    Default Raptors are falling apart

    This is so boring watching the raptors lose game after game. I almost fell asleep today watching the game. They are just completely falling apart, we played terrible defence. Boris diaw and gerald wallace were destroying us driving and getting fouled and making free throws. What do you guys think is the problem?

    lol... you said "falling"! Dude, they FELL apart about this time last season and never got it back together... Lack of true talent and toughness is my diagnosis. There's not much to say when they stink as bad as they do right now, just hold out hope that our draft pick turns out to be a great one.

    How does one continue to fall when he is already lying down on the ground?

    Raptors are fighters. When they fall down they get right back up.

    Look on the bright side. Bargs lead the team in rebounds (8) and Money seems to be healthy again (9-13 with team leading 19 points). Weems has actually played rather well the last 3 games (not including heat game)

    Don't worry about it, soon they will get the itch and play 500 ball for the last six weeks of the season when nothing matters anymore thus eliminating the chance of getting a top draft pick again.

    If you're disappointed in all the losses, you should have seen it coming. If you mean you thought they'd actually compete hard and try to prove they ain't scrubs then I feel you. I mean, I at least expect a couple emphatic dunks or sweet dimes a week, but that seems to be a rarity within a month. But to be honest, if I was losing that much it would be dropping my morale a heck of a lot, but these guys make millions, so no excuses.

    Well said.
    I have no idea who Chukwudiebere Maduabum is, but on his Draft Express profile, hes listed as Chu Chu. I think hes worthy of picking just for that. He immediately is in the running for best All-Time NBA name. -Tim W.

    It is actually quite simple. When a team plays no defense , they lose. Not much else to it. We do have some talent on this team but if you play swiss cheese defense, your not going to win. No matter how much you score.

    Raptors win
    Republic: Oh my god they're damaging their draft pick!! This team needs to understand that losing is necessary in order to get better.

    Raptors lose
    Republic: This team sucks and is falling apart! Trade Bargs and derozan for draft picks and cap space. Fire Colangelo! MLSE is a joke!

    Yall are some fickle mother fuckers.

    They are what they are! NOT A GOOD BASKETBALL TEAM!! Simple as that! You don't need to be a ROCKET SCIENTIST to figure that out that they have NO DEFENSE AT ALL ! You just can't win games with NO DEFENSE! The thing is that they have a good draft pick coming and good cap space; they have expiring contracts and they are a YOUNG TEAM that can grow into a GOOD TEAM. Let's face it we are in better shape then a lot of the NBA teams that are not going to make the playoffs! We as RAPTOR FANS just have to sit back and take the loses this year and hope that a young team with more experience and a good draft pick and a couple of fill in's can come back and play a lot better as a team next year!! They will get better just we have to give them some time and we don't want to take on any bad contracts of some veteran who is in their waning years; thats not the way to build a team!! So Raptor fans hang in there and be patient and wait and cheer on the young guys!!

    Something that hasn't been put back together again can't fall apart. This season is typical of a year one rebuild. Nothing unusual is really going on no matter how hard it is to watch at times.

    I keep coming back to playing style...no defense. This results from a combination of lack of leadership, willingness/heart, coaching style/substance and of course talent...with talent in my view being the smallest component when it comes to playing D. Any team that does play half decent D would not lose this way especially to a team like the Bobcats. The coach & gm must now start demanding (late as it is) that this be done or the rot will just set in deeper as a culture.

    Aren't the Raps in year 5 of a rebuild? Or are they starting over this year? Is this now Year Zero? I thought that was 2006. Or
    2005? Anyway, there seems to be a completely new roster every year so it gets confusing. Plus, having sat through the expansion years, the post-Carter years, the Babcock era, and the epic fail of a rebuild from BC and Company (this was the last rebuild that was pre-empted by this new rebuild apparently) I am pretty much all rebuilded out.

    When they lost their star player to Miami they officially began year one of a new rebuild. Better get used to more rebuilding. No matter who is in the drivers seat you have to put up with another three years of it now...
