    Yea this loss was the nail in the coffin for me. If you need OG to beat Detroit you have much bigger problems.
    I relish negativity and disappointment. It is not healthy. Somebody buy me a pony.

      So every 16th and 18th pick will crack an NBA rotation in their rookie year? Is that normal? I don’t think so.

      Josh Jackson also is a castoff and he’s getting regular minutes and finally developing.
      on a worst team in the league.

      If the goal is to get a good draft pick then yeah i'm with you play Stanley and Ellenson a lot of minutes

        Yeah, no, you're right. It's impressive. I was referring to your examples of Stanley and Ellenson, specifically, which I don't think is indicative of too much. But yeah, Casey did a terrific job developing talent here and seems to be having a good go in that regard in Detroit this year. I can tip my hat to him there, and I still got much love for Coach Case. (Detroit also has Killian Hayes though, who's not been good when healthy, despite higher expectations. And Saben Lee didn't do much tonight... )

          Define worst? Is it: to have the worst record in the league or to be stuck in the middle with you? I know what Masai said about that.

            Stanley 8th, Ellenson 18th. We also have all-stars on our roster and they don’t. What’s your point?
            Both of them are bust. It happens. What i'm saying is, high draft picks like Stewart and Bey have much better chance of succeeding than undrafted players. There's a reason they went in the 1st round and there's a reason why guys like Davis and Yuta and Thomas and Watson went undrafted. Bey at one point last year was projected to go in the top 10.

              yeah they have worst record? wins don't matter to them. What a bizarre statement man.

                The point being is that we should be blowing teams like that out of the water... easily. Or, we should be tanking and developing players. We’re squarely in no man’s land, without a clear direction how to get out.

                    Just an ugly win, they were walking in mud all game...

                    As poorly constructed this team is after the Giannis/ and Gobert pipe dream....I still think that they either get in to the playoffs outright or winning a play in.

                    However, they will most likely be first round road kill.

                    What I fear the most is that, most especially with Lowry gone...the core will be perennial playoff fodder for a long long time.

                    Unless there is that generational talent out there waiting to be called when the Raptors are in the clock for their pick.

                    Asset management in a trade is the best way to go especially when the core are appreciating in value but are close to their ceilings=Ripe age.

                    Why Adding mediocre pieces to existing mediocre pieces is just poor asset management

                    Depth is overrated when you don’t have a 1A player

                      I just got off the phone with Masai. The Grand plan is to bring back Kawhi and Ibaka this summer. Giannis was just a distraction. Masai had an agreement with Kawhi and ibaka long ago that they would sign here this summer. This is why Masai has been standing pat. What a relief!

                        Anybody still down to make no trades? You are your record. This team is right in the middle of the east, and yes, they are in the middle even when finally healthy. Folks, welcome. To. The. (dun dun dunnnnn)

                          Blame it to that idiot cop for pre-empting Masai’s celebration

                          So we have to give him the benefit of the doubt, he is still in that euphoria phase, for him the clock stopped and we are still in 2019.

                                Gotta stay there for 2-3 years before you are running in place.

                                I do agree that something has to give. They are so thin up front that even having OG out is basically catastrophic. That can’t go on. Not to mention that the guard play outside of the three mainstays has been awful.

                                Regardless, focus now has to be on the core they locked up and how you make that group better next season. This year is, well, what does Jack always sing? Turn out the lights, the party’s over....
