    Default What happened to Tim W?

    I'm just curious, why doesn't Tim W seem to write articles anymore for this site? Did something happen?

    It was time for a break for Tim. Hopefully we'll see him back next season.

    I was getting upset at Tim W's consistent whining. He had 0 faith in this team, and thats excusable, but he tried just about every rhetoric tactic to spread his pessimism. This team has put up their collective middle fingers in 'I told you so' spite, and Tim W has not been seen since.
    The Baltic Beast is unstoppable!

    Yes, I used to read the front page long before I posted here and he was constantly negative. He was certainly on team tank and didn't appear too happy when that didn't work out. I think the last article I read of his was titled something like " Raptors reach .500, Yay for Mediocrity". Stopped visiting the front page after that.

    I must say that i'm happy we don't have to read his super negative pieces after wins anymore. I like other perspectives but Tim W. just kept pushing the same agenda over and over again....tank tank tank....we suck.....ugh. Good riddance! The only Tim i care to hear from on this site is Chisholm.

    From a big picture Tim is still right and his articles served more as a warning to temper expectations.

    But there's no sense in dwelling on what we might/might not do in 2 years' time. After years of turmoil, at this point I'm just ready to enjoy the magic of playoffs. You never know what can happen.. maybe Chris Bosh rolls an ankle, Lebron fractures his hand, Hibbert develops plantar fasciitis... you never know
    your pal,

    both perspectives are needed.

    at this point in time, we're facing brooklyn in the first round. seems unlikely we'll get past them, let alone any chance vs the heat.

    nothing is going to be worst next year when the other tanking teams draft all the hyped up crazy / now not as hyped but still good / no one actually knows anything about drafting / young players who may or may not make an impact, while we'll most likely lose half of our bench.

    hayes has to probably stay. who knows about hansborough/vasquez/de colo or even whats going to happen with amir and lowry. salmons will definitely be gone. no one said this building process is linear and we could easily go the way of the nuggets next season, who won 50+ games last year and then go on to have the most mediocre shit season this year.

    point is, keeping everything 'positive' by hiding away all the realities just to make ourselves feel better *right now* is stupid.

    i disagree that theres "no sense in dwelling on what we might/might not do in 2 years' time". if anything, that'll probably be when the raptors will matter the most.
