    Default Your biggest disappointment in Raps History?

    Who or what would you guys say has been the biggest disappointment in Raps history to date? This can include, players traded away or we received through trade. Players leaving for more money, less money, more TV time, whatever. Or players drafted and not lived up to the hype. Deals that fell through or coaches being let go or hired.

    In my opinion, Barg is up there with Vince leaving us high and dry. I was never sold on Bosh as a franchise player and the fact that he left to go play with his Olympic girlfriends didn't bother me. More power to him. Just thought he could have been more up front with his intentions so BC could pull the trigger on another J. O'Neil trade lol. I was actually happy he left because it meant that Barg would get more touches and show us all why BC selected him 1st. That has not happened and will never happen as long as BC continue to pamper him. If he sits on the bench when he is playing poorly like he did last night, maybe he will start to care and take pride in himself and his game a little bit.

    But Barg is not my biggest disappointment. I have to give that honor or lack of to BC not admitting that his experiments and tweaks have failed.

    Who is your biggest disappointment so far?

    Biggest Disappointment in hindsight:
    Not keeping Tracy McGrady.

    Biggest Disappointment since Ive begun watching the Raptors:
    Vince leaving for nada.

    Most Disappointing F.A:
    Hedo 'ntplaybasketball' Turkoglu.
    The Baltic Beast is unstoppable!

    Turkoglu.
    Actually forgot about Tracy McGrady. But guess he left because he didn't want to play second wheel to VC correct?

    He left for many reasons, but apparently we couldve had him if Butch Carter was kept.

    Whatever the reason, in hindsight its probably what kept us from an early run to the championships.

    1. Watching Vince Carter quit trying. (the deal just made this worse)

    2. Watching this organization build around Andrea Bargnani

    3. Chris Bosh not being traded

    He wears the number 7.

    Seriously though, couple of years ago when we were like a game back of making the playoffs and the raps lost, and the bulls won pushing us out at like the last game of the season.

    Drafting Hoffa has to be in there somewhere.

    Ya .. that one hurt alot. I remember we had to beat Golden State on a night they were trying to get the record for Don Nelson.

    That, and Vince missing the shot over Tyrone Hill that could have put us in the Eastern Conference Championships against a beat up Milwaukee ... Basically one shot away from the Finals.
    When that shot rimmed out, my heart died a little.

    And of course Vince getting traded. Rob Babcock is on my "Punch-in-the-Face List".

    That year we held out destiny in our own hands. We lost that game big time if my memory servers me right!

    The haul we got for VC is up there.

    The VC rim-out against Philly was a little before my time, but my brother is a Sixers fan so it still hurts. A lot.

    You guys should be posting a picture of Vince instead of Babcock.

    Sure Babcock was a buffoon for doing that trade to a team in his own conference but Vince's play put his value at zero. When a player openly comes out and wants a trade, then puts forth zero effort and sulks until it happens it puts you in the worst bargaining position. Had he been traded to the western conference we still would have got nothing back.

    1. The entire team who played, and didn't tea-bag Kobe out of the game sometime after 50.
    2. Bargs, that block by Duncan is an article on it's own in USA Today. He really, really needs to go.

    What's really sad is that we keep hoping that we're rebuilding toward something.

    I actually thought that this year we'd play decent ball, get some respect, and really fit into that "up and cummer" mold.

    The ONLY option, right now, is to sucker some GM into trading a decent asset for IL Floppo. Else, our biggest "star" is going to go all Boshy-Vincy on us, and we'll end up with squat in return.

    THAT would be the biggest "loser" slap in the face, after 7 years of hoping the "real" Bargnani would emerge.
