The Raptors are Confident

by October 28, 2009

Most “experts” don’t see them making a lot of noise this season, but Hedo and company aren’t swayed: “While players were asked yesterday for predictions on the coming season, which begins tonight for the Raptors at the Air Canada Centre against the LeBron James-led Cleveland Cavaliers, Turkoglu suggested that anyone who believes his club will not succeed is misinformed. ‘We are as good as anybody out there right now,’ said Turkoglu, whom GM Bryan Colangelo brought over from the Orlando Magic in July. “We don’t get a lot of credit, even to make the playoffs. But we really don’t care. I’m very confident about myself and my teammates.’ Perhaps it’s Turkoglu who is wearing the rose-coloured contact lenses.”
