    Default Yahoo Sports Reflects On The Raptors For 2010

    The Good: Retro uniforms

    Things are pretty bad when the highlight of the year is a uniform change. The Raptors unveiled retro uniforms honouring the Toronto Huskies and wore them for six games in 2010.
    The Bad: Hedo Turkoglu(notes)

    Okay, technically his mammoth five-year, $53-million contract with the Raptors was signed in 2009. But Turkogluís fall from grace really took place in 2010.

    By early 2010 he had drawn the fansí ire with his poor production but things took a turn for the worse on a personal level in March. Turkoglu sat out a game with a stomach virus but that same night was caught hitting the clubs in Toronto.
    The Ugly: The Chris Bosh fiasco

    Speaking of falling from grace, the Raptorsí franchise leader in just about everything, Chris Bosh, finally said goodbye to the team on July 7.

    Bosh spent his last season in Toronto at times looking like an MVP candidate, then looking like he quit, then sitting on the bench with injuries as the Raptors fell one game short of the final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference.

    Only slightly insulting I suppose. haha We were making a push for 4th at the All Star break, so I still see that as more of a highlight then those Uni's... But they are reeally cool. haha
    Other than that, Yahoo pretty much nailed it.

    Typical American media... the only good thing you can come up with is the retro uniforms? And even then they poke fun at it.

    To be fair, what else have we done this year that's remotely memorable?

    This was about the 2009-2010 season. It really wasn't that bad until the end...

    Yep, found myself remindin' folks we were a couple games back of the 4th spot last year at the All-Star break. Then Bosh decided he needed a fully functunal face to play basketball.
