Raptors or Clippers, who's lazier?

According to an NBA scout the Clippers are the laziest team in the NBA that he's ever seen and it appears that at least right now (this season) Toronto is #2. What do you think?

lol. I was thinking about the raptors' overall gameplay recently and i think "laziness" isn't the right word.

The Raptors aren't necessarily lazy. They're "disorganized" more than anything. Both on defense AND on offense. They're dis-freaking-organized.

Both teams are lazy... not much to choose from... even if Raps are 2nd worst that should not be great consolation for them... they are awful.

Why are Raps always in the running for worst team honors?

I agree. But at the same time, this team is fuckin' laaaaaazy!Especially on defence. And as far as disorganized, Jay Triano is the wrong coach for this team. He can't use the BS excuse of lack of practice after 3 months.

There's nothing lazy about the Raptors. Not even on defense. Bargnani worked his ass off trying to guard Deron. Bosh took a beatiful charge. Even Joey took a charge. But when the opposing pg is able to toy with your starting pg like he's playing nerfball with his little brother, then nobody is going to look so good.

Let me tell you - if they had been lazy at all on D today the game would have been over halfway through the third quarter.

How does the likes of Washington and the Kings not make the list? Washinton was projected to be in the playoff hunt, as for the Kings...

Some of the things the Raps do are definitely lazy.
It takes a lot of effort to fight through and over screens and to crash the offensive boards for example. The majority of rebounds they do get are ones that happen to bounce into their laps.
Also for a so-called running team they seem to be in piss-poor shape, running out of gas late in games. I don't know if that's a result of laziness or not, but their conditioning could also account for some of the injury issues this season.

well i guess its lazy when you don't try for half the game as in the defense part of the game
but maybe they are trying and they just suck at defending?!
i guess it can also be called lazy when you only shoot jump shots and don't make the slightest effort to drive to the basket, or maybe the Raptors just don't have players that can do that, wait...either way thats not a good thing
i think it basically just means Raptors SUCK!

washington was already waiting for the next season when agent zero went down.

as for the kings, their roster shuffling indicated they are tanking big time to get top pick

They just beat Denver. That really doesnt sound like tanking.

Just to clarify, the scout in question said nothing about the Raptors being lazy. This is a snippet from an ESPN interview. Basically they ask a scout who the most disappointing team is and he says that a lot of people would say Toronto; instead, he says the Clippers are the most disappointing because they're so lazy. Doesn't say anything about the Raptors being lazy.

Quote:
"I think a lot of people would say Toronto. Not me," the scout said of this season's most disappointing team. "The Clippers are the laziest team I've ever seen. I know they've had a lot of injuries, but they just don't play hard. Their good players don't play hard.

"They have enough talent to be relevant. But it looks to me like they're trying to become the Oakland Raiders, going out and getting all the guys who are on their last chance.

"So don't be surprised if they go after Iverson in the summer. If there's one place where [signing Iverson as a free agent] can sell tickets, it's there."
The way the blog post is constructed is a bit misleading.
