Man, is this list quiet

There is no way to spin this into something good.  Johnson is absolutely no
better than what we have, not an upgrade in any way.  Not a C, not a good
rebounder, etc.  Look at Bass's stats last year and Johnson's, they are the
same guys and we paid $12 million to not upgrade our team!

AJ is decent player but too much money. And not 7 feet tall and not a fit
age wise. When these kids might jell into something he'll be past his
usefulness. Just read article stating he's probably the starting center for
the team to start season. 6'9" starting center. WTF, our center is same
height as Lebron. Only chance we have is if rules committee allows players
under 6 feet to punch big guys in the balls when going for rebound.  Even
then not sure it will help. This green eyed optimist is very depressed. Do
like the Jerebco resigning however.

> I'm bummed about this Amir Johnson signing, not just because he's
underwhelming but because it also seems way too rich given his limitations
(Scalabrine 2, Electric Boogaloo?). But, because I'd imagine everybody feels
that way, I thought I'd at least look on the bright side and share this blog
post on how much he added to the Craptors ... er, Raptors:
> Also, there's a lot of weird stuff out there about just how tall he is;
some reports have him at 6'11, although I guess he's officially listed at
6'9. I read that he's got a wingspan between 6'11 and 7'2ish, but I haven't
found anything definitive.

for Monroe.
