Reasons To Look Forward To The Coming NBA Season: 2010 Vince Carter & Tracy McGrady?
They're probably not as gifted as the Florida born cousins, but Sonny Weems and DeMar DeRozan both seem to have the desire to bring back the show that's been absent since the dinos were purple.
The Raptors finished the Summer League with a 5-0 record, and both Weems and DeRozan played extremely well. Sure it was against a bunch of castoffs and rookies, but I'm hoping the confidence they showed will carry forward to training camp and the regular season. With the departure of Chris Bosh, Colangelo seems to be moving forward with his plans to create a younger more athletic team. If these kids are willing to become the focal point of the offence -taking it away from Andrea Bargnani - I'm all for it.
With the Eastern Conference continuing to become more competitive, a number of Sportscenter highlight dunks may be the most we can ask for this season.
