    Toronto Raptors — Final grade: D+ | Record: 30-48, No. 10 in the East

    Midseason grade: C- | Midseason record: 15-27, No. 11 in the East

    Is Andrea Bargnani still on the roster? (Yes.) Did Bryan Colangelo really trade for Gay thinking he would make them appreciably better? (Yes.) Was Kyle Lowry’s first season in Canada full of more red flags than initially expected? (Yes.) Are there perhaps four contracts on the books that would be worth amnestying if it were legal? (Yes.) Did DeMar DeRozan try to shame John Hollinger for predicting Toronto would win 33 games, only to put up a below-average PER for a team that will win no more than 34 games? (Yes.) Do the Raptors, who are missing the playoffs for the fifth straight season, at least have a lottery pick to look forward to? (No, unless they land in the top three.) Does anyone expect management to answer to the realities behind this silly list of rhetorical questions that could go on all day? (Nope!) Did Terrence Ross win the Slam Dunk Contest? (He sure did, and it wasn’t too bad. Let’s agree to focus on that one.)

              I feel confident in saying I can guarantee BC reads those twitter feeds. No proof. Just a feeling.

                    The @RaptorsMR account frequently responds to negative comments, and this is definitely an article of interest. I would hope they see this and pass it along.

                      D+ is way to low. I'd say C+ considering the crazy up and down season we had, and the horrid start

                        I don't think D+ plus is way to low. In fact I don't see it as low at all. From the start of the season Casey and the organization stated that the goal was playoffs. Even if they get ahead of Philly for the ninth spot, they were never really in playoff contention. (Except, maybe right after the Gay trade until they lost to the Bucks.) Also, how does shitting the bed at the start of the season warrant giving them a better mark? If the score was just for the final 1/3 of the season, then yes it should be higher, but I'm pretty sure that it's for the full season. I tried to find the article, but it wasn't linked and I couldn't find it on their site. If there is a link, would someone post it?

                        EDIT: Never mind I found the article, anyone else can find it HERE

                        I guess the article doesn't explicitly say whether it's for the full year or just from the mid-season on.

                        But yes, this has been a D+ season, IMO.

                        PS: I did however find out, that the Spurs released Stephen Jackson, because he and pop (reportedly) had disagreements about his diminishing role. #whataclown

                          Can someone re-tweet this to Demar DeRozan to show who the real clown is and hopefully he uses this as a motivation to work on his D, ball handling,3 point shooting ,and calling people names when he cant back it up 0.o

                            I would say C+ simply because everyone found out JV isnt a wasye nor a joke, the kid is legit talent at a rare position in todays game. Bad start to end the season respectable playing around 500 ball since Gay acquisition. We Got Rudy Gay on the team for very little, which brings an even better outlook for next season.

                            C+ would have been fair imo D+ is looking at the negatives too much I think but you know there are a TON of negatives.

                              By the text book definition.. C is average, so C+ is slightly above average:
                              http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Grading...tion%29#Canada

                              This team was below average, so D+ makes sense in my opinion. JV prevents this team from becoming an F in my opinion.

                              When you don't make the playoffs and are almost close to luxury tax, and don't have a draft pick (either first or second round), a D+ is actually being lenient.
