Unhappy Am I The Only Raptors Supporter Who Feels This Way?

Don't get me wrong,I love this team and have followed them since day one. Also,I apologize if this doesn't really need a thread but I need to know if I'm the only one or not.

Does the Toronto Raptors sometimes or for the most part,feel like a professional developmental or farm team for other NBA programs?

It just seems like throughout the majority of the clubs history its been one of two things or both.

1.) Players come here to pad their stats(regardless of how negatively it impacts the team) so they can earn a fat paycheck for some other franchise (Tracy Murray,Mike James,Tracy McGrady to an extent,etc..)

2.) Players come here on an over paid contract after having moderate success elsewhere only to put it in cruise control and contribute little to nothing towards the team future achievements (Hedo Turkoglu,Jason Kapono,Landry Fields,etc..)

In a nutshell the Raptors are either making players into stars or solid pros for other franchises to enjoy or taking on the dead weight from other teams at a high price usually,it seems. If this is true,how do they break this cycle or curse?
