The Toronto Raptors’ 2014-15 season kicked off at full speed, culminating in a franchise-record 36 wins at the all-star break, but completely sputtered out in April with a first-round sweep at the hands of the Washington Wizards.

Terrence Ross wants Raptors fans to focus more on how the season started than how it ended.

In a post on Instagram Monday night, the 24-year-old took a shot at “fans” of the team who want the roster blown up while preaching patience to those still reeling from their “inexcusable” post-season performance.

To all the raptor "fans" who think we need to trade everyone or get rid of this and that, I'd just like to remind yall, technically speaking this team is the best team Toronto has ever had. Yeah we didn't have the greatest play off run, but we had a hell of a season. An just 5 years ago, this franchise wasn't even making it to he play offs. Our performance this year in the post season was inexcusable but non the less we are a good team. Some of yall acting like unless we won the championship, the season was a waste. It wasn't. We are still taking steps forward to try and bring a ring home for YALL. We still are going to put the work in to get there it just takes time. So bare with us because we will only get better. #WETHENORTH

The Raptors have plenty of work to do if the team hopes to get better, but general manager Masai Ujiri has remained tight-lipped about what direction Toronto will take this off-season.
