there's obviously some rust with Green and Kawhi as evident on the first game but they were really good regardless..

the bench mob tho! Seems like they haven't lost a beat and smacked the crap out of the opposing team's bench lol.

IMO, these guys will definitely fair well in playoff time especially if they don't loose their rhythm. Kawhi, JV, Siakim, Lowry, VanVleet, Wright, Green, and Miles (if he continues his 3's), will definitely take us to finals, and maybe beyond.
And you're leaving out OG whose development playing alongside Kawhi could be key for us, Serge who is our defensive anchor, Norm who looked really good in that 1st game and showed he could play some point for us at times. Heck even Lorenzo looked like he can really contribute this season. We are really deep and a force to be reckoned with.

Anyone watch the Serge Ibaka How Hungry Are You? mini episodes. In Episode 4 he had DeMar, but in the most recent Episode 5, he had the mob squad. They are jokes, but I love the comaraderie, and their confidence shines through. I get the impression Freddy V is dialed in, for this season as well.

Anyone else watching this preseason game vs Utah? Surprisingly intense, Kawhi is playing well, it's just the 1st half but we're showing that our D is going to keep us in games this season even when our shots are not going in.

Damn Lowry gets thrown out of a preseason game!! LOLOL Smiling Face With Open Mouth And Smiling Eyes

Seriously can we move this bum already? He can leave just like his buddy DD can and we will be better off for it. Can't believe we signed this guy for 33 MILLION A YEAR and we still have two more seasons of him. Disappointed But Relieved Face
Toronto sports teams..............forever cursed. Profound sadness. :(

If Danny shoots like he shot tonight good luck beating us this season.

Is there a more interesting team to watch this season than the Raptors? I think we'll be must-watch now.

Man I haven't been here in a while. Glad to see this thread still going......gotta be one of the largest threads on RFD?? I just updated first post with pic of Kawhi....crazy.....had a young Derozan there for so long.

IMO, this was a great trade for the organization, even though it absolutely sucked to lose such a loyal player and fan favourite in Demar. Best Raptor ever, IMO. That being said, we needed to take a risk and this was a good calculated risk. Winning changes the mentality of a lot of players....hopeful to re-sign Kawhi but not upset if he leaves. With the young core we currently have and I believe only Norm under contract through 2020, we can start the re-build early if Kawhi leaves and will have a ton of cap space to hopeful to attract some young, fresh talent. Demar and Casey got us this far, but they weren't going to get us a championship. On paper, this is the best Raptors team I've ever seen assembled. Hope we stay injury free and live up to the hype. Should be a great season!!

Waste of money and effort IMO....other than Toronto, I don't see any city in the country which can/will support a major sport franchise. Toronto can be very fickle as well at times.

Just look at Vanc Grizzlies, the Montreal Expos, Winnipeg Jets V1, Quebec Nordiques etc.

Thanks!

Yes - selling tickets but only the lower bowl this year. I have sold or donated all the upper bowl tickets already.
