  • Wow. How Many More Times Are The Raptors Going To Get Burned?

    - battling for last playoff spot franchise player goes down
    - Last season's prized acquisition declares he wants out
    - Franchise player leaves, says deals has been in the works for months
    - Promised deal falls through the cracks and player involved who can help the raptors the most gets traded to another team instead

    WOW.

    How many more times are we going to get burned?

    Im seriously thinking now that this franchise is cursed.

      Clippers of the East? I certainly hope not. I'm sure BC has a few rabbits left in his hat. Chandler wouldve been great man...

        Lets just hope this doesn't turn into the John Salmons situation where we lose one guy and replace him with Freddy Jones.

          Let's not get all fatalistic about this. Jordan got a better offer last minute and went with it. It's certainly no worse than we did to Portland to GET our "prized acquisition" in the first place.

          I think it's a bit early to compare us to the Clippers.... and if ANY team are the Clippers of the East, it's the Grizzlies.

            i guess youre right, we did burn Portland for Hedo, but we got double burned coz Hedo raped us then left us.

            Oh, and the Grizzlies are in the west. So that means we are the Clippers of the East. Yikes.

              This turn up very ugly. Raps end up trading a forward, which they need,
              for a guard which they do not need.

                  we also dont need a used reebok but i would have traded turk for that too its not just about positional need its about not paying turk over 10 million when hes 34

                      jordan didnt screw the raptors, he just did what was better for the team. freeing up substantial cap space as well as recieving some servicable players lets face it, is a better deal then calderone and reggie evans straight up for diaw and chandler.
                      im just happy the turk deal is going through and BC can start exploring some other options

                        Didnt Charlotte pretty much give away the last game of the season to the Bulls, which if they lost the Raptors would have had an appearance at least. and afterwards didnt MJ go in the Bulls locker room to congratulate them on making the playoffs? Im not saying MJ has something against the Raptors but damn thats twice he screwed us...

                            lol I think MJ is still pissed off about losing that one game to the raptors during the '95/'96 season.
