Default Time to cut our losses-Sell high on Gay

He's the most overrated player in the game with the worst salary in the league.

He's a selfish, losing basketball player, whose teams have always done better without him.

Maybe some team may be stupid enough to fall in love with him and overvalue his talents.

This is an utter joke... as soon as he gets traded, people will be asking for the missing small forward/game changer.

Get over it and enjoy the best player on the raptors. You have to accept the good regardless of the bad or else you will never be happy with who we have. Just look at melo for example....

If you are true fan, you will stop calling people garbage and overated.... doing that is garbage.

Amir and Kyle are the best players on the team.

Selling high implies waiting till the player is playing above his abilities not trading when he's down.

While it would be dumb to trade RG, don't you guys find it extremely frustrating how streaky of a shooter he is but he keeps shooting anyway?

Yes lets trade him. He missed training camp, missed a majority of the season but who cares right? Seriously though, its too soon to trade him or even talk about it. Next year will be a different story. Think about it, trade him then wtf do we got? DeRozan as the franchise player?

Naaahhhh, we'll trade him a few months after getting him and we'll land a franchise player.

Hard to argue how Anderson isn't better for this team

Who says "cut our losses" after 20 games? Seriously, what a knee jerk ridiculous fanbase sometimes i swear.


Especially when we all know he's going nowhere when we just aquired him for shit sakes. This thread is asinine.
Our fanbase continues to have double standards as you've pointed, and I doub that'll ever change.

This thread however, is surreal and really doesn't make any sense. To count one's losses, you'd have to have more of an investment in something than two months.

Gay is our best player, and the best player we've had since Vince and this is coming from someone who loved Chris Bosh during his time here.

LOL. He's the worst player on the starting lineup.

Undisputably. Just look at his efficiency for the contract.

Go look at how this team is playing with this guy gone.

He's a negative player.

I dont think there is anyway we could or should trade Gay for anything valuable during off-season.

That said he is very frustrating to watch. Chucks a lot. Turns the ball over like he was trying to hand gifts to opposing team. Makes bad mistakes in defense in every game (seems disinterested at times).

I think he has the physical talent as well as mental and skills to be very good, but his BBall IQ is just very low. Thats sad. Hopefully we will get a coach that can hammer some sensi into him.

some fans on here get angry as if the Raptors still have a chance at making the playoffs.. the season is over, I only want to see Terrence and Val develop. I give the raps until next season to get their acts together.. so I am willing to have one more year with Casey, BC..etc, because I know if the raps are bummy next year then there is going to be a whole lot of firerings

give them an entire off season and a full training camp together and then see whats up

Really? How many game winning shots had Amir, Lowry, Jonas or Derozan come up with? One between all four of them?

Any gm would take Gay over any player on our roster. Minus maybe Jonas given his potential and small contract.

Oh, some efficiency vs pay ranking says he's overpaid. Big deal, we overpay for everyone anyways. This would likely be out best case scenario. When Gay was traded to the raps, Kendrick Perkins said right on his twitter that he ranks gay next to LeBron, wade, Kd, ... Sorry, but I'll take tr opinion of an established Nba player over some efficiency ranking. And if you've been watching the same team, you know since resting his back for 1 game, he's been very efficient in all areas of the game.

But oh well. You can have your opinion that's cool. That's the purpose of this forum
