It's finally beginning to happen.

It may be just a trickle at the moment, but the U.S. basketball press is finally starting to acknowledge the idea that Chris Bosh won't be headed south next month, and a renegade few are even taking in the notion of him sticking in Canada for the next six years.

While some of the bigger outfits (*cough*ESPN*cough*) have thrown too much reputational weight behind their insistence that Bosh is desperate to leave one of North America's most cosmopolitan cities to simply give up the goat now, more and more basketball blogs are turning the other way. It couldn't have come at a better time, either, because the Raptors are playing some of the best basketball they've ever played like, seriously ever.

One of the rarest sights for Raptors' observers over the last fifteen years has been a cohesive team. For brief moments this club has managed to string together streaks of inspired play, but rarely do those streaks extend much more than a few weeks. This iteration of the Raptors, though, has been playing impressively together for almost two months straight, and they seem to only be getting stronger as a result. On the whole, Raptors fans seem unsure of how to take the unexpected fortunes that have befallen them.

First of all, it's so uncommon for this team to play this well that many fans urge the team to simply squeeze out wins now because at some point the good times will end. They've come to resemble a nation escaping a depression, so filled with pessimism and cynicism that they simply cannot bring themselves to believe that good things can actually last. Despite wins against San Antonio, Orlando, Dallas and LA (the good one), fans still cannot muster up the confidence in their club that they can actually beat good clubs with anything less than a huge lump of luck.

We're now 18-9 since the team meeting after the first Atlanta thrashing. Things are definitely looking up and the defence has and is continuing to improve vastly. Heard we've been a top 8 defence since than. Kinda hard to believe after the crap we witnessed the first 20 games. All looks good as far as enticing Chris to stay.
