    Don't forget about the endless debate between tanking (for draft position), and winning pointless games (for experience/culture change).
    Too true. Far too often as well, unfortunately, for us fans. The irony is that I wonder how substantially a team's culture can change when between 1/3 - 1/2 the roster is turned over each season. Comparitively, I wonder how favorably impactful drafting a top-5 pick who can come in and positively assert himself to actually affect change can be, when it comes to improving a team's culture (compared to a mid-late 1st round pick who's happy to just get some playing time with the 2nd unit)??

      During the off-season: Everyone here was so much more optimistic than me.

      During the actual season: Everyone here is so much more pessimistic than me

        1. Lowry's a nobody? JVs a nobody? Ross is a nobody?
        Just for the record Ross is a nobody. He can't even get much burn outside of garbage time on a team that is 1-5.

        The only reason people know JV outside Toronto is thanks to KD. Not saying they will always be nobodies but for now they are.
        LET'S GO RAP-TORS!!!!!

          Ross is a nobody because he hasn't got much burn 6 games into his career. JV's a nobody because people outside Toronto don't know him 6 games into his career.

          LOL, I should no better than to try and bring the panic button down to earth here. Never mind.

              Allow me to add a few to the cylce:
              7. Have your "best" players get injured a the worst possible times...then hype up replacement scrubs to superstar status
              8. Keep telling media/fans you're just about to "turn the corner" when said "corner" is a trillion eons away
              9. Offer $10 seats after Valentines Day to keep a few warm bodies in the ACC
              10. Base contracts/signings/draft picks 100% on expectations/hopes/dreams vs on @#*ing R-E-A-L-I-T-Y

                Many of the reasons for optimism appear to be gone -- at least in my opinion.

                Bargnani is who is he.

                Financial flexibility has been tossed aside with an extension to DeRozan that was not only generous but unnecessary given the leverage of RFA.

                The culture change of last year appears to be one of those great fads that disappear too soon - kind of like Chip&Pepper shirts.

                Fields has been a bust.... the only hope here is his hand really is messed and he'll come back much better.... not implying Fields was going to be a star but I thought he'd at least be able to make a layup.

                  Hope

                  This Raptor organization reminds me of the OBAMA HOPE.

                  In the begining there is soo much hope...but the result is the same.

                  New faces, new mgmt, new directions...same result...4-5 yr


                  Cheers
