After posting in a Bargnani-related thread I was lead to a vision of the healthy Raptors squad ... and I did something dangerous ... I believed. We've had our hearts stomped many times, but sometimes you gotta believe.

WHY?

If Jose Calderon and Ed Davis can remain as high performing, valuable starters on our club - our bench unit looks like this:

Kyle Lowry
Terrence Ross
Allan Anderson
Andrea Bargnani
Amir Johnson

Toughness, leadership, offense, hustle, distance shooting, penetration, size, speed ... pretty nasty group to throw at opposing 2nd units.

If the starting crew (all of this assuming Bargs and Val return within the month) of Jose, Demar, Landry, Ed and Jonas can keep the game close - we will have the chance to win a lot of games.

-If no one above us falters, we may not sneak into the playoffs - but there is a chance to make some noise.
