    Default 7PM ET Raptors preview @ Raptors.com

    Not much to say until afterwards. I'm assuming it will be on NBA TV Canada as well.

    A preview is an introduction to the season is what I meant.

    And there is nothing to introduce.

    I think I've been following this team far too much this off-season. There's nothing new for them to say really, they've said a bloody lot.

    They've said a lot of nothing... Which is a good thing. No one can say with any degree of certainty what this team is going look like in 1 year.

    What can they say really?

    We're devoted.
    We love Toronto.
    We want to prove that Toronto is tough and belongs in the NBA.
    We're not tanking
    We're going to feel the Roster
    We have no expectations and we'll see how it goes
    We trust coach Casey
    We're focusing on Defence
    and then maybe a Public Relations shoutout to thank Brian Colangelo again after they tore him up limb from limb.

    And another thanks to the fans.

    WOW! Masai and Tim are AMAZING public speakers. When they talk they make you listen and believe. I really hope everything they say comes to fruition. I really like both of these guys.

    I missed that.

    Well, bulking up is not easy process, and no matter on what diet you're - you will gain fat. I'm pretty sure his Body fat % became bigger than Raps trainers want.

    I really would like to hear what Casey is thinking about JV's weight. If he's really required to loose weight because of his body fat %, that means his gotta take slower in bulking up process ( and add more semi intesity cardio exercises ).
    Some guys just can't take new body fat easily, as they get winded faster. <<< This especially happens to the guys who have athlete's body fat %.

    Been watchng this team since day 1 back in the Damon Stoudamire days. I don't think they've ever done an event like that before. Pretty cool.

    Tim Leiweke is an amazing speaker. When he speak you listen. And Masai is just full of passion. They're awesome.

    I don't know if it's necessarily body fat. It might just ahve to do with wanting him to regain his quickness. I'm sure things will work out as he gets into game shape.

    One thing Casey said in one interview this preseason was that he doesn't think JOnas doesn't need to focus on gaining weight anymore. That he will naturally get a bit bigger with age and that should be fine going forward. I think that sounds about right. I don't think he'll ever need to spend another summer where that's his major focus.
