The annual return of FACT or FICTION

A few of us played this on ”the old board" and I brought it here last year. With no news recently and being in the dog days of summer, I reintroduce Raptors FACT or FICTION.

Here's how it work:

The first poster makes a statement regarding the Raptors. For instance : FACT or FICTION - Vince Carter was the best Raptor ever (so far).
The second person would answer fact or fiction (in this case a FACT) and now the important part … make sure to make another statement so that the thread continues!

(Just like last year, there will be an NBA FACT or FICTION, and an other sports FACT or FICTION)

So here goes:

FACT or FICTION -the 2013-2014 Toronto Raptors are a playoff team!

FACT - in a contract year, Lowry will have a big season, especially with no "defined" # 2 option. He will log big minutes and have a really good season.


FACT or FICTION - Landry Fields will be part of the rotation this year.

what defines a three point shot? I'd argue an adequate % is 35% at 2 - 3 attempts per game. In that case FICTION

Rudy Gay makes the allstar team this year

Before this thread is over someone will have a completely pointless argument and derail the thread.

Thats purely hypothetical since we wont be making the playoffs, but if that scenario did happen, it'd be fact.

TORaptor4ever finally admits next season that Landry Fields sucks.

Is this thing coming off the tracks already? Most of this thread is going to be hypothetical. I say the playoff odds are about 40%. I'm not in love with any of the lower end of the conference.

I only said hypothetical because I think we have 0% chance of making the playoffs, versus the other F or F where I think there is at least a chance it happens.

Back to the thread:

Tyler Hansbrough averages 10 PPG this season.

Fiction.

PS: I think Hansbrough will get good minutes (25+) so I think he'll average more than 10 points.

Fact or fiction: Bargnani scores 20 (or more) points in the first Raptors-Knicks meeting.

Fiction (first meeting is in pre-season and he hasn't even worked out this summer due to injury)

Fact or Fiction: Demar Derozan will shoot 33 + 3PT% for the season
