My, how can anyone not allow the Raps' fans to have some hope for their future???
"You can't always get what you want, but if you try sometime, you might find, you get what you need"
IT'S GRIT,GRIND AND HUSTLE , GRIZZLIES!!! KEEP THE FAITH !!!!
Raptor fans deserve a good team and if they can sneak into the playoffs they'd be scary.
I will say that the Raptors have good pieces in place. Only trouble is they lost their 1st Round Pick this year because of Kyle Lowry deal. DeMar DeRozan and Rudy Gay are good franchise cornerstones. Valunciunas is a good center.
PG- Kyle Lowry/John Lucas/
SG- DeMar DeRozan/Terrence Ross/
SF- Rudy Gay/Linas Klezia/
SC- Jonas Valanciunas
It has been one game..
I'm happyISH, but I don't half the fans realize the contract situation Raps are in now..not good
I'm predicting a typical first round exit Raps the next few years then hopefully something can happen after that.
Dynasty is a no no tho. Vince and Tmac were supposed to be the dynasty... A holes.
The OP disgraced my fanbase
Definitely a more exciting brand of basketball. Very athletic big wings, I don't know if it'll translate to wins.. Hard to play when 2 perimeter players are poor 3pt shooters (28%, 31%)
Sidepoint: Would Thunder have use for Bargnani and if so what would they offer?
I was thinking Maynor,Perk and the thunder 1st/Perry jones for Bargnani, Anderson, If perry inclu. Gray goes back.
Perks been inefficient but could teach Val a bit and provide interior presence, Thabeets taking over. Raps get a backup pg. and a 1st for this year in a deep draft (draft kabongo, trey burke, oladipo, noguiera)
Raps have Amir,Val,Perkins and small ball options.
Thunder get a Bargs, scorer to stretch the floor and good 2nd scoring unit big. Retain defensive presence in Thabeet and have Orton waiting in wings. Perkins is redundant. Alan Anderson adds scoring punch
With this roster the Raptors will perennially be average. Not good enough to contend and not bad enough to rebuild.
Rudy Gay's role in Memphis played a big factor to why his percentages were so low.
55% of his FGAs in Memphis happened in the first 15 seconds of the shot clock.
20% of his FGAs in Memphis happened in the last 4 seconds of the shot clock.
45% of his FGAs happened in the final 9 seconds of the shot clock.
I expect his numbers to go up.

Wow, uh, dynasty?
I like Rudy Gay and all but let's be serious.
