[Comment From Sunny]
The talent is definitely there this year to make a push in the East. As an optimistic fan, I realistically think the Raps can challenge for the Atlantic. I think it's going to come down to the coaching. How would you evaluate the coaching staff? Is Triano ready to lead a team? Is Iavaroni deserving of all the hype?
Coach Thorpe: Sunny-I'm a Triano fan. Period. I really like him. And Johnson has always been more "project" than contributor.
[Comment From Nick]
What player as a rookie does DeRozen remind you most of and which player do you think is his ceiling?
Coach Thorpe: Nick, DeRozen makes me think of a younger and bigger Courtney Lee. He realy impressed me in Vegas with his feel and willingness to make easy plays
[Comment From Age]
What is the x factor for the success of the Raptors this season?
Coach Thorpe: The Raps X-factor, to my mind, is whether Bargs boards. And defends.
[Comment From Mark]
What kind of holes do you see Coach? It appears that BC has filled the most glaring issues (backup PG and depth)
Coach Thorpe: Mark, how the Raps handle themselves in the paint is huge. If they can not stop people inside, or rebound well enough, the season will be bumpy.

Happy Thanksgiving to everyone here in Canada and fellow Canadians living abroad. Who s the second option behind Bosh on offense? I would like to see Bargs get a few more touches!!
Coach Thorpe: Mmmm, Thanksgiving. I think we'll see a lot of Hedo pick and pops with Bargs.
[Comment From jesse]
would you be shocked to see this team in the 4 seed at the end of the regular season?
Coach Thorpe: Jesse, I would not be shocked. That 4th spot could go to a # of teams. It's a stretch, but possible. Jay can coach.
[Comment From David]
is 50 wins possible? Colangelo stated that will be there goal this year
Coach Thorpe: David, don't you like your GM sounding confident? I do. 50 is a lot, but it's a fair # to shoot for.
[Comment From Bryan Colangelo]
You don`t answer my calls Thorpe
Coach Thorpe: That's because you keep calling collect, BC.
