- edmontonsun.com – Other Sports – No Raptors? No surprise That no Raptors were chosen yesterday for the NBA's all-defensive team shouldn't come as a surprise to anyone who followed closely, or even casually, the misfortunes of the team.

- 2009 NBA Mock Draft Round One 2.0 | Bleacher Report It will be challenging for the Heat to upgrade significantly this summer because it is up against the luxury-tax threshold and wants big 2010 salary-cap space to re-sign Dwyane Wade and another free agent (potentially Chris Bosh or Amare Stoudemire).
- Miami Herald: Heat won’t wait till 2010 to make big move if opportunity arises It will be challenging for the Heat to upgrade significantly this summer because it is up against the luxury-tax threshold and wants big 2010 salary-cap space to re-sign Dwyane Wade and another free agent (potentially Chris Bosh or Amare Stoudemire).

- One night down, predictions on course
- Triano speaks about Lebron’s MVP "He's getting tougher and tougher to make a game plan for," said Toronto Raptors interim head coach Jay Triano. "Ideally you want him to settle for the outside shot, but he can make them. And when he puts his head down and goes to the basket there's nothing you can do, he's elusive, he's athletic and he's so strong when you bump him it doesn't affect him."
- Toronto Sun: Raptors making London stop Five years ago, it was Vince Carter against Allen Iverson.
Now, it's Chris Bosh and Andre Iguodala.
The Toronto Raptors and Philadelphia 76ers will return to the John Labatt Centre in London for the first time since 2004 in an NBA preseason game scheduled for Tuesday, Oct. 6 at 7:30 p.m.
- Dwyane Wade should tell Pat Riley to trade for Chris Bosh Wade knows the core surrounding him isn't nearly good enough to win a championship, and likely isn't even good enough to improve appreciably next season on the 43-39 record it produced this one.
- Miami Heat’s main target: Chris Bosh Remember, the ultimate target is Toronto’s Chris Bosh as a free agent in 2010. The Heat would use Jermaine O’Neal’s $23 million, which comes off the books in 2010, to lure Bosh, who could play center or power forward.
However, if Toronto decides it wants to move Bosh before the summer of 2010 so it isn’t left empty-handed when he leaves, look for Miami to be active. And look for the proposal to be a package including Haslem or Beasley.

That's the mailing address of the Toronto Raptors for all those wanting to send thank-you notes.
Without the Bulls' regular-season-finale collapse to the Raptors, which angered many at the time, the Bulls-Celtics' classic quarterfinal matchup never happens.
