    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.
    Yes because the Republic is a hive-mind entity. We're all like the Borg. There are no individual opinions here.

    My apologies for demanding a little more than mediocrity. How dare I expect to have a winning team!!

    well anyways hopefully James Johnson plays some better defence. I really think we need an amazing PG or SF from the upcoming draft to help us improve, cuz those 2 positions r sorta weak. Sure Calderon is good, but he doesn't score much, and Weems has some nights where he scores 17 + but he's more of a SG and not to mention he's too small to guard taller SF's(hopefully James Johnson can get better and take on the starting role).

    I don't think that's very fair. I think if you page through most threads in here there are debates going back and forth. I have yet to see a thread in recent memory where everyone thought the same thing. Most times the board is split on everything.

    That's what I was getting at. I was being sarcastic.

    Some nights? Weems was consistently putting up great %s before he got hurt. You can't say he doesn't put up 17+ when he doesn't really get the shot attempts to put up those #s.

    A lot of the game he's played he shoot better then 50% and out of the rest most were 40%+.

    True but he can't create his own shot. Just catches and fires. And he's more of a SG so i still wouldn't start him. Wtf is he going to do if he's Guarding guys like fckin Kevin Durant? like i said before he's too small. We need a bigger stronger guy to play SF, James Johnson can hopefully be that guy if they give him some playing time.
