I'm a fan of the game, I do agree with everybody about looking for the future but I cant cheer for my favorite team to lose, I want them to win.
My thinking is if we do good but not make the playoffs, we can use the expiring contracts and TPE and get a good player to make this team better.
Maybe just maybe, someone like chris paul or marc gasol thinks they can make this team better and come here...you never know.
In the end my opinion is why build through draft all most all the good players we draft, just use us to become better players and then leave. What's the point in wasting time? Wouldn't you rather have an experienced player come to Toronto, granted historically we have seen that no "all-star" wants to come here, but I think that's changing...players are starting to like Toronto.
Just my 2 cents.
