Based on the old CBA I 100% agree but with the new CBA the Raps signing top talent should be easier - there will only be so many max positions for each team and more guys than positions to fill. Gone are the days of NY where a team has multiple max players with ballooning salaries, aged players that are over paid, etc. Sure they will happen on occasion but no where near like it was.

Others certainly can comment on this better than I but when looking at the new CBA it should help balance the league out - in theory anyways

Preemptive Edit:Yes the Nets are kindof the exception but they built that team from the older CBA and they will get caught like the Knicks did - a bloated team that won't quite make it.

Regarding the thread, I like the team picking up KL's option. The team needs him and his salary - might be easier to trade Lowry this year at a lower price than trying to do a S&T where KL dictates how it will go or having him walk with no compensation.

I'm surprised there is even a debate that his option was picked up - tanking or not - the team can't just give away their players for nothing. The media and other fan bases may dislike the players on the Raps but they are not worth nothing as some spout off here.
top tier I meant guys like lebron/howard/paul etc
those guys won't come here and there will always be high demand for them in any CBA. It's the borderline max guys we can easily attract if we have a good team. I'd love to be proven wrong, but just look at this summer's crop, the best shot for CP/Howard is to team up in Atlanta with Horford- and yet they won't even consider it.

Lowry is as cut as any Raptors' fan has ever seen him. Looks like a different dude.

K Lo is going to tear it up this year. Hoping for no extended injuries though.

Don't believe me, just watch.

He looks the same to me...unless he has developed multiple eating disorders and lost an insane amount of weight, I think he is roughly the same as last year.

still looks chubby relative to other pg's. but then again I think it's just his body type. for example chris paul also has a thick build but he's definitely not "fat" as some on here have called lowry

He looks like he's wearing a couple shirts. The pic from a month ago he looked 20lbs lighter. We'll see...
