Amir Johnson lost his goddamn mind last night

Amir Johnson lost his goddamn mind last night

The Raptors are, unsurprisingly, pretty terrible.  They have the second-worst record in the league and not a whole lot of hope for the future unless they try to rebuild (again) and try to see if they can get anything worthwhile for Andrea Bargnani.
