Do I see anything wrong with "wishing" upon a player a better situation than 99.9% of the humans alive on this planet will ever experience? Nope. Context is required for that, but nobody seems to be able to actually get past their moral outrage, pull back and objectively consider how completely inconsequential such an injury would be for the player and how insanely good their life would continue to be. Hell, I'll bet there are players (on bad teams especially) that would LOVE to sit on the injury reserve while collecting a paycheque - remember that Toronto fans have accused many Raptors of just that.
But yeah, I'm just an evil person because no one can get past the word 'injury'. The outrage you guys are showing is beyond funny, but then you're probably mad that all this posting is taking away from the time you normally spend volunteering at the hospital, feeding the homeless and generally erasing human pain and suffering from the planet, right?
WIN WIN and only WIN
Create a winning culture, let Casey get his system in, let them play. Give them a chance, to take that away from them for some hope of an unknown kid to carry the team in another 3 years, when these guys have worked so hard is BULLSHIT.
Go after Wiggins as a free agent, chance to play for your home city, home country. Kid has dreamed it already. Better chance to land him this way. They are no way positioned to lose more than other bottom feeders.
Your a Fan, do your job and cheer for them, for christ sake.
Maybe its just me but I think this thread is an insult to the coaches and players. Someone even going as far as hoping for injuries.
I'm pulling for Kelly Olynyk in the opener, Toronto born, national team member, Gonzaga grad (go Zags!).
This game can't come soon enough! 3 days still feels way too far away.
Where are the mods on this one?
WAAAY too many personal attacks for my liking.

I would love to see 82 ganes of a young, exciting and hard working squad, one that see's JV, DD, And TR turn a big corner, yet somehow cannot manage to win more than 6 games.
Toronto needs Wiggans.
I will never cheer for the team to lose when there's a shot for them. When they're eliminated from the playoffs, or if they start 4-19, sure blow it up. But I'm not starting a brand new season with a loser's mentality.
"This just in........ THE RAPTORS ARE AMAZING!"
I don't see how the Raptors can get good value for their players while also losing enough to get a high draft pick.
If you want them to get end up with a worse record than Boston with no one hurting their trade value, you should probably just not watch any games this season. I mean, the refs can only fuck them over so many times this year before it becomes suspicious.
You gotta root for the Raptors once the ball gets thrown up in the air.
By the way, I'll be in Toronto this week and have tickets to the home opener. Are there others from the forum who will be in attendance that night?
