    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)

    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?

    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!!!

    Its a toss up Raps went with a athletic shooter not knocking on Drummond but Im not sure how it would have worked out with he and JV here.

    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!!!

    I have a bad feeling BC will be here for many more years.

    I'm not giving up hope. Colangelo and Bargnani will be gone this summer.

    Here are the plus sides:

    -No money means BC can't sign someone to another horrendous contract
    -No draft pick for BC to trade away for less
    -The team can't get much worse

    Ready as always.
    Only bright light in this team right now is JV and Amir, at least for me. Not sure if that's good or bad. It's probably sad.

    Positives:

    - I think Rudy Gay is a tremendous talent. He's an all-star caliber talent imo. Shot selection needs to be better though as well as his 3pt shooting.
    - JV is a big time talent. He'll be an all-star one day there's no question in my mind.
    - Ross is still an unknown but i like his skillset alot.
    - Love what i'm seeing from Amir this season. MIP candidate this year and i think he's good enough to be a starting PF in this league. Also, he's only 25 years old.

    Negatives:

    - Coaching. I don't want to sound like a broken record but the coaching this year has been really bad.
    - Kyle Lowry needs to get his shit together. His decision making on defense and offense needs to be better. Way better. He also needs to be smarter with his selection. His random 3's drives me nuts.
    - DeRozan needs to be more aggressive and assertive on offense. Needs to be TOUGHER, needs to be a better finisher, if he can dunk the ball DUNK IT. His SOFT finger rolls drives me nuts. Needs to develop a 3pt game. This is DeMar's 4th year in the league and to be honest i'm seeing very LITTLE improvement.
    - Bench needs to be more consistent.

    They need a new GM/President, a better bench, and no more Bargnani. None of those is going to happen...Go Jays!

    I would not be opposed to seeing the Raptors flip Lowry for a first round pick this year. Find a team like Orlando or NO in the off-season, make a straight Lowry for pick trade, find some bum to play the point for us and suck for the season with two shots at Wiggins..
    Lowry isn't the guy, so why not cut him now? If (I know.. a BIG if), but IF we land a stud in this draft to pair up with JV, Ross and Demar, than we can use whatever is left to bring in a point guard. I'm not interested in a mediocre season. Suck. Pull a Charlotte. Let's get Wiggins

    Casey will probably not be fired, regardless if we all dislike him or not
