True! All great exciting moments. But i've never been this excited for the long term prospects of this team. After McGrady left we were always looking over our shoulders wondering who was next to leave Antonio? VC? This roster looks stable for the foreseeable future with players that seem to want to be here and in the case of Turkoglu, choosing Toronto over other U.S markets.

Dumbest statement I've read in here in a while

You have 2 legitimate second scorers

3 guys who between them should average more than 60 a game (Bargs, Bosh and Hedo
Jose and Jack who can average close to 30 between them
and a bench who can put in a few themselves

We'll be challenging the Suns for highest ppg

hm, not sure about you, but in my books, 60 games as starter is NOT half the season. Awesome indeed.

not sure about you, but i can't clearly call Bargs a 20ppg scorer when he hasn't averaged over 15 for a full season, or 20ppg this past season as a starter.

pretty sure i mentioned that it's possible for him to step-up, but he's not there yet.

We have Low Fan Esteem, or more likely, Kobe, Wade, Lebron envy.
Will we ever get past it, only time will tell.

I would be much more comfortable with Ariza at SF instead of Hedo. But I don't think BC could've pulled that off and still did his magic MLE keeping trick so whatev, I'll take it

If team chemistry is good I can easily see them making it to at least the second round of the playoffs.

I see us lacking defensively at the 2 guard.

I was totally excited during the 2000 dunk contest. That was some fun times.

I was also excited last year when lots of us thought this was the best Raptors team assembled by Colangelo.

great thread.

then you shouldn't say lewis is, because he averaged fewer points than andreea.

Andreea has 18ppg over 60 games as a starter, which is more than lewis has over 79 games as a starter.

And btw, over the full season he averaged 15.4, which is clearly and indisputable more than 15.

since we're being a technical ass, you're wrong on both accounts.

bargs averaged 17.7 ppg as a starter, same as shard.

shard was the second option the magic last season

they made it to the finals

bargs played 59 games as a starter on a 30+ win team

i think i'm given every right to call shard a legit second option over bargs

Team defense will be the key to a 50 win season.
Getting off to a good start is key.
Honestly I have never been so excited since VC and the Raptors
made the push in the playoffs and forced a game 7 with Phili.
Lets hope we can get back to that level.
Raptors Rule!
