    I hope you are right but fear you are wrong.

    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
    BC may still try to flip AB for Boozer...could be good but could be horrendous re cap situation.

    Raps are already screwed until 2015, might as well get a productive player out of it.

    At this point, technically anyone is more productive than Bargs. I don't care if we trade him for a bag of basketballs, I want him gone.

    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!!!
    Agreed with everything but the Blue Jays, lol, live in Vancouver, and I don't give a smitch about baseball to be honest.

    Bingo! If we can flip Bargs for Boozer you do it in a heartbeat. Then we'd have a real playoff team at least for the next 2 years.

    Not making the Boozer deal was the blunder of the season..... If he did it asap he porbably could have been in some GM of the year talks but thats probably going to Houston? GSW??? I dont know but BC would have looked like a genius and signed a fat extension after the year is out.

    Really makes me wonder whats going through his mind right now? What is his plan for Bargnani? whats he going to do first? nobody knows cause BC is on the borderline of madness and genius.

    what the hell does drummond have to do with anything. we already had a rotation of jv-amir-davis-bargs-acy
    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.

    My off season prediction :-

    -BC retained.

    -Transactions :

    Out: A Bargnani, K Lowry, L Fields, A Gray and Coach Casey.

    In: starting PG, backup PG, PF, backup SF, backup center and new Coach.

    1. We need a GM, one with good asset management, and one who can stay patient and earn trust of MLSE (if team doesn't make the playoffs next year, blow it up) #No3rdYearOption

    2. A new coach, a complete coach, or at least one that knows how to sub a damn player into a game.

    3. A big man, who has a presence on both ends of the court, and a consistent rebounder.

    4. Back-up point guard, one that doesn't average a technical foul a game, and one that doesn't shoot 4000 shots, and makes 2.

    5. A veteran/defensive wing i.e Tony Allen, Dahntay Jones, Raja Bell.

    6. Veteran, whether it be a big, guard, wing, I don't care. This team SERIOUSLY lacks leadership. Casey is a great motivator, I'll give him that, but at some point, with all the losing and bull-shit he throws out, the team will start to tune him out (I personally would like to smack him silly so he stops talking about stupid shit we all know about, or what the team pretty much WON'T do).

    I personally don't see Fields and Lowry going anywhere, in my opinion, keep Fields, I like the way he plays, and is a nice balance to our inefficient wings (rebounder, defender, off-ball cuts, slasher, passer), and pick up the phone on Lowry.

    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.

    This offseason is going to be dreadful. I suspect the following:

    - Bryan's option will be picked up for one more year.
    - Casey will be back as head coach
    - Bargnani will get traded but nothing major will be coming back the other way (ie, no Boozer).
    - Kleiza will be amnestied
    - Rudy Gay will get an extension
    - AA will be back
    - OKC will get the 7th pick in the draft

    im praying they blow it up even though it is competely unlikely. management has to realize by now that our only shot at relevance is full on tanking for wiggins if not parker atleast. ross,wiggins,jv is something you can build around. a bunch of inefficient flawed players is not.

    I think it would be in the organizations best interest to get VC back in Rap uniform to be our vet scorer off the bench beside Ross.... But then what would we do with Fields?? lol

    This makes no sense...Ross should easily develop into a bench scorer, and you want to bring back one of the most polarizing figures in the franchise's history to take that very role?? I don't get it.
