Although, I go around calling Patrick O'bryant "pooh on bricks", after reading the non-annoying part of a Doug Smith Raptors Blog. As seen here http://thestar.blogs.com/raptors/2009/08/a-whole-lot-of-stuff-and-a-pick-for-a-favourite-dancer.html. I wonder why raptors fans want POB shipped out of town?
Most of us think guys like Amir Johnson or Pops Mensah-Bonsu are our saviours, when they have as much potential and athleticism as POB. Infact, you could argue that Pops and Johnson are worse than O' Bryant.
One point would be that Pops Mensah-Bonsu has been let go by the Raptors and POB is still playing for them. Another point is POB was signed by a championship team and was not released. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=79S-a4Aqiw0
Taking a look at O' Bryant's rebounding totals and points. He averaged half of what Pops did in less than half the playing time. Johnson and POB are equally raw and will take time to get out of that stage. O' bryant is less than a year older than Amir Johnson. So, why do fans want O' Bryant shipped out of town?
Although, Demar Derozan will be better than Weems, Johnson, and O' Bryant possibly even combined. DD is still raw and you think he'll be our saviour this year, Bellinelli is a bit raw you think he'll be our saviour this year, Johnson is raw you think he'll be our saviour this year.
Weems and POB are as raw as these guys. Yet, you want them on the first bus to the airport and out of here. They are all young and talented and will all take time to blossom. So, I ask you Raptors fans, give it time.
