  • Is this officially Rock Bottom for the Raptors?

    Warriors score 84 in first half; roll past Raptors. Wow, what a bad, bad, bad game. They say you have to reach rock bottom to finally find your way. Well there is only two things that can happen when you reach that point. You can either say, "Enough is enough" and try to lift yourself up or you can stay there and die.

    Will our Raps, dig themselves out for next year or is this it? Now, I know we can't keep talking about Triano because after all, the players have to play with some pride and heart and defense. What the heck happened tonight?

    Will we get better come the last two weeks or is this it for the year?

    Tank away guys!

      There is no more bottom left to dig, there are more ping pong balls but no one in this draft is going to turn them around any time soon. No pride.

        also no matte how bad we tank we aren't going to get ahead of washington or the cavs (we have the tie break on both) and i can't see sactown making a huge run in the west. There are no more ping pong balls, we've got all the ones we are going to get. Wins and losses don't matter anymore. Next year's training camp starts now. Start playing basketball and get some pride back. End the season on a good note.

          Toronto has 20
          Sacramento has 19
          Minnesota has 17
          Washington 17
          CLeveland 14

          To get Kyrie, the only thing the Raps need is for CLE to be below them Cleveland slip to 3 and Raps move to 2, or CLE to 4 and Raps to 3 - barring trades of course.

            We most likely wont get Irving. No point of getting hopes up especially with Sullinger out.

              No, I believe they have an even worse outing in them before the end of the season. Probably after another impressive upset. This team has the mentality of a teenage girl. Just atrocious at times.

                Thank you. Time to play with some pride and Triano should bring Alabi back up and give him and the others some playing time!

                  We could have trade up if we had our 2nd 1st round pick and trade Amir for some 1st round picks as well.

                    why would you possibly want to trade the most productive player this team has. The only guy who is capable of playing efficiently at both ends of the floor?

                    Not trying to get more players like Amir is the exact reason why this team is in the situation it is.

                      The problem with Raptor is exactly scrubs like Amir that some fans call" the most productive". The problem with Raptor is that our so called " most productive" player can not dribble, does not have a post move, can not beat his man off the dribble, does not have a range to his jump shot.

                      The problem with Raptor is that our so called most productive player is not ranked in top 15 in his position in NBA , seriously, lets rank the top PFs in this league and see where Amir stands !!!

                      The problem with Raptor is that Scrubs are getting titles like " The most productive player".

                      By the way, Ed Davis last night put up numbers that if not better, are the same as the best numbers that Amir was able to put up this season.

                      Is Ed our " Most Productive Player" now

                        Trading up in a weak draft = retarded. As good as Irving is he's not going to be someone that comes in and changes the franchise right away. Most people are even saying due to his average/below average athleticism he wont be top 5 PG in the league...

                        BTW Why do you hate Amir so much?

                          Forget Irving. Toronto should be going after Derrick williams AND Brandon knight in that order.
                          these 2 can play.

                            if you think about it, our downfall started ever since Sam mitchell got fired. Jay triano is the whole reason for this teams current record. He's just too soft, we need a guy like stan van gundy who Screams at his players to play defence.
