From what I see we just lack the discipline and the poise to execute our offense consistently.
Well what we have is a team that doesn't fast break. Jose was never a very good fast break guard and the only players I see atempting a fast break is Parker, Moon and at times when needed the bigs. Take a loot at our fast break stats they are horrible (something like 22pts in the season last I checked). When you break down the wing players you see the following:

AP: having a horrible start to the season shooting wise

Moon: with no fast break his game suffers. Moon was always an overrated rebounder and shooter as well.

Kapono: a fantastic 3pt shooter with some offensive game

Graham: well all the skills no BBIQ = useless.

With the exception of AP (who is starting horribly this season) The Raptors basically have a bunch of wings with some skills but no defensive presence IMHO.
