    I think if Toronto plays hard every night, we will end up in the 8th-10th worst team in the league range. We're 7th worst right now, and I think we're better than every team we're ahead of at the moment. Plus I think we can pass Orlando and Phoenix. That would make us the 9th worst team, and I'd be ok with giving up the 9th pick in this draft to OKC (As opposed to giving up a pick in next year's draft.)

    Yeah, but hoping that we suck again next year so we get a good pick is even more depressing than sucking this year. Also, while ideally it would be great if Lowry and Bargs come back and we become twice as good of a team. But if that doesn't work out, it's not the worst scenario. I still think we can get something pretty good for both of those players.

    The fact that he's still in a Raps uni. Problem is that BC and I probably have different views on equal value for him. Question is, what makes you so sure BC has tried to trade him? Everything I've read about it has conflicting views on whether he's actually been made available or not.

    we are 2 spots away from being in the 8th seed

    imagine we pulled a big trade at the deadline that just propels us to 5th or 6th?!

    I wish, but I don't really think we would get anything worthwhile for Bargnani and even Calderon ATM.

    Forgive me for replying to this late.

    I understand what you and Jamie are saying, but is it possible that Andrea's contract combined with his current injury makes him untradeable?

    The team is winning right now (against mediocre opposition granted but we're in no position to mock) and with every victory the idea of Andrea somehow finding his way back into the system seems more and more remote.

    Point is for him to be traded he would first a) have to recover from injury before the trade deadline, and b) he would have to get some modicum of real playing time which he's unlikely to get.

    Even for a role player I don't think he's a legitimate trade chip right now.

    I can't believe we all as a fanbase were actually thinking of tanking.......it was all just a couple weeks ago.....we were one of the worst teams in the league, now all of a sudden we are just 2.5 games back of a playoff spot......WTF?!?!?!

    how did we do it? This team amazes me. When you finally give up hope (I did, I made a thread called "All-time Low?" right before the Dallas game.....I went to that game myself, and I was afraid of what I'd be seeing in person)

    And then they played at a whole new level, and have never looked back since. If they make the playoffs, I'll consider this one of the better Raptors seasons in our short history. Maybe top 5.

    Tanking is fo' bi***es yo, I'm out. (I was looking for a "peace out" emoticon but this is the best i could find)

    I'm glad the Raptors have turned things around, but its still a long season, it can easily go back the other way.

    Hopefully the Raptors keep winning and this thread will die off.


    SWAGUEZ!!!

    really? he wasn't even close to "Bueller"!

    If you are going to make a joke, at least do it right.

    Sorry Bob

    It's still nice to read what people were writing 2 weeks ago
