    It would be great but how can you truly be happy about it! I mean, these players will be playing their first game at home officially. And their city is in total disarray. So yes it would be nice to beat them but I am sure their hearts will not be 1000% into it.

    Just My thought anyway.

    Go Raps!

    For all those attacking me for what I said, I'm just sick of people in Toronto repeating to themselves and others that the Raptors are sh*t and haven't changed, it is also a new roster...

    Maybe I misinterpreted what he was saying.

    Isn't there a difference between saying the Raptors are sh!t, vs. acknowledging that another team is better?

    I dunno, the feeling of "submission" in the Raptors franchise is too familiar... We almost beat Indiana, so I'm not going to hang my head against BK.

    Basically, I don't want to completely count out the Raps, not like this comment said earlier (you didn't say it, just sort of annoyed me):

    There's no chance in hell we beat Brooklyn tonight. No chance.

    We should have won that game, but it's just one game... and Indi was without Granger, to play devil's advocate.

    On paper, Brooklyn has the 2 best individual players between the 2 teams: DWill and JJ. I personally think they are overhyped, I think that their bigs (Lopez & Hump) are overrated and think that their bench is abysmal. But I understand why people rank them higher than Toronto, too.

    I think Toronto matches up quite well with Brooklyn, as long as Lowry, Fields and DeRozan can contain DWill, JJ and Wallace. I think Toronto needs to pound them down low, setting Bargnani on attack mode and slapping him if he takes more than 20% of his shots from outside 10' against Hump.

    I'm with you on the 2nd point. Even last year with a very weak roster, the Raptors were in basically every game, and could've beaten any team on any night. This year, with a noticeably improved roster, should mean more wins.

    For the record, I think Brooklyn is overhyped too. I don't see them as a top-4 seed at all, but I do see them making the playoffs relatively easily.

    Brooklyn's bench sucks.. once their bench comes in, that's when we'll attack. Hopefully Amir/Jose have a good game tomorrow.

    Just announced that NBATV has picked up the Brooklyn/Toronto game for tomorrow night. I would expect a lot of viewers due to the significance of the first game in Brooklyn.

    Bargnani and Val are going to destroy in the paint. Lopez is a lazy piece of shit on the boards and defense. Val should dominate

    From this point on (after the Demar extension), the season just got interesting. I'd love for BC to "spin" his way out of this one. There's no chance in hell we beat Brooklyn tonight. No chance.

    I like the fact that you have a picture of Colangelo avatar when you say that because he actually believes that. In the end of the day its the stars that close out games not the bench which is why the Raptors struggled all these years when the starting lineup didn't look like a starting lineup but a bench one. However Brooklyn can falter & will falter when one of their starting player's will go down to an injury due to the thin bench, hopefully it will be against the Raptors & Bargnani and Derozan better show up!!!

    Default Rivalry in the making

    If we beat Brooklyn at their home opener, a game that will be down in history I'm sure that would put a bitter taste in their mouths every single time they play the raps. We already lost to them once in the playoffs, and we're both in the Atlantic so this is just more fuel for the fire.

    Just to rub it in our wounds, Charlotte beat Indiana today 90-89 and the best player was Kemba Walker going 10-21 with 30 points.

    OK, I'll play along. Raps beat the Nets 102 - 97. Demar scores 27 points and 5 rebounds. He shocks the crowd with 2 amazing highlight reel dunks and will even drain 3 treys. There, that makes me an awesome superfan such as yourself.

    PS> I'm annoyed by people that has a problem with choice. I don't question your enthusiasm, why question mine (or lack thereof) as it pertains TO THIS GAME? Grow up bro. Everyone here has an opinion. Expressing a potentially realistic outcome is a part of being a fan. Relax.
