I just bought me a 10-game pack for the upcoming Raptors season and can't wait for the NHL season to be over.

I was reading today that Villanueva will be playing the three, I thought that maybe with his size 6'11 and 265 he could maybe play some center has anybody heard who the starting C will be this year or do we get to look forward to more Hafa-time?

Discuss the Raptors NOW!!!

The problem with the Raptors is they have bums running the office, they dont spend any money during the off-season and pulling off decent-big trades during the season seems out of the question.

I dont know if its the weather, the taxes or the team, but it just seems like we cant get solid players (big name or role players) to stay in our city.

T Mac, Vince, Camby, Stoudamire, Zo etc.

Even role players like Arroyo flourish OUT of Toronto (ie. In Utah and then Detroit)

Why cant we get it right?

For the upcoming season, I think there are a few keys to us making an attempt to make the playoffs.

1. Secure a reliable big man (We have decent Centers, but nobody that can bang with Shaq, Yao, Duncan, JO etc. night after night) I know the players I named are the elite big men, but we need someone who will atleast be putting up a good fight.

2. Stronger bench (We have good core players: Bosh, JRose, AW, Mike James etc but for the 10-15 mins. that they are on the bench, we cant let games slip away with sloppy bench play)

Just my 2 pennies..

Peace

I don't like all this negative talk. Our GM is a ****** yeah...But we have a PF with the most upside in the league, healthy veterans and a solid young core.

They better not put Bosh at the five too much this season. If we do it too much, I'm pretty confident he's going to be leaving once his contracts up.

For Sale: Nike Air Max 1 Red (Mesh) sz.11 DS, Shox Stunners navy/silver VNDS and Zoom Flight 2k3 navy/silver VNDS both size 11

Raptors better lock up Bosh by the end of next season to a max-contract.

I think we'll just have to be very patient with this team. In 2 years time we'll have 3 MORE 1st-round picks on this team(Araujo, Bosh, Graham, Villineuva + 3 more guys) and we'll have Rose's contract off the books. We seriously wont make the playoffs until 2008.

Didn't see the game last night, but looks like CV, Brown and Calderon impressed.

Well from what I've read and seen Hoffa lost some weight but here's the bad news....he's still the same old Hoffa. Also Charlie V looked pretty good in that preseason game and I'm willing to bet that Calderon will have the starting job by the all star break.

the reason why we didnt make any big trades in the offseason is because we are in the rebuilding process.. rose, james.. etc all expire before or by 2007.. thats when the big moves are gopnna be made.. and money is being saved to sign bosh to max contract
