    This was a tough decision. There is nobody that I am super excited about; however, there are a few that I am really pulling for. Couldn't help but be super excited for Bargs when he was playing so well this year, but always felt like it was a tease and I never fully committed.

    In the end I chose Calderon because he has been a great professional for this team and has resisted all reasons to pout or sour when others were injected into the starting line-up or trades fell through. Just respect the guy.

    For the first time in a long time I actually like all of the players on the team. That being said I voted for Bargnani but was tough not to vote for Jose.

    Im picking Solo because I think with more playing time he could be a dark skinned version of JaVale McGee.

    Nah but for real I picked Amir, dude is gonna look like D12 next year if hes on the same regiment that he was on last summer.
    I thought you said "nah but for real"?

    I picked Bargs. He's certainly one of (if not the most) offensively gifted 6'-12" PF we have.

    And he's dating a real hottie. LMAO!

    They're pro ballers. If they're all not dating hotties there is something wrong with the story.

    I voted for DeRozan because he's want it and he works hard. I think he has all the talent to put it together one day. The way some fans put him down and suggest his days are numbered, it gives me the feel that he's an underdog. I love cheering for the underdog.

    I've only ever owned 1 Raptors jersey, and it's Bargnani's. I bought it at the ACC during his rookie year and I still wear it to every game. I love it when he gets cooking and is just stroking everything, or doing the il Mago reverse, but I can't call him my favourite. Too much indifference, too much passivity, too many blown box-outs (this is my biggest peeve because its really not hard to do)

    I vote for Jose. Pure class, team-first, doesn't back down from anybody and he's got that fire. I hope he sticks around forever (at the right price of course)

    Aaron Gray!

    I have a thing with players who aren't actually good enough to start but is starting for whatever reasons, and plays every game as if it's his last. Well Gray doesn't actually play hard every game, but it's close enough. At least he doesn't just stand around the court lifeless.

    I didn't vote for kleiza, but I like how he plays. I enjoy how scrappy he is, like when he got in Harrington's face. We need players like that because everyone else is so timid.

    I voted for DeMar, I just like watching him play and I hope he can improve his game in other areas. If he adds some distance to his jumpshot (3pt line), and gains a bit more strength I think he will be hard to stop.

    I also really like Bargs and Calderon. Both are extremely talented. After DeMar, Claderon, and Bargs there is a huge gap in talent.

    I also like Bargs and Calderon, I think after DeMar, Bargs and Calderon there is a big drop off in talent.

    He is the anti-Raptor of years past.

    Also I respect how hard he worked to return from a serious injury and played balls out when he did return - no excuses.

    I voted for DeMar because he works so damn hard to try and be a better player. He truly wants to an All Star and is working to reach that goal despite a current lack of skill. If he ever gets a consistent shot and improves his basketball IQ he has a shot at being really good.

    If I could I'd vote for D. Casey.
