    Big Game Boys.... chance to go 0-1 and set the bar where it needs to be. #22 played his first exhibition in Kansas last tonight too. The future is bright.

    I love how the season starts today, but raptors.com doesn't have the full season's TV schedule up yet.

    Anyways, no excuse to lose tonight's game. None.

    Drake is really toying with his own career here...I'm not sure what he has already banked, but I hope it's a lot.

    I hear ya, but I just can't see Lowry and Gay thinking that the road to their next paycheque rests with a 25% chance of Wiggins

    I felt a lot more sure about beating Boston before the Lakers trashed the Clippers on opening night. Now I'm paranoid.

    Difference is that the lakers actually have a ton of quality role players. I checked their bench and there aren't really any sure fire "scrubs", all guys who can contribute. Boston is basically tanking and outside of olynck, Wallace and Bradley their team pretty much sucks ass (sullinger too but he's out for tonight's game).

    If the draft is that good, and he is as average lately as they say, Toronto can guarantee almost that they can grab him one way or another, especially when other teams will know that he has his heart on playing at home.

    No the difference is the clippers played no D what's so ever. That played into Mike's hands. That was really out character for Doc.

    That too. But doc just took over the team so it's not a surprise

    Jeff Green, while maybe not living up to what many people thought he could be is far from a scrub, MarShon Brooks has shown flashes and can be a threat, add in Kris Humphries and Boston has a number of players that can creep up on you.

    All things being equal, I truly hope that this is the prevailing rule of thought Matt, that there are 3-4 guys that are all worthy of the number #1 spot. This would help my theory that a healthy tank would guarantee Toronto gets its hometown guy, as other teams would prefer not draft the guy who wants to be somewhere else.

    Hard to keep the same defense when you go from Garnett to Blake on defense, and Garnett to DJ on rebounding. One thought I had last night during the Lakers game is that, if Kobe was playing, they would have lost.

    Anyway, I was kind of hoping that Nicki Minaj would be the new mascot. She's already inflated.
