If we started from Day 1 with this roster we would be a playoff team. It might be a bit late now, but it will be nice to see this team gel in the offseason. Add a few pieces and this team could be really good.
Of course they are the best in the East....but we can't afford to lose.

peoples opinions of this team changes faster then delonte wests moods... is raptor nation bi-polar? seasons are full of ups & downs for every team...some people just need to chill with the knee jerk reactions to games...
it was a tough loss, raps came out flat in the second half & good teams see that & go for the kill.. we need better movement on offence.. obviously we need better production from Lowry/JL3, & Anderson needs to take a back seat for a bit, & we need a legit post threat.. we seen today how a defence can sufficate the passing/driving lanes when theres no offence comming from the post.
i think they fought back nicely in the first half considering the slow start..but like DC said this is a process & i dont think thats changed since rudy got here...if anything the process has kinda been reset a bit since we need to adapt the game plans & sets a bit with rudy here
bottom line is this team is better now then it was tuesday.. we just need to ajust our rotations & set plays a bit & ratchet up the energy level closer to the way it was against the Clippers

Sorry, I should expressed my self more politely. It's just my opinion. Very simple thing - strong, serious playoffs teams should have fundamental big man and high IQ passing players. JV will become fundamental big man one day, but Raptors has no single hight IQ, passing players and they never invest for that, thats obvious. I just think it's a wrong way to go.
Man AA and to a lesser degree Lowry played like pure deer poop
Idk what you guys think but i think AB off the bench would have completely changed the story. He would have went off against Miami's shitty second unit.
I don't understand why AA is out there. Ross is playing better - which is not saying much - but he is. AA has shown the last few games why he was overseas and in the D-League until last year. I think he is a decent 5th wing on a team but he is doing waaaaaaaaaaay too much. The wing rotation should be Gay-DD-Ross-Fields in that order. I hope next year, if DD is still with the team, it becomes Gay-Ross-DD-Fields.
