A New Era of Toronto Raptors Basketball

Welcome to a new era of Toronto Raptors basketball.  Starting tonight, this is no longer a Chris Bosh team, this is a Toronto Raptors franchise that is scrambling for a new identity.  This is a team that is projected to barely reach 30 wins and will be a basement team in the East. So with that said, the franchise has to turn somewhere to put people in the seats at the Air Canada Centre. 

The Raptors now have to pick up the pieces and rebuild with youth.  So who's been selected to entertain Raptors fans this season?  We have Amir Johnson, DeMar DeRozan and Sonny Weems, aka The Young Onez.  While they aren't superstar material, they are leading this team into a new direction.  Expectations for this team are low, so let's hope the Young Onez can help re-brand this franchise into something entertaining.

The Perfect Hedo Turkoglu Heckle

I think the best heckles come when there is a lull in the crowd and when the crowd is a bit sparse.  Case in point, at a Raptors preseason game against the Suns, take a listen as one fan just rips into Hedo at the ACC.

The summer's over...Chris Bosh has left the building...and we walk into a new chapter of this Raptors organization. And who's the face of the franchise is 2010-2011? The Young Gun, DeMar DeRozan. And judging from this video, DeMar has been putting in work. Let's hope for a huge sophomore season from DeMar.
