From a Raptors' perspective, what are you most intrigued about this upcoming year?
For me, it's about what improvement Jamario Moon can bring to the table. His one task in the off-season was to improve on his ball handling skills. Obviously on the whole he had more things to worry about, but if there was one thing, I wanted him to improve his ball-handling skills. Over the course of the season, his jumpshot improved every single month. Another thing to watch out, is his on-ball D and not being aggressive on just about everybody. He needs to recognize the shooters and the penetrators. I can't wait to see his improvements (hopefully) this upcoming season...
I'm intrigued about Jamario Moon, My hope is he will come to training camp like a wild dog on defence. Cause if Moon turns up his entensity this year and becomes more agressive on both sides of the ball, then we could have something special.
That would leave us better than solid at the 1, 3,4,5 spots. Leaving ? marks only at the 2 spot. And its not much of a question mark cause I think AP has 1 more good year left.
The JO/Bosh frontcourt. Not an original answer but it's going to be exciting. The Raptors now have their 2nd best player at a crucial position like C. Hopefully O'Neal was just taking it easy in Indiana and recovering from his injuries.
This isn't what I'm most looking forward too, but since everyone else has covered a lot of other areas, another interesting thing is going to be seeing what type of player Nathan Jawai/Roko Ukic turn out to be. I don't think we should expect too much, but if one of the two impress we will be a much deeper team than we are expecting to be.
I remain extremely interested in the development of Bargs. We are all very tough on him, and it would be nice to see him prove us wrong with a big 3rd year off the bench, maybe even emerge as a 6th man-of-the-year candidate.
