    Default meanwhile in alternative-land..

    Raptors up 3 games to none over the Bucs looking to clinch their first round win with a sweep.

    For all the fans wishing we had finished fourth plotting their second round fight against the Hawks, here's a big go fuck yourselves you know-nothing doofuses. Play who you play, try to finish as high as you can, look past your opponent and you get an anal raping like we're experiencing.

    All I can express is, what a fucking waste of a season that was. So much time, effort, and energy devoted to it and to fall so flat and anti-climatic, it just makes me want to barf.

    I have so many questions, but I'm just going to shut down and pretend sports don't matter anymore (which they do).

    and secretly believe it or not I still have faith we can become the 1st team ever to come back from 3-0.

    Casey would have lost to Kidd just as bad. Bucks don't look bad vs Bulls

    LOL honestly Jason Kidd would outcoach Casey. It would probably end up going to 7 games and somehow the Raptors would lose, especially given how Lowry, Lou, and JV in particular have been struggling

    @OP This is the result that was required for Masai to be able to do whatever he wants in the offseason. Bucks probably would have beaten us with their length anyways. Cry all you want but this was necessary, if you cant beat the Wizards you can't be the Champions. Dry your eyes, pick up yor vagina and dust yourself off cause this team aint what you think it is.

    Lol, who cares who the fans wish for - at the end of the day, it is not on them who the Raptors get.

    HAHAHAH! What a dumb thread.

    I dsagree with the lot of you. The raptors wouldn't have this problem against an inexperienced Bucks team. And then we'd be praising every one of them instead of suggesting the idiotic move of tanking. Get your heads out of your asses you fools, tanking is the stupidest thing I have read on this website.

    Of course it's not on the fans who the Raptors get - but all I read about this season was positioning in the playoffs, playing the Wiz is better BLAH BLAH BLAH. We get what we deserve.

    Oh and Pierce - what a fucking giant of a man. Hit that 3 to seal the game, open his mouth before game 1 to seal the series.

    The Bucks have an even better wing defence than the wiz. We would have been struggling to score 80 points a game against them. Playing the Bucks would have ended up worse than this.

    I've watched some of the bucks vs. bulls series and I have a feeling we'd be losing to the bucks right now as well

    They are not going to be tanking, just a serious readjustment on the fly. As it stands Amir, Lou Will, Hansbrough, Hayes, Fields & Steimsma are all free agents, so there are decisions to be made and Masai is no stranger to change. Everyone probably is available now and after a crap series like this I wouldnt see it any other way. This team (players n coaches) really has no concept of making the right play at the right time, it all appears to be luck when it goes right. Also they have no concept of feeding the hot hand.

    All in all, the only player I dont want put on the open market is Patrick Patterson. Everyone else should be made available in order for Masai to be able to get the most done possible in the summer with keeping the team competitive. We must remember that the East sucks and probably will next year as well. Oh and coaching staff should go as well.

    Yeah, I doubt we get swept by them, but losing in 6 to the Bucks may be just as bad a look as getting potentially swept or losing in 5 to the Wiz. At least the Wizards are a decent team - the Bucks were sucking so much harder than either the Wiz or Raps heading into the playoffs.

    The Bucks would have given us fits too. Not at all confidant we could have beaten them.

    LMAO...

    If you think Otto Porter is a stellar defender, imagine Giannis on Demar. Shut down.

    Masai has been able to do whatever he wanted for two years. He is the President and General Manager. This result was only necessary if you think he's bound by optics, and if he's bound by optics he's probably not the right guy for the job. Because if we'd beaten the Bucks and kept the core intact, we'd have the same damn problems next season.

    The guy got 100% support from the fans and the city. This is his summer to show us what he got. I have a feeling that he will fire the coach, trade KL and DD for some late first round players and will sing the rebuild song.

    I could be wrong, but the way I see it is Masai didnt want to spoil a good thing. He tried to tank with the Rudy trade but it backfired; he tried to trade Lowry but Dolan ultimately rejected it and finally they made the playoffs and had a heck of a series against a very experienced Nets teams. At that point he added what he thought was necessary in James Johnson & Lou Williams for defense & scoring respectively, and who could argue. The fact that this season/playoffs ended the way it did and add to that the lack of execution and their concepts looking elementary; it is clear for even a homer fan to see that it is time for mass exodus and when you already have 6 free agents it makes it that much easier. And the entire coaching staff should be a part of that mass exodus, they gotta bring in a head coach with some serious cred who will put together a serious coaching staff.

    geez...this is how we want to go through the playoffs, pussyfooting around decent opposition. Unreal.

    If we got swept by the Wizards, I don't care to see how we would've done against the Hawks anyways.

    I am glad the Wizards exposed the Raptor,s it is a wake up call this franchise needed and answers any speculation as to whether this team is any good or just a beneficiary of a weak division.

    Is that a tune you'll dance too?

    Here's what I think will happen. He'll make a run at some major-ish free agents, strike out, and then make periphery signings (like the ones he made last year). He will quietly shop Demar and Lowry. If he gets a deal he likes, he'll trade either-or both (sort of like Celtics). If not, he runs back the same core for another first round exit. Who knows, maybe a new coach gets a little more out of Ross and/or JV, and we get the playoff results we were supposed to get this year (hard fought second round out).
