    I think all the fans think the media is out to get them or disrespect them. The media can't be hating on everyone. I saw Warriors fans post how the refs and media are picking on them....

    Our man Bosh....




    A couple of thoughts ... Chris Bosh is not an alpha male leader type. He is quite the follower in my view ... and latched onto Lebron and Wade.

    That he left to go to Miami was a choice he made and perfectly his right under the movement rules. He however did a lot of fence sitting that last year postulating while he knew he was going. Dont blame him.

    ...cause it was the nutsack BC who allowed him to play the Raps. Bosh in my view could not lead the Raptors without significant help let alone another frontline player better than him. BC should have traded him the year before for what would have been a great return ... so we did not have to hear this version of events ten years later.

    Still helluva a player, especially if he was healthy in this era. Not all all-star players can be leaders... look at Kyrie.

    Yes he was... but not a franchise leader/player type imo. His position (pf) did not lend to this as well in his "era". But going to MIami he morphed into the stretch pf with his outside shot which then came into vogue. He is/was a good piece complimenting a good team. The Raptors could not offer him that environment. Kyrie is still immature. I cant say but he strikes me as not a team player.

    It has nothing to do with being frightened of the Raps winning. It's the "I'm not looking like a damn fool again for picking the Raptors" commentators covering their asses.

    The American media was 150% behind the Raps heading into that Cavs series last year. Even Vegas was picking us to win it convincingly. Raps absolutely cratered, yet again, especially DeRozan. It's how we have been exiting the playoffs that stays etched into their minds as a lasting impression. 3 out of the last 4 were pathetic sweeps (not just Lebron), which would have been 4-for-4 if the Cavs didn't go into party mode early that year we went to the ECF. Great regular season team is our rep, until proven otherwise.

    With DD & Casey gone, I suppose now it comes down to not trusting Lowry, and an unproven Nurse, which is a completely reasonable opinion.
    Not buying it. Many of these reporters are biased, and it shows with what they say and write. Although to be fair, its the talking heads i'm focused on, not actual reporters who might have a more objective POV. Remember all the crap that was said after we acquired leonard. Alot of these guys are probably just looking for clicks and such. Hmmm...maybe it has more to do with their audience then what they actually think.

    Same thing happened with the Blue Jays until they won it all.....back. to. back.
    I was wondering about that. Back then i only played attention to the actual games. Maybe they'll be more open to the club after we win. Ultimately, there are probably numerous american NBA franchises that are looked at similarly. Maybe it's just better for business to focus on the storied franchises who have larger fan bases.

    He was right about the handicap, it's fairly blatant.

    But the rest.... yeah, dick move on his part really.
