Bargnani: Raps are the worst team in the NBA 

Post#1 » by jonas_franchise » Fri Dec 14, 2012 4:43 pm

Wow, I was surprised to see this on Rotoworld:

Andrea Bargnani (elbow) will reportedly miss at least three weeks.
Bargnani made the comments when speaking with La Gazzetta Dello Sport. Bargnani also called the Raptors the worst team in the NBA, so that should sit well with a fan base that already has grown tired of him. With Bargnani out indefinitely, Ed Davis should be owned in all leagues.

This situation just screams Hedo Turkoglu to me. When this fool is traded I'm buying tickets to the game against him to boo the crap out of him

Well, he speaks the truth.

If he was asked whether he thought the Raptors were the worst team in the league and he said no, this whole board would be down his throat.

He's just stating as it is..
We are near the bottom right now, only case you make is for a team like Lolcats or the Generals being worse, but even the lolcats have 7 wins

For the most part I dont mind guys being honest and speaking their mind. Dont know how the teams gonna take it but as a fan I dont care at all. Probably something he shouldnt say but at the same time I always leave room for comments being taken out of context. This is a translation with no article, have no idea what else he said so...who cares... Raps suck, probably are the worst in the NBA, atleast hes got something right.

So basically he's saying I don't care if we lose and I'm used to it.

Umm, people better not hate on him for this. He's a realist, where our GM is delusional.

No player ever says that about their own team. It's just not good to say.
Derozan says at least,..we're better than our record shows. That's at least better.

Anyways, we will go on a modest win streak without Bargs. I can see it now. We just need to get a couple of guys healthy and get Lowry on track.

I wonder what Bargs will say, when we start winning without him.
Prediction
Spurs in 7. Parker MVP. Lebron 6-17fg, 18pt, 8reb, 5 asst in game 7 LOSS.
The Heat will choke!

raps are the worst due in large part to him. i expect some more competitive ball with bargs out. we might all be singing a different tune after playing 10 of 14 at home.

Yeah he's right. But I also suspect something being lost in translation. We have probably the worst luck with injuries. The worst schedule thus far. I don't think Bargnani is going to blatantly disrespect the team like that.
