Realism is now associated with negativity and correlated with personal enjoyment.
We can go through all the posts and see who is using the personal attacks and it will be surprisingly those who claim "happy".
I mean, certain posters in here questioned others mental health and to medicate themselves, but hey, they are the "happy" and "positive" ones.
Those who throw stones
That's what you call it? Realism?
Well many people said this team would take a pretty big step back and were attacked, and in the end that is exactly what happened.
So instead of seeing it as rainbows and butterflies, it was just seeing this team for what it is. Not sure why anger is thought to be associated with calling a spade a spade.
People are claiming it was COVID and injuries as the big reason why, but I anticipate more of the same next year with Kyle either gone or just aging more. The true catalyst of our 50 win seasons for 7 years.
Our top two guys are below average league efficiency, we took a pretty large step back on D with Gasol, who himself also fell off.
This team is mediocrity personified. It was already proven last year, but with the COVID and injury excuses, it may take a second season before people see what this team is and switch sides.
But yes - calling this team mediocre means I am so angry
It's one thing to think we'll take a step back but it's another to act like it was for sure happening. We all know that wasn't the initial intent of the Raptors. So for you to sit here and act like it was always going to happen is an issue because the Raptors organization is definitely better at evaluating their own team than you lol.
The other issue is that a lot of posts come out as "X, Y, Z is happening for sure." In reality, we all don't truly know and stating opinions AS facts shows alot of peoples agendas, bias and gimmicks on this forum.
But whatever, you don't get it so lets just stop the conversation regarding it here.
