    no tanking is worth it for this team
    we suck every year why does it matter?

    we haven't been in the playoffs since 2007

    imagine if we tanked all 5 years ? we could have had some great young high picks during that time

    i'd rather let this team tank another 5 years get a real franchise player and another potential star than watching this ****** team every year

    nobody outside of raptor fans can even name anyone on our roster

    ^^^ pretty much it. Although Lakers fans know Bargs, check their forum. And I would honestly prefer 5 years of being terrible with 1 through 6 lotto picks than always doing the Maple Leafs rebuild.

    Bad news, we suck. Good news, if the draft was today we would keep our pick.

    too bad there is a lottery and an easier schedule between now and then.

    ^ so not down for that.

    this team is more dysfunctional than talentless.

    but hopefully we can use his expiring, if not at least we unloaded Novak's deal...

    this. This is not the year to tank. We've invested too much into it.

    if you are going to totally blow it up and hit rock bottom i think it would be a shame to do so without shipping Bargnani and Calderon out first and seeing what happens. a huge shame. moreso Bargnani than Calderon but that's just me.

    I agree but i think it's always good too look at the positives. BC might not get resigned this year and we could end up trading Bargs for something decent and still have our pick. That wouldn't be too bad of a scenario.

    The Raptors are tanking when smart teams are piling up wins. They will be piling up wins when smart teams will be tanking.

    Of course there is no stud set to enter the draft and were bound for the first pick again.
    Bargnani all over again I can feel it
