Heading into the NBA season it is not the Celtics, Pistons or Magic that worry me as a Raptors
fan, it is the 76ers. They are young, athletic and they added Elton Brand to dominate inside. They are one of the future teams of the East. They will be the main team the Raptors
will be fighting with for a playoff spot in the Atlantic.
So it did not ease my worry any today when I read the 76ers have agreed to terms with unrestricted free agent forward Donyell Marshall. Philly needs some outside shooting and Marshall fits that role for sure.
fans know the damage he can do from the corner. All Raptors
fans also know that it seems to be the former Raps that always come back and bite us in the ass.
Playing for the Raptors
against the Sixers on April 13, 2005, Marshall tied a league record by hitting 12 three-pointers. I really hope that does not happen again but the other way around. The way the Raps cover the perimeter, I am not holding my breath.
Donyell was a good player and great guy for the Raptors
as I remember him and I wish him luck but only when the Sixers are playing everyone but Toronto.
