Thanks.

For looking so completely silly right now.


I said it before. I'll say it again. 48-50 wins. #4-5 seed.

What took you so long? Lol.... I thought that someone else would have bumped this long before now.

Apparently the one thing that I failed to realize was the defensive ineptitude of 3 of our 5 starters.... I was wrong about Jose... I have to admit that now.

But looking back at everything else that I said (about Bosh, Triano and Belli) I don't feel too bad about it.

50 wins may be a stretch though now. Heh-heh.

half the people on this forum predicted 5 seed+, idk why you people would fall into the same trap as last year with JO. when you combine a bunch of new players into a new system it takes a while to learn, usually one season. look at the cavs, their probably worst this year then last year unless they learn to play as a team.

Why do you think it will improve anything? Are there clear signs that we play better with Jose/Bargs off the court?

Jose/Jack has to end. Hell, I rather start Banks than see these two on the floor together.

Yes...there are clear stats to show Calderon is one of the worst defensive point guards in the league. Since our problems are mostly around defense, logic dictates that removing a key contributor for crappy defense(particularly one that doesn't generate much offense) would be addition by subtraction

I'm glad that so many of you seem to rejoice in the Raps losing.

Raptor boards are so great for this.

If someone could have told me that Hedo would be all but useless and that Bargs would actually REGRESS defensively I might have tempered my expectations. lol.

Hedo is not all but useless. Apparently in day games he certainly is.

But they have to make better use of him, and change up the lineup to give themselves a chance defensively. The schedule is going to start to even out now. They are up against it now, but it's too early to altogether give up on them.

I think I am going to go find and bump the threads in which forum members said Cleveland would suck this year, because they lost their first two games.

No one wants the Raps to lose, but this a perfect example of how Raptors fans overreact after one good game or one bad game.

In all fairness it's been more than one game. 4 losses in a row with only a single win separating more losses. We have another tough week with Washington playing improved of late...
