Toronto’s struggles haven’t been easy on anyone.credit: theepochtimes.com
Simply put, the Toronto Raptors are not very good. They stand at 4-19 in a very competitive Atlantic division that features the New York Knicks, Brooklyn Nets, Boston Celtics, and Philadelphia 76ers. So, in other words, don’t look for them to climb up the standings as the season goes on.
They’ve had problem after problem all year long, including a variety of injuries. Their leading scorer from last season, Andrea Bargnani, has struggled mightily.
Due to everything going on, Bargnani went as far as to say that he is depressed about everything that is going on with the team. Via the Toronto Sun:
Bargnani: “I’m very upset that it’s something very bad again (Bargnani missed most of the 2011-12 season due to injuries), kind of depressed,” Bargnani said before lightening up a bit.
“It was a bad fall, could have been worse, could have broke some of my bones, my wrist, so I got lucky in certain ways, but it’s really bad. Bad moment, bad timing, everything.”
Don’t get me wrong, the Raptors are awful. And it must be painful for Bargnani to watch this happen. But using the word depressed to describe something as unimportant in the big scheme of things such as basketball is probably a little drastic.
In 21 games, Andrea Bargnani is averaging 16 points and 4 rebounds on a disappointing 40% from the field.

You got hurt at a bad time, both for the team and personally...
This is hilarious. Especially with all the trade rumors lingering.
