The Toronto Raptors were awarded the first pack of the 2006 NBA draft last night in the publicized NBA Lottery. The lowly Raptors are coming off a 27-55 season and more importantly have not been decent since Vince Carter left Toronto. The first pick in the draft will allow new general manager Bryan Colangelo a plethora of options from trading down to get two players, trading for a marquee player or going after the player they think is the best in the draft. The Raptors do have some good young players to build around including Chris Bosh, Charlie Villanueva and Joey Graham. I hope things get rolling in Toronto soon or else Canada will be without any professional basketball!
