Schuhmann's articles are usually pretty good, but this is way off. Casey should be given at least a C, if that, and our bench an F. He even said it himself: 'The Raps will have plenty of shooting off their bench, but not much else'. And even then, outside of Novak(who will kill our defence when hes on the floor), what consistent shooting do we have?

Based in their grades it should have been B-.
Also, B for our bench which according to their chart is B Above Average, like really?

How does 4 B's and one C give you an overall mark of C. If Jonas, Gay, and Lowry have no big injuries, the team will make the playoffs.

I think we can sustain Amir getting hurt, with Gay, TH, Novak, Acy there that can play PF.

Not the same. Amir is the heart of the team defensively. A platoon of a SF, 15-20 mpg PF, a 3pt specialist who provides no d, and a 2nd rounder who barely played last season doesn't exactly scream sustain. I really hope to rarely if ever see RG play PF.

mehh, I love Amir but I think the love for him is way overblown. which often happens with a shit team.

after the 2011-12 season many here wanted him dealt and hated his contract.

There are many players in the league that are currently on bad teams that would be loved on good teams..... he's not that much of a standout talent, even if he is a very solid player.

Him, JV and KL were the most productive players on the team last season. The amount of crap Amir has dealt with defensively (Jose, Bargs, DD) and now that there's only 1weaklink in the starting lineup (which helps him stay on the floor) let's send him to the bench. Yeah this is a shit team. Shit teams don't have the luxury of having 30 mpg starters come off the bench.

And many people loved Bargs for his ppg and x game streak of very good play.

I assume the overall C grade is because the author thinks the Raptors will do what they always do - desperately try to squeeze into the playoffs and fall short.

For now, the Raptors will be in that 8-11 range in the Eastern Conference.

Then he shouldn't have given four B's and one C.
