Kawhi is already beasting despite not playing one year. got them as a league pass team watchlist (Y)



I like what I'm seeing from Ibaka too.


Great decision not to bring him off the bench. He still has some potential in him.

Ibaka is benefiting from playing alongside Siakam more, in my opinion. The Raptors are scary, and if they stay healthy they could give Boston a run for it. They seem to have an identity now, more established roles. I feel like Ibaka was limited/bogged down on the defensive and offensive ends while being on the floor with Jonas last season. Now the floor, and paint specifically has opened up for him. He's shooting a much higher percentage so far this season from 3 FT in, and I feel like that's because he has more room to operate.

And obviously Leonard has a much higher defensive upside than Derozan, so that doesn't hurt.

Seeing Leonard dominate on both ends shows how they are better with him than demar. Toronto lucked out when they were able to trade an average all star for one of the best players in the league

The lose against Celtics was not as discouraging as it looked. Come All-Star break, that OT lineup will have 3 times the chemistry they have now and things might turn up very different during the playoffs.
Also, the fact that they have the best record in mid-November is a nice sight for the sore eyes of a Raptors fan. (Yes, I try not to think about the injuries GSW has or the latest Timberwolves-Sixers trade. I will let future me worry about that).
Siakam is a beast. I'd rather have him starting over Valanciunas. Perfect small ball player.
