1) 'Potential'
2) Willingness to be here.

This is the worst Raptor team I've ever seen. If you think we'll be vastly improved next season you're kidding yourself.
I totally disagree about Amir. He is a good young player that does hustle (usually) and clearly knows his role. He doesn't demand touches, take too many ill-advised shots or sulk over minutes. He's a solid third big, but we're relying on him as a top two..... With Andrea out it's even more of a discrepancy as he's used as a primary role and he's not capable.

Willingness to be hear is a good thing given our struggles to attract players with our poor winning history and lack of star power since the Vince days.
