        Yeah that came from Nick in one of his media interviews. On day 1 he was most impressed by Dalano and Jauncho.
        Not surprising given that those guys know their position isn't secure. Guys like FVV and Siakam would be more measured in how they approach a training camp.

          Yes Nick's quote is a lot more fun for the media than saying our 2 best players looked the best.

            Well he could have talked about any of the other guys but seemed to focus in on Banton. He's the perfect fit for this teams rotation if he can stay consistent. Poor Flynn.

              But I suspect that Banton and Juan probably did look the best? Again, it makes sense cause they are fighting for their careers while the top 10 guys are all getting ready for game 1.

                Both those guys are more in rhythm after coming off international play so makes sense they stood out. We'll see how things go as the others get up to game speed.

                  Yeah the guys with secured positions on the team can ease into it more. It's the other guys that need to have the constant hustle and stand out every time they are out on the floor. This is what Draymond Green alluded to when he chastised Gabe Brown in Rico Run, he wasn't in a position to take it easy (You better believe the Raptors assistant coaches there were evaluating and relaying some things back to Nurse).

                    For what it's worth I think Juancho has a promise for a spot on the line-up.

                      At the moment he has a more secured spot yes but again if he has a bad camp/pre-season and someone else elevates their game to such a degree that you cannot simply cut them than the decision become more complicated. It's Juancho spot to lose as so is Banton, Champagnie & RHJ.

                          • Ok here's what I don't understand, right. I'm watching Sportsnet and Grange is talking about this Raptors "window" and how Siakam and FVV are not that young anymore -- they're already 28. Wait a minute. This whole We The North era started in 2014 against the Brooklyn Nets right? Kyle Lowry at that time was considered a young player. Lowry was 28 in 2014. So he was considered a young player but now Pascal and FVV are old?

                              Your prime is 28-32. Best mix of skill and athleticism.

                                because they are silly (grange and media).


                                The whole notion of timelines and windows was silly when we drafted barnes. it was pushed because some ppl didn't believe in siakam and held onto the bubble performance... they thought siakam had peaked and ignored all context behind his poor production (lockdowns, covid, injuries)
