Man, he's one of favs when he was playing. I liked his toughness and his team game. And I liked that he was an enforcer in the lockeroom. But as time goes on, I read more and more stories about what an unyielding SOB he is and i've grown to despise his arrogance and inflexibility. The fact that Babcock, their GM seems intimidated by him, makes me dislike him and the Raptors organization even more. This latest story was the last straw for me:
I think everyone can pretty much agree that Raphael Araujo is a big, doughy, cluless, stiff. He seems to be a sensitive, great guy, but he's no ball player. Why they don't sit him down and let a hungry, agressive player have his shot is beyond me.
His allocation of playing time is weird and counter productive. His answer to everything is to be gruff & insulting. Anyone else notice what a world class jerk he's turned out to be?
