  • I honestly preferred the Bargnani years to this...

    At least we knew we were trash and we could delight in the small things. Coming back in the 4th against better teams only to lose. Cheering on scrubs like Jamario Moon. Pizza night if we score 100.

    Now we're just fake good. Dominate in the regular season then disappoint in the playoffs. It hurts so much fucking more.

    Meh. It sucks that we can't beat LeBron, and keep getting stuck in his bracket. Hard cap on success. I do prefer some success to none though.

      Don't let the optimism fade that quickly Shaolin. So you were wrong about 1 game. It's still first team to 4.

          There's nothing wrong with being in Lebron's bracket and losing to an all-time great. I relish the challenge. Just play smart and with some effin' heart, like the Pacers. That's all anybody is asking for.

            This year, there isn't a cap, though. The Pacers proved that this Cavs team is vulnerable.

            We could have taken advantage, but didn't. This wasn't the case in the past two years.

              I would take an infinite crushing defeats at the hands of LeBron, than have to sit through another minute of this fuck face.

                Extreme shift from the adamant prediction that we'd win games 2 and 3.

                The Bargnani years had similar lack of fight, if you're going to pine for better times, probably not the best era.

                    Dread it. Run from it. An ass-whooping from LeBron still arrives.

                      No, the Bargnani years were awful. The team was getting punked in the regular season, not just by a GOAT player in the postseason.

                      This season was still the most fun I've had watching Raptors basketball - the team basketball they played for most of 82 games was better and more entertaining than any other Raptors squad. It's right up there with how much fun it was watching young Vince as an individual player.

                        The best thing about the Bargnani days were some of the great back and forth threads we saw at RR. There were 2-3 homers that just took their Bargnani love to a new level.

                        We sort of got that with the DeMar but not at the same level. I kind of miss that. But watching that team play defense was a joke. And then the management around it was even sadder. I do not want to relive the Bryan Colangelo era of paying for lazy unskilled role players year over year and hoping and praying for lottery balls only to get disappointed by the pick (Ross over Drummond for example).
