Default Bleacher Report Raptors Preview

Adam Miller from the Bleacher Report does have a point I guess in that we don't have a player that can take over a game, but does anyone think that can change this season and that Bosh or Jose have it in them to be that player we so desperately desire?

Also, apparently we don't have the talent to beat a team like Philly? Talk about people pumping up the Sixers this season.

Toronto is very interesting, because it has a very strong backcourt and are good at every position, but don't have any strong players who can really take over a game.

Anthony Parker had a very nice rookie season last year and should do even better, although he likely wonít get as many touches with such a strong presence in the post.

I would be shocked if the Raptors actually start Andrea Bargnani at small forward, but they have too much invested to make him sit behind Chris Bosh or Jermaine OíNeal.

But the most important piece of this front court is going to be Jermaine OíNeal.

Toronto is going to be a much different team if it has him the entire season. Itís safe to say that heís not the same player that he once was, but he is good enough to make the Raptors a significantly better team.

They still donít have the talent to beat Philly or Boston, but they should make the playoffs pretty easily, and perhaps get out of the first round.

Andrea listed as the Starting small forward and Moon as the 5th big.
Also says Anthony Parker had a good rookie year last year.

That alone proves this guy is an idiot.

Just glancing at the Article.

Stephon Marbury is listed with Knicks as the starter.
Reggie Evans is listed at Small Forward

I'm suprised they didn't have Calderon at the 5.

Wow, this guy should probably do some research before writing an article. Pathetic. Does he get paid to do this?
