well let say if the raps in the past seasons just tanked a little or decided just not to go 8-2 in there last 10 games which always seem to win games because everyone else is tanking and we start dominating teams we normally get beat by, or teams resting players for playoffs and we get a win against a team that should destroy us

curry instead of derozan
George instead of ed davis,
well we would have to land the no 1 pick in Jonas draft class because I believe bc would've drafted him 2nd overall if he had the chance which would have been the right pick if we take into account who was considered there with kanter and derrick Williams,
Harrison barnes instead of well ross, I like ross though so I'm not mad

this is clearly pointing out the obvious with many forum members on this board saying this before or thinking it

so tanking does win if you do it right, if by the trade deadline your not competitive then you should be in full out tank mode, that's just the way the nba works

Normally I would say it's impossible because players like that help you win games and kills the tank. But looking back, Curry was injured a lot and George wasn't nearly as good as he is now. So it seems possible

the original argument is stupid. the players who are not in the top 3 but end up being the best 3 players reflect the flaws of the teams scouting, not the flaws of the draft. The draft is as perfect as it gets IF done correctly.

the team with the first pick, can draft the best player. and so on. Just because not all teams do that and some end up drafting busts, doesn't mean anything, because if you do it all over again I can guaran-dam-tee it that many draft positions would change.

and another i really can't understand people's obsession here with winning these meaningless games with this current group of players. in all my years of watching the NBA I've never seen a conference be this terrible, and we're still barely an 8th seed. this should tell you a few things:

- we're the best of a group of terrible teams, most of which are actively trying to lose.
- next season we'll be terrible, because these garbage teams now will get great players and improve and we'll still be mediocre as ever.

In 2003, our franchised was changed for the better for 7 years after drafting Cristina. This time around, we have the opportunity to get a player who would actually LOVE toronto, and people would prefer to win meaningless games just so that we could get swept by the Heat or Pacers in April?

anyway, we're too good now and we're playing too hard - there's no way we don't make the playoffs if we don't trade lowry. I will miss him too, he's my favourite raptor now. We probably have to get rid of vasquez/patterson/salmons as well, they give us too much depth and we can't afford that.

and this team, I think it's my favourite since the '06 season. I hate the fact that we have to break it, but it's for the best.
