    Game #1 of the preseason tonight

    Big storylines this year

    Can the raps land Harden or be competitive enough to appeal to Giannis
    What happens to Terrence Davis
    Does Chris Boucher breakout (now 5th in MIP odds)
    How does Baynes replace Serge and Marc
    Does Masai renew his contract
    Do OG and Norm take the next step?
    Any surprises like Paul Watson or Malachi Flynn

    LETS GO!

    I doubt the raps can land Harden. Not sure he is a good fit either. He needs a lot of touches, even more than Kawhi.

      If they get Harden - Raps would need to run two offences - one for when he’s doing his one man show and a second for when he’s on the bench. Great individual player but not an easy fit.

          Agreed, stay far far away from him.

            Agree, he would be toxic with this group.
            I want to see him go play with Irving and Durant.

            That would be awesome.

              I think far and away the #1 question is what happens w. Masai.

              I do not see the Raptors contending for a title this year but I do see them being a playoff team. Second round, maybe East finals if things break their way.

              Next year is the year that the Raptors should go for it, which I would trust Masai can position the Raptors for so long as he is allowed to by ownership. If ownership gives any sign they will not let Masai work unfettered I expect he is gone and the reputation of the Raptors takes a multi year hit before it recovers (as does their hopes of playing for a title anytime soon)

                They were impressive tonight. Everybody played well and man the shooting . . . wow. Paul Watson and Malachi Flynn were very good. I wonder if Flynn might snuck up in top 10 . . . OG, Pascal, Thomas, Flynn, Davis, CB . . . excellent. They played 17 players tonight (they all scored) and 12 played more than 10 minutes. Watanabe was OK for the 1st time. It was fun for the 1st time out . . . Now Monday . . .

                  Nurse is really talking up Matt Thomas, looks like he's gonna to crack the rotation. love what Flynn brought. Really hoping to see Paul Watson crack the lineup as well. He's a hard worker and the raps need a real SF off the bench, Norm is a 2.

                  Len didn't get much time, Raps are going to be thin upfront if any injuries happen

                    Well said . . . as for Len they know what they have. Don't sleep on him, he is pretty good. Len, Baynes and CB . . . we will be OK.

                          Yep. Good chance Ujiri won't re-up with the Raps now. Not sure where Raps go from here. Hopefully, Spicy P, OGOMy and FVV can continue to grow into their roles.

                            Its always been a long shot that Raps can get Giannis. Looking at their history, Kawhi was the only superstar that came here, and even then, it was a one year rental.

                              As we have seen lately, player empowerment means that a long term commitment is only as long as they like it. I say no way to Harden, not a guy that fits the team or philosophy. So much money would need to go out to balance the payroll it would be a disaster.
