    Anyone see Nicholson show up today for Orlando? 24 points and a nasty block. How good do you guys think he can be in the NBA?

    They're already talking about him on NBA.com!

    http://hangtime.blogs.nba.com/2012/0...s-early-magic/

    recommend you check out the interview with him at the bottom of the link.
    Seems like a real laid back cat (not to mention he's SMRT!), who has ALOT of confidence in his game. Could be the next great Canadian!

    Although, always have to keep in mind; Summer League doesn't tell you who can play. Only tells you who can't.

    From Doug Smiths Blog:
    http://thestar.blogs.com/raptors/

    "One thing we don’t know yet, though, is who’s on the Summer League roster. It’s a rather fluid situation as teams try to piece together workable groups and agents try to get their clients into the most enviable situations.

    One thing to know, though: The only people on the Toronto roster who really matter are Ed Davis, Terrence Ross and, to a somewhat lesser degree, Quincy Acy.

    The rest is flotsam and jetsam and while someone will undoubtedly score a lot of points and make their names known, this is all about seeing how Davis and Ross and Acy perform."

    Default Raptors Summer League 2012?

    Does anyone know when the Raps play in the Raps schedule is for Summer League 2012 and what their Roster is? Been looking on ESPN and NBA.com and don't seem to see it.

    Also, Sullinger & Jones had a great first game. How much stock can we put into the results from summer league.

    My bad if there is a thread already started about this. Please feel free to delete or move if one already been started.

    PEACE!

    Kid's got some talent for sure. If he can be consistent, he could be somewhere in the top10 of next years rookie ladders. Lots of minutes up for grabs for forwards in Orlando.

    There are certain things you know will translate.

    Nicholson likely won't be 20/10/2 in his first year.

    His foot work...that baby hook, 15-18ft...and rebounding could easily translate to

    maybe 10pts 7boards and a block in his rookie year.

    My optimistic hope for Acy....becoming another Faried....similar physical measurements, skills (rebounding priority), motor. As we know rebounding is a skill most transferable to the next level and Faried has done this very well in Denver where he became a favorite and starter for George Karl. Fingers crossed...Acy duplicates this in TO.
    I remember when I call faried name before the draft people thought I was crazy then nene got traded halfway throught the season lol.

    Nicholson looked real good yesterday on Orlando, really good.

    Interesting that you mentioned the rookie ladder because I was thinking that unlike previous years this years should shift quite a bit each wek. There was so much talent in this years draft.

    I'm excited for the Raptor' first game this Friday!

    Terrence Ross, Quincy Acy, Jeremy Lamb, Royce White, Terrence Jones all in one game? Hmmmm.

    I really do hope Toronto dominates this year's summer league like we did two seasons ago, Demar and Sonny went OFF.

    Does anyone know the full team roster of this year's Summer League? I'm curious to know if Derozan will be part of it.

    Andre Drummond scored just 3pts and grabed just 3rebounds against the magic in the summer league. I knew he was raw, but had no idea THAT he was that raw
