  • Ten Years From Now...

    Just a thread for fun.

    Even though it's been a turbulent season, I really like the mix of personalities that the 2012-13 Raptors have. Where will they be in ten years?

    In 2023, which of the current Raptors do you think is most likely to be:

    - On an NBA coaching staff
    - A fan-favourite on a team in Europe
    - Doing colour commentary for NBC
    - Still playing for the Raptors
    - Working in a non-playing role within the Raptors organization
    - A starter on an NBA team other than the Raptors
    - A successful businessman
    - In prison
    - Living in a van down by the river

        - On an NBA coaching staff : John Lucas III
        - A fan-favourite on a team in Europe: Andrea Bargnani
        - Doing colour commentary for NBC: Landry Fields...this should just be colour commentary in general. Hasn't it been like 15 years since NBC broadcast NBA. You mean ABC?
        - Still playing for the Raptors: Jonas
        - Working in a non-playing role within the Raptors organization: Can I put Magloire here? Hmm....I'll say Jose. Maybe as an ambassador type role, or as a scout over in Spain for them. Or JL3 will be on their coaching staff.
        - A starter on an NBA team other than the Raptors: Split between Demar and Ross. Even if they can play together, hard to imagine it happening for 10 years.
        - A successful businessman: Aaron Gray...I don't know why. Maybe his lack of talent and ability to carve out a niche make me think he'll also make the most of his money.
        - In prison: Nobody...Quincy Acy for assaulting someone on the bball court. (really can't see actual crap happening with these guys unless one gets a DUI or something)
        -Living in a van down by the river: Also nobody....Rasual Butler from last year.
