RaptorsHQ Lunchbox Links for February 2, 2012

Charles Barkley is embarrassed by the state of the NBA. And after watching the Raptors struggle to put up 64 points last night against the Boston Celtics, can you blame him?

Of course, the logical next step when you are putting an inferior product on the floor would be to raise the average ticket price for the first time in three years.

The first time I played ESPN's 2012 NBA Lottery Mock Draft, Chad Ford had the Raptors selecting Indiana's Cody Zeller. I promptly found a quiet corner in my office and wept.

Of course, Ford redeemed himself by imagining a world where the Dinos win the lottery and select Kentucky's Anthony Davis with the first overall pick. Davis, Andrea Bargnani and Jonas Valanciunas could form one of the best young front lines in basketball, according to Ford.

Charles Oakley and Anthony Mason used some colourful language to describe the earliest incarnation of the Raptors' uniform.
