For me, it has GOT to be..... Andrea Bargnani.
I'm just dying to see how much he has improved during the offseason. I'll be rooting for him no matter what.

(This was a pointless thread .. I thought I would be able to write much more)

Bargs! He is the real X factor. I think JO is going bring it but it is up to Bargs to make the difference!

JO all the way.
i'm afraid to see Bargs because i'm afraid to be let down (again).
i have zero expectations for Bargs this season, that way i cant be disappointed, and hopefully i'll be pleasantly surprised.

One only has to watch this to remember how capable Bargnani is of making a significant impact on this team...

that was awesome.

i miss rapsfan's mixes. they were the best. Anyways, Hell yeah i'm damn excited to watch Bargnani do his thing this year. I think the whole league will be surprised by what he will bring.

and like Benzo, i'm excited about the new Joey Graham.

Well then I'm sure you'll be upset to hear that he strained a hamstring or something yesterday and will be re-evaluated today. Likely nothing too serious, but still unfortunate as Joey needs all the prep time he can get.

Joey Graham suffered a strained right hamstring at practice tonight.
He will be re-evaluated tomorrow.
I spoke with Graham though and he doesnít think this injury is a big deal, and heís not expecting to miss any time.

The fringe guys...Adams, Graham, Solomon, Ukic, Hump et al.

I'm excited to see who's going to bring it, step up and become an integral part of the rotation.

I agree.

Dont expect to see much from Ukic this season, a really nice play here and there, but not too much in general.

Solomon is going to be a great change of pace player coming off bench behind calderon, solid shooter, quick, decent defensively, mature.

All true hinesty is, with me at least, Adams is going to surprise everyone, just like Moon last year. Hard worker, tough, loves to defend and drive. Curious to see Solomon, Adams and Moon breaking out on teams.

Maybe I'm the only one, but besides seeing what Jermaine can do to help this team I'm very excited about Kapono and what he can do this season when most of the attention goes towards Bosh and JO in the post. If Jason can continue his hot shooting ways, he can hopefully be that player from a couple seasons ago in Miami and the one we saw last spring against the Magic.

Well, seeing as I am the man with the plan, I really wanna see the most important piece of the puzzle. You guys are all looking to see the guys that you already know what to expect from, yet the one place we have been really scared about nobody seems to have interest.

I can't wait to see Moon. And on a lessor extent, Kapono.

The three is where our fortunes lay, and Moon was talking pretty big the other day about his offseason improvements. He claimed serious rim attacks this year. And Kapono showed some serious offensive pop in the last few games, I wanna see if he can keep that up.

I hope I don't get shot for this, but..

I'm very interested to see how Ford does in a new team and whether Nesterovic will get to playoffs again.

Oh and Moon, of course.

You might not get shot, but you do seem to be a little confused considering neither are a Raptor.

Not too concerned on how Ford does, but I would love to see Rasho as a Raptor again one day soon.
