How does that make sense?

What's different if there is a season?

Do Raptors kids stop getting better?

Do vets stop aging?

No. vets get even closer to retirement because of miles. and kids get even better if there's NBA.
because, you know, there are nba games and you are allowed to use team facilities and trainers.

So, how does this help? Yes, Raptors avoid the embarassment of (maybe) losing 50 games this year.
So I guess if you hate your team so much, it makes sense.
But for 12-13 and after, it's better they play.
