10:18 AM ET 03.03 | For a moment, and maybe that's all it was, there was reason to believe in Bryan Colangelo, in Dwane Casey, in the direction the Raptors seemed to be headed. But with two home defeats -- to the kind of NBA teams you're mandated to beat at home -- the facade disappeared. And now the question has to be asked in Colangelo's final on his contract: Is he the choice to run the Raptors now and into the future? Does Maple Leaf Sports and Entertainment, having fired Brian Burke, having fired the front office of Toronto FC, commit more years to Colangelo? And if it's about the general manager now, it also has to be about the head coach. These were horrible defeats to Washington and Cleveland without Kyrie Irving for Casey. The kind that can cost a coach his job going forward.

Oh....Toronto still has an NBA team?

Yep. Still in the upper half in attendance and revenue.

Yeah right. Americans just don't get how passionate Canadians are about their sports teams. Let's get rid of the strongest fan bases in the league. Where Canadians around the US come out to games when they're on the road wearing red.

Seriously uneducated comments guys. Really.

The 'Mighty, Mighty' Raptors were playing above their heads. They have some nice pieces but are still not a playoff team. They should get rid of Bargnani and get back some pieces that complement their personnel.

Yep.. It's time to start seeing what you got. Meaning less Anderson and more Ross. Maybe squeeze some minutes in for Acy. See if he has what it takes to be a nice bench player.

Umm your team is 8th in attendance this year and the Raps are only 5 spots behind at 13...and the difference is about 800 people per. MLSE is worth about 2.25 billion dollars.

Add to the that the fact that Canada is doing pretty good economically compared to the US right now. Canada loves it's sports teams and is very supportive of them...even when they have rough spots. The Raps will be fine.

Colangelo's idea of European style is not woking. It is time to change the GM in the T-Dot. Casey is getting them to play better as a team. They have improved since last year. Trading Andrea is this first key to improving the team, they need someone who can rebound and play near the basket, not at the 3 point land. It would be awesome to see Kevin Love for Andrea, Draft pick, and maybe even Ross.

Wow, do you even follow the sport? Even Gay, Ross, and a pick wouldn't get Love.
