Arrow Smith: Raps recent woes will not have a lingering effect

Anyway, I continue to be amazed at the fallout from all of this stuff in recent days and feel compelled to bring up one quite salient point:

NBA players, agents, managers, coaches and everyone have quite short memories and I can say with a lot of confidence that what’s transpired here will not have any lingering impact whatsoever.

What attracts players is the chance to win, money, money and the chance to win and if this team ever gets to that level, nothing abut Hedo Turkoglu or Chris Bosh or Bryan Colangelo or a foreign country is going to matter a lick.

There is no question these are not good times for the Raptors but it’s not like they’re going to fold up and move or win five games next season and become the worst franchise in the history of professional sports.

They are going to move forward, a sense of calm and normalcy will eventually shroud the team and you’ll sit back some day and say, “hey, remember the summer of ’10? Wasn’t that a wild time.”

That is until Hedo, who stole money for a year, decides again to level a broadside from the comfort of his homeland. Maybe the next time, he’ll take some responsibility for his actions.

Yeah. Right.
