Our next 5 games

Nov. 8 Toronto @ Indiana
Nov. 9 Toronto vs. Utah
Nov. 11 Toronto @ Houston
Nov. 13 Toronto @ Memphis
Nov. 15 Toronto vs. Chicago

Honestly I won't be shocked if we're 2-8 after this stretch. We might be better than utah but its the 2nd game of a back to back.

Lol I'm on the 'go with the flow' after the preseason. But man. That tank option is starting to look like a pretty good option. I was 70 - 30 (2nd being tank) going in the season, after preseason 60-40, nd now it's 45-55. Nd after this:

Big deal, a win tonight puts us in the middle. Far too early and it's only 6 games in. Let's see where we are after 20 games.

if we do get a bad record by march we have to fire casey before he wins meaningless games
he's stupid enough to be an early season tank commander but what truly makes him a moron is his end season wins

Now that even Ataf is for the tank I think Jeffb is the only one not willing to tank (yet) lol.

I'm willing but at the same time I think a coaching change and trading Gay would help a lot and maybe that 8th spot would still be a reasonable goal then...

I think jeff has joined our corner. He said the next time we'd be .500 is next season

Maybe he just thinks we suck though

I think it's a big deal. Game 1 is just as important as game 82.

I just don't look at our 5th worst record right now as anything. It's pointless because how many teams are right there with us? It's far too early and its way too small of a sample size to start looking at that. You'll give yourself a headache.

yeah but it doesn't work like that does it. teams have good and bad form. losing a game can make you try harder the next game and win when you might not have the if you'd won the previous game. psychology plays a huge part.

I remember when Toraps was ridiculed for being unbelievably knee-jerk in his reactions. At least it was towards the positive end of the spectrum. Now the bulk of posters are worse than him in the opposite direction. We're already calling for a tank next season. And looking forward to it gleefully. That is fucked up. How does the game hold any interest for you people?

I'll be for the tank when it is absolutely clear that there is no use in this team winning. We are not there yet, believe it or not. You can't watch a horse coming slow out of the gate and tear up your ticket and walk away. That's goofy. But this situation is nuttier. It's laying bets on the loser and sitting back satisfied at your horse stumbling out of the gates, somehow inexplicably knowing that you've won, oblivious to the nature of competition, and entirely missing the point of being involved in that competition as a spectator, which would mean seeing something of a season before giving up on what is here, and what might still be done to improve.

You can't possibly think that this team can compete. This is a Frankenstein like team just thrown together by BC in a feeble attempt to save his job.

how can we expect to compete in the playoffs with guys like Gay and Derozan taking terrible shots, a mediocre bench, etc.

um, a majority of people argued for the tank before the season began, what we've seen so far is just validation for those what were on the fence.

If you think this is overreaction, just wait a couple more weeks ...

if by my shitty horse losing I end up getting a chance to get a highly productive horse then yeah I'll cheer for it to lose.


Your example has nothing to do with how the NBA works and theres no way in hell we'll build off FA's because A. we suck and B. extra taxes

losing is the only way to rebuild unless you want to perpetually be in 9-12 for the next decade.
