08:03 AM ET 12.14 | The Raptors have won just once since Nov. 20, and they're on the verge of becoming the NBA's first 20-loss team. The vibe at the Air Canada Centre on Thursday morning after the conclusion of the Toronto Raptors practice was an odd one. With the team sitting at 4-19, there is a feeling that something is about to happen. Tension was in the air and words were carefully considered before being spoken. According to multiple sources, a meeting of the Maple Leaf Sports and Entertainment board took place on Thursday to discuss the state of the team. It remains unknown what was discussed, who called it or whether the meeting was pre-scheduled. One team source described it as "a quick update."

Can they fire everyone at Maple Leaf Sports and Entertainment? This is the worse run sports organization ever! Three of the 4 teams they own haven't made the playoffs since the birth of Christ.

How can people hate the Raptors. Afterall, Toronto is one of the largest burial sites for dinosaur bones in the entire world. You can't even dig in the back garden without turning up a fossil... wait, there are no dinosaur bones in Toronto? They named the team because of the popularity of Jurassic Park? Never mind... they suck Barney.

As I have proposed earlier, Trade Bargniani, Jose, and a future 1st rounder for Josh Smith.

Sad, but most of the fans feel this way.

Yup.

Just like there is so much Jazz in Utah, Lakes in Los Angeles, Bulls in Chicago, Wizzards in Washington, Portland is quite the Trailblazing city and Kings in Sacremento.

Which piece o'**** city are YOU from?
