The Toronto Raptors aren’t the Toronto Raptors of recent vintage. They’re different on the floor, they play a different way, and their talent level, well, it’s not as high as it used to be.

Things change!

Well, some things. The Orlando Magic? They’re still pretty terrible, much as they have been the past several seasons. But they do have two young players who might, one day, start to turn things around for them, in Cole Anthony and Jalen Suggs.

Suggs, of course, was the presumptive favourite to be picked fourth overall in this past summer’s NBA Draft, until the Raptors threw a curveball and selected Scottie Barnes.

Will Suggs attempt to take this supposed snub out on the Raptors tonight? Let’s find out!
