    Default The BRIGHT Future of the Raptors

    There's no denying that the 2009-2010 campaign was a disappointment, but this was also the year that Amir Johnson, Kid Dynamite & Money Weems have emerged as "The Young Gunz" and remain a big part of this franchise's bright future. Here's a YouTube tribute to them:

    Very nice mix. The Young Gunz were definitely the major highlight of the season for me. Their high energy play and hustle was exciting to watch. BC needs to make sure he resigns Amir! Along with JJ, I like this core moving forward (not earth shattering, but at the very least we'll have fun watching 'em).

    Thanks for posting this bhattmagandhi

    That was a wicked vid. Those guys were definitely the best part of the Raptors' season.

    The name "Kid Dynamite" has to be thrown in a fox hole and detonated. Immediately. Nice vid though.

    Yup. Just terrible.

    "Compton Kid" isn't too bad and DD has said he likes it sooo...



    As an aside if the Dinos manage to sign Amir, his jersey will definitely be the next one I buy.

    I don't know about the Compton Kid.
    It doesn't describe him as a baller, and in a couple years he'll have to change it (won't be a kid anymore).
    Kid Dynamite wasn't very good, but it's on the right track with the whole explosiveness thing.

    he shouldn't have been taken out of the starting line up.

    haha great video, I thought the post was sarcastic as first.

    I'm the first one to throw Jose under the bus, but he was in just as many plays at Jack.
