“The first six months when I entered to Maryland I couldn’t take regular classes,” says Vasquez, who played prep school basketball after coming from Venezuela. “There’s 35,000 students going to Maryland, and I was taking English as a second language with three or four other guys — they were from the Middle East, Asian, and there was me. Every time I went back to the locker room my teammates were like, ‘I was in this class, and there were 100 people in this class, and this pretty girl,’ and that, and I was like, in class with three or four guys, and I was frustrated. For a second I thought about playing overseas.” Toronto Star

“The Duke fans, being very clever, they prepared things to say in Spanish to Greivis, and they had sheets so the kids who didn’t speak Spanish could say the same thing,” says Williams. “So at the end of one game, we win the game, and the one that sealed it, Greivis makes one of his crazy drives with about 40 seconds left, puts us up eight.

Heard Dwane say after the game that they had a play set up out of a previous timeout, a high screen-roll they had run a possession or two before and that may not be their bread and butter go-to play (that’d be DeRozan curling off a side screen or taking a handoff from Amir Johnson on the left wing) but at least it’s something that might get the defence moving, create some sort of mismatch and get a good look. But then to hear post-game interviews with the players and listen to at least one of them (Amir) suggest that there was nothing called speaks to a missed communication that they simply can’t have.

Josh Lewenberg: Lowry has already been ruled out for tonight's game vs CHI. No surprise there. Wouldn't expect to see him again in March, at the minimum Twitter @JLew1050

Jackson is considering bringing Bargnani back next season if he can get a one-year deal at a good price. There have been scouts at recent Knicks games evaluating their free-agent talent, and Bargnani is being scrutinized. One team to exclude is Toronto. President Masai Ujiri shipped Bargnani to the Knicks days before the 2013 draft for a collection of draft picks and the Raptors’ benefit was addition by subtraction. New York Post

What isn’t as clear: What does Wiggins want going forward? He left at least one hint at the ACC that he wouldn’t mind returning one day as a Raptor. He said it privately, not publicly. But he said it. One side of the story that hasn’t been well-explained: His parents, Mitchell and Marita, have moved from their Vaughan residence to Minnesota. It’s not uncommon for parents of teenage phenoms to want to remain in close proximity to their children. The parents’ move doesn’t indicate that Wiggins will play long-term with the Timberwolves. This is only Wiggins’ rookie year in the NBA. This situation — and a possible return home in the future — will continue to be discussed, officially and unofficially, over the next several years.

Nasty break-up and all, Air Canada is the best thing that ever happened to the Toronto Raptors.
