This team is just not good.
There is a lack of chemestry and a lack of talent
We dont have the peices to be a great team
We are pressed up against the cap
The only way i see change coming in the offseason is if BC decided to tear the team down. Thats the only way to change the team.
its obvious our "offensive" mindset isnt the way to win. It has become obvious that the way to win is with young, athletic players, who can play defence. Every team is buliding this way except the Raptors.
This team is not in a good position. Even if we trade our core guys we still have to take back salary, and i dont think a team is just waiting to pick up our mess.
I want to know which one of you thinks the Raptors can win, with this type of team? It has become a perimeter and gaurd league. And the Raptors only have bigs. The reason we get torched every night is because we have no one to answer for the Stephen Curry's, the Brandon Roys's, the Kobe's (you get the picture)
Atlanta- Joe Johnson, Crawford, Smith
Boston- Pierce, Rondo Charlotte- Wallace, Jackson
Chicago- Rose, Deng
Cleveland- Lebron, Williams,
Dallas- Butler, Marion, Kidd
Denver- Melo, Smith, Billups, Lawson
Detroit- Gordon, Stuckey,
Golden State- Curry, Ellis, Morrow
Houston- Ariza, Martin, Brooks
LA Clippers- Gordon, Davis
LA Lakers- Kobe, Artest
Memphis- Mayo, Gay, Colney
Miami- Wade, Beasley
Milwaukee- Jennings, Salmons
New Jersey- Harris, CDR
New Orleans- Paul, Collison
New York- Gallinari, Wilson Chandler?
Oklahoma City- Westbrook, Harden, Durant
Orlando- Vince, Nelson
Philadelphia- Young, Iggy
Phoenix- Nash, Richardson
Portland- BRoy, Batum
Sacramento- Evans, Casspi
San Antonio- Parker, Manu
Washington- Howard, Thornton, Foye?
Toronto- WHOTHEFACKDOWEHAVE? Calderon.. ha. Derozan=Unproven. Turk..No Comment
Its a gaurd leauge and we have no gaurds. Every other team has 1 or 2 solid-good players for the 1, 2, 3 spots the Raptors, IMO, have none.
So time for BC so look at the facts, realize that this is not the way to bulid a team, and try to blow it up in the offseason.
Even if we make playoffs, we will never win with this type of team.
In the future, our team simply requires a fast high energetic PG, and a big-black center who is 6-11, who boxes out, and grabs whatever rebounds that bounces around the rim and tips them in.
sounds like a plan
That "it's a guard league" nonsense is getting a bit old. Just ask Kobe and Pierce how much they won before KG and Gasol got there.
Just wondering...what colour should the pg be?
If Marc Gasol of Memphis were available (or his brother the better known one in LA or Yao Ming) would you still hold out for the "big-black" centre?
Wouldnt just the basket ball qualities suffice instead of going further?
more black guys and actually good white guys like david lee or manu ginobili
