    ....almost everything everyone’s been complaining about is mostly being worked out this season.
    Boom. Nailed it.

    Hard to believe.

    Casey, not stupid.

    Demarr shooting threes, reducing mid range shots, passing the ball

    Assist rate up

    Double All Stars again

    Minutes reduction for all main players lending hope for an injury free post season roster

    Got a small forward keeper

    JV more mobile and being used effectively

    Younger players being developed and showing glimpses of excellence

    Total team salary verging on manageable

    Negatives:

    Mascot Raptor is not performing up to snuff and is shown a lot less in game time video slots.

    Matt and Leo

    Have no fear Skywalker, I won't take my entertaining talents anywhere else. No plans on getting banned, no being wooed by other forums, and definitely not becoming a turncoat Chicago Bulls fan. Nope. all KeonClark, all the time. Drink it in people.
    This shot of tequila's for you Keon

    My point was that the board is dead, not the thread. I just posted it in here because it's the "we're good, why aren't they/we talking about it" thread.

    The main flaw is that the genesis of this thread was to collate the emerging stories about "how the Raptors are good and you didn't know about it". There's no natural lead to the I'm right/ No, I'm right dribble of posts that are the lifeblood of many threads. There's that, and also, the secret is out

    The forum is also just less active than ever before since I joined. I blame reddit

    Maybe too many of us are making flawless posts that just can't be argued.
    Both distinct possibiities.. but with the banning of contrarian posters such as the snootch, happy ?, combined with the raps playing well the tong wars are less frequent and far less intense....

    Too Much Perfection.

    Good theory.

    Sometimes I wonder what happened to McHappy

    People like to talk when things are going badly.. just the way it is.

    Right now:

    DD is shooting 3's and has become way more efficient
    JV is playing defense
    Casey is playing kids over vets
    We're not playing ISO ball
    Lowry is averaging less than 33mpg and is healthy
    Offense and Defense are in top 5

    In the meantime as well the Cavs are imploding, the Celtics are coming back to earth and the Warriors are going to win it all anyway.

    Man this place is dead. Have people finally realized that we're really, genuinely good and therefore have nothing left to talk about?
    This thread, or this forum? I agree to both.

    FWIW...the national media is definitely picking up. Tim Bontemps covers basketball well. He's based out of the washington post but seems to dot around the country to be at wherever the big games are. He was here to cover the last two games in Toronto (and wrote pretty good stories for each...that's where the early NBA reply about replay came from)

    I hope the big internet monopolies aren't monitoring us because I'm about to mention the Balls. Only to say that for amusement sake I was about to click on the ESPN item how the Ball brothers didn't score in their second game in Lithuania. Then I thought.....well every time someone clicks on an article they register it and that would encourage more of the nonsense. Good to know Lithuania is treating them like they deserve though. A lot of big bruisers in that league apparently. Like our friendly giant
