The Toronto Raptors season has not gotten off to the best start in 2013. Sitting at 3-5, their only viable point guard Kyle Lowry is already hobbling around with a number of injuries, and their two “offensive stars” Demar Derozan and Rudy Gay are playing just about as terribly as anyone that has watched them play before would expect. It’s a frustrating time to be a Raptors fan as they once again seemed destined for a low lottery pick…but it could be worse.
One thing the Raptors fans do not have to deal with this season? Andrea Bargnani! After a nightmarish final season in Toronto last year, Bargnani is struggling to find a groove in New York following his trade to the Knicks. In fact, it appears that he’s lost all bodily control:
That’s the Andrea Bargnani that Toronto fans know and learned to loathe with every fibre of their basketball being! Seriously Andrea…what exactly were you trying to accomplish on this play? I’ve watched a lot of basketball and I just don’t even know…
So yes, Raptors fans the team’s start to the season has been frustrating, and watching Rudy Gay take 37 shots in a game while shooting under 30% is enough to make your blood boil, but you know what? It could be worse…Andrea Bargnani is not a Raptor anymore and I’m perfectly fine with that.
