After reading everyones responses and taking them all into careful consideration... I've come to the conclusion that you are all right and no matter how bad we suck, we will still all be die hard raptor fans no matter what. Only person I seem to be able to point my finger at is Dwayne Casey. Tired of hearing him blame players for the losses. COACH the *#;/':"--- team to win! there's damn well enough talent to win with this squad!
minus bargani of course...
Lowry plays 36 minutes to Jose's 20 and it's Jose's fault that Lowry repeatedly played like a bonehead when it counted? *shaking head*

Lowry’s refusal to play defense within the team concept also really hurt this team in the second half. A really disappointing effort.
Look, I was hoping that Lowry would come here and hit big shots and take the keys and run with it. I am still hoping he does (and so does Casey, or there is no way he is playing as much as he did down the stretch last night), but please don't say that Lowry has outplayed Calderon... he flat out has not! Again, I want that to happen and I hope Calderon can be traded, but Jose has been the best player on this team over the last month or so. Lowry's game management down the stretch of games has been so bad that I want Calderon out there right now... and I have said before that Calderon is one of the worst clutch players.Quote:
Lowry has been no better at corralling Jrue than Calderon, also, somewhat negating his perceived biggest distinction over Jose.
Seems to me Lowry was brought in early to slow down Holiday. He did that fairly well at first but then seemed to get dispirited after a few calls he didn't like and then wasn't being effective on either end. I can't remember ever seeing Calderon just give up.
I want to know why Ross, who was 4for4 from 3, didn't touch the ball until the second to last play of the third.
