Default Chill out folks

Let's face it.

There are those of us that are smart, and those of that are not very smart.

I would like to make two statements:

1. I think there are those of us who think because we are 6-8, we're falling apart, Andrea sucks, Jose sucks, JJ sucks, CB4 Sucks (Some previous stupid form titled Bosh hurting the team or something), Jay Triano is a crappy coach etc, we have no chance of making the playoffs or going past the first round etc.

2. And there are those of us I think, who have a vision of how frickin good this team can be in a matter of time.

I would put myself in the second one.

The game in Pheonix, the game vs Cleveland. The fact is if a few more things go our way against Pheonix and we're sitting at 7-7. I have absolutely no issues with our record considering injuries, new players + schedule.

We need to get through this week and be around 8-10 and go into December and take advantage of a pretty favourable schedule.


Go Raps Go!!!

That would put you in the blindness of category number 1.

Dominating the whole game against the best team in the West, where people usually get destroyed?

Yeah, we lost, but we owned that game.

So what? Putting up a fight with the Suns should give raptor fans hope?
Apparently we're close to being a very good team you say, but how so?
We got Chris Bosh (our best player) whose contract is expiring, Jose Calderon whose played satisfactory so far, Andrea whose been JUST average (which is not enough), and Hedo who is a great player but something we already have (facilitator + scorer). All those guys besides Chris -our best player- are locked up with long-term deals. To top it all off we're 3 games under 500.
So I don't exactly understand how we are 'so close' to being good.

On another note, people do go crazy and make absolutely ridiculous statements (fire Triano, etc,etc,etc)... some of those threads just need to be deleted

You guys can say whatever you want, but

a) It would make sense to trash talk after you prove me wonrg
b) You think you're tough and intimidating, but you're not
c) I am 18, do you have a problem with that?

Until we see what this team is all about, the questions about why they haven't shown what they are all about clearly are legitimate.

It's entirely possible to suggest that Andrea might not be the best fit, that Jose might be better coming off the bench, that Triano might not be capable of making the tough decisions, and on and on, while at the same time seeing that they are quite close to being really really good.

i dont know why but i think there is a pesimist athmosphere here today..this team will easily make the play-offs..

but if you come with atlanta, i can say we cant reach their level because our future is in mortgage..we have specific problems and huge long contracts cripple us..BC should make some smart moves if he want to get this team to next level..or toronto will be just a first round play-off team..

I did not mean to be offensive, so sorry about that.
