Bargnani may be the longest serving Raptor.

Weems may be the loudest.

DeRozan may have the most potential.

Jack may become captain.

Amir is becoming very media savvy.


Allow me to help out MLSE marketing. I know some of their employees must read this stuff. How could they not? (tell Bryan to hang in there, we want a high pick to draft a stud point guard next year)


Although it may be a good idea to be a "team" rather than having "THE guy" and some teammates, I don't know if that's the best thing for marketing. So who do you want as the guy on the front of the program, on the giant billboard, as the headliner for the Raptors?

Who do you want as the face of the franchise?

Well, not Weems since we would be the laughing stock of the league if we made a D-Leaguer the face of the franchise.

Derozan is still a kid and may never reach his full potential if the spotlight placed squarly on him.

Amir is a hustle player, but not a franchise guy.

Jack is a leader, yes, but a role player.

So I guess that leaves Bargnani!

Dayum right. In a wife-beater nonetheless.

Score 25 ppg, Sonny, and you will not only be the face of the franchise, but a Raptors saviour.

David Anderson is One of the best-known non American/European players. He was big star in Europe, while for example Casspi or Jennings was hm... not very good even for bench...
We all know that Raptors is kinda more like Euro team than NBA, so maybe can work?
But actually it's bad, old, slow version of Bargnani. Good luck.

i don't understand whywe have to have one "face" to the team who freaking cares.

Why the emphasis on individuality?

Basketball is a team sport is it not?

Bargnani right now. Maybe DeRozan in the near future, depending on how he develops.

I don't understand why Sonny is continually referred to as a D-Leaguer. He only ever played 10 games there. Amir Johnson played almost a whole season there and he's not referred to as such.

Anyway, if DeRozan's game starts to bloom this season, you can count on it being him.
