    I love post draft message boards! Every year there's a few dozen people saying they gonna give up on the Raptors.

    People are just mad he didn't take someone ESPN was in love with. Big deal. BC has experience selecting successful Players. ESPN hasn't had a single Mock Draft right in 20 years probably.

    BC has a history of making good selections in the draft. Cool down and let the season get underway after a full training camp with Casey.

    BC has a good draft history. Let it play out before ranting about the complete unknown.

    It's obvious that Colangelo wants to make a splash in free-agency, so reserve judgement until then please.

    Its a major feat for a 2nd round pick to become a vet in the NBA if you look at the odds.

    Default This team is a joke. We have a losing culture.

    Demar and Davis will never be good enough to crack a contender's rotation. Neither have improved since getting on this team and both have terrible trade value. Davis, in particular, routinely looks overwhelmed.

    Bargnani has peaked as a injury-prone jump shooter with zero nose for the ball & average-at-very-best defending. Oh, and he's not actually that great of a shooter.

    We've baffled draft experts again (with both our picks); I've yet to see 1 clip of Ross doing a move he could actually pull of against an NBA defender.

    We have 2 player with a passible basketball IQ and we're rumoured to amnisty one (Jose) and the other has a contract the other teams laugh at (Amir).

    The starting SF couldn't crack Chicago's rotation and has a higher % of body fat than the coach.

    Matt and Leo are BRUTAL (especially Leo). Raps TV have zero decent original programming. Jones and Hamilton are among the worst sports analysts I've ever seen.

    Our GM has steadily risen to the become the league's biggest front office laughing stock. He continually gets played by agents like a drum and NOBODY that follows the team trusts him.

    Gary frickin Forbes is a rotation player for us.

    Fans are banking on FA's to come here but our biggest signings ever are Hakeem Olajawan's corpse and Linus Keilza.

    Our 2 hopes for a successful season are Steve Nash (37 years old, not coming here) and an extremely raw talent that we desperately need to become one of the top 5 Euro players of all time, who's "needs improvement" categories include 1 on 1 defense, learning NBA rotations and post offense.

    Our mascot is ugly

    Our games are never on the same channel.

    We are owned the the same people the own the goddamn Leafs.

    We have a decent coach and decent looking uniforms, hang your hats on that gentlemen. See you in the lottery next year (when we will undoubtedly blow the pick).

    The only thing that's a f***ing joke around here is this post. If you don't like the raptors no ones telling you to be here. Just don't come back bandwagoning when we make the playoffs

    Why you be getting so pessimistic? I mean get out and just don't cheer for the Raps if you don't like 'em. Half of the things you said are not true and in fact we have a lot of chances to get Nash, and opposite to a lot of y'all I'll be extremely happy if we get him. It's Steve Nash guys! STEVE NASH! Take a second and think. Best Canadian player ever, future all of famer, one of the best point guards of all time, true leader, unselfish, charismatic, highlight maker, winner, etc... I'd take him on the team even if he was 65.

    DeMar has improved. Davis has had no summer league and no training camp since he entered the league...and has still managed some improvement. This point is incorrect (X)

    Actually he hasn't peaked. But if did peak as a guy that averaged 23 points 6 boards and wasn't a defensive liability...I'd say thats a good ten million dollar deal...when you consider Tyrus Thoms 5 pts 3 brds gets like 1 million less. Your second point is incorrect (X)

    No we haven't and you haven't watched enough clips, or likely any (X)

    Nobody laughs at Amir's contract...6 million is very reasonable for what he does. Calderon, Bargnani, Kleiza, Magloire, all have great basketball IQs DeMar, Bayless, Johnson & Johnson all have passable to good ones. (X)

    Not this year (1/2) unless someone gets injured and then he will play spot minutes. Or he gets good and then who cares.

    Steve Nash - very good chance he will come here (X)
    JV - is not extremely raw and everyone needs improvement (X)

    If we are in the lottery it will be as 13th or 14th pick. I think an extra 20 wins is an acceptable improvement for one season. We haven't blown a pick (Ross, JV, Davis, DeRozan) in four years. (1/2)

    Overall Mark 8.5/19 = F
