Week 6: Question of the Week

Which team will benefit more from the Toronto Raptors-Miami Heat trade?

In case you missed it, the Toronto Raptors sent Jermaine O'Neal and Jamario Moon to the Miami Heat for Shawn Marion and Marcus Banks. It may be a little premature to say which team is better off, but I think the Toronto Raptors are going to benefit more. The Raptors get rid of one of their slowest and most injury-prone players for a quick wingman that can run-and-gun with the best of them. Shawn Marion is a perfect fit for the Raptors because they are better as a run-and-gun team and Marion is a better player when he plays that type of offense. Marion is a natural small forward, but can play power forward when Chris Bosh plays center. The Raptors will be one of the fastest, if not the fastest, team in the East; especially with Jose Calderon running the offense. Not to mention that Jose Calderon now has a solid back-up in Marcus Banks.
