Thanks.

For looking so completely silly right now.


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

Bookmark it and come back to it in April.
I've still got the Raps pegged for only 47 wins. (since preseason)

Jay Triano has been every bit the "Rookie" coach and made a ton of mistakes!
But he seems to have the respect of some senior NBA types so you've got to cut him some slack - even if I'd rather not.

1 game under .500 in his first FULL season as a head coach.... not bad for a rook. You'd have to say that he deserves his share of praise for recent turnaround as well. Like it or not.

jay triano is sam mitchell's Bad Carbon Copy (lawl) and he is obviously lost in the big league.

I'm sorry, but have you watched at least 50% of the games of the raptors? half the time Bosh is nowhere to be seen, then comes on for 1 or 2 dunks a night and he's all of a sudden the most amazing player on the team.. sure, because everyone else sucks dick. Bosh would be kevin garnett's 3rd bench replacement role player.

i think bellinelli is the only person with soul and will on this team, he's the only one that always shows a fighting spirit and probably the most consisten shooter out of all (not like that is a huge feat)

sure, we'll get in playoffs, but do you even expect this team to go past round 1? do you even expect this team to go to a 6 game series?

jack is overrated but he's paid accordingly, i think a larger concern is the 2 season underperforming 'pro' we're paying twice the money for who plays worse than jack.




i don't think anybody said all those things in a row, but random people say random things, and more often than not, they are true.

belinelli can't be touched! i agree with waterboy...bel is the only to show grit! and i believe that he doesn't deserve the bench...he really can be the motivator of the team..

I'll tell you what's stupid.... "fans" revelling in their home team's losses instaed of celebrating their wins.

We'll see how stupid this thread looks in April.

Back at .500 now.... team is 12-4(?) since the team meeting and this is obviously a team that has FINALLY gelled and figured out how play together... the way that the coaching staff wants them to.

I'm falling in love with this team again. FINALLY.

And still no sign of waterboy..... curious.
