Staying Fresh, Basketball, and Mustache

Hello to the small group of faithfuls (or as of now angry group of former faithful due to ridiculous absence)

It has been a long time since I have posted and the reasons vary in their legitimacy. I moved out of the parent's house to live on my own while working as an intern @ RIM in Waterloo. I was really focused on my work for a couple weeks allocating a lot of time and effort into doing well there. As time went on, I began feeling a lot more comfortable and entered a very habitual cycle. Being caught (maybe a bad word since this is my first professional experience and I should be ecstatic, which I am!) in that cycle my mind became (often) devoid of meaningful thought after exiting my work premises. At times, I find myself walking home and totally forgetting where I am - yet I continue walking where I need to go. It is as if my body and mind have become separated.

Well this is not good in my opinion! So I am going to try to put in the extra effort to maintain this thing.

Things have been pretty good in Raptor land in my opinion. I have been very happy with the effort of the Raptors thus far. Here is a short list of the good and bad and the in between.

- After a slow start Amir Johnson has played very well. I would say he has moved from the predicted grossly overpaid into slightly overpaid.
- Reggie Evans has increased his trade value by showing he is not a no dimensional scary looking dude but back to his former status as a 1 dimensional rebounding monster.
- Like I said,the effort!

The Bad
- Andrea Bargnani. Sure he has average 21 PPG, but his other numbers are universally down. Most importantly his already pathetic rebounding numbers have declined further.
- Sonny Weems is doing very well! Okay this is good but I made a bit with a friend that he would average below 15 PPG. He is creeping very close.

- Kleiza is off to an underwhelming start. This would be in bad but I feel like he will pick it up..
- Jarret Jack trade. I like getting Bayless but I worry we will shy away if presented with the opportunity to draft Kyrie Irving. More minutes for Jose Calderon is probably not a good thing but at least it gives him the chance to up his trade value.
- Derozan has done pretty well, not great, but not bad.

Last but not least I am growing a mustache for Movember feel free to donate
