Correct me if I'm wrong but doesn't the Raptors have room for a Mid Level Exception? As much as I dislike the Raps, AI/Bosh/Hedo trio can work out. I know they have Calderon but I choose AI over him any day lol.

AI has been one of my favorite and still is so it sucks that his career has gone down to this at only age 33. I still say he should just go back to Philly!!!!

Wasn't their mid-level exception used to sign Jarret Jack? Chances of A.I. coming in to T.O. is really low. With Calderon and Jack and Ukic, the Raps already have their PG's in line. It's kind of unfortunate how A.I.'s career is going down the drain, but I think he can have success if he begins to realize he just isn't that explosive scoring threat as he once was. Oh and he'll more than likely have to accept the role of 6th man.

his career has only been shot down in the past year with Detroit, he is a diva

you'll take AI over Calderon? then you're headed for the lottery again, which is not a bad idea next year

You'll actually take Calderon over AI? even for 1 year? I'm out of words..

I forgot about J.Jack so who knows how much cap they have left..

But imagine AI in TO.. lol..wow..

AI/Jack/Hedo/Bosh/Bargnani/Belinelli/Calderon/Nesterovic/Wright/DeRozan/Bonsu... hahaha pretty darn solid team in the east...

isnt calderon underated ?

anyways A.I is more of a shooting guard then a point. So inorder to make him a threat he has to take lots of shots for the raps. And the raps already signed hedo. So I dont see that working out .

My bet is he goes to charlotte.

Extremely. I think a lot of people are forgetting that he had the lowest assist-to-turnover ratio just two years ago. Last year was a forgettable season for everyone on the Raptors team, but with all these options I'm expecting the Calderon we saw back when the Raps made the playoffs!

Well Hedo's gonna have a much bigger role in T.O. (and hence, much larger expectations). And well, he's going to have to carry the team in the future cause frankly (as much as I HATE admitting this), Bosh probably won't be back after next season. Even if Mr. Colangelo is doing everything he can to build a great supporting cast for Bosh!

"Practice? We're talking about practice here!"

AI - no thank you!

Brian Colangelo has done a pretty good job this off-season. If he thinks Bosh is going to walk, he will probably do a S&T to get comparable talent back

I've been saying to all my friends that A.I. back to philly would be great since they lost miller. Hedo to toronto is a great move for him cuz he wants a bigger role and yeah with Bosh probably not staying in toronto then Hedo can be their main guy or one of their main guys. Man I can't wait for the season to start. I wanna see how good the lakers will be with ron ron

Toronto is a boring team to watch..I notice that they try to play it safe when they have the lead causing them to lose the game at the end.. Someone should tell them that this is not hockey and you can't play a defensive shutdown game....

I'll be happy to see AI in philly and finish the career there.. I mean, he's cheap now! how can you go wrong with that.

As for the lakers....they replaced Ariza with a better defender...better scorer and for the same salary... Fisher/Kobe/Artest/Gasol/Bynum + Odom and crew.... if it all works out, I will predict Lakers vs Celtics final... and get the revenge!!

Haha reminds you of the Canucks during this years postseason when they tried that defensive approach and ended up losing the game (and eventually the series)! I've been watching the Raptors for at least 6 years or so now, and I mean the excitement level will never be like that of the Phoenix Suns (but then again, no team is that fun to watch). A huge problem with the Raptors is that they've always failed to have that guy who could step it up in the final minutes to finish the game for them, cause boring as they may seem to be, a lot of the Raptors games are always closely contested.

Yeah, thats my early season prediction as well. I think the Lakers are almost a shoe-in to make it back to the Finals, seeing as how no one else in the West made any huge dramatic changes that can make them contend with the Lakers. And as for the Celtics, they added a real presence in 'Sheed, and as long as K.G. recovers from his knee injury, they'll be a force to be reckoned with in the East!

Just watched the press conference for AI to memphis. I think him and mayo in the backcourt will be deadly. He'll help out the girzz for sure

Just heard about this too. I also think that a combo of AI/Mayo/Gay will be good.

I still hope he doesn't finish his career in Memphis as I want to see him win a ring...wish him all the best and stay healthy

I predict they will make the playoffs but will be knocked out in the first/2nd round.. That's if they all stay healthy...I enjoy cheering for iverson but I hate the fact that it will be Heisley's team!!!!!!

AI/Mayo/Gay/Randolph/Gasol NOT too shabby of a team... I mean, why couldn't we have this lineup when they were here... instead we had a line of Bibby/Dickerson/Reef/Harrington/Reeves LOL

I personally think getting AI is a bad move for the Grizz. Yes he might boost the ticket sales a bit more and he was signed for cheap all because it was Heisley running the show. So basically it points to him being a cheap ass and just wants to reap the rewards of ticket sales while paying minimal for a still-impact player simply because no other contender wanted AI's ego.
AI/Mayo/Gay and even Z-Bo are ALL shoot-first ballhogs it should be interesting to see the chemistry on the floor this season ... Gasol is definitely gonna get a huge rebound stat boost with so many clunkers from those guys! (NBA Fantasy owners look out)

I thought this was a good move by the Grizzlies.. Financially and On court performance. They were not going anywhere with Conley just yet as he's still young so why not bring in AI for cheap and he can score 20+ easily...and he's much more determined to prove something this year so if he stays healthy, I expect a big year from him...

If you guys don't think they can be a playoff team, I don't know what you guys want haha...

Wouldnt be surpised if they try to trade him before the deadline this season.

C- Thabeet ( sp? )
PF - Gasol
SF - Gay
SG - Mayo / Iverson
PG - Mayo / Iverson

My guess for their starting lineup

Uhh, why would you put Thabeet over Randolph? I hope the grizzlies aren't stupid enough to put a 13million guy or something as 6th man...if so, they deserve to lose hahaha.
