    That the change was this drastic, this fast - does surprise/delight me a bit.

    Trying not to over think the big picture too much.

    Step 1: Watch my favourite basketball team play
    Step 2: Hope it is enjoyable to watch
    Step 3: Hope they win

    The intent on Step 3 is up to Masai, but as long as Step 1 and 2 are possible - i'm good.
    Step 3 should be to lose but everything else I'm with you on

    Yeah Masai knows if this team stays together they will be stuck in mediocrity and he knows that is not an option I believe he will change up this roster soon

    Masai better do something quick!

    Players are starting to believe it. Last thing you want in a tank is team that believe they should win games. All NBA players are talented but once they get confidence it elevates them.

    Don't let this snowball get momentum.

    Make no mistake:

    What they are really saying here is "Rudy Gay suuuuuucks"
    Pretty much says how Rudy gay can single handedly destroy a teams offensive flow

    Raptors on the Rise?

    Apparently NBA.com thinks that Raptors are on the up and up. Not sure how i feel about this

    They walked through an unmarked door last week, assuming it was another flight of stairs to take them down, only to realize too late they’d stepped onto an elevator headed up.
    Toronto’s decision to trade highly paid scoring forward Rudy Gay, as well as to shop point guard Kyle Lowry, sprang from general manager Masai Ujiri‘s newness to the situation this season and an eye to the future in terms of cap space and roster flexibility. But the present has perked up considerably, with today looking pretty good regardless of tomorrow.
    The Raptors’ smackdown Saturday of a beleaguered Bulls team did more than demonstrate that too many unfamiliar faces is a better problem to have than too few healthy bodies. It left Toronto with a 3-1 mark since Gay played his last game for the team and, at 9-13, looking downright viable as an Atlantic Division contender and Eastern Conference playoff possibility.
    Greivis Vasquez, Patrick Patterson and John Salmons – have done well off the bench. In two games, they have combined to average 23 points on 16 of 34 shots (47.1 percent). Gay for the Raptors this season: 19.4 points on 38.8 percent shooting.

    From a pro-tanker's POV, I'm not worried about the current winning. Masai trades any one player and this team is toast.
    Exactly!

    Stop thinking in absolutes.

    We both agree what we've seen means nothing - wouldn't an open mind be wise then?
    Open mind to what? Being an average playoff team that loses every year in the first round? Like the Bucks, Jazz, 76ers, and Hawks the last couple years? You don't seem to realize that the worst place to be is not worst of the NBA. It's in purgatory where you make playoffs, but it does mean anything cuz you just get swept in the first round! Which is why the Bucks, Jazz, and 76ers have not chose to tank. Cuz they weren't going anywhere with their previous roster!
