New to raptors Republic, first post here.
I remember at the beginning of the season, either MU or Casey (I'm sure someone knows the exact quote) said that in order to be a strong competitor, it is necessary for a team to have an identity. Do these post-rudy gay raptors have an identity that you are seeing game in and game out? If so, what is their identity and why?
From the games I remember clearly (Charlotte, both bulls games, okc and indiana) they're gritty, they're playing all out effort from beginning to the end of the game. The passing can be beautiful, playing like one brain on offense (except for the random vasquez three points attempt). They're never giving up on defense. This is a team that is playing tough, and playing with passion. Whether this lasts for more than a month remains to be seen, but I'm loving it.
