    You guys beat the man down when he's not playing good. When he's actually down with injuries and can't play, you guys go in for the kill.

    I don't mind Bargnani back. With JV out he can take his place in the starting line up. Even if he doesn't make them better, I don't think he'll make them worse.

    After all these years it's clear that he's not 1 st overall material but he's far from a bust.

    The kill? It's basketball, its a game no one gets killed. More like gets paid millions, and at worst will be traded to another team that will pay him millions and perhaps he can start another romance with another market/gm.


    We just want to try something different. We have been fixing every other position, to please Andrea, our fans have supported him for years, but in the end, it may be better for both of us to part ways. Who knows, maybe a less familiar place will make Andrea a more complete pro.


    Fans in Toronto are good fans. They just want their team to play better, this 7/8 stuff is making a lot of people realize that we need a banger at PF. The guards can shoot our threes. 2 big men against 1 does not bode well for defense or success. We need a traditional PF down low with this squad.

    EDIT: No need to shed tears for mercenary's, Andrea probably has lots of basketball in his future, here or in Europe, and will be getting paid big bucks. This is the pros, raptors should not be making emotional choices with players, we want to compete with the other clubs, not be the mother Teressa's of the NBA.

    Agreed, it's either trade him for valuable assets, amnesty him and use the space to get a quality FA, or keep him and let Casey do his thing unhindered.

    Either way, it's what's most conducive to winning that counts.

    As for keeping him, I'm rethinking a bit. Andrea has shown a deft hand in the past when it comes to making good passes. Make him aware that his value isn't in scoring, but spacing the floor, assists and post defence. (based on size)

    Casey needs to let him know that he is NOT the clutch offensive option. That belongs to TRoss, Demar, KL or AA. Bargs shouldn't have a play run for him for at least 2 months when he comes back. (if he's not traded before then)

    The raps suck when it's just throw it to Bargs or KL and let them create the bucket.

    Also, this thing about Bargs needing touches to get hot is BS. Raptors offence should never have been centred on Andrea.

    I want to get "killed" for $22 million over the next two years. Kill me over and over again.

    Whether it's 22mil or 100 mil, money NEVER compensates for respect. NEVER. That being said, there's nothing wrong with criticism. Respectful criticism though is quite different from disrespectful criticism. In other words "KILL".

    If he wanted respect he would of got a medical license and joined doctors without borders. This is the NBA, respect is earned.

    Funny you mentioned 'doctors without borders' 'cause DWB is an organisation which believes that every human being deserves health care. Same goes with respect. Every human being deserves it.

    Respect as a human being yes, entitlement to a starting position on a NBA team, no.

    (but hey let me know, because I am ready to go anytime the above changes)

    In conclusion(hopefully), entitlement to a starting position on an NBA team is earned. Respect is deserved.

    Bargnani is shit. Anyone who thinks the raptors should keep him needs to open their eyes. He is a complete cancer to this team and he needs to go.
