I know many of us aren't feeling to good about the Raptors right now (and with good reason). I was hoping we could post some positives here. From the break through the Knicks game the Raps have the leagues eight best defense. Remarkable progress from the historically poor defense of the last couple years. With a full training camp, a young shot-blocking centre and with luck the addition of a talented young perimeter defender through the draft the Raps could be a force to be reckoned with on one half of the court next year.
