Dear Raps Fans...

Dear Raps Fans,

How are you?

I think of myself as a fan as well. I try really hard not to miss a game, and I attend around 5-10 games a season at ACC.

I buy their gear, and even subscribe to Raptors.com's newsletter.

I like you guys, very passionate, very raw, but very passionate. We all jump on a bandwagon and we never come off, look at JYD, The Red Rocket, POPS? Once we love someone, we love em. And once we hate em, ohhh boy. T-Mac? VC? Mighty Mouse? Even A-Davis!

Anyway, I'm writing to you all, because you are starting to annoy the shit out of me. Because most of you don't even understand the basics of the NBA salary cap, but you dare to question the signing of the best player available in this year's Free Agency.

I know signing up in a Fantasy League is cool, and most of you do really well, but that doesn't make you a GM.

I'm not saying don't question the organization, we all know MLSE can be a bitch, but all I'm saying is, at one point or another, you gotta sit down, lay back and realize that you are JUST a fan and not a GM. You don't scout players, you don't know the rules, you don't know an agent, or 30, and you sure as hell don't have a multimillion dollar business in your hands. So all I'm saying is just wait a bit. Let the team play at least 5 games before dissing one of the most important things that ever happened to this team. We got a very very good player to come and play for us. I've said it before, and I'll say it again. It's a really good thing. Just for the image of our franchise.

We are the same team that allowed Shaq to fake an injury and sit out the game in Toronto and his team still beat us. Remember that?

We are the team that lost a whole bunch of talent to other teams because our own players didn't wanna play for us.

So all I'm asking you all is to just give the system a chance. BC has made mistakes, just like all the GMs in the NBA, but he has been one of the, if not the most successful Raptors GM of them all so far (at least Bosh has yet to quit on us). So just wait. If it doesn't work out, I'll personally join you on the "Fire BC Bandwagon", but for now, have some faith. Let's cross that bridge once we actually get to it, OK?


Look at the past week, we went from "maybe playoffs" to "maybe second round". Now maybe D-Wade would wanna play in Toronto!

I'm telling you this, cause I heart you. Cause I heart this city and I heart this country.
Sleep tight and be safe.

-RasaM

p.s. I hope BC can get McSexyDelfino back, I really miss him. *sigh*

LOL..Good Post..It's been tough for me to frequent this forum since it was reported that Hedo had chosen Toronto..so much pointless conjecture; not to mention overwhelming negativity..the team is in good stead as long as BC is around..he could sell a ketchup popsicle to a woman in white gloves..

All this salary cap business has always been over my head, it's been hard for me to find things to talk about on here recently. Now that there's some more concrete stuff going down, I'm looking forward to using more of my office's bandwidth to talk ball.

The actual idea was from two days ago where it took like 8377839837 posts to understand WTF is up with our salary cap and MLE and so on.
And once the trade happened, I decided to actually put my thoughts to word.

Cause too many of us act like GMs, while we really aren't.

Ahhh, Rasam.... my love for you is deep like the ocean.

Do you know that your posts are starting to sound SJ-esque? Just without the swearing, minor insults, and angry replies that follow.

My boys... they're similar.

LMAO!!

You know what, I couldn't agree with you more. SJ and I have a very similar vision when it comes to basketball. That's why we used to be really close, before SOME PEOPLE showed up! But overall, I just get annoyed and usually don't do anything about it while SJ writes perfect rants. Mine are mini-rants.

And you know I heart you tons, miss you two like hell man...I do have some new stories to share! So we gotta chill soon, like really soon!
BGFL YO!

I might take Gherty to the beach today, if you're not busy hollaaa!


Also, can we have a shower or two if Raps sign DelSexy?

Besides, I PLAYED BALL DAMMIT!!

LAMO...the surgeon told me to avoid physical activities, and I don't know if SJ is down with me being lazy in bed...I guess we shall see!

I just hope my heart can take it...it's been a while...
what if he doesn't like me anymore?

Ya it was rediculous the number of posts asking the same cap info. I suggest everyone who really wants to understand the cap to read the info on this link. Not once but a couple times. It takes a bit to understand how everything relates.

The cap is for nerds.

I let the nerds post about it, and I truest um, we got smart nerds here.

As for you Rasam, I'll call you.
