I want more than a playoff appearance, and yet I don't need to see them make the playoffs this season. I need to see some indication that they will be able to put together a core that can be a threat to win 50+ for many years going forward. Just making the playoffs means very little to me at this point.

not concerned about wins or losses at this point...what i want to see is this team develop and nurture a definable identity this season
then continue to bring in players that fit whatever that identity/system is

Barkley is not an NBA expert. probably can't even name half the players on the team. He's there to provide some insight on players mindset, be outspoken and laugh at.

so his opinion isn't supposed to be taken too seriously

Wow. That's some lazy bullshit. Brutal. But Chuck is just an American clown, so I'm not supposed to take him seriously.

Was Barkley talking about being 5th best in division? Its ok, although I would rank Philly below us. Somewhy their roster reminds me of Sacramento, bar the coach. Could be quite dysfunctional

Barkley'd be lucky to pronounce half a name right. Still it's hard to argue Toronto can get off the bottom of the division in the next couple of seasons.
Funny, especially cause there were coherent analyses of all other teams.

There isn't even analysis why. I find that these days American broadcasters look at the teams that made the big moves and mostly concentrate on the sexy teams and dismiss the other teams. Case in point Philadelphia, they lose three key players but they got Bynum so some say they're a top 4 team. Lol

It's not farfetched, some just don't like the brutal truth. We haven't proven anything, Philly has been winning and while making some big moves has upgraded at the most difficult position to upgrade at. Even if you said Philly and Toronto are on the same level, his point is still valid. Yeah, we may 'compete' for a playoff spot, just like Philly... but there will be like 5 teams going for two spots.... Why would they worry about us?

Meh. Chuck spends more time in Toronto than you guys might think every year. He's a great sports guy, tells it like it is. Toronto Sucks. Has for a very long time. We have a giant fanbase that will lose their minds if this team even makes it to round one of the playoffs. Your ownership makes 5th most money in the league, your fans all show up, yes, you still sucks turribally..... do you really expect a guy like Barkley to sit there and drone out canned bullshit "analysis" like everyone else? Do you guys think the their reveiws you have seen so far are actually insightful??? Give it some thought, honest thought, then tell me, what would you rather.....regurgitated BS catch phrases about cielings and health and defence and gel and PG and this and that? It's all snake oil guys, always is. Barkley is so real it isn't funny....skipped the BS and said what he thought... "why we even talking about the 5th best team in the worst division???? Thats what he's thinking.

Also, the title misleads, that wasnt meant to be an analytical type segment guys, it was a 60 second piece..... lets get a little perspective here.

5 teams are going for 3 spots and thats Boston, New York and Brooklyn. Chicago, Miami, Indiana take another 3. Hard to imagine that any of these miss playoffs. Well, maybe Chicago could.
Last two are between Philadelphia, Atlanta, Milwaukee and us.

But being in strong division means we will have trouble getting enough wins. Games against division rivals will be doubly important.

ps. is this thread about our goals or the teams goals. the teams goals should be very simple; have some self respect and character and give a shit every night and play hard both mentally and physically.

Thats it.

Act like Professionals you stiffs. The rest will work itself out if you're any good.
