    Could be the best or worst marketing campaign ever.

    It's very nice to see that some of our good young core players are representing for T.O off the court. That is a classy move and if Rupaul had half that amount of class and respect he wouldnt be the big douchebag he is today.

    This t-shirt is a little short of pretending to be a used car salesman from Texas to get all-star votes. But don't get me wrong, I too "heart" TO!!!

    Be grateful that we got players (American) who WANT to be here and start a new image for the city. Not players who come here, make bank and bounce. These dudes wanna be here. This is the first t-shirt campaign ever done by 1 or MORE players. Forget All-Star voting because we know and I'm sure they know that they're not getting in. Why not just look at it as them feeling our city and want to be here for years to come? I like this idea and movement because our team is getting warm to our city.

    Ditto. I think it's poor taste for them to single themselves out from their teammates like that.

    Wonder what we would see if the team enjoyed success. Individualism in a team sport especially a relatively small group (compared to other sports) can be a negative. It can open up the 3some to all kinds of speculation and clique-ism on issues dealing with on-court playing issues.

    My sentiments exactly. Why not embrace the movement? This team won't exactly be raking in the wins this year-so why not embrace the young, athletic, exciting players. Lord knows we won't have much else to cheer for.

    How often have we had this type of love and embrace of the city/fans from athletes-particularly bball. These guys have shown nuthin but love to the fans man-gotta respect that!

    This Young Gunz movement (don't get it twisted its still the Young Gunz), I think is an indication of the direction of the team as a whole. Let's go with it. Granted it can be a little corny a times (have you heard some of the chants haha), but why do we have to knock one of the few positive things surrounding this club?

    Creative ingenuity that will help in defining this team's personality and character.

    Some would stymie all forms of individualism under the meme of the collective good which is their right.

    I applaud it since in my opinion it is a win, win thing for the Raptors, their fans and the city of Toronto.

    I don't think publically or internally implying that one small group of players, who have done nothing in the league, is better or more special than the rest does anything to help the team.

    If Bargnani was pulling this crap on the side there would be an uproar in here.

    I don't know if they're implying that they're better than the team. It seems more like a movement to define the kind of ball they want to play, a fast-break quick-and-high scoring game. It's kind of a Run N Gun style, but with an emphasis on athleticism and high-flying dunks I guess.

    Looks like those t-shirts they used to sell on the discount tables in front of Stitches or International Clothiers
