    Default Starting Five Predictions for Every NBA Team (Toronto) Next Season

    Got this off of Bleacher Report's 'Starting Five Predictions for Every NBA Team Next Season'

    Toronto Raptors

    Starting Five: Kyle Lowry, DeMar DeRozan, Rudy Gay, Jason Maxiell, Jonas Valanciunas

    You might be wondering how the Toronto Raptors are going to have enough money left over to sign Jason Maxiell and fill the void at power forward.
    I'll give you a hint.
    It involves Andrea Bargnani and the amnesty clause. With the Italian big man off the books, Toronto has a bit more financial flexibility and the ability to make one relatively large move during the 2013 offseason.
    The Raptors are set everywhere else, and Maxiell is a cost-effective option.
    This team could surprise a lot of people.

    Thoughts?
    Would you guys be satisfied with Jason Maxiell .. ?

    WTF is this guy talking about? Amnestying Bargnani saves barely more money than amnestying Kleiza. Yes, we could probably afford Jason Maxiell, but is he a big signing? Will he even get a MLE offer? I doubt it. He looked pretty horrible in the Detroit games I saw this year. He is, after all an aging undersized PF who depends a lot on athleticism. I would be thoroughly unimpressed with this signing. Though I also would understand it's just a stopgap measure.

    Bottom line....Bleacher report is a diarrhea factory.

    This is why you don't listen to Charles Barkley. He doesn't know what he's on about 70% of the time

    Let me be the first to say that I'm pumped for the Maxiell era to begin in Toronto.

    It was a joke. I want nothing to do with Maxiell at this point.

    Every team needs an undersized power forward who can't shoot the three (0 for 5 for his career) and his average or below average in every facet of the game.

    Watch BryCo throw a 3 year/$20M contract Maxiel's way!

    I want BryCo gone but I doubt he is that stupid.

    Maxiell is better than Amir?

    By the way Bleacher Report pays for exposure. They're all over CNN. Doesn't mean that it is a legit resource.

    Huh? Is this supposed to be some sort of dig? Are you butt hurt because some school in Georgia rejected you? Not down with traditional black universities? Isn't this the wrong thread for that dig? By the way, just because I reference them doesn't mean I went to one. This is funnier than tenorthewin...well done sir.

    Actually I was referring to those Everest commercials that are on TV nonstop on every channel.

    And if you haven't noticed yet, the reason a college/university would even need a commercial; is because it is indeed shitty.

    I love how a bad premise/starting post can get a thread to run for 3 pages on RR. Talk about spinning gold out of straw.

    The most the Raptors can offer Maxiell is MLE after a Bargnani amnesty.

    Does not get Raps below salary cap.

    B/R is brutal.... but then again they are not the only ones out there who are brutal.

    Also, Maxiell would be an awesome guy coming off the bench but he is still a borderline starter on a team that finished worse than Toronto. B/R either has low standards for their own ideas and/or the Raptors.

    What app? I think they're advertising it since mid regular season. Anyway.. BR has very good marketing staff, but sadly, there is good proofread ( who knows NBA stuff ) worker..it's not first time when I see BR talks shit in similar articles like this. You can come to conclusion, really, who cares about Raptors!? Same goes to some NBA.COM writers/proof readers who can't even put correct stats when JV won rookie of the month award!!!!!!

    We can get Maxiel possibly for the vet minimum, he can backup Amir as our backup PF, he's definitely not a starter PF quality, a third string PF on a good team. He and Acy can rebound wonders for us or move Acy to the backup SF position.
