Toronto Raptors Piss Me Off

I am not a basketball guy. I drank the Bryan Colangelo Kool aid. I thought he could and would walk on water, or at least deliver us to the promise land. In Bryan I believed. I watched more Raptors basketball this year and to be honest I am pissed. I’m pissed by the lack of professionalism this group showed night in and night out. I’m pissed, that but for a small chunk of the season where they went on a nice run- they sucked. I mean Judge Smails SUUUUUCKED.

I marveled at Colangelo’s ability to blow up (real good) his roster last summer. I drank the kool aid that the moves he made would dramatically improve this team. The end result is the same. The Raptors played 1, yes one meaningful game this year, and didn’t show up! This Sunday, with the Bulls in town they didn’t show up- regardless of what Triano said after the game.

I don’t know enough to answer whether or not it’s the coach. I do know that blowing up the roster 2 years in a row will be a challenge considering the dead weight it appears Colangelo brought in last offseason. I am bitter. I really tried to invest time in this team this year, going to more games then ever, watching more, reading more, listening to more and I am pissed.

Please don’t let this Chris Bosh talk last all f’n summer- move on- if he wants to leave, announce it TOMORROW- I don’t care if he can or can’t under league rules -wink, leak it, do whatever, move on- or announce you are staying- start the rebuild tomorrow.

Raps fans- sell me some hope, I need it. What do I hope for and look for this summer?
