RIP Raptors. At least they won a championship.

@drummer4now -- One of the dumbest move in sports history?!? Yikes. I wouldn't have called it *THAT* (there's a lot of more dumb moves) but it was definitely a risk that paid off.
Demar may come back. Hard to say. But at the end of his deal, will he be needed?
Also, I don't think you realize how bad the East actually is in the NBA. The Raptors will still be a playoff team but it'll be tough for them to get out of the 2nd round. They have some very good young players in Pascal Siakam, Fred VanVleet, and OG Anunoby... they also have one of the best G-League programs that has churned out NBA players and is responsible for the massive leaps Siakam and VanVleet, in particular, made.
I have faith in this team and the Raptors do have one of the Top 3 NBA executives in Masai Ujiri manning the ship so it won't be as catastrophic as you think... They won't be able to repeat but at least they're not set up to die like the Cavs did when Lebron dumped them both times.
