It’s a season where the expectations are low for the Toronto Raptors. Many fans are looking at this campaign as a ‘let’s play for a draft pick’ type of season, but don’t tell that to new head coach Dwane Casey or any of the players, particularly a number of veteran players that have been brought in with something to prove. Toronto is a place that loves its blue-collar-type athletes, in any sport. If this team plays the way Casey would like to, they will win fans over regardless of the results.
