The debate over who will be among the top backcourts this season won't be easily settled, but there aren't any other pairings besides the Toronto Raptors Kyle Lowry and DeMar DeRozan where both guards were top 10 in points, rebounds, assists, steals and minutes at their position last season.

Carroll doesn’t just bring skill to Toronto; he brings relevance

Earlier this week when the news broke that LaMarcus Aldridge was going to meet with the Toronto Raptors as part of his free agency tour, it was easy to scoff at the notion that he would actually consider a pitch from such an off-the-board organization. Toronto, a perenially anonymous franchise playing in an outpost city in a “foreign” country has never been invited to wine...

Toronto Raptors: Trade for Kenneth Faried?

It was a disappointing end to an up-and-down season for the Toronto Raptors.  The Raptors were swept in the first round of the NBA playoffs by the Washington Wizards, despite having home court advantage.  Even though a deep playoff run wasn’t expected by most, it was still a shocking end for a Raptors team that won 49 games. Big changes are likely for Toronto, from the coaching...
