Default Raptors FACT or FICTION

It's the dog days of summer, and it looks as though the roster is (at least mostly) set, and there's little news about anything Raptors/NBA related now that the Olympics are done.

So, let's play Raptors FACT or Fiction. This was a game that some of us played over at the old site (scout), so it may seem familiar to some of you.

Here's how it goes.

-The original poster makes a statement
-The second poster decides whether or not it is a True statement (FACT) or a False statement (FICTION) - with or without an explanation.
Here's the important part... the second poster then makes a statement after they have answered.


Seem easy enough? I'll also make one for the NBA page and link them in each others' threads.

(And here is the link to the NBA FACT or FICTION)
NBA FACT or FICTION

So here goes.

FACT or FICTION - The Raptors will make the playoffs in the 2012/2013 season.

FICTION- With the quantum leap last year, the Raptors will see improvements, but they will be incremental until the ease into the top 10 in a couple of years, especially because there are some teams that will always keep their spot in the top 10.

FACT or FICTION - Jamaal Magloire will be a Raptor this season (either signed to be the 15th man - or brought in after a trade, OR brought in to be a big man coach).

fact, with lowry's ability to drive and kick, I can see a hell of a lot of points for Bargs with either catching and shooting, or catching then taking it to the whole as his mans off balance.

fact or fiction: Jose will get a standing ovation when he comes back to the ACC after whenever he get's traded
