    I remember writing a post a couple of years ago about how the Raptors don't stand a chance for the next half decade with BC, it's nice to see Raptors fans finally realize it now, albeit 2 years too...

    Let me ask a question to Rap fans, are you happy being an 8th seed? If yes, note that this team clearly nowhere to grow except JV. We will be swept by Miami in the playoffs and hopefully look to...

    I don't want to pop your bubble but that lineup you read with Bayless and Jonas is almost D-League material in the NBA. Most draft picks don't pan out and the fact that the Raps can only add talent...

    You make some good points but I'll clarify and explain further what I mean.

    - I like Bayless on my team, unfortunately I prefer him to come off the bench. Bayless is not a true point guard and...

    I'm surprised people are happy with this draft. I'm not going to bash euros like everyone else but what Brian Colangelo did was set back the team another 3-4 years possibly with a horrible draft.

    100% right. The problem with bad teams in the NBA is they try to fit a system around players that don't fit. I have league pass and watched so many NBA teams with better talent than their record due...
