  • End of Year Raptors Interviews, etc.

    Was surprised to see some of this today but thought this might a worthwhile end of year thread as the Raptors are, apparently, already giving year-end interviews. Maybe someone else has time to track down the actual interviews.

    The delusional:

    The "jebus, are we really doing this for another year?" nonsense:

    The not-so-subtle "I can't wait to get out of here":

    Guys can only answer the questions they are presented with. I do not think it is fair to knock the players for answering questions that a bored or impatient writer is asking prematurely.

      The fact that DeRozan wants to focus on defense right now is actually a great positive. Good for him. I hope he takes it to the gym each day and comes back highly improved. You don't get anywhere by going in a million directions at once. He needs to improve in a lot of areas so if his defense gets an upgrade and his offense doesn't change much he's still a much better player.

        Didn't realize I was knocking anyone. Was just curious that we were seeing/hearing these interviews already. Presumably more will follow. This is a place to put them.

          My apologies. The sarcastic lead in to the quotes and this line "...the Raptors are, apparently, already giving year-end interviews...." made me misinterpret the intent then. It seemed, to me at least, that fault was being placed on the Raptors for the timing of the quotes.

          This is a great thread idea though.

            If i remember correctly, Bargnani was drilled last season on what he thought he needed and should improve on for the following season, and he said he will focus on defense and rebounding and thats what he showed this season, improved defense, improved boxing out.

            Thats why sometimes I listen to these players and pay attention to what they say.

            Specially this:

            Writer: Where do you see yourself next year?
            JJ: In the playoffs, with Toronto.

            KABOOM!!!!!!
