    Default 10-11 Raptors More like Team USA & 09-10 Raptors More Like The Timbervolves?

    "I don't want to come off sounding like a prima donna or sound like I'm complaining or anything," Love clarified. "I just feel like, since I've been here, it's really been a great team atmosphere. We feel like we have a chance to win this whole thing. I think everybody is just coming in with a great attitude and appreciating everybody as a whole, and really becoming a family.

    "I'm just saying in a 15-win season, last year with the Timberwolves, a lot of stuff happened...a lot of new players...we had blown up that team. Heading into this year, we need to just start becoming a family, kind of like it is here, and integrate that family atmosphere into the Timberwolves."

    This was supposed to be a poll

    I couldn't get the poll questions the way I wanted to and attempted to delete the message.

    Sorry about the confusion. My bad.

    The idea is

    Do you think that the 09-10 Raptors were like the 09-10 Timbervolves to the extent that neither was a family?

    If so do you think that this hurt the Raptors or didn't make a difference?

    On the other hand

    From you have read this summer do you think that the 10-11 Raptors will have an attitude more like Love said that Team USA has, one of Ubuntu?

    If so do you think that this will help them more games?

    ok get it now. Yes the raps last year were like the t wolves in the sense of poor chemistry; however, comparing them to team USA is about as relevent as comparing them to last years ofsaa champs. I do think they have better team chemistry although not sure how far that takes us. I would also add that it is different playing for your country and that also adds the family analogy to the chemistry one. However now that I think about the term "chemistry" it seems alchemy is the more accurate term as you can never really predict the reactions of players. Short story long, go raps!

    yeah chemistry will pull through on some nights to win some games im sure...but it's only one little part of the entire equation. Solid draft picks+young players=great job by BC for putting it all together so far. Now its only a couple years away before this team starts getting noticed again.

    Chemistry isn't terrible. The starters will get along, Wright and Davis will join the "Young Gunz" clique. Bargs has always been his own man. As has Calderon.

    I'm not too worried.
