I agree in everything you say Matt. And every scenario which includes Bargnani to be OUT so that this team can really start to resolve the issue which has a lot to do with him is a great thinking and I am glad there are people who share my opinion. Whether Bargnani is traded or injured - I don't care as long as he is away from the court.
Now we can really rebuild on the court! Sorry I'm not sorry.
You could of made this trade all day after his 13 games last year. I know I wasn't the only one yelling to flip the switch while the value was high.
There is a side of me that wants him out just to see who would be the next RR target. No big deal, I will continue to cheer for the Cavs and the Raptors, and hope most ex-Raptors do well on their new teams.
Holy hell cant believe I read all of this. Kudos to each and everyone of you for caring about the team when realistically the franchise doesn't deserve it. TO has incredible support for arguable the biggest collection of losing franchises of any city.
Hate blaming coaches as they don't choose the players they get but all summer we kept hearing Casey type players and no difference if anything its been worse. Casey has got to go back the defensive side of the ball and focus there and forget the offense as he clearly isn't capable of coaching it.
BC did a great job with the first roster haul over IMO but ever since that summer its been down hill from there. Way too much player change over and no clear direction or identity with the roster leaves many puzzles including myself. Free agency hes been a nightmare, small trades hes done well, big trades have been god awful and hes done a very good job with his first round picks when hes kept them (second rounder have been bad but cant hold it against him). Other then drafting i don't see a purpose for him and think hes overstayed his welcome.
Christmas wish is for BC to get his walking papers and for the franchise to take a long hard look at the right GM with a plan to rebuild this team through the draft. Let Casey finish the season and see if he can get the current players motivated to play defense again. If not then let him go and not pick up his 3rd year option.
Would love to see a reputable coach with a no nonsense attitude to lead this team as we don't have a leader in the room (don't tell me Lowry is). Time for MLSE to dip into the pocket and pay a big time coach.
LOL Jclaw.. Silver Spoons! You've totally dated yourself there.
