    Default Can we do this instead?

    Instead of making a petition to tank... Which all raptor fans are obviously not for... Can we come up with one to trade gay or fire casey, especially the latter because this is what more or less all of us want at this time.

    I think you mean the former, because trading Gay would have a much better impact than firing Casey. Casey looks bad because of Gay more than Gay looks bad because of Casey.

    Either way, I'll sign a petition, I'll hashtag, hell I'll even Ask Matt. TRADE GAY, YESTERDAY! TRADE GAY, YESTERDAY!

    I really want both gone equally.
    I agree, but Casey is still having a very negative impact on this team.

    When it comes to Casey, my biggest issue is really a personal thing:
    I hate what a fraud he is.
    I hate how he tries to put a shine on shit.
    I hate how he doesn't own up to his failures.
    No coach in their right mind would try to put a positive spin on that GS game.
    But he did.

    Casey - what?
    Just stop.
    It's not them - it you.
    It's always you.

    Rudy to Charlotte for Ben Gordon & Bismack Biyombo.
    Or as an expansion, add Lowry and Sessions.

    Charlotte signing l Jefferson says, let's make playoffs ... MKG is gone for 6 weeks, and they need upgrades.

    Casey is not a good tactician. HE is a good blue collar coach, gets a lot out of tough under skilled units ... not a good team.
    The only way to bag a classy lady is to give her two tickets to the gun show... and see if she likes the goods.

    That rock is not as big as it looks in your picture. Phoney gimmick phrase means nothing.

    How about 'we just gotta make more shots' from the Sam Mitchell era. Why can Raptors never get the right coach? Butch Carter is the only coach in recent history that was the right fit for that team at that time. I really believe that a SVG, jerry Sloan or George Karl would have a significant positive impact on this team. I guess MU though has to tread carefully as the next coach will be on him not BC.

    Charlotte makes so much sense.

    It allows MKG to develop his offensive game versus other teams second line.

    Rudy opts out and leaves, you still have MKG.
    Rudy stays for his option, you still have MKG developing in his 3rd year at 21 years of age.

    Question is the price. If Charlotte gives up that Detroit pick, I'm so in.

    I'm starting to think that I would be satisfied with the Portland pick. Gordon, Biyombo, and Portland Pick. I would obviously prefer the Detroit pick, but I would still be content with taking Portland's.

    Let's get a 3rd petition setup advocating combining the first two petitions!

    This was my reaction too.

    Why can't we have all three?

    If we only trade Gay for scraps and replace Casey then it sounds like more treadmilling is on deck.

    Yup, a little too much short-sightedness in thinking this season is at all salvageable (or even worth salvaging).

    Like Grange mentioned in his article, Masai is 1 month into a 5 year project. With eventual championship aspirations, he shouldn't care that the fanbase has been starved of the playoffs for so long. His only focus should be how best to build a championship team from this point forward.

    Foregoing the best draft in 10 years to support a 35-win 4th seeded team, doesn't support that goal.

    A petition??
    What are we trying to get pizza pockets back on the cafeteria menu? If a GM listens to a petition he needs to have his ass fired on the spot.

    I was thinking about Gay & 2014 2nd round pick for Gordon & 2 x 2014 1st round picks (being greedy, but there wouldn't be a huge spread between Portland's 1st round pick and Toronto's 2nd round pick). It allows Charlotte to keep their prospects while giving up one draft pick (and moving another pick back 5-10 spots).
