Colangelo makes the owners money, so that's why they keep him.

He has a grand plan..

Lose our pick this year.
Be even worse next year.
Draft the hometown kid Wiggins in 2014.

Genius. Classic BC.

that's not classic BC at all, and rightly so. thanks god he isn't a "tanker" like you lot. this would be one hell of a depressing team. Reason why I always watched the jays and raps? always were competitive. if they aren't, the fanbase will diminish and soon it'll end up being the vegas raptors

If we got Wiggins, all woukd be forgiven in my eye.

If a genie came up to me and asked, " the Raptors will be terrible for the next two seasons, but I can guarentee you get Andrew Wiggins 1st overall in 2014, would you do it"? Id say yes.

and what if after getting that guarantee, and waiting those two years, that =same genie came up to you and said, "sorry, we lost the lottery and we're now picking 4th"....

if we lost one more game last season we would have picked 5th or 4th, don't remember which. that's if the lottery isn't rigged of course. this is beside the point. at least we didn't make ourselves fools and allow a scrub to have a triple double on us...


I hate, absolutely hate, all this tanking talk. I was so happy it was all over last season. we don't even have a pick this year (stastically likely that we don't) ffs!

And here I was, thinking I was the only one on this board with this opinion.
I completely agree with you Pzabby!

this team doesn`t suck. outside of the last 2 games, every other game has been close, most within 4 points, a couple within 1 point...

Really? REALLY?

Yah, we're one of those good 3-13 teams. /smh Seriously, we're 3-13. Our win % is .188. We're not a good team. Face the facts.

Seriously I'm sick of people being overly optimistic. This team does suck. Being close to not being 3-12 is still being 3-12. Why are we 3-12? Because we lost 12 games, we deserved to lose every single one we lost. Both teams play 48 minutes and we were worse 12 of 15 times. Those are the facts.

What he meant was, if you look at some of our losses:

Utah Jefferson 3 pointer that rattled around to tie it

Pacers season opener, game winner by George

Bobcats and officiating, Bargnani should have had 2 FT's with 2 seconds left

Pistons game, should have won

Spurs double OT

That's 5 losses that easilly could have been wins.

3-13 could easilly be 8-8

It really doesn't matter how you lose, if you are 3-13 you're just not good. We as fans have to face the facts and not pretend Colangelo has built a good team this year. I'm not hating or anything, but the results speak for themselves.

You can't deny that injuries have a lot to do with that. More Lowry, Fields and Anderson would've def made us a better team. We've had a pretty tight schedule, tiring back to back games (OT's), we've played like 3 more games than most teams. We gave great teams like the Spurs a tough time.

Honestly the only player that has really disappointed is Bargnani.
Val looks good if not great (he could've been Hoffa bad but that doesnt seem the case at all). Ross has shown glimpses. So has Ed if given time. Demar has improved. We have some nice youth that will be given more time as the season progresses I'm sure.

I'd like to say this team will look a lot better when the players come back from injury, but sadly that won't happen soon. In the meantime use your energy more efficiently and focus more on the positives.

BC ain't reading this board. Neither is Casey. So give it a rest. Things will be fine!

The more I read your posts, the more that I find agreement on our perspectives. We still disagree on much, but I'd like to agree we're not a good team. We're probably capable of more than our current record, but we did lose those games. I'm not sure we've got transcendent talent though JV could grow into that.

Also, more Fields would have made things worse!
