Being a Toronto-native, I have to have SOME hometeam love . So what do you guys think of the Raptors and the situation their in? The new GM Rob Babcock is a complete and udder moron IMO but I feel for his situation. Players don't want to come to Toronto because it's: 1. In Canada (which is a lovely place if people only gave it a chance) 2. Taxes are higher here than in the States. 3. Not America (where people have lots of pride and would rather play in the States) Toronto is a beautiful city with a lot of things to do; however, the common misconception is that its a boring place. It stops lots of high profile players from even wanting to come and stops draftee players from wanting to be drafted (i.e rumour was Gerald Green refused to come to Toronto). So that leaves Babcock with little options on who he can draft cause he doesn't want to get players that won't try; but then he'll go and draft players like Rafael Araujo and Charlie Villaneuva 50 spots ahead of what they should be drafted . Its a lose-lose situation. Basketball is huge here and I'd hate to see it die. What would you guys do/have done in Toronto's past to improve it from being a lottery team every year?
