controlled version of Jason Williams (Sac/Memphis).

Skip continues his hot shooting from downtown, hitting 4 of 6 treys, scored 14 pts and dropped 5 dimes in a Raptors loss.

Where has anyone suggested that?

Actually most of us are happy to see him finally find a home in the NBA. It's great to see him playing solid ball.
