Default Chisholm: Relax Raptors fans, it's pre-season

There were more than a few fans last night packed into the John Labatt Centre in London who were vocally unimpressed by what the Raptors offered on the court, but it can be said that many simply missed the point of the evening. While there is much that needs to be cleaned up in terms of execution for this club, that is exactly why the training camp and pre-season schedule lasts for the whole month, not just six days.

What went down last night was the first chance a group of virtual strangers got to attempt to execute a brand new offensive and defensive system, and that is exactly what it looked like was going on. Passes were thrown to non-existent receivers, plays broke down while movement ceased and rotations were botched all over the floor.
Nonetheless, the team only played one non-competitive quarter (a 36-22 second quarter) and there were some positives to be taken away from what went down otherwise, including a 48-42 second half advantage and 16 offensive rebounds.


For all you hittin the panic button just chill. We already showed 100% improvment from the first to second game.
