Default Roster Comparison: 2006-'07 Raptors vs. 2008-'09 Raptors

Here is a little comparison that I made between our best season's team ('06-'07), and this year's team:

2006-'07 Vs. 2008-'09

C- Nesterovic/Bargnani << O'neal/Bargnani/Jawai
Pf- Bosh/Garbajosa/Bargnani/Humphries ≥ Bosh/Bargnani/Humphries
Sf- Graham/Peterson/Jackson <<< Moon/Kapono/Graham
Sg- Parker/Peterson/Dixon ≥ Parker/Adams/Ukic
Pg- Ford/Calderon/Martin/Dixon ≤ Calderon/Ukic/Solomon
Overall- 2006-'07 < 2008-'09

As you can see, we have made big improvements at the positions that we were worst at, and in the areas where we declined, we really didn't lose that much. The point that I am trying to make with all of this is that we could easily get 50 wins and make the second round if things went our way (i.e. no major injuries, good frontcourt production, play Philadelphia, or other less experienced team, in the playoffs ). The competition may have stepped up, but so have we. And to all of you spoiled naysayers who seem to complain about everything little thing that we do at all wrong, just remember that we won only 27 games in '05-'06, and that we've built a truly great team over the last few years, so we really shouldn't be complaining.
