I’m one of those rarest of commodities: An eternally optimistic Raptors fan. Even since first coming to Toronto in 2006 and going to the majority of home games during the 2006/07 campaign, I’ve been hooked.
(In my mind, the Raptors are still that same team, which finished with a franchise record-equalling 47 wins and clinched their first ever divisional title. Feel free to analyse that as you see appropriate.)
As such, I’ll admit I’m probably just a little bit too excited about the release of the NBA regular season schedule, which will be announced tomorrow evening at 6:00pm ET. And videos like this don’t help:
How can that not get you pumped for the new season?! Despite what the majority of media experts may believe, no one knows for sure how the 2013/14 season will pan out for the Raptors.
Let’s just say, whatever’s coming, I’ll happily take my chances with the likes of Jonas Valanciunas, Amir Johnson and Rudy Gay.
Editors note: This now concludes Paul’s latest Raptors propaganda offering.
