    Default Is everyone ready for the worst offseason ever?

    Lets review:

    -BC will probably be retained, so there's that.
    -No money to spend on anyone of note
    -No draft pick. Shitty draft, but at least we'll be in the wiggins sweepstakes next year right?!?
    -Some new dunderhead coach BC is going to pick. Casey will be gone, regardless of if BC is still here or not.
    -The team still sucks
    -Ross will probably be traded

    My thoughts:

    - BC will probably be retained and I'm hating this team
    - We drafted Ross ahead of Drummond
    - This team has a $23 Million anchor in Bargnani
    - Gay is blind as a bat and his back isn't any better.
    - Let's go Blue Jays!!!

    And your point is? Why would we have drafted Drummond? when we had JV coming in as our Center piece (pun intended)

    So when Detroit eventually plans to play Drummond and Monroe together, they got it wrong? Oh, and that wonderful extension for Demar coupled with Fields signing is ok with you? Duplicating the wing position is ok, but god not the frontcourt!!!

    You realize Acy wasn't on the team when we had a chance at Drummond right?

    and you realize BC/Raps passed up a guy with #1 potential because it would cause a redundancy to draft a guy who plays the same position as the guy they were about to extend for more money than anyone would have ever imagined right?

    Ok good

    If BC is here next Halloween I'm going to be depressed.......so standard start to Raps season for me.

    - BC will be fired along with Coach Casey
    - T-Ross and Bargnani will be traded for a PF and backup PG (hopeful)
    - Lowry might be traded in the summer or beginning of next season
    - DeRozan might ask to be traded in the summer but likely he won't
    - Gay will be here and sign an extension in the summer
    - Val will be an allstar in his 3rd year and will play in the sophomore vs rookies game next year.
    - AA, Fields, Kleiza will remain on the roster until the deadline next year, yes AA will be offered another year service for the Raps
    - Telfair is gone along with Lucas III
    - We will buy a pick or trade and grab Marcus Smart to be our future PG

    We drafted based on position need, not talent. That is how we got Rafael Araújo too. Not saying that Ross isn't talented, but hard to tell with the 5 min of PT Casey gives him.

    BTW anyone else hold Casey accountable for the reason JV wasn't in the rookie/sophomore game. Lack of playing time.

    It's not Casey...he really isn't known that well around the league. He was also injured prior to selection.

    Yeah, but word is that Casey's shouting at him in practice has contributed to the hole in the ozone layer, which in turn contributed to JV's injury.

    I don't understand MLSE's fascination with BC and Bargnani. Can you find any tandem in pro sports that did this to a franchise? Any sports?

    Regardless, the team is a mess and they're not changing leadership at the top. I'm pissed that MLSE is falling for BC. It's been 7 years and counting!!!

    This is an internet post board, so you're hilarious. But if we were friends IRL, I would probably have an intervention with you. Seriously, the only two things you left of your list were stalking and date rape. In case nobody's told you, you shouldn't do either of those two things.

    i would never stalk or date rape anybody.

    i would give them advance notice of my hiding in their bushes in the form of a letter made up of cut out newspaper letters

    and i tend to drift more to team getting choked, rather than team doing the choking.

    i'm totally a pervert. but only if i'm allowed to be.
