Which team was better: 1996 Inaugural team or 2012 team
 
Which team is/was better? Our first ever team or this team?

This team has more talent but the Inaugural team was a better team

i wouldn't say this team has more talent. Mighty mouse anyone?

Acie 01-21-2012 12:49 PM

I agree.

This team might have more potential down the road, but Mighty Mouse, Doug Christie, Alvin Robertson, Oliver Miller et al had a bit of an edge to them that this team lacks.

Hmmm wouldn't you say Bargs cancels him out.

Don Vito 01-21-2012 12:58 PM

First team was better IMO, I'd take Mighty Mouse over any of our "future" pieces any day.

Inaugural team, no question.

They both suck equally. Which makes sense, both teams were rebuilds/building teams and were/are very young. Although i think this current team with Bargnani/Bayless in the lineup is probably more like 7-9 rather then 4-12.

Which team is more entertaining, the 11/12 Toronto Raptors or the 11/12 London Lightning?

The 11/12 raptors is unwatchable, I haven't seen a full game since maybe the first or second game, they are terrible. Last year it was kind of exciting, now it is like watching paint dry.

Clearly I'm not a fan of the piece of shit roster we have, can't wait for next season.

I bet that Casey WISHES that he had defenders like Robertson and Christie on this current roster.

That ten points makes a huge difference :cookie:

Innaugural team beat one of the GOAT teams, The Chicago Bulls.

Our best win so far is probably the Timberwolves.

Innaugural team also seemed to be more competitive. The first few games this year we looked like a better team, but if things keep going the way they're going, innagural team by far.

this really speaks volumes about our franchise the fact that this is even a fair comparison....

Mehh, you can compare that 1996 team to any rebuilding team present or past. They're no different.

i mean like 16 years and we're back at square one, if not worse, with really nothing to show for it

Every team eventually goes back to square one to some degree. But yeah, nothing to show for it seriously sucks

I was 4 years old, lived in a desert and thought everyone here lived in igloos, so I have no idea lol

Exactly. This team is worst to watch than the KO team and that team was boring but at least they won a few games.
