    Default Its Really Tough to Be a Raptors Fan Right Now

    We keep losing our best players every 4-5 years and management is too inept to build a winner while the croonies owners care more about making a quick buck then winning.

    *Sigh*

    Hey man, it could be ALOT worse. Think, Memphis, NJ the last few years, Clippers, Sacramento, GSW. At least we have a competent GM who is trying his best. In the last couple years we've seen lots of talent come through, O'Neal, Marion, CB4.

    Davis and Demar should break out this year too, stay positive.

    Just wait, this time is it. I'm not sayign we'll win a title, but with Derozen, Bargs and big Ed we're going to compete in the east for the rest of the decade. I'm personaly very excited.

    We have bright future, but no doubt we'll resemble the Nets from last season next year. Like I said the other day, no expectations at all. Just be fun to watch a bunch of young players give their all and experience their development.

    With the way things have gone in the past and seem to continue to be going Bargs will be traded and Derozen + Ed will (if they become stars) either leave on their own or demand a trade in 4-7 year.

    Look on the brightside too guys, Harrison Barnes is going to be a stud and would look nice as our starting SF down the road.

    Go Tarheels.

    even with bosh going to the heat, the eastern conference still sucks balls...

    the raps sneaking in as an 8th seed in the playoffs isnt so far fetched... not likely, but not impossible..

    When has it been easy though? More tough times than good ones.

    Seeing how we're clearing rebuilding now, I'd rather have the lotto pick myself. But that's just me.

    Yeah, I think the best result possible is a good lottery pick. A worst case scenario is finishing eighth, getting swept by the Heat in the first round, and then watching the Heat use our draft pick.

    I seriously want a S&T to go down with Miami
    i just want our pick back so we can have a high second round pick as well

    were in rebuild mode guys, no 8th place
    plus what is the point of making the playoffs as an 8th seed just to get sweeped?
    time to buckle down and prepare for a 20 win season

    Who wants to wear paper bags over their heads to games? I think Bargs is going to be better then Bosh, we still have Turk, Jose, and Jack for vets, surrounded by a handful of inspired rookies. Why is this bad? There's been a chris bosh cloud looming over this team for the last couple years, where he was the teams main focus. This is refreshing to me, the fact that this team is going to have a different identity come september. Do we know what it is? No. But I am damn excited to see what transpires.

    Its been tough to be any Toronto fan, for me i follow the leafs and the raptors with a lot of passion...i get fans of montreal making fun of the leafs and i get "fans" of the lakers/any powerhouse team in the NBA laughing at the fact I love the Raptors when they live in Toronto as well (i hate bandwagon jumpers)..but anyways I dont care i just see how we now have a solid core of young players and soon we will be back in the playoffs with something to prove.
