I'm simply going to conclude that as a fan of basketball and growing up playing the game, that I really don't know what's going on with the Raps. Perhaps I just don't understand the pro game, especially with what is going on with them.

The confidence of the team has dropped again. I think the raptors have a fundamental confidence issue that is contagious...
When is this team moving to Seattle again? Seattle Sonics or better yet, The Seattle Huskies. Working on the logo as we speak.
Well they booed Bargnani again at the game today. I was a little disappointed, I even felt a little bad for AB ..
I think the team is distraught. Just disheartened from what has happened in the past week, and like many have said, overall confidence is shaken..
Wizards or Cleavland followed by Boston. The league is going through a change of the guard.
... are raptors tanking?
did they forget they already traded their pick?
That then also doesn't include teams like Philly who did not have Bynum at all this season and is a FA so they could have a lot of cap space; or Detroit who will have a lot of cap space as well and can sign a max player.
If we have the same team right now going into next season, I would say we are probably a #9 or #10 team in the East. The Raptors also don't have much flexibility and I don't think Bargnani will fetch any kind of difference maker.
I do think the defense will improve naturally, and Lowry will probably play very well since it's his contract year.. however there are still a lot of flaws on the team and since there is not much financial room to make changes - I am feeling skeptical that we are a playoff team next season.
Cleveland, Detroit, and Washington are not going anywhere anytime soon. They are all 2/3 years away from making the playoffs. If we start off poor again next season you can bet your ass that DC will get fired.
