Terrence Ross has taken to Instagram to call out “fans” who have criticized the Raptors and called for change after their meek playoff exit.
To all the raptor “fans” who think we need to trade everyone or get rid of this and that, I’d just like to remind yall, technically speaking this team is the best team Toronto has ever had. Yeah we didn’t have the greatest play off run, but we had a hell of a season. An just 5 years ago, this franchise wasn’t even making it to he play offs. Our performance this year in the post season was inexcusable but non the less we are a good team. Some of yall acting like unless we won the championship, the season was a waste. It wasn’t. We are still taking steps forward to try and bring a ring home for YALL. We still are going to put the work in to get there it just takes time. So bare with us because we will only get better. #WETHENORTH
I do get where he’s coming from, some reactions to the playoff loss have been drastic, but I would have suggested that he let things simmer down and let the Wizards playoff humiliation fade into memory before making any further posts.
These comments would also carry a little more weight if they came from DeMar DeRozan or Kyle Lowry, who carried this team this year, but coming from Ross, one of the biggest under-performers this year, they sound silly.
