Raptor fans should not get any votes ever. On anything.

Right so we won the title with one top 25 player?

What sense does that make?

Also if we are talking about the 2019-2020 season, why is Durant in the poll at all? He might not even make it back?

Yeah he's a better player than Siakam for winning for sure.

It's also not like the Raps fans voted in Lowry at 7th or 8th or something. We are capable and have the people-power to do it. And we didn't.

Siakam was better than both Mitchell and Booker last season and people are surprised that Siakam is going 23rd.

I personally don't think Siakam is better than Lowry/Paul but that's neither here nor there when thinking it's not justifiable. It is certainly justifiable.

Yeah I'd definitely put Lowry and Paul over Siakam. And I'm a huge Siakam fan.

Last year I think Siakam was more valuable during the regular season and Lowry more valuable during the playoffs.

This coming season it shouldn’t be that close however, age has them going in opposite directions. And the poll is for the coming season.

I dont get how so many people believe in the raptors,they have zero to chance to win it all.

I really want to come back to these results after this year. I love Siakam, but there is no way he's the 23rd best player in the NBA. I'm sorry. You can argue top 40, but top 23? He just isn't.

Lowry is the smartest and most well rounded player on that board.

The booty always flys under the radar

Lowry, Mitchell

IMO DD still > Siakam for now. Siakam had minimal pressure with Raps lineup last year. There will still be good ball movement for him but lets see how he performs with no alpha on board for a full season

He was 13th in RPM wins last year and he’s improving at an incredibly fast rate as he’s just now learning to be a playmaker at the NBA level after only playing organized basketball for 6 years. He’s an extremely efficient scorer capable of scaling his usage up and a fantastic defender.

I’d take him over Westbrook, Gobert, Towns, Irving, Griffin, Beal, Walker, Doncic, Holiday, and Simmons for the upcoming season. He was a top 25 player last year and this season I expect him to move into the top 15.

The "he just isn't" argument code seems like a code word for, "I don't want to make an argument".

I'm sorry, opinions are subjective mostly. Yours are objectively incorrect however.
