    Who is not enjoying winning?

    Who is not enjoying quality basketball?

    What is wrong questioning the sustainability of this winning - especially on a fan forum?

    I believe cults are where you blindly accept what you are given.

    As for Lowry, I believe taking him off the Raptors will be much more like taking LeBron off the Cavs versus taking Melo off the Nuggets.
    The one thing I would advise all Raptor fans is that in our scenario there could be someone better than Lowry, which is attainable in a trade or free agency that may make this team better. He's the best thing going for us in a long time, but if Kyle Lowry does not sign with the Raptors, it does not mean the Raptors can't build on this season. TL and MU are as good as it gets in this business so lets have a little faith.

    That is a good point too.

    However free agency is not looking promising for free agents this year. Maybe there is a diamond in the rough sitting on someone's bench?

    The trade route might be an option but to get anyone established, what do the Raptors have to give up? The draft is always a crap shoot but you never know. Last year no one saw MCW having a rookie season like he has had. This year no one saw Tyler Ennis coming out like he has at Syracuse. Ennis is having arguably the biggest impact of any freshman this season.

    One think Leiweke did say is that they will look at any means of improving as long as it does not compromise young assets and draft picks.

    A lot of posters seem to think any discussion of change or what happens beyond this season is negative. I disagree with that. This is a really exciting time for the Raptors. New ownership, new leadership, new front office, free of Bargnani, exciting players with potential still untapped. I love the business side (CBA, contracts, trades) of things nearly as much as the on court product.

    Anyways, it really is an exciting time for the Raptors..... regardless if you think they are only moving forward or they might have to take a step back to really move ahead.

    except at the draft, which is all homework, politics and chance.

    I don't thinks M Steins report is based on any source. He's simply speculating and it's valid. It's only logical to think that Ujiri will try to sign Lowry to an extension before the trade deadline and consider trading him if he (Lowry) is unwilling.

    However, I think it would take an irresistible offer to force Ujiri to do that. Considering the way things are going, it's very possible that he will keep the team undisturbed going into the play-offs.
    I agree with your assessment. It is fine to speculate. I appreciate the lack of leaks from MU in this regard.

    Yeah I don't agree with that at all. Look beyond the stats.

    I also disagree with article saying that Lin is popular in Toronto. Is he? I mean Linsanity was big everywhere but you haven't heard a peep about him around here since. I haven't anyway. I guess he's not unpopular so you could say it's true. Not like he wouldn't be welcomed, but a worthy replacement for trading away the heart of the team? No one will buy that.
    I'd think he'd be popular around. Gotta think multiculturalism. When he hit that game-winner against us a while back, the arena was like a Knicks home game.
