Toronto Raptors Roster Report 2008-04-30

Toronto Raptors Roster Report 2008-04-30
ROTATION: Starters -- Point guard T.J. Ford, Shooting guard Anthony Parker, Small forward Jamario Moon, Power forward Andrea Bargnani, Center Chris Bosh. Bench -- Center Rasho Nesterovic, Forward/Guard Carlos Delfino, Guard Jose Calderon, Center Primoz Brezec, Forward/Center Kris Humphries, Forward Jason Kapono, Forward Joey Graham.


--G T.J. Ford watched the Raptors' season end from a seat on the bench. The player once thought to be an integral part of the franchise's long-term future was reduced to being a spectator.

"I want to be back," said Ford, who played 24 minutes of the season-ending 102-92 loss to the Orlando Magic. "I never said anything about wanting to leave."

--F Jamario Moon used the pool at the Raptors' high-end downtown hotel for rehabilitation purposes rather than recreational ones. "I just did some defensive slides and some leg swings against the water and after I got out, it felt pretty fine." Is the native of Alabama a good swimmer? "Like a rock," he said. "A little bit, I'm not a fish but I can swim a little bit."

--C Andrea Bargnani's offensive contribution in the biggest game of the Raptors season was four points on four measly shots, a far cry from the role everyone envisioned for the former first overall draft pick. "He didn't shoot the ball as well as he would have liked and we would have liked (but we) felt like he grew up a little bit," said coach Sam Mitchell. "He had to play against this young man every night, Dwight (Howard), and he competed and he battled and he didn't hang his head down."
