Really?! It's just been one year? Hard to believe. There is certainly a lot of growth left for this franchise but how many teams can look at one single trade that took them (intentionally or not) from lottery hopeful to conference champion contender in one year? A draft pick or free agent? Maybe (you could answer Lebron for both). But I can't think of a similar trade. There have been some big moments since (Lowry signing) and there will likely be some more but if the Raptors go on to anything notable in the next 5-10 years, you have to say the turning point was one year ago today. Kind of ironic that we are playing the Nuggets.
BTW..if you're bored today...there are many old threads that got completely hijacked by the deal. It's funny to go back and look at some of those with hindsight.
