    Linas Klieza. I have seen what he can do healthy, and if he stays healthy all year, I think he will be a solid starter at 3. Landry Fields couldn't even get 10 minutes a game for the knocks at the end of last season, what makes you think he can put in 30+ for the raps? Also Ed Davis, I have a feeling this is his breakout year

    JV and Bargnani. I believe this is the make or break year for Bargnani. He needs to be a leader and to lead he needs to do all those things he's hated doing over the years. I hoping he steps up because if he does the team takes a large step forward. He's needs to find his bad side and use it.

    As an avid Raptors fan I am shocked and appalled that Aaron Gray wasn't in the poll. What a disgrace.

    I call for a recount.

    Im with you .. I voted Ross too. Unfortunately . Ive soured on JV (or perhaps more accurately .. i think I have a view of what he will be something like 8-10 pts, 6-8 boards and 5-6 fouls. I think he will be very helpful defensively .. give our team a motor, etc .. but I dont expect to be surprised by him.

    Ross, on the other hand .. could blow me away. He has the tools. Can he put it all together? I really dont know .. but I really like what I see. I hope he eats into DDs and LFs minutes and leaves them in his dust. To me, thats the difference between whether we flounder or make a real playoff push ..
    I would be ecstatic with that.

    i voted terrence ross because he is the biggest question mark. we've seen everyone else play and have a good idea of what they could bring to the table. but ross could do anything from look like a bust to looking like a future star. i want to see why we reached on him

    Lowry, because i love good PG play. But im also looking forward to seeing what big V (don't actually expect much) and Ross do as rookies.

    I guess I'm the only one whos feeling Ed Davis. His off season tweets seemed like he was calling this year major improvement or bust. I think he's putting a lot of pressure on himself. He's also entering his third year, the time we might expect to see him pull it together.

    JV and Lowry should be great also
    Where does Davis get the minutes though? With Bargnani, Valanciunas, Amir and to a lesser extent, Gray, I don't see Casey having many opportunities to showcase Davis (unless Valanciunas and Amir struggle with fouls).

    There's a lot of new faces that will make this season really exciting tho

    Which Raptor do I look forward to ...... for this upcoming Season

    .
    Landry Fields - I see him as having potential to be the Most Improved (or Notable) amongst the gang - assuming he plays 26 - 30 min. What pushes him to the top for me, is that off-court personality - looking forward to some great interviews. As a Raptor fan, we really do need some characters to liven things up - just not in the fashion that Hedo attempted.

    Lowry - He's the wildcard to Raptor success (for me). Would be very impressed (and thankful), if he cracks the top 5 amongst PG's.

    Bargnani - Curiosity killed the cat. Hope it just lets me enjoy having 13 game Andrea, work this kind of magic for 70+ games.

    Jonas - I'm holding off till next season for JV, when I think he could make the big leap.

    .

    Another reason I'm looking forward to watching Lowry which I didn't mention earlier is that he is more of an extension of Casey on the floor than Jose because of his toughness in general and on the defensive end. I think Lowry is the type of player that isn't afraid to get into another player for blowing a defensive assignment, imo. Or another way to put it would be he is the type of player that would command the other players' respect enough that they would listen to what he has to say. Jose might have a bit of the "nice guy" persona to command that kind of respect from his team mates.

    I'm starting to jump on the bandwagon myself. Lowry seems to have the type of competitive personality that (I hope) rubs off on some of our "sleepy" players (i.e. Bargnani, DeRozan, Davis).

    And the fact that he plays the point, and literally sets the tone on both ends of the court, should magnify his effect on this team.
    +1 He made a Houston Team this past season play very aggressive. From the get-go, he set the tone from the start, and the team followed.

    Kyle Lowry. I also could list AB or Val, but I am looking forward to (hoping) Lowry takes this team as his own from game 1, and passes on his demeanor and style of play to the rest of the team. Maybe I have already drank to koolaid but I think he's gonna blow away expectations this year
