Well, 2-4 will happen by the end of the season, it's only #1 that may hang in balance for a while

Lol,I could really see this happening....kinda like Casey making sure they won the final game of the last regular season so they wouldn't get a better shot at 6th overall.

These pages have some good material, I've been laughing my ass off. I think that we'll win a few games but even worse, when Bargs gets back, he'll start reeling and we'll win a whole bunch of games and end up in 4-8th place. This is reminicent of a bad dream.

I really think this is good, Ed can really show his value to this team, and to show how talented he really is.

Bargnani told italian newspaper "la Gazetta" that he will be out at least 3 weeks:

Quote:
NBA 14.12.2012, 17:38 Redazione Sportando - E. Carchia Comments 15

Bargnani: 'I'll miss at least 3 weeks. Raptors are worst team in NBA'
Il Mago talked to Gazzetta.it

NBA
Andrea Bargnani had an interview with Gazzetta.it. Il Mago said that he will miss at least three weeks after the arm injury suffered in the game against the Blazers.

"It is hard to say now when I will be back. For sure, I am going to miss at least three weeks. In 10 days I will have my arm examined. Everything has gone wrong right from the beginning of the season. We were built to win but we don't. We are the worst team in the NBA right now. We are way below all the expectations. None of us got the confidence for playing with the others. We won only four games. It is a tragedy. From every point of view it is a desperate situation. 'We have been losing for four years. In order to improve we need to win. But we haven't so far. I have been criticized? This is not the first time I am being criticized. But it doesn't affect me. Trade rumors? 'I hear the rumors. If it is meant to happen, it will happen. I am ready for anything. I am a basketball player. If I have to play in another city I will go. Otherwise I will stay in Toronto. It is my job. Rumors about the Lakers? 'I've never been coached by D'Antoni. So, I don't have an opinion about his system. 'Lakers are a team with many problems but they have been unlucky because they play without PGs" said Bargnani. The interviewer, Davide Chinellato, told him that in th Lakers he would play with Dwight Howard, a dominant center which could be what Bargnani needs. "'I'm having my career and improving year-by-year. It's the team that needed a dominant center more than I do. If I play bad it is my problem but If Raptors lose each year then it's several people's problem".

You gotta admit he has a keen eye for the problems. Maybe he should be GM which will keep him off the floor.

Your abiility to embellish is tragically depressing. Any reason to hate on the guy... he shows he cares and he gets hated for it despite being hated for not apparently caring enough... Raptor nation is ridiculous.

3 weeks isn't bad, the OP said 2 months?

What sucks is that we finally have a relatively relaxed schedule, and were severely undermanned.

I would have preferred if Bargnani missed the first 2 months of the season lol, not like we were going to get any of those games.

Whether he's right or wrong,being honest or a dick,just because Bargnani(him of all people considering the way he's playing) feels like the Raptors are the worst team in the NBA,doesn't mean they have to give in to that thought! They got 3 weeks to prove him and any other doubters/nay sayers wrong!

3 weeks, at least. We still don't really know how long he's gonna be out. The 2 months thing was from a "medical source" that stated that this kind of injury can last 1/2 mounths.

I think he means no confidence in playing with other teams. In other words no confidence that they can beat others. Also, don't forget this is translated.

I read it as the Raptors players aren't able to instill confidence in eachother by neglecting to fully buy into the systems and the team philosophies. Nobody is feeding off of eachother as most winning teams do.

Those pointing fingers need to also point at themselves first... maybe some are feeling entitled?

And who do you think is pointing fingers? And keep in mind that if that's what he's saying then he's pointing fingers himself.

Being quite fluent in italian, I checked that out; he is speaking about Toronto players not being used to playing with eachother, the low chemistry.
