    Default Is this team a lottery team again?

    I mean, before tonight's game i was pretty optimistic that they could turn this thing around. But losing to the Sacramento Kings? not just that, the way they lost was embarassing. Kings could do anything they want offensively.

    So i ask the question, is this Raps team really this bad? like top 3 pick bad? i'm starting to think that they are. Pretty sad because it's only December but it might be time to talk about next year's draft already.

    No, they are not top 3 bad.

    Yes, they are bad.

    To me now they better be a Top 3 bad. What's the point to land on 4-9th spot once again, giving pick away. We need some serious talent. Be the worse, imo. Nobody cares about reputation and dignity anymore, it is unavailable to restore it, it can only be fixed by long term success or franchise name change. Just play the way you are playing guys. Keep commander Macaroni a.k.a the best player in the team and get us No1 pick. Checking results every morning when you know that it is a loss anyways without even seeing it is meaningless.

    This appears to be an absolutely horrendous draft..... still trying to find the silver lining!

    I'm not sure if there is a silver lining. This is simply bad. With the team hustling and playing better as a team without Andrea, I think that the rest of the guys are trying to send a message that the big banana needs to go (IMO). I just can't see Lowry pairing with Andrea to work long-term (Kobe stare from Lowry). As for the draft, now I think they're top 3. I really do (not speaking from the heart, but from the brain).

    Just about the only thing positive this year are their turnover ratio. Other than that, they don't move the ball well, don't score efficiently and worse, cannot defend pylons.

    I agree .. probably not top 3 bad. But I dont know how anyone can say we arent looking like top 5-7 bad. It really comes down to AB being historically bad. If he keeps playing like last night, we may well be top 3 bad.

    I hate to keep saying it .. but doing what we are doing has landed us with the 2nd worst record in the league! Can we please play Ed, T Ross and J Val for 25-30+ mins per game and see what happens? Either we will lose more (not really possible .. but) or hopefuly get a bit of a young nucleus. Either way, extended minutes for AB (unless hes on fire), JC, MP (sorry dude, great game last night .. but you arent part of the future), AA etc do this team no good whatsoever!
