TORONTO - As far back as his days in Connecticut, when Rudy Gay was brought up in a conversation, the word "potential" often followed.

Gay always was seen as a player who could be a superstar, with the talent to be a perennial fixture at the mid-season NBA all-star game.

That never happened in Memphis, though Gay still usually led that club in scoring and flashed his considerable upside many times each season.
