    Ture, but we were on the verge and went all in with that hand. AND the team attendance was having a rough time because they were a new Franchise. MLSE probably spent $$ to ensure their investment would stay strong. Not like to today. It will sells out no matter what....SO far.

    Raps History:

    1995- Hello NBA & Stoudamire!
    1996- Draft Marcus Camby
    1997- Injuries & Isiah Thomas U SUCK! Draft T-Mac
    1998- Welcome Grunwald! Shake up this mess. Keep the youth & get Vets Oakley, Kevin Willis, New Tough coach Butch Carter to help youth develop. ROOKIE Carter, Doug Christie & T-Mac's Comming Out Party! The beginning of the end for Alvins knees. Thank-You Alvin!
    1999- Bring in Antonio Davis to help in playoffs. Damn! The Knick just won 4 striaght. 1 round exit.
    2000- Christie traded for Corliss Williamson Opppsss... then Jerome Williams JYD. Hello Lenny Wilkens & Mark 'The Preacher' Jackson to help Alvins knees. Media LOVES Vince and ignores T-Mac. T-Mac Free Agent to Magic we got NOTHING.

    ***THE BEGINNING OF THE END***

    No need to say more. It's all downhill from here.... BUT the return on investment is still great!

    I already commented on that. I said that with a mix of drafted players and overpaid FAs (and with some creative trades..add on) you might be able to create winning team. Do you think it's automatically gonna happen, us becoming a winning team? It takes some time.

    Maybe you should heed to your own advice, friend.
    maybe u need to read three times LOL

    wasnt saying anything about anything happening over night.

    only comment i made directed at u was that its like the chickin & egg dilema, what comes first winning or winning players. & its quite obvious.

    everything else was assumed by u & i corrected u

    to say i should heed my own advice would be assuming again!

    Toronto has always been pretty good for attendance.

    agreed

    it just seemed like there wasnt many people at the game when they were playing in the skydome.

    that building was just way too big for basketball

    Someone has to respond to these two idiots and address these ridiculous comments head on.
    If not, we will continue to hear more inbelievable bs.
    Obviously they have an audience that treats everything that comes out of their mouths as gospel.
