As I’ve stated before, the Toronto Raptors are in a bad spot.  After a disappointing postseason performance, the Raptors need to decide what direction they want to go in.  In order to gain success in today’s NBA, teams have to bottom out in order to rise to the top, or else they get stuck in treadmill mode, much like the Bulls and Grizzlies have been stuck in as of recent....
