    Raptors developing a new era/dynasty?

    Forgive me if this may offend some of you PSD users, but I reside in Toronto and so therefore I have became a Raptors fan since I was a kid. Any Raptors fan can understand the pain/rage I feel and would really like the time where we can actually get INTO the game and be a contender. I know it's not much as off right now, but with the recent acquisition of Rudy Gay do you think we can become a contender within the next two years?

    We do have a pretty good looking starting 5 unit right now with...
    Lowry, DeRozan, Gay, Johnson, Valunciunas

    and then back up units like...
    Lucas, Ross, Fields, Anderson, Gray, Bargnani

    I unno I'm just drooling right now in thoughts of what we can potentially trade our bench units for.And for next year who we can pick up via free agency.I unno if there is a thread like this already, but I didn't see it and at the same time I really wanna know what people out there thinks.

    So whatchya think? We can build a nice enough team to compete for the trophy or we got ourselves excited too early?

    Not contenders unless you guys obtained one more huge star or a few great players, but you guys are a playoff team now in my opinion and definitely one of my favorite teams to watch (not that you haven't always been).

    The Raps aren't gonna have any money to really play with in FA after this season. Hell, Bargs, Amir and Gay will make 38 million combined in 2014-2015. That's terrible.

    They have a good amount of talent, but let's save the D-Word for a more fitting team.

    If we started the season over, I think we could be 5-6th seed.

    Colangelo better trade Primo Pasta before the deadline. Our big men are still pathetic though. Amir Johnson has the highest foul rate I've ever seen.

    unless Valanciunas develops into a SUPERSTAR, no.
    A bunch of players that are above average to fringe allstars wont get away with a ring in the modern era.

    You probably had good intentions, but

    It can happen if the team has a top 5 defense (see 04 Pistons). Unfortunately the Raptors are 26th in defense.

    Billups, Sheed, Wallace in 2004 are all better than any raptors player currently. Also i could argue for Rip being better than Gay.

    The raptors are far from being a contender, but they will now be a playoff team for some years to come. I would be happy if i was a raptors fan.

    If the raps can dump bargs and amnesty kleiza, free up 15 mil, get a guy like Paul millsap and a decent bench guy they can be a 5-6 seed for the next couple yrs. as a raps fan I'll take that.
