Here's a preview of the Toronto Raptors season from SportsFan Magazine. We're just mad we didn't think of this ourself.

"So far the Raptors have recouped about 15% of Vince Carter's value since they traded him to New Jersey last winter. The best player they got in the deal, Eric Williams, is a 32 year-old power forward on a team overstocked with big men. They used their 7th pick in the draft on Charlie Villanueva, who looks like a future Eric Williams. I don't remember him being that talented at Connecticut. You know your team is shaky when your point guard used to play on the AND 1 Mix Tape Tour (Rafer Alston a.k.a. Skip to my Lou)

Recalling the top four picks in the 2003 draft, ESPN.com's Bill Simmons wrote that Detroit picking Darko Milicic amongst Lebron James, Carmelo Anthony, Dwayne Wade, and Chris Bosh was like reaching into a hat with three one-thousand dollar bills, a hundred-dollar bill, and a ten-dollar bill and coming out with the tenner. Well, I think Bosh is better than a hundred-dollar bill now. His scoring went up five points per game last season, and the Raptors should give him a max-contract when he's a free agent in July. The team should look to trade Jalen Rose, a veteran swingman, who would be a better fit for a good team willing to give up younger players. Look at Loren Woods, a talented 7-footer who led Arizona to the national championship game in college and has never gotten the minutes to prove himself in the NBA.
Here's something to cheer you up about Toronto. Broken Social Scene released their self-titled third album last week, and it is a brilliant follow-up to You Forgot It In People, cohesive and full of smash hits, unlike the Raptors."
