And the best part is..... this team blows that one out of the water.

A Raptor-record 50 wins this season.

Book it.

the whole team is scorers... no idea what you're getting on about... who's kidding who, defense is the real worry.

I;m excited about this years team because of the many combinations and options the Coaches have to play with.

Prob is, if the team is a bust there is very little room to tinker and move.

I picked last year to be a bust. This year will be exciting, but not championship exciting. But very easy to watch and cheer for.

i don't follow your logic here. if this team is a bust, there are a number of very tradeable and very attractive assets, the first of which is chris bosh. re-tooling should not be incredibly difficult if the team is a bust. minor tweaks are harder, but an overhaul isn't too far-fetched.

i don't think it would be nice saying that our white european majority is our biggest concern

rasho, wright, jack and evans will hopefully help in that regard. i don't see us any worse than last season.

I'd actually say Bosh is more of a 1.5 - incredible second option, subpar first option.

somehow it's simultaneously impossible and quite probable this team is blown up by the trade deadline. that's my gut feeling as a long-time Raptors fan. I'm still waiting to see who emerges as the glue guy. that for me is what gets you those wins in tighter than tight games. we haven't had a guy like that, that can step in and make a big play at both ends of the courts when the chips are down since Garbo.

great expectations leads to disappointment..if you dont expect something big, huge, and grand then.............................................. .................................................. ....



























well....ummm.....jus...yea....
