    I agree which is why I think BC might send away the parts he does not see as part of the future for virtually nothing (TPE, late draft picks, cap space this summer) if the other eastern conference teams don't start putting it all together. Obviously there are pro's and con's to this line of thinking.

    This is not a fanboy post.

    I am a tough critic of Raps and Many of Colangelo's moves.

    Raps are 2 games out of 8th 3 games out of 7th why are they playoff bound?

    1) They are defending (finally the raps are hard to score on)
    2) After that rough January they are getting stronger not ready to mail in the season
    3) 14 road games 7 home games played (nuff said)
    4) Dwane Casey has them buying in. He is a wonderful coach and they are listening to him - team is playing hard and unselfish.

    Neeto stat: James Johnson is 9th in the league in blocked shots (who knows how many altered or deflected shots) I know many disagree with me but I think he is almost becoming a Pippen-esque type of defender. He is everywhere.

    James Johnson 27 games 490 mins -> 35 blocks
    Rafael Araujo 139 games 1585 mins -> 16 blocks

    I know draft watchers wanted a tank season - I think they will be disappointed. But this is good for the team.
    do we really have to start this? stop setting yourself up for dissapointment!

    With healthy Bargnani on court, everything is possible...

    The Change from the LAC game to Utah/Phoenix to Denver to NJ to Atlanta game shows why I don't think the Raptors have a chance at making the playoffs. They are wildly inconsistent (two games versus New Jersey are perfect examples) and don't have the talent to match up with the better/top teams like Atlanta.


    Luckily, this season is all about that beaten to death expression of 'culture change' and there has certainly been a lot of that happening. The next step is to get the talent to make the team consistent in its play.

    Don't worry about it! I agree japetas, Bargnani is this teams x factor. When he returns the team does have the potential to surge but he can't help his teammates knock down shots, he can only give them more space. It's because of this that I just can't see them getting it done. My biggest fear would be them playing their way out of a high lottery pick but not playing well enough to make the playoffs. Then they're left with a pick in the range they drafted Ed Davis. Or in other words, low enough to maybe get a steal but not low enough to likely draft a franchise player.

    UCONN would have beat them the way they were playing last night.
