Default Raptors Questionnaire

I stole this from realgm and idgaf.

Its a short questionnaire, only yes or no are acceptable answers. The objective here is to get a sense of what most of us think about the team and its future. Ill tally all the answers in a couple days. If something is open to interpretation assume it is your interpretation.

Good = above average starter on NBA team.

Copy and paste the below, add your own answers.

1. Should the Raptors attempt to tank next season?
2. Is tanking ever a winning strategy?
3. Is DeRozan currently a good player?
4. Is it reasonable to assume that DeRozan will be a good player in the future?
5. Should the Raptors attempt to trade DeRozan?
6. Is Gay currently a good player?
7. Is it reasonable to assume that Gay will be a good player in the future?
8. Should the Raptors attempt to trade Gay?
9. Is Ross currently a bad player?
10. Is it reasonable to assume that Ross will be a good player in the future?
11. Should the Raptors attempt to trade Ross?
12. Would the Raptors making the playoffs next season be a good thing?
13. Do you expect the Raptors to make the playoffs next season?
14. Should Casey be fired?
15. Should Kleiza be amnestied?
16. Should Bargnani be amnestied?
17. Was Ross over Drummond possibly one of the worst draft blunders of all time?
18. Do you think it's reasonable to suggest that Fields might live up to his contract?
19. Was the Gay trade a bad deal for the Raptors?
20. Do you think that Bryan Colangelo is unfairly blamed for the Raptors woes?
21. Are you optimistic about the Raptors' future?

You don't think 6.4 ppg on 40% shooting is bad?

I really don't get a lot of these questions... Gay, Derozan and Ross are all good players right now and will be in the next couple of years. But they're not untouchables. The Ross vs. Drummond discussion frustrates me to no end, have some patience people... And what's up with people wanting to tank next season, are you insane??? Have you learned nothing from the last 3 years? There's no guarantee Ujiri will do a better job at overhauling this roster than BC did so you never ever tank. We have a pretty formidable starting five, BOS and PHI are bad right now so that playoff spot should be ripe for the taking.

Yes
You don't want them to tank but you think it would be a bad thing to make the playoffs? And you think Ross is a bad player who won't become good but don't want to trade him?

And ZanTheMan, DD and Gay I agree are good but Ross currently is not good by any means.

Well, "good" is apparently defined as being an "above average starter", so I guess Gay, Derozan and Ross should ALL average, say, more than 15 ppg. Add to that Fields who "if he'd ever earn his contract" should average around 12 ppg and 8 rpg so it's pretty clear that that will never happen cause these 4 guys will have to share all the minutes there are at the 2 and 3 positions.

It's not a long shot to suggest Fields and Ross would be above average starters on a team like the Bobcats, on the Raps however there's no chance since we already have two above average starters in DD and Gay.

If you ask me having those 4 guys is a real luxury (we could use some additional firepower like Korver though) and a lot of teams are off far worse than we are.

And ZanTheMan, DD and Gay I agree are good but Ross currently is not good by any means.
That question asks if it is "reasonable to assume that Ross will be good." "No" only means that you assume nothing, he may be good or he may be bad.

For a 22yr old who's minutes were sporadic, and for the most part had a very short leash.......no.

.407 FG%, 33 3PT%, 71FT%


^ IMO for a rookie year, I've seen worse. How anyone is honestly giving up on this kid with the promise he was showing in the middle of the season I just have to shake my head. Give him consistent minutes with a defined role and a better coach and imo he'd flourish.
