    Default Do you ever get the feeling there’s an NBA going on and we’re just not part of it?

    A quote from Steve Simmons from the Toronto Sun.... anyway I feel this way !

    All the news of recent and proposed free agent signings and we are on the sidelines. Oh, I forgot Aaron Gray.

    Maybe it is true that Toronto will not be competitive with US markets for free agents until we start winning and the best way to build a winner is through trades and the draft.

    Yet sometimes I think Toronto is being marginalized by the NBA media. Just once I would love to see the Raptors front office pull off a deal that will quiet the naysayers and elevate Toronto's profile in the league.


    When I look at the changes made so far ...gone are Forbes, Butler, Carter, Alabi and Bayless coming in are Valanciunas,Landry, Ross, Fields.???? we have improved the talent level. But we're not there yet!

    Remember Vinsanity? All it takes is a competitive team.

    BTW, kudos to the republic during the whole Nash/Fields/Lowry ordeal. I've been thoroughly entertained and informed the last few weeks. My wife has been complaining that I would rather log on to Raptorsrepublic.com before I kiss her at the door. I guess I got to get my priorities straight.

    Still, really love the site. There's lots of passionate Raps fans out there.

    Oh for gods sake ... No wonder everyone thinks Toronto fans have a Little-Person-Complex.

    Even our media types propagrate it!


    The NBA head office has NOTHING to do with the moves that Bryan Colangelo makes.
    Anyone who thinks differently is being ridiculous. In my opinion.

    All you have to do is compare us with the Clippers, Warriors, TWolves, Bobcats etc and you'll notice there is no conspiracy.
    Unless of course the NBAs goal all along was to have TERRIBLE teams in HUGE markets like LA and the Bay Area for over a decade ...

    The NBA would LOVE for Toronto revert back to our glory days of Vinsanity. It would serve them ZERO cause to sabotage the Raptors in ANYWAY.

    your priorities sound pretty straight to me.

    tell your wife it's a lot better than what you were doing on the internet ten years ago.
