    I mean there's being positive and then there's rationalizing away obvious problems.

    Even without Kyle we should not be getting blown out at home to OKC. Not if we hope to contend. We shouldn't be losing by 15 to the Heat, or be losing at all to the Bucks.

    The team realizes it and I'm glad they had a players only meeting. At least they're recognizing there are problems, which is the first step towards correcting them. I'd be more concerned if they kept excusing the losses on Kyle's absence. This shows pride and professionalism--or at least a step in that direction.
    This! Players meeting is a good thing. It is not healthy or productive to get blown out and go "oh well, kyle will save us"

    We will not go quietly in the night. We will rage against the dying light. We will study every buzzer beater with intensified might, because somethin with the NBA doesn't smell right.

    I just don't understand how, in the middle of a playoff race, you need to have a team meeting about effort. Especially when you have D.C., COJO, IBAKA, PJ and NORM who are all "effort and tough" players. The fck is going on with this team.

    I hate to turn to the coach, but your team losing motivation in a play off race is not a good look.

    Also, there's about 10 other games Casey should be apologizing to fans about.

    This! If you need a team meeting for you to put in effort this late into the season, something is very wrong with the entire team + coaching staff.

    Default Raptors @ Pistons March 17 7:30 SN1 (TV) TSN 1050 (radio)



    You'd think this would be the Raps farewell to the Palace (and all the malice it has seen) but you know the NBA schedule...we're back there in 2 weeks. Let's call it the penultimate game in Auburn Hills.
    Instead of the lineup, I'd like to guess who these guys are..

    “That’s what we’re going to find out, we’re going to find seven or eight guys that are going to come out and compete,”
    -Coach Casey

    But, in lieu of that, the likely starters are...from the Motor City


    (G) (G) (C) (F) (F)

    Assuming our usual starters are included in the "7-8 guys who give a damn" group, we'll have
    Joseph (G)
    Derozan (G)
    Carroll (F)
    Ibaka (F)
    Valanciunas (C)
    (thought the post was already a little too picture heavy)

    Keys to the game. Give a F@#*! and, in honour of today, let's channel the luck of the Irish

    Like the Patrick O'Bryant reference.

    Go Raps!

    Actually, sort of hope we suck the rest of the season so that Masai is forced to make some moves in the off-season.

    JV: "Thank you, Masai"

    Masai: "I know you didn't want to go there,"

    JV: "Nah. When I saw that Drummond and my face together, I was like... Please no"

    Players only meeting only confirms what we have all thought for awhile now....Casey has lost the team.

    Kyle made it clear before the trades and now the team is trying to win in spite of him.
    No it doesn't mean he's lost the team, don't make it try and fit your narrative. Lots of teams have players only meetings.

    JV always owns Drummond, I'm not worried.

    Man the way the Raps botched the 4th last time against Detroit. Can't excuse it with the lack of Tucker and Ibaka

    I love SVG. Calls a timeout 65 seconds in to the game. I wish we had a coach that held his team accountable.
