To the OP, yes, I'd be happy if we became the Atlanta Raptors. Currently, the Raptors are basically the LA Clippers North. And if the Clippers can turn things around, we'll just become the biggest joke in the league. Not as bad, but pretty bad.

This is one reason I'm sold on Casey and BC right now. I like the idea of changing the culture. We need to turn this team into a playoff treadmill team before we see any kind of success. At that point, we may be able to actually attract talent here in free agency. I hate it when people say it's because we're Canadian, or considered a small market or it's cold. The fact is the Raptors organization is considered a joke in the league. That's why free agent's don't sign here unless they're looking for a big payday.
