Arrow Grange: Raptors at beginning of crisis

I think it started awhile back.

Quote:
The crisis has officially started. Getting roughed up at home Tuesday night by a still finding their way Wizards team is one thing. And there was not a bettor on the planet who would have picked the Raptors on the road over the Hawks, not when the Raptors are playing for the second time in two nights and Atlanta have been home waiting for three days.

Those are facts and human physiology is hard to ignore.

But the problem the Raptors face is that the Hawks embarrassment was merely an extreme variation on a theme. The Raptors defence is beyond awful and the overall energy the willingness of anyone not named Amir Johnson and Chris Bosh – obviously terrible last night, but that has been a rare exception - to do anything about it is shameful.

There’s no point picking examples. Four times the Raptors have played on the road on the second night of a back-to-back and four times they’ve been drilled. Average margin of defeat: 26 points.

Something is wrong.

I hope wright was calling himself out too, cause he didn't exactly looked like a defensive stopper when he played ... I don't like players who have something to gain personally making comments like this. I would have much preferred Bosh to do it, because wright is probably pissed off that he doesn't play in a contract year, and I can't trust him in that position.

That being said, the question being asked is if that's the case, why doesn't triano do something about it. He knows that if this continues, his job is on the line, so he has nothing to lose ...

Oh, well, looks like I'm just delusional or in denial.

wow, Grange hit the nail on its head. coaching is not terrible. people are ready o throw anyone under the bus... fans are already calling for the coach's head... and trading players. we v been there last year ,,, where did that get us... we need some stability for this franchise. besides I think the real victim in all of this is Bryan Colangelo... he has done everything a GM can possibly do in the summer to turn it around... but he is been unlucky soo far with the results and the effort his players are putting on the floor.
