    Well I did intimate that he made me a believer from distance this year, but I still find that surprising when I think of some of the shooters of the Rapz past like Dell M.F. Curry, J. Kapono and Wizard Williams.
    How much attention have you actually paid to the Raps this year?

    OMFG! Seriously this should not even be a discussion.

Guy has a good contract year and he is suddenly in the discussion of greatest Raptor of all time, B**** Please. I like Lowry's game, I have learned this year that I don't need to worry about him taking deep 3's in clutch situations, which instinctively drive me crazy. He has all the heart of a Alvin Williams(another Villanova product) playing through the pain of injury probably to the detriment of his later years. Has he had the best season ever of a Raptor? a more viable yet debatable point. Lowry didn't even make the all-star team, he didn't set any franchise records(except maybe for triple doubles in a season, have to look that up), He didn't set any NBA records(like Calderon at the stripe), didn't lead the NBA in any statistical category. You can wash his balls until they glisten and shine but best Raptor of all time, patently ridiculous.

    Thats fucking huge. He won us 84 extra possessions for the cost of an opposition possession.

    If on average teams score 1 point per possession, thats 84 more points for us and 84 less points for the opposition, +168 point differential from Kyles extraordinary ability to set his feet straight and telepathically read a drive.

    lol this comment. So lets forget about the engine that gave us a franchise leading wins column, and instead focus on Calderons FT%. Good call, definitely what makes or breaks an all-time great Franchise player..

    Kyle is epic. If he resigns, he will go down as one of the best raptors ever.

    2. Chris Bosh
    3. Demar Derozan
    4. Kyle Lowry
    5. T-Mac
    6. Mo pete
    7. Jose Calderon

    Future #1 on the list: JV

    I might be forgetting someone and the last three aren't really in order.

    I'm a little surprised no one has picked Bosh over Vince yet. Vince had 2 great years, probably better than any of CBs, but falls off a bit after that. Chris Bosh had 5 great, consistent years. They just could never put anything better than an adequate team around Bosh.

    With Lowry and JV, we may end up retiring BCs collars into the rafters.

    It was weird but I think, in New York, you're either a Knicks fan or a Nets fan. You route for whoever the other one is playing.

    I'm sure the Nets still stank like New Jersey to most basketball fans....

    1.Vince
    2.Bosh
    3.Demar
    4.Lowry
    5.AD
    6. Damon and Jose

    I think this is the best Raptors team of all time already. The reason I say that is because we are just seeing the beginning of these guys together. Once this team sheds some of the salary baggage that they are carrying and revamps the bench next season I truly believe we are looking at a title contender. I'm not sure if you could have said that about the Vince/AD team. Re-signing Lowry is the most important decision in this franchises history. You have to pay him whatever it takes to keep him here, I doubt he will want to leave anyways. Re-sign Vazquez, re-sign Pat. Trade up in the draft! Use a pick from next year, or and try to move up into the top 15 this year. Idealy getting a wing player, but just pick the best player available at an position. Sign a quality big man who can guard stretch 4's and rebound that is his only role. Move Amir back to the bench, still playing 20-25 minutes, but more of an energy type guy and only ever play him and JV at centre. Could be off base with these thoughts, but I don't think a major free agent sign is necessary, at least not next year.

    The core of this team is rock solid, and they have cap space to maneuver. The Raptors have never had this type of dynamic. An impressive present, and a future that looks incredibly promising. I love this team, Lowry is already my favourite Raptor of all time a few more years and Raptors fans could be talking about him, like Pistons fans talk about Isaiah.

    Fuck Brooklyn!
