Alright guys, I want you to do a preview of your team, what I mean by that is tell me what went on the off season, the key additions to the team, what do you see happening to your team during the 06-07 season. Also please make an effort to make long and good. Also please don't copy it off another site. Team: Toronto Raptors. The Raptors made a lot of changes this off season. It all started when Brian Colagelo became the new General Manager for the Raptors at seasons end last year. He came with a good reputation. He was the Suns General Manager for a lot of years, and in recent years the Suns had great success. Mr. Colangelo wanted to start is own team, which meant trading players, signing free agents. He basically wanted to start from scratch, but keep a few current players at the same time. It first started when they traded away Matt Bonner and Eric Williams for Rasho Nestorovich, which was a very good trade, because Matt Bonner is only shooter, he cannot do anything else, he has problems rebounding and passing, and dribbling. In Rasho you get a good center that can give you blocks and rebounds. You don't lose much in Eric Williams, because he didn't fit in this team. We also traded away Rafael Araujo for Kris Humprhies, which he has lots of potential, but never had playing time to show it. He's still a work in progress, but I am very happy we did this trade, because at least he has shown signs of becoming a decent player. For the seasons that Araujo has played with the Raptors he has shown no sign of improvement. Now comes the draft as everyone knows we had the first pick overall and with that pick we selected the Italian Andra Bargnani, which he's compared the Dirk Nowitzky. He has a lot of developement to do, which will probably take him a couple of years to do. But they're willing to be patient with this kid, like I've mention he has lots of potential, and if he becomes like Dirk then that will be good news for the franchise itself. With our second pick 35th overall we got a steal in my mind, and other peoples mind, P.J Tucker, he's considered small at is position, but the man is a warrior, he's a tremoundous rebounder, especially on the offensive side, and he can score as well. Very good pick for that spot. Now they had some money to spend, and they concentrated on John Salmons, we had him signed, but then something went wrong so the contract was cancelled. So instead of him we concentrated on Fred Jones, a very explosive player, but never had enough minutes in Indiana to show is potential. He's made to play in a run and gun offense, which the Raptors will be playing next season. Very good addition. They also signed Jorge Garbojosa, a very experience basketball player in Europe, he can shoot, rebound and unlike a lot of players coming from Europe he can defend. We also got a former MVP in the Europe league in Anthony Parker, he has already played in the NBA, but didn't do so good, then went to play in Europe where he excel, and the Raptors gave him a chance, he's going to be a very good player coming off the bench he'll give you a few points and rebounds, and he defends pretty well, very good addition to team. All these new additions will help a lot, in different ways. Now Colangelo knew that he needed a good point guard to run is team, but he knew he couldn't really sign one, so he needed to give a good asset to get one, and that good asset was Charlie Villaneuva, which he had a very good rookie season. The trade was Charlie Villaneuva for T.J Ford, a very good Point Guard. A lot of people say that he's get injured to much, but he almost played a full season last year. He played 70 games. He's arguably the fatest player in the league, and I am sure that he'll help the team. The Raptors also been lacking on point guards for years. Now everyone knows this team will go as far as Chris Bosh will take them, he's entering is fourt year, and each year he has improved. He's a capable 20-10 power forward. He has added a three point shot to is game, which will help him a lot, because not a lot of power forwards will go guard behind that line. We also have Mo Pete, a player who showed great signs last season, and I believe he will improve this season as well. I believe it was a very good thing letting Mike James sign with another team, because he didn't really fit with our team last season, because he mostly played point guard, and shooting guard, and he took all the shots, which is not good, because the ball needs to be in Chris Bosh hands. He will not be missed. I see this team in the Playoffs next season, maybe just making it, but I think they are good enough to make it. So far they've had a great pre season going 7-0. Hopefully this will continue, when it really counts.
