The Raptors are voted the thrid lease watchable team in the NBA (http://www.grantland.com/story/_/id/...ass-rankings):
I have to agree with the assessment of the Raptors offence - I came very close to throwing a beer bottle at the TV every time Gay would take a few dribbles and actually back away from the three-point line, chewing up 5 to 10 seconds of the shot clock.TORONTO RAPTORS: 34
Bill: If Jonas Christ Superstar makes the leap, or even a semi-leap, I could see myself getting roped into a couple of crunch times. That's about it. I'm allergic to DeRozan's game and Rudy's game.
Zach: They are generally boring to watch, with DeRozan and Rudy curling around screens, catching, dribbling five times while they stand still, and then launching bad shots. But there's some potential here.
Bill: That would be a fun marketing campaign for the Raptors: "SCREEN CURLS, FIVE STANDING-IN-PLACE DRIBBLES AND AWFUL JUMP SHOTS Ö COME SEE YOUR 2014 RAPTORS!"
Zach: "ALSO: DOES KYLE LOWRY HAVE THE BIGGEST ASS IN THE LEAGUE? WATCH HIM GLARE ANGRILY AT RUDY GAY EVEN THOUGH THEY ARE FRIENDS!" You and Jalen need to pour one out for the Raptors mascot, though.
Zach: In all seriousness, Jonas is going to be fun, Amir Johnson is a hoop nerd favorite, and the coaching staff has hard work ahead of it maximizing the Lowry-Gay-DeRozan combination. Gotta get rid of that 3-D logo under the basket, though. It still freaks me out.
