    I think this was a common thread at the time, the problem was that Aldrige's skillset is so identical to Bosh's, that it was probably in their best interest to try for the home run on the enigma.

    Not sure if you're referring to drafting Bargnani, that's not a mistake you can fault him for. I think we're all looking for mistakes that are clearly due to Colangelo's ineptitude as a GM. Like the...

    At the start of the season, I'd agree with you, finishing just out of the playoffs would've been the best bet, showing some internal growth with the prospect of more growth. But with the way this...

    And of those 60 games, we'd have to win about 36 - 40 games to get an 8th seed. The Raptors aren't going to play .600 ball the rest of the season unfortunately, may as well try to develop the young...

    I don't know how anyone can be critical of drafting Bargs. His comparison was Dirk, and you don't pass up an opportunity to get a Dirk. Turkoglu was OK, I didn't like it at first (I would've...

    The problem with the Wolves in trading is that they don't have a lot of salary to work with if they plan to acquire Gasol (Hence, the Raptors getting a ton of players). Packing Kleiza would be nice,...

    The space Bargs create is overrated IMO. Both Jonas and Amir have a decent mid-range, so there's no need for the deep bomber Bargs, and he hasn't even been shooting it well recently (.327 over the...

    We don't have a pick in the upcoming draft unless it's top 3 or out of the lottery. The Thunder own the pick otherwise.

    I don't think they care. Case and point, the Leafs.

    I think the ownership is OK with mediocrity as long as the money keeps coming in.

    So much doom and gloom =/

    Signing Pietrus isn't going to do anything for this team. A role player is a role player and we've got a ton of those. He's done quite poorly recently as well. Same goes...

    One key to being a savvy veteran, is being a vet. Demar is still pretty undeveloped in terms of basketball. Battier played college ball for four years under Coach K, a defensively minded coach. Demar...

    It's being physically gifted, combined with intelligence to be able to use those gifts in an effective manner. Coaches can help.

    EDIT: To elaborate a bit, an example would be DD. He's an athletic...

    The only expectations Demar is failing are the unreasonable expectations everyone seems to be piling on him, he's not VC. It's not like he's shown flashes of All-Star potential like Bargs did last...

    The protection on the pick is crazy if you think about it. Lowry is still worth it, but the fact that the Raps lose the ability to trade away any first-round picks until it's used really ruins their...

    The pick they traded away is actually guaranteed lottery, unless they make the playoffs (or completely bottom out) five years in a row.

    Top 3 protected this years draft, top 2 protected the next...

    I think the ideal situation would be to barely miss the 8th spot and finish 9th overall in the conference. The Raptors then end the season with the knowledge that we can make the playoffs if we push...

    Players only become RFAs if we extend a qualifying offer. Assuming we didn't sign him to an extension and didn't give a QO, he'd be a unrestricted free agent. Don't quite get the DD hate either, he's...

    I just really hope DD makes us eat our words. But the hate shouldn't be directed at DD, it should be directed at BC for bidding against himself. 7.5-8.5 would've been fine IMO. The only way BC can...

    Assuming he gets better in 2 or 3 years and not now makes this an even worse contract, that means we could've paid him less at the end of the year when he's a restricted free agent (pending a QO)
