    Anyone else notice that so far 7 Raptors have blocked a shot tonight? (And surprisingly the only person who hasn't is JJ ... maybe because he's only played 3 minutes.)

    Sadly, I wish that were the case.

    Actually Kawasaki is a huge fan favorite, who loves the game, and isn't quite prime time material. Think sort of a cross between Brian Scalabrine and Bruno.
