I absolutely agree. Call it what you want, "culture change", "building", we need to start playing with pride (which we have been as of late). Whether that equates to making the playoffs or not, 'no expectations' is what I've been hearing a lot in post game interviews from the players. If we do tank (which is crap, IMO) it just takes away from what Casey is trying to instill on this team. Professionalism, Accountability and Dedication to the team. I don't remember a time during the Raptors era where we had a coach who actually cared for the development of this team. I don't consider the early-Wilkens era to be as significant because he practically inherited a team with a bonafide superstar in VC. Whereas right now, Casey is turning around a team which is pretty close to the same team we had last year and we have a ROCK! And by tanking, it surely doesn't ensure us of any guaranteed placement when the ball drops (last year we were projected to 'earn' a top 3 pick). Anyway, we can likely trade our assets for a higher pick if needed. For example, weren't the Spurs dangling Tony Parker for OUR 5th pick? Thank GOD BC decided to keep our pick. I feel we enough young players to develop, especially with JV set to make his Raptors debut. By showcasing this year that we're an up-and-coming team, it's a possibility that we can land a pretty good FA and/or make the perception of Toronto (or Canada for that matter), not a bad place to be. Who was that US college player that sort of refute the idea of playing for the Raptors because he didn't like travelling through customs? Perry Jones?????
