    I'm afraid a lot of people is going to feel upset with 10/11 Demar's performance. Your hype on him is very high and he needs some more time to develop...

    Bargnani, DeRozan and Kleiza/Barbosa. Though I agree that relying too much on Barbosa may be a mistake as he could be just a rent a player for Toronto.

    I have Bargnani around 20-23 PPG
    I actually think Kleiza could flirt with 15-18 PPG
    The third spot is a toss-up between DeMar and Barbosa in the 14-16 range.

    I agree with some that the scoring will be more balanced with Jack, Jose, Amir and Sonny all in double figures - or very close.

    Amir and DeRozan actually both got mentions in this article talking about most improved candidates:

    Amir @ #4, and DeMar @ #2!!!

    Bargnani will be number one obviously with 20-24ppg
    Johnson will be next with 17-20ppg
    Derozan with 15-18ppg
    You really are optimistic, aren't you?

    But your assuming that DeMar is ready to handle alot of minutes this season. I don't see Triano putting that much pressure on DeRozan this season nor do I think he is up to the task of being relied on just yet. Sure, last season he showed a few glimpses of what we could expect from him a couple years from now, but I don't think DeMar deserves to automatically get 30+ minutes per game just because of his potential and the fact that he'll like start at SG. Barbosa is proven and a veteran. Both things that I think this youthful Raptors team will rely upon this season more than most are giving him credit for.
    If the Raptors were a second or third round playoff team I would agree with you.

    However, they will have to go some just to make the playoffs.

    This is the year that they young guys have to start stepping up with guys like Barbosa filling in to give them a breather. I think anything else would be a big mistake on Triano's part.

    DeRozan, Johnson, Davis and maybe even Weems and Wright should get all the minutes that they can handle. As long as they are playing good or above good they should be on the court.

    If their play can't cut it then it becomes a judgment call as to whether by playing in games the young guys can work through and overcome their problems or whether they can't. If Triano things that they can than they should remain on the court to work through their problems.

    Over relying on Barbosa who could be a rent a player would be a big mistake.

    No way Barbosa takes minutes from DeRozan and DeRozan is not going to play many minutes at the #3.

    He's called to be one of the main offensive weapons in that 10-11 team. He'd easily be in +15 ppg.
    Sure he will.

    Johnson is just as likely to average 20+ a game in 10-11 as Barbosa will average 15+ ppg in 10-11.

    I think you are living in the past.

    No way Barbosa takes minutes from DeRozan and DeRozan is not going to play many minutes at the #3.

    If Barbosa can average 15 + ppg in 10-11 playing around the 20 mpg or less that he will play then the Raptors will win the 10-11 NBA title.

    The only way that Barbosa averages 15 + ppg is if DeRozan gets injured and misses a lot of games due to that injuries or multiple injuries.

    I'm kind of surprised what little regard Raptors fans have for Barbosa's ability to put the ball in the basket. I definitely think Andrea will likely lead this team in scoring, but don't count out Leandro from putting up some big numbers on a consistent basis night in, night out.

    Yeah, I agree. I think a more pressing subject would be who will be the team's top three defenders?
    I think the three biggest Raptor defenders will be:

    Hardcore Raptor Fans
    Colangelo
    Triano

    Hopefully some players will be in the mix, as well.

    Bargs - 20ppg
    DeRozan - 16ppg
    Kleiza - 14ppg
    Weems - 14ppg
    Jack - 12ppg (assuming Jose is dealt)
    Johnson - 10ppg
    Barbosa - 10ppg

    Davis+Anderson+Wright+Alabi+??? - 12ppg

    That totals 108ppg. It's a pretty high estimate but breaking it down like this I can't see it being too much lower. I just think Bargs will get a LOT of attempts and minutes and should be right around 20ppg. Other than him I think minutes will be spread across everyone and we will have a lot of guys averaging double figures, which isn't really a bad thing.

    Now if we could just play a little D maybe we'll win a few this year.

    From my perspective after Bargnani and Derozan there is going to be a whole bunch of guys (Weems, Kleiza, Johnson, Barbosa, Jack) that can take that third spot in scoring or be very close to one another.
