    What's up the the font used for the logo? Is this an old-timey basketball saloon for weathered old coots?

    Seriously. Baskerville?

    And that's one of the reasons I don't come here - the rose-coloured glasses view of the Raptors, where JV is a future Dwight Howard (really, I've seen it here) and every Raptor is a future all-star. ...

    True! Give that list to people outside of the Toronto faithful and you'll get a lot of "who?".

    I've been reading these 'disappointing season, optimistic outlook' posts for years now. They always have the same flavour - an overestimation of our player's current talent and future potential,...

    This is a silly question. AA is a success story, a journeyman who found a niche in the NBA after one failed attempt and stints overseas. If you aren't a fan of that you're a fool. If you can put the...

    I blow it up.

    No player on this team is a superstar and this is a league where superstar-laden teams win playoff rounds. All we have are a collection of decent players that we amplify into good...

    Seriously? Ed has improved this year but have you not watched him against starters or even quality backups?

    Now you're saying top 10 after a few good performances?

    No wonder this team never...

    You have to know that every other GM in the league saw this interview (probably through one of those big LOLcat chain email, because that's how ridiculous he sounded), and that they each made a...

    A Pau trade is adding Spanish deck chairs to the Titanic. We instantly get slightly better. But then what? We become a legitimate 8th seed in 2013-14 (LOL!) and build on that 'success' to get a firm...

    Spot on. JV has hit the rookie wall, or rather it has hit him in the form of very large men pushing him around night after night.

    JV is very raw and is clearly overmatched by most starting 5s at...

    I'm not knocking your avatar, I'm questioning your bias. You like the guy so much you've made him your avatar. You're a big fan obviously, so how can you have perspective?

    I think Gortat has a higher basketball IQ and JV a higher motor. I'm not that sure Jonas' lack of footspeed will preclude him from becoming a great pick-and-roll option.

    First, your avatar is JV, which gives me a good idea of your bias. But I'll be your huckleberry for a bit.

    Demar has improved, yes. No question. Not defensively so much, though his rebounding...

    No the talent is not there. Talented enough to be NBA'ers? Yep. Talented enough to be a winning basketball team with the possibility of becoming an elite squad? No 'effing way.

    We're stuck just below mediocrity, yes. But that's not what worries me.

    It's that we (the management, the fans, & the franchise as a whole) aspire to it.

    ^This^.

    Besides the personal time constraints of running a startup, the Raptors' shouty marketing + futility + muddy future have worn me out a little. It doesn't help that I got nba.tv. The game...
  22. Nope

    The Raptors have a very small chance of making the playoffs next year. If Howard goes to the Nets that chance moves to zero. Even a Howard-less Orlando is the more likely playoff team and Cleveland...

    I would like to volunteer my doubt. Talent to play in the NBA? Maybe. Talent to stop the Raptors from being the sump pump of the NBA? No.

    I came into the season with low expectations because I don't believe this team has NBA-level talent, so I can't say I'm disappointed. Still, handing two winless teams their first (and washington's...
