    The Raptors are the Ron Paul of the NBA.
    No that would be the clippers. We're the Santorum of the NBA.

            We would certainly have a better chance at getting some respect if we didn't get completely demolished by a previously winless team. Back to back be damned, we got our asses spanked by a crappy crappy team. This team will get respect once they're consistently good, not after beating some other bad teams like the Cavs. This is a rebuilding year, so don't expect any kind of praise from the american media this year.

                Some love for Bargnani/Casey from ESPN

                Abbot over at ESPN had some nice things to say about Casey and Bargnani:

                On Hardwood Paroxysm, James Herbert has a fascinating conversation with new Raptors coach Dwane Casey. Toronto had the 30th best defense in the NBA last year but is now 16th. No team has improved more, even though the Raptors made few personnel changes and had a short training camp. It's a tribute to the power of coaching, from a coach who has been passed over for job after job.




                Notable is that the Bulls also recently made a huge defensive improvement with a new coach who had been passed over for years, Tom Thibodeau. One of the other teams that improved a lot on defense this year is the Knicks, with that very same Tyson Chandler.

                It's almost like there's a small club of people -- Casey, Chandler and Thibodeau certainly among them -- who really know what works when the other team has the ball. Employing those guys seems to be smart.
