Even if the Timofey Mozgov/Jonas Valanciunas center battle didn't bring back memories of Russell and Chamberlain, or even Dave Cowens and Tom Boerwinkle, I loved watching the guy who nearly derailed the Carmelo deal before realizing his meaninglessbackupbigmanian destiny in Denver (Mozgov) outplaying the top-five lottery pick that Toronto stashed away last summer (Valanciunas). On the bright side for Raptors fans …1. Even if Valanciunas doesn't seem like he knows where to go or what to do, and even if his pick-and-roll defense could only be described as calamitous, he's only 20 AND he hustles. So there's hope.
Even if Tristan Thompson doesn't seem like he knows where to go or what to do, and even if his pick-and-roll defense could only be described as calamitous,

(After a few more trades he ended up back in Miami.) How do the Raptors get that for Bosh and we got a pile of shit for LBJ? They were both gun to the head S&Ts, why would Toronto get the best asset in the deal?
