I just don't think you're a very good team if he's your best player. You brought up the Rockets finishing ninth like that's a good thing, but I think it just proves my point to be correct. Being a fringe playoff team isn't what I equate with being a good squad.
Sorry for the rant... I actually do like the Lowry deal (we needed the change) and he kind of reminds me of an older version of Lillard (who I was in love with prior to the draft). Just don't tell me that he knows how to win or that he is better than Nash... I hope he continues to improve and mature his own game while finding a way to make everyone else better too... oh yeah and bring us back to the playoffs (not expecting much).

I was OK with the idea of Bayless as a backup PG but you have to admit, the contract he signed once he became an UFA tells us teams were not exactly lining up to bid for his services.
Bayless could turn into Billups but what is the likelihood of this happening? 5 to 10% tops maybe? It's not worth holding on to a player just for such a long shot.
The recent dumping of Bayless and JJohnson is further evidence of why MLSE is the worst ownership group in all of sports. If you look at their properties the proof is in the pudding.
TFC - never made the playoffs always in turmoil
Bluejays 2 decades since they have played a meaningful game past August
Leafs - longest playoff drought
Raptors - always in lottery
why do these teams always suck?
MLSE only cares about bottom line. They continually dump financial obligations and get nothing in return in order to keep the bottom line as tidy as possible.
That is why they won't allow BC to amnesty Calderon (because they we still have to pay his salary even though it would not count against the cap).
That is why they are dumping Bayless and JJohnson for Nothing in return. Nothing - it is a f***ing travesty. Those two players might not be the answer but each showed promise and were not too big a burden to keep under salary.
Remember that TPE from the Bosh trade? - there is another 9 mill they could have used...what happened?
Lets see what they do with the cap space - and I highly doubt they will take back a comparable salary in Calderon Trade... BC will be using his diminishing credibility to talk about "...cap flexibility moving forward..." .
Flexibility which will never ever be used - gawd I wish one Toronto team had a good owner instead they all got the same sh***y bunch of bean counters
"I may be wrong ... but I doubt it"
Ah, the young! Overreacting every time someone move their cheese or trade or of their heroes.
The Jays aren't MLSE
So stupid how every single perceived negative thread gets merged into here. Separate discussion about the capability of the GM, the trust in ownership, and the quality of the team all get dumped in here. I still cant see any movitivion behind it other than the mods just like to merge threads to reinforce to themselves that they are in fact moderators.
Bringing a tiny element - if it's not just the usual hyperbolic rant - does not warrant a new thread.
NoBan: Separate discussion gets merging inappropriately. Talk about the ownership, GM and players are separate discussions
NoPropsNeeded: You complain about the same issues.
Maybe I'm bias here, but that's just completely disregarding my point without providing anything in response.
Lol I complain about the same issues? Give me some proof. That's probably why this thread is mostly full of your posts not mine right ?
