    I've got a girlfriend and play a lot of sports. The raptors success still ways heavy on my mood and I quite like it. I just have realistic expectations.

    So you stick with them when they're garbage and over paying for guys like Fields, and now when things are looking up you're splitting? Sounds like some serious attention-whoring.

    I don't even want to waste the energy to make an elaborate post explaining

    1. lowry's impending free agency, looks like we are going to overpay or let him walk for nothing, plus money that must be thrown at jv and ross next year preventing us from having the capspace to sign impact players

    2. mediocre talent. No way to improve through draft, derozan extremely overrated, 1 dimensional. Not a likely chance superstar will be willing to come here based on history of franchises ability to attract talent. Trading for a talented player? Unlikely.

    3.unproven GM masai. All he has shown is that he can get rid of lost causes and get a decent return (melo,bargnani,gay), there is nothing to indicate he can build a contener.

    Basically what I'm saying is I don't see this ending well, and it is extremely frustrating, it's been a blast later guys.

    Stuck in the middle...........*smh*

    If you were a Hawks fan and they went to the 2nd round 6 years in a row and lost you can get pissed about not being good enough to win it all. If you're a Raps fan you should be happy that you might make the playoffs.

    You walk before you run.



    Edit: It won't let me do the start time thing if I embed, just jump to 28 seconds in.

    This thread is hilarious. I understand the frustration that the OP has but I don't think the team is stuck in the middle.. not yet anyway. Perhaps there was a lost opportunity (still an avid tanker at heart) but this team still has lots of potential to become a legit contender.

    To address each of the OP's points:

    Lowry's contract status is unknown of course. But say he does not return.. is that really that bad? He is still a 27 year old PG that had one outstanding year.. will he repeat what he did in a non-contract year? Is he going to be good in say 3 years when JV hits his prime and the Raptors are really ready to contend? I don't think MU will overpay to keep him (and that's the speculation in one of the rumours I've seen). I do think Lowry and his agent will play fair, and MU will be able to give him a good contract. Big test for sure but until its done you can't really react to a perceived outcome this early.

    The team does not have superstars on the roster.. but it can get one (even if they don't draft one). They have pieces. We have seen it happen in the past where a team's superstar wants to leave. Bosh did it. Carmelo did it. James did it. DWilliams did it, etc.. Toronto has the pieces to capitalize if a situation like that opens up. Just be flexible and have your ears opened to the ground. TL/MU want to build a winner, and I believe they will. The worse contracts on the books are Fields and Hayes and both are expiring next year. JV/Ross don't get their extension until 2016 (not after next year).. and by then they may not even be on the roster.

    As for MU being unproven.. well so what? He's not Bryan Colangelo or Rob Babcock. That's really all that's important. He is a young guy with lots of energy and has a background in scouting. He's made some nice sweet deals already and there is an opportunity for him to build a good team especially when he has a guy like Lieweke leading the charge.

    The only problem with this analogy, is that the 76'ers traded Jrue for draft picks. If they trade Demar for an established young player, you might not fetch as much as DD's on that $9 million dollar deal, which is reasonable but might not be enough to get a young star in return and probably will not be able to get a young up and comer on his rookie deal due to salary mismatches.

    If they trade him for picks like what 76ers did with Jrue then why were you trying at all this year to compete? You should have bottomed out as soon as possible if that was the goal.
    True.

    I personally think it was attempted.

    Unfortunately they started winning and you have to play hand dealt.

    Maybe Lowry and DD return two high picks this year on draft night/July 1st, another next year, and 2015 draft is the one Raps aim to be high in.

    I don't know of course, just throwing it out there.

    Possibilities are endless.

    Wouldn't be surprised to see Akash take his talent to South Beach LOL! Most Heat fans are bandwagoners.

    Did you read his original post? HE said he was leaving.
    lol, though I disagree with much of his view of the state of the team, that's what makes his ranting so humourous/entertaining. he needed to vent again I guess.
