ATLANTA - In the NFL, it’s known as Black Monday, a day when coaches get canned, whether it was warranted or not, the day immediately following the conclusion of the regular season when changes are initiated.

In the NBA, there’s no description to describe the day after the end, but the repercussions are similar, the usual backdrop of agendas and protecting one’s turf at play.

Like every non-playoff team, the off-season in Toronto begins the moment Wednesday night’s visit by the playoff-bound Celtics is officially in the record books.

Whether the coming weeks and months is a time that ushers in major changes in Raptorland, only time will tell.

The team has been close in many games, only to come up short when lack of execution and lack of mental toughness were exposed.
