This was arguably the worst week of the season for the Raptors and many problems have come up in the locker room.

Julian Wright complained to Jay Triano when he was given playing time in the garbage minutes and refused to enter the game.

After the game Wright, or “Ju-Ju” as Reggie Evans would say, apologized and realized that his actions were wrong.

The chemistry in the locker room still appears strong as the season comes to the end, and this will be a key to the teams success next season.

There has also been a report that the Raptors are now willing to trade Andrea Bargnani, and are looking to build the team around DeMar DeRozan and Ed Davis.

Bargnani apparently has very large market value and if the Raptors can get a nice piece for him and pick of a true center, it could be time to part ways with Bargnani in the offseason.

Anyway, onto the report:

Record: 0-4

Performance on a scale of 1-10: 4


Here is a recap of the four games:


Raptors @ Denver, L 90-123


Just a bad game in general for the Raps in this one.

Andrea Bargnani scored 20, but was also a -26. I don’t even know if that’s considered a positive.


Defensively, the team was awful. Offensively, nobody seemed to shoot the ball well. Rebounding, the Raps got hammered. The Raptors just did not seem hungry enough to win this one.
