Good to see Jameer Nelson playing well. He was one of the guys I hoped the Raptors would take in 04. Rumour was that when he started slipping Rob scrambled to try and pick up another first to get him. I wonder what our team might be like with him on it.

hopefully trevor ariza gets alot of playing time, i miss watching this guy like during his rookie year.

toronto was interested in trading for milicic, maybe he'll show us why.

T.O. is only getting a better draft pick baby.

It's depressing as a Raps fan to see teams like the Magic and the Hawks to be really coming together and turning it on at the end of the season. I know it's great for our pick, but it doesn't give me as a fan a lot of hope for next season.

Our best player is injured, what do you expect?

Even before the injury, both of those teams were really showing improvement in their games (at least the ones I'd been able to watch).




I think we have shown more improvements then both of them. I think in some power ranksings I saw us as far as 20th, and quite honestly, I think it was a fair rank.

Our future is brighter than


Bobcats, Hawks, Celts, knicks (unless outstanding moves are made this off season, they hav a lot of pieces to pull a blockbuster), sonics, t-wolves and blazers.

I also think that we have odds of becoming better than Orlando and Chicago. In terms of rebuilding/young teams, I think Orlando is closest especially now that Milici was added, but yeah, I still think that raps have more potential. Now with our pick, that can only help.

I think Sam will go with the big lineup of CV/Sow/Hoffa once again since it seems like a complementary matchup on both sides. CV and Hedo are big small forwards, Sow can use his hustle to slow down the strong and athletic Howard while Hoffa may keep with the aging Battie although he own him through experience.

Look for Mo Pete to play a full 48 tonight.

I know what you mean man. Setting aside the fact the Bosh is injured and we're not ranked too poorly, seeing what Orlando and Atlanta are doing is kinda making me jealous.

yadayadyada we get a higher draft pick though.
