Don't get me wrong but the Raptors will always be underdogs. Expectation for the Raptors at any time only exists in Toronto.

Saying that every single team in sports I support aren't frontrunners so I guess I do relisth the situation

Totally agree bring some fun back.
Players who want to be in the uniform and are willing to leave everything on the floor.
I expect a new attitude from Bargs with Bosh gone,

Bargs will be Bargs, one night 30 the next 8 average 19 if you like that type of inconsistency.

I think deep down, all Raptor fans cheer for the underdog, that's how we became fans. Lots of fans of LA & mia-ME are the exact opposite

In 2-3 years from now our starting lineup stats might look like this.....

Jack: 10.2ppg, 3.3rpg, 5.2apg
DeMarr: 22.9ppg, 5.0rpg, 4.2apg
Weems: 12.3ppg, 3.5rpg, 2.1apg
Amir: 10.8ppg, 10.2rpg, 1.5apg
Bargs: 19.7ppg, 8.2rpg, 2.4apg

This is only a pipe dream.

Klieza seems good so expect hopefully 12-16ppg from him, Sonny is a bit of a hit and miss but I don't expect him to offer to much. Huge wieght on Demars shoulders if he has improved his outside shot he may be able to carry us through some matches but until then I only expect 11-14 ppg from him. Barbosa's coming back from an injury so NOONE knows what we are getting here.

I don't expect us to finish any higher than 3rd from the bottom when imo we potentially only have 4 scorers who can get over 10pts at the start of the season with Ed hopefully starting to hit that mark by the end of the season.
Knock 'em down before bring 'em up right?? I mean surely you can't be this pessimistic.

This sounds like the opening of a classic NZ sales pitch where next you're gonna try and sell us on the merits of bringing in Pero Cameron to help salvage the upcoming season.
