The worst - and i mean WORST season ever was the 97/98 season where EVERYBODY and their mother and their dog jumped ship and didn't want anything to do with the raptors. The GM just upping and leaving; The franchise player runnning after him like a sniffling baby shit head; the key guy in the trade for said player refusing to come to town. Fuck. That was the worst. Oh and we won 16 games all year long. good times.
Second worst was the Babcock year that he traded Vince.
Now those two seasons brought ANGER and FRUSTRATION and EMBARASSMENT to me.
This year sucks, but it pales in comparison. PALES.
Although Raps this year will, most likely, win more then 16 games I still think that this is their worst year. Because of their roster, BC factor, TSN2 and overall fan expectations.
In 1997/98 Raps were still considered expansion team and nobody expected them to do anything... they had bunch of nobodies playing but fans were still happy just to be able to watch NBA games live & in person.
Babcock year was bad but fans were happy to see biggest asshole on the face of the planet go... not to mention that Raps still managed to win 27 games... something that will be extremely hard to do this year.
