    I wonder if any provisions are being taken to ensure that Bargs, Jose, Val, and any new draft pick or FA signing are not all riding on the same bus for an Andes mountain tour next summer, or sightseeing near any anomalous magnetic earth nodes during meteor showers. It would be more than I can take if anything happened.
    It would've been great if that had happened last season. We'd have forfeited the year and not have to be subjected to this awful season. Furthermore, the league would have to repopulate our team with players from other teams and they'd probably feel bad enough for us to give us the #1 overall pick. Twin Towers Davis and JV for the next 10 seasons is probably better than what we have right now.

    ...They have everything lined up to have a 2006 type season except this time it will be earned on the backs of youth and not on the backs of a bunch of older guys who can't possibly fit long term plans.

    I interpreted Amir to mean he'd use it as motivation to win more games next year.

    Remember it as in when free agency rolls around in their particular contract years?

    I would call them consistently bad with small lapses in between. I do have a great deal of confidence in them having a turnaround year after this summer. They have everything lined up to have a 2006 type season except this time it will be earned on the backs of youth and not on the backs of a bunch of older guys who can't possibly fit long term plans.
    That is, we hope it'll be on the backs of youth. You never know with this Colangelo cat.

    I'm sticking around. But, i mean this shit of them constantly up and down. I mean this franchise can be described as inconsistent.

    I'm glad the cheese factor was picked up on.

    We gotta play like a team and tank as a team.

    Look at Cleveland. They were so far ahead of us and now look. Now that's team play.

    Looking at the standing now... I swear, if they win again NJ I'm done with the raps!!

    Who's with me?

    The fan base will erode if the Raptors don't soon recover from the past four years of pathetic performances and not due to losing out on 20 ping pong balls by beating the Nets. If you're going to bail on the team because they won a game little significance then what the heck are you doing here? The fact is the diehard fans aren't going to waver over 2% and the rest are mostly only around in the good times and thus probably won't know or appreciate the meaning of 2%.
    I'm sticking around. But, i mean this shit of them constantly up and down. I mean this franchise can be described as inconsistent.

    Really, the rebuild was started when bosh was drafted. But, we still sucked and it got to vince, he left. Yes, he was a douche and all that jazz. Then, it kind of regressed a few steps.

    Then it was rejuvanated when bargs got drafted. It was never really followed through, we made the playoffs twice. Then, tried a last ditch effort over the next few years to try to keep bosh and remain in the playoffs.

    It was just constantly ditched and was a clusterfuck for those years, which is why now when they have to do things the long proper way.

    Alot of fans, just are fed up and aren't buying it. Or have already gone.

    With all the shit that's happened over the last four years like you mentioned, it's good to have skepticism.

    Shouldnt this be in the "everything NBA" bucket?
    No. Read the first post and many of the subsequent post have been Raptor related. The conversation was meant to revolve around the Raptors.

    I think the halftime score in ATL-BOS game last night was 34-28!!!

    28 pts for the Celtics? I bet the scores tomorrow will be better.
