Today is a special special special day for Toronto Raptors fans; the boys are back on TO grounds and there is only eight days left until they hit the court in Halifax to begin preseason training camp.
We all suffered the NBA-less three months but in eight days, we’ll all be sitting on the couch watching the TO boys working towards the playoffs. Did I just say playoffs? Yeah, playoffs. There is no doubt in my mind that the new guys won’t help make the Raptors better and stronger, [and hopefully on their way to the 2012-2013 Playoffs]. Landry Fields, master of creating offense. Kyle Lowry, we’ll see him at the free throw line often this season. And, Jonas Valanciunus, well, let’s just pray for a quick recovery on that calf strain. Can’t forget about our rookies, Terrence Ross and Quincy Acy; yeah, we’re making playoffs.
Raptor fans, this is our big year.
Bryan Colangelo, I must say, you have done well with the roster this season. The boys all have their own talents and skills, and together they can become a better team. Better than some past seasons. But that’s the past, no more slow and steady development, [we are ready for this]. Is this sounding too much like the Avengers? I nominate Jonas V as Captain America. [Although he has nothing to do with America, Captain Toronto]
If you think otherwise of the TO Raptors, I officially consider you not a fan. The fan support is huge, so guys, keep on cheering.
The boys are back.
