CNNSI's Mid Season Grades: Raptors - "F"



Quote:
Toronto Raptors: It's not easy to earn a grade this harsh. You would need to underachieve dramatically, abruptly fire your recent Coach of the Year (Sam Mitchell), have a showy offseason move (trading for Jermaine O'Neal) blow up in your face, turn your lone superstar into a cranky finger-pointer who might want out, cope badly with a key injury (Jose Calderon), run off a string of losses and drown in trade rumors a month before the NBA deadline. Ladies and gentlemen, your ... Toronto ... Raptors! Grade: F

So only us and the Clips have a F. How does that work. We have a better record than a lot of teams but seriously we deserve it to.

If anyone seriously has an issue with this grade being too harsh, they need to check themselves. Nothing to dispute here.

I guess it's appropiate, most of it should be pointed in BC's direction tho.

the fingers are all pointed at the man who claimed this was the best Raptors team ever assembled. the guys playing show some improvement, but there is just not enough there to compete and with Jose out for who knows how much longer, this team will struggle to hit 25 wins... making them, the WORST Raptors team ever assembled... DEMAND A RECOUNT LOL

SAVE OUR RAPTORS

Yes, Raptors are sucking,

But the F was SUCH an overstatement.

A scalding (and deserved!) review of the Raptors season so far.

What scares me is that, even a month ago, BC was arguing that the talent is there. Is he that bad as a judge of talent, or is the organization really in such disarray?

BC is AMAZING at judging talent. Don't you remember his days in Phoenix? Barbosa, Diaw, Marion...

Those were all under the radar players, then BOOM, Colangelo's vision appeared.

Are you being serious?

Or, you know, you could just go the Hogwarts way and give the team a T.

are you really asking those questions here? go read the past 20 pages of posts and you will feel the love most/some have for both MLSE and BC.
