    Default Don't The (C)Raptors Always Go On A Win Streak This Time Of Year?

    I'm not even kidding around. I've noticed this for a few years. Then everyone gets some hope and excitement and they get on their computers and E-Mail away. Asking in to the newspapers,blogs,tv networks,etc. "If they continue to play good, does this... ... ?"

    Then they go back to sucking by February and everyone blames a player. Then that player gets traded or let go or it's the coach.

    It's such bullshit! Honestly, it's going to happen again this year. I like Colangelo,but, it's time for him and the team to move on.

    It's also time to get rid of the ocassional C that is thrown in front of the R. When talking about this team.

    That is all.

    LBF it is hard to take you or the thread seriously when you admittedly never watch the games for the last few seasons.

    Actually, looking at Calderon's game logs since he's the longest tenured raptors, only in 2009-10 was the closest it came to this year's december record when they went 6-2, this year was 7-1. all the other years they were 2-6.

    and they had a couple of winning streaks during jan and feb in past years.

    im not sure where you're coming from with this "revelation"

    Yeah, there's clearly no evidence to support what you're saying. It seems to me you're just saying it so that if things don't go well you can be there to brag about how you saw it coming...Well if they suck, they suck. And if you don't like it, cheer for another team.

    If anything, we always have a little run at the end of the season, usually after its been decided as useless

    But a 7-1 streak? I dont remember that in a few years.
