I don't see that playoff run anytime soon.
A playoff contender usually has one super-star and a complementary player, or several stars. Bargnani
and DeRozan are good third options for any contending teams, but are not stars yet. I doubt that our draft pick will turn into a superstar.
This roster has potential, but the Raptors
front office must acquire pieces before young assets' contracts expire. In other words, when DeRozan's contract is expiring, there must be damn good reason to re-sign in Toronto.
