Well, 4 games down and another 4 to go in the pre-season. For some consistency and a little team cohesiveness its about time Triano sets his starting five now so we’re ready for our opener on Oct. 27th. That being said, who’s your starting five to start the 2010-11 campaign?
What the fans saw on Wednesday was a big question mark, an uncertainty that isn’t likely to provide any more clarity when the Celtics visit on Friday or when Hedo Turkoglu makes his return on Sunday with his Phoenix Suns and Steve Nash.
I think the 2007 Raptor team's biggest problem was a lack of secondary scoring option. We had Bosh (who was neutralized by Mikey freakin' Moore), and everyone else. Was any team scared of Calderon or Parker dropping 25? Definitely not.
This year, we've got 2 legit scorers in Lowry and DeRozan, and even Salmons and Vasquez have the ability to turn a broken play into 2 points. I'm not suggesting this current team are worldbeaters, but their offense isn't as one-dimensional as the 2007 team, without even saying anything about the improved defense.
