    It's hard to say really, nobody that's left seems to have that strong personality. I'd say Jose though, he's the oldest(not that that always counts for anything but in this situation I think it does), longest tenured, and would be the best fit in my mind.

    Reggie Evans has been the leader (a.k.a "The Godfather") so far this season.

    I'm really liking the dynamic between Amir Johnson and Jose Calderon, and so I think that could lend some votes to Jose becoming the next leader.

    But, practically speaking, we need Bargnani to be our leader, even if he makes us cringe when he takes that 40 foot (lol) 3 pointer....(i bet he thinks to himself, Toronto fans will really love me when I make that shot).

    With only couple of seconds on clock, actually was a pretty good decision, the ball hit the rim and Raptors got an offensive rebound. What is wrong with that play???

    Reggie has been leading by example, and by the looks of it (calling the players-only meeting) the locker room as well. Hence, "The Godfather" reference. I think it's one of the major reasons he hasn't been traded by now. And I'm not sure it's a good idea to trade him anytime soon.

    Jarrett talked the talk, but didn't really walk the walk. He often looked more like a guy trying to do everything on his own than demand better of his teammates, or try to make them better.

    I agree. He plays the position as well which is a natural leadership position. Ironic isn't it?
