Reggie was the best player on the team at the start of the season. He's the only Raptor who could consistantly leave his mark on a game and he was the hardest player on our team for the opposition to match up with. His effort was contagious.
In terms of value alone, I would of paid more money to see Reggie play than any other player on the Raps, including Bargnani
and Derozan. The rebounding, the defense, the non-stop communication telling Bargnani
what to do on pick and rolls.
I would suggest that Reggie's injury actually signalled the end of the season for most Raptor fans.
