Which new face will have the biggest impact in Toronto next season?

Marco Belinelli
Jarrett Jack
Amir Johnson
Hedo Turkoglu
Reggie Evans

This poll is conducted on NBA.com and i decided to see how different would actual Raptors fan think compare to NBA fans...

Also howcome they dont have wright...since most Raptors fan think he should be a starter...judging from the other poll we conducted on this form...

I am going to add wright to this poll and see if we can get different results

Turkoglu - end of clock scorer the Raptors lacked
Jack - will decrease Jose's mins/solid backup PG
Wright - Will provide D v. 2/3's
Evans - provides toughness/rebounding upfront
Belinelli - scoring off the bench (imo)

Turk, Belinelli, Jack, Wright Evans will have have big impacts imo. But Hedo Turkoglu will have the biggest one by far.

Evans, because he adds a dimension we haven't seen since Oakley left.

The rest are skilled players and we never really had a problem with skilled players.

Kapono is not the least bit skilled. To me skilled means good athlete, ball handling skills and Basketball IQ. Kapono Has none of those things, he's as dumb as a brick. The thing is the operative words in your post is tried to add skilled players. But all we've added especially at the wing positions are semi atheletic guys will little upside that lacked brains and skills or a lack of wanting to actually use whatever skills they had. Our wings have been horrid for years and we were in dire need of real skilled players that aren't one dimensional.

This i agree with, Guys like Evans/Johnson/Wright/Jack will add much needed toughness to a team sorely lacking in that area for years.


Overall we were far lacking in Skill & Toughness and both have been addressed nicely.

See, I don't understand how you don't see Kapono as a skilled player. Your blind hatred/dislike clouds alot of your judgement of players.

Jamario was a guy who could play and considering we had him for the min. was a good investment regardless of what he sometimes did. He won us a few games in his rookie season ( a game against Philly comes to mind) and his upside is quite large if he wasn't so damn complacent and really lazy. And the fact you think Kapono is dumb as a brick is hilarious. The fact that he's a damn good 3 pt shooter, a good passer and a good team defender (he wasn't the worst defender on this team last year) and plays with a high IQ tells me he was pretty good. Was he frustrating? Yes. But don't tell me he wasn't skilled.

Again, for me, Evans will have the most noticeable impact on this squad. He addresses needs we sorely lacked.

When we signed Kapono i was thrilled but it didn't take long to see he was not good at anything excep at shooting, which he did on occasion. The fact is he was a horrible ball handler... almost clutsy, his travelling was frustrating to watch, horrible defender, slow, unathletic. Blind hatred? Wow, if i dislike a player and you disagree you call it blind hatred? The fact is Kapono is a nice guy who lacks skills imo. Not that big of a deal.

Kapono is argubally the best shooter in the world. That to mean makes him pretty skilled overall though, he lacks a lot of game as well.

Exactly.

Unless he breaks his foot in the first minute of the first game, I think it's pretty clear that he should have the biggest impact. We did just pay him $53 million. He better have more impact than Amir Johnson or Antoine Wright.
