We the asked the question, why is it that our men’s basketball program continues to disappoint year in, year out? Is it the players, the coach or the program as a whole? I don’t get it. There’s no reason why we should be this bad. How can we fix it?

Hoopsworld contributor Steve Kyler seems to be one of the very few NBA media types who are somewhat optimistic with this young and fresh faced Toronto Raptors team. Check out what he had to say about them in his chat this afternoon.
I think the 2007 Raptor team's biggest problem was a lack of secondary scoring option. We had Bosh (who was neutralized by Mikey freakin' Moore), and everyone else. Was any team scared of Calderon or Parker dropping 25? Definitely not.
This year, we've got 2 legit scorers in Lowry and DeRozan, and even Salmons and Vasquez have the ability to turn a broken play into 2 points. I'm not suggesting this current team are worldbeaters, but their offense isn't as one-dimensional as the 2007 team, without even saying anything about the improved defense.
