Jermaine a Raptor, finally

The Raps finally announced their deal to bring in Jermaine O’Neal. Some people don’t like this move: the kid has a wonky knee and brings plenty of baggage from Indianapolis. But hey, who wouldn’t want out of that hornet’s nest? So good luck to guard T.J. Ford and centre Rasho Nesterovic, who go to Indy in exchange. They’ll need it.

Toronto also re-signed Jose Calderon, an important development that will be lost in all the Jer-mania.
