thought i should start up a thread for all us raptor fans. this is for people to say who they think is doing good or bad, what should be done, and anything else that has to do with the raptors.
After the first game, i think every player played well.
Bargnani showed vast improvement in all of his game.
Bosh looked stronger, but his is still sticking with his new jump shot, he should stay in the low post more.
Hedo isnt looking like an all star, he is just a very good glue player that does a lil of everything.
DeRozan showed energy on defense and that he can get to the rim on offense, he needs to be a cutter on a team full of shooters, will get many easy baskets
Calderon wasnt great but he showed his steady play with a good assist to turnover ratio, his shot was off, but we all no it will get better.
Jack was a pest on defense and switched up the style of play when he went to the point, he pushed the ball and got his team mates easy baskets. with him and calderon on together its a great two headed monster and they dont lose much defensively
Bellinelli impressed me a lot, i thought he was just a spot up shooter with no D. He is a great shooter, but he also drives and/or dishes. And on D he stayed in front of his man pretty well i thought.
Antoine Wright, i didnt no much about him, but he is a defensive stopper, i love it! he will get a lot of PT on a team focussed on offense.
Johnson didnt get much burn but he showed a lot of energy under the basket, but nothing spectacular.
Rasho is Rasho, he plays tough smart D and does his job on offense, never has been flashy but he gets easy baskets by playing smart, like his follow up lay in
Evans was still hurt but i cannot wait to see him play, this team needs a lil more toughness
Also, i like how Triano has these guys playing defense for once, i saw guys rotating and closing in and blocking shots!
tell me what you think about the raptors this year, hopefully we can get this topic going all year long..
