  • Who Breaks Out This Season?

    The last few seasons have seen Raptors rookies/young players break out during the season. Norman Powell a couple of years ago. Fred VanVleet last year. Who is the most likely to this year? The popular pick is probably Siakim, based on pickup game highlights. But that same video footage has shown Brown looking deadly from three, and Norm looks to be back on track. So what are the odds one of these three make a leap, or us some one else going to come out of left field and get the fan base all riled up?

    I really hope Norm gets back to his old form. We need production for that salary of his.

    Raptors: Larry O'Brien

        I really think that Leonard guy will play way better for the Raptors than he's played for the Raptors in the past.

        JV is a good guess for a jump in numbers. I'd say the guy with the easiest path to breaking out is Siakam. If he can shoot this year, look out (specifically, look out Serge). Big if though. Could see Wright have a big year too if the new aggressive defence plays to his strengths more.

        Brown is basically dead last on every list.

          I can't believe Brown is still here. He seems like the generic point guard in a video game. "A. Brown, 6 ft, medium dark tone, head band. 55 rating in every category" just a default 4th string point guard (although in the old days he would have been backup. Skip to my lou was once starter.. wow

            SiakAm is my pick. Especially if Ibaka regresses even more.

              I think Wright is going to have a huge season; he's going to get a lot of playing time at the 2, And any combination of him, OG and Siakam is going to be a nightmare for opposing offenses.

                I think Norm re-breaks out this season. It was like he forgot how to play last year and every dram of confidence he had in himself went south too. He has had the summer to mentally regroup and Nurse has confidence there is a good player in there. Guy has all the tools. Think he gets back on the rails this year ...along with Delon Wright. He showed well last year and he is a year older and stronger.

                Siakam to win.
                Wright to place.
                Powell to show.

                  I would like OG to have a breakout season. It will give us insurance if Kawhi leaves and raise our ceiling.

                    I'm going with OG, FVV and Monroe, in that order.

                      Siakam takes the leap.

                      All of Siakam, OG, Delon, and JV get more opportunity than they have in the past and up production just for that fact alone, FVV is steady and plays a key role like last year, but it's Siakam who makes the biggest developmental leap.

                          Going to go with JV as well. I just think Nurse is going to unleash the beast. JV will be a dark horse candidate for MIP.

                            Siakam stands to have a great year, and will build up on what he improved upon last year already (passing, handles, plays at the rim, and defence), but a lot of it will come down to his 3pt shot.

                            If he reaches and sustains 36%+, I'd say he will likely be the MIP on this team. If not, someone else could take a bigger leap, including Wright and JV.

                            If Norm simply returns to his natural form, he would be the team MIP (simply because the drop-off last year from the year prior was so big), but unfortunately for him, there likely won't be enough minutes on this team for him to do that. So I think it will come down to Siakam/Wright/JV.

                              With all the talk, I would have to think JV. He'll get mad playing time under Nurse, with an emphasis on him as a centrepoint offensively.

                              After that, I'd have to think it's between Siakam and OG. Siakam more likely, because he's further along development-wise than OG, and he'll be on a lineup without Lowry/Leonard.

                              With Siakam likely playing alongside VanVleet-Wright-Powell/Miles-Ibaka/Monroe, he'll have the touches and liberty to create.
