    Good post Ceez, I'm not a fan of Bargs, but it's only 12 games in let's relax on the guy. If we can trade him...awesome, if not then hopefully Casey figures out how to utilize him better.
    Maybe it's been 12 games since you've been paying attention. It's actually been 397 games.

I'm also waiting for Lowry to be the voice in the locker room, I get the sense that he might already be (looking at the way Demar has been playing) but sometimes it takes some adjusting from the rest of the team. I'm loving Lowry and hope we're not rushing him back too soon.

    Lastly, keep in mind all these games (with the exception of OKC) have been soooooo close, with a little more experience from both players and coaching we'll be able to close these suckers out as long as the refs let us.

    Let's go Raps!

    Fixed.

    A friend of mine said it best -- "are you willing to stake your career on the gamble that you can win with Andrea Bargnani?"
    lol - thanks.

    I wonder if we could get David Lee ... dudes been awesome this year.
    Not a big fan of his defense though, but he's a great rebounder, solid offensive player, but Golden state are trying to change their culture too would they trade for Bargnani?

    Ed Davis
    Jonas Valanciunas
    Amir Johnson
    Quincy Acy
    Kyle Lowry
    Aaron Gray
    Dominic McGuire
    Linas Kleiza
    Landry Fields
    DeMar DeRozan

    Q: What do the above players have in common?
    A: They all have more rebounds/48 than Bargnan

    So, in a starting lineup of JV, AB, LF, DD, KL our starting PF would average the least rebounds, given equal minutes. Nice!
    Yeah but he's a matchup freakin' nightmare!!! :|

    WP Projects 43 wins now. The team is getting better. Yes, Bargnani is still an issue, but our 2 PGs are all-world, our backup PFs are great, our rookie center is already productive and actually DeMar is close to being above average!

    I know WP is not gospel, but hey, it's something.

    Nice post Ceez, and I'm in agreement on this one. The record is crappy and saying we are better than what are record reflects doesn't mean squat in the NBA, but there are some things to get excited about (JV, DD, Lowry, T.Ross showing signs, tradeable assets etc..).

    3-9 is not hopeless and I didn't expect much better. When the season began BC and Co. said they hope to make the play-offs which means that they may not(make the play-offs) just as well. As far as I'm concerned losing is not the problem but losing without an effort is. At-least in 60-65% of the games the effort has been there and it is here that I would like to see improvement.

    When Casey was hired, I was not a fan of the hire especially because Lawrence Frank who I preferred was overlooked. Casey however surprised me with a drastic defensive improvement. Now that the focus has shifted to offence, it doesn't seem like his expertise lies in this area. I think this needs to be addressed.

    I am very excited about the possibility of replacing Bargnani with assets that are more conducive to a team game of slow it down/grind it out, rebound, defend, and attack the basket from inside out versus the current outside in.

    The pick is top 3/15+ protected so if we suck really bad or luck out we get the 3rd pick, but knowing the raptors, we're gonna finish the.season with a ten game winning streak and OKC gets the fourth pick... Or if BC makes a trade and improves our team that we can sneak into the playoffs we keep oir picks as well

    This team has performed better than I expected so far. I didn't have them down for their 3rd win until the game against Detroit on Friday. If we win that one we'll be twice as good as I thought!
