We don't get our pick this year; tanking is absolutely useless. Everyone should want us to make the playoffs and a slow start won't necessarily prevent that.

Agree. LAL has slow start too, but they will be in playoffs, so why can't Toronto? After all we have Landry Fields, the superstar

Hi guys, I know I'm new here and all, I really love Raps Forum (have been reading it for a year now), but I don't think I can handle another tanking year. Last year reading this board was a little depressing. Loved the Rasual Tank Commander JPG's and all, but overall there was just too much negativety. I hoped with Lowry and Val coming in, there would be some excitement again, and after 4 games, it's still possible to have a great season and get back to the playoffs!!

Let's go Raps! LETS HAVE SOME FUN! Greetings from Holland.

Not supporting "tanking", especially 5 games into the season.

...but why not let Ross play? Give him some experience.

We could have DD, Ross, Lowry, JV around for quite a few years. Let them play on the same line, let them gel. We may lose a few early season games, but I'd bet that this team would be a lot more exciting in the second half of the season if Ross is given a chance.

Even if we don't become a playoff team this year we've built a solid nucleus that will be ready for next season. If it looks like this is not a playoff team by the trade deadline then look to acquire draft picks or other young talent.

What scares me about this team is that even with Lowry and DD having good seasons, we're likely not a playoff team because the other players are just hot garbage. Bargnani will still be Bargnani, not trying at anything but his own baskets and the scrubs are scrubs. We have so much money tied into bad players, it's easy to see we're in a lot of trouble for the next 3 years.
