    Total farce.

    Unfortunately, it's impossible to separate the coaching job from the talent. It's just one of those things you can't even measure objectively. So, you're telling me that Doc Rivers...

    A lot of that has to do with the fact that Rick Carlisle is a coach who won't put up with crap. Casey, on the other hand, seems to let his veterans get away with anything (exhibit A: Rudy Gay,...

    But, it WILL be a distraction - no denying that. And any distraction is too much. Especially, when it can be completely avoided in the first place.

    I mean, are you telling me that the...

    I see this is as a major DISTRACTION and developing a winning team is all about focus and alignment to the common goal. Even if Vince is the model citizen, there will be endless media articles,...

    Not sure why we are singling out DD in a "would you trade him?" thread. I mean, the answer is simple: everybody is available for the right price.

    Secondly, the Jrue Holiday / Sixers analogy...

    I am in the minority of fans that were not pissed off about how Carter left (I blamed Babcock more). I still love those highlights and those memories that Carter provided. He truly put the Raptors...

    LOL. Hard-core fan comes on here hoping to get some sympathy from other hard-core fans to chastise so called band-wagoners, but instead gets crowd spanked. Now that's freedom of speech in action. ...

    I've got my fingers crossed that the Raps can grab Melvin Ejim with one of their 2nd round picks. He's been pigeon-holed as an undersized PF (@ 6' 6"), but I see no reason why he can't play SF in...

    To me, the pythagorean W-L is an indication of the ability to win games that you had a chance of winning - which is almost like prs1 said.... Casey is a half-decent coach until the last 2 minutes. ...

    Expected W-L is a stat geek calculation, based on points scored vs. points given up & adjusted based on historical data. On BBREF, you always see the expected W-L at the top of the team page.

    Simple, profound and very true. If you look at the Expected Win-Loss vs. the actual Win-Loss, before last night's games, the Raptors are almost at the bottom of the league, which speaks to the...

    Nobody questions Hayes effort, but he clanked at least 5 point blank teardrops on offense, had a few turnovers and was getting torched by Sullinger and even out rebounded by Olynyk, of all people. ...

    JV was having a good game. Hayes was crapping the bed on both ends of the court. I don't get what Casey was trying to do tonight.
  14. I've lost count how many 6 ft gimmes in the lane...

    I've lost count how many 6 ft gimmes in the lane Hayes has clanked off the rim tonight. Casey is so goddamn stubborn and blind when it comes to his veteran lovefest.
  15. You mean when he missed 3 straight 5 ft jumpshots...

    You mean when he missed 3 straight 5 ft jumpshots and then turned the ball over within a span of 3 minutes? All in a day's work for Mr. Hayes.

    You guys are getting me all excited about the draft, from the Raps perspective. There seems to be opportunities to steal a top 5 talent late in the 1st round or even 2nd round. And, there really...

    Not concerned at all, as long as Patterson comes back to his old self.

    WTF play call was that???

    I feel like we need to sub out Casey for the last minute of games.

    This feels just like the Pelicans game. But Cavs will be a lot tougher to come back against.

    The thing is that you're trying to build a playoff roster and ultimately a winning roster. Plugging in a weak defensive player like GV is just asking to be exploited in a seven game series.

    Yeah. Starting Egregious is a bad idea. Our wing defence would immediately suck bad, assuming Ross goes to the bench. It's like having to compensate for Jose's bad D all over again.

    That's...

    Playing teams fighting for a playoff berth is often worse than playing teams already in or out. So, Knicks, Hawks, Cavs, Pistons and Bobcats could be unusually tough games, if those teams are still...

    Sorry, nobody let you in on the joke. Apparently, Dwane Casey has a slight preference for veterans.

    Oh, and the backup PG could be Nando. Ross, Nando, 2Pat and Hansbro on a second unit could...

    Bill Self's KU offense was a bad, bad fit for Wiggins. Just like UCONN's system sucked for Andre Drummond. Grantland does a great job of breaking down exactly why KU's offense is so bad for guards,...
