Default Miami Herald: "Raptors Most Disappointing Team"

Looks like we being recognized around the league as one of (if not the most) the league's biggest disappointments.

Wow, great shot at the crowd there Miami Herald. Maybe they should look at themselves, when we came in there. Yellow seats everywhere. They get booed one game and heaven to betsy you see a comment. Meanwhile, the Laker fans boo the Lakers and no one notices.

Also, I think Washington deserves this honour. A good team last season, strong playoff, good core with Butler, Jamison, Nick Young, good coach and Eddie Jordan and they're just terrible this year.

Are you suggesting Wade is one of the league's biggest disappointments this year?

I think the Raps are a disappointing team but not the most dissapointing team. That honour goes to the 76ers. They had so much hype going into the season and they have the same record as us

we're definitely the most disappointing team.

just last year we were thought to be a playoff regular, Bosh was proving he belonged in the bron-melo-wade talk, jose was showing as the best point in the east. and we had one of the best home environments in the association.

this summer we went out and traded for a multiple-time allstar centre.

now we suck, we're boring, Bosh and o'neal don't work together, jose's lost his spark, and the crowd and fans are faiweather.

AND we've been healthy. you can't say that about washington or golden state or whomever. philly can come close but many saw them last year as a surprise; toronto was expected to be good, ergo the expectations upon the team were greater. and dally's been hurt, too.

its amazing that people that will go on and on about how disappointed they are (in the team) show such disappointment in an article stating toronto disappointing. well, at least there's consistency.

Washington has the injury excuse. Haywood hurts more than Arenas. Without him they have bar none of the worst frontcourt in terms of interior d and rebounding, without those intangibles no team can succeed.

Phillys most disappointing IMO. Lots of analysts thought theyd be = or better than Orlando. LOL.

Were a close second though.

Miami's better at home and better overall
and Toronto's been terrible at home so far and terrible overall.
you can't really argue with him.

We had the pedigree to be better then Philly based on the last couple years, we are the most disappointing.

Whats the point of arguing over who is more disappointing? Being 1st or 2nd on that list is disappointing in itself

Agree!!

The Sixers were 'destined' to finish 3rd in the East. We were hopeful of landing in the top 6.
