  • Umm... Are We Still Too "Euro"?

    it was never a complaint of mine but will it die out now? One starter and one (about to be traded) bench player. can't include Kleiza in that list...he's been here too long. Are we perhaps the least Euro team? Is that going to be the new complaint?

      That's 3 Europeans too many! WHY HASN'T BC LEARNED FROM HIS MISTAKES?! HE SHOULD BLOW UP THE TEAM AND TRADE BARGS, JOSE, AND KLEIZA FOR CP3 AND DAVID WEST. GAWD HE'S SO STUPID.

        Now that we have achieved the 3 or less int'l players on the roster that it takes to win in the NBA we are now a sure thing for the NBA finals.

            With all due respect, listing who we have does not tell the story. Unless you're the Celtics or Nuggets....or the Nets or Clippers, your roster is not within a player or two of being all american. Sort of the minority for a 30 team league.

              There are three Europeans on the team and I identified them. If you're looking for a different story you need to ask a different question.

                He may be refering to the Brazillian, Austrialian and Nigerian.

                  If that's the case then he needs to say International. Sorry to be a stickler but saying a team is too Euro because it has a bunch of international players on the roster is like complaining that a fruit basket has too many oranges in it while pointing at bananas, apples and plums. lol


                  Note: The Raptors have every continent covered with the exception of Asian.

                      definitely not too "Euro"..... but with the departure of Belli, how do we rank on the "whiteness scale"?

                      we gotta be top 5 on pasty-meter

                        There's an argument that Kleiza isn't Euro.

                            We arent to much euro anymore we have what, 3 euro players, and 1 brazilian. We arent too international and we arent too euro

                            you could even argue that because we arent euro anymore like we were a few years ago, our connection with europe is weakining, and thus our value as an organization to the nba is lowering. That is very outlandish, but could be very true.
