41 days until home opener vs Pelicans

Checking the Roster the Pelicans have all the guys from the Lakers - Lonzo Ball, Brandon Ingram, JJ Redick? and Zion Williams! That could be a serious team down the road. Maybe even a playoff hurdle?

I expect us to kick their asses. They will go on a few runs, but at end of it, we will have the energy from raising the banner, with the home crowd going nuts. Those guys will be playing their first real game ever together, and they are inexperienced.

Schedule loss, everyone expects and assumes a win, thus the opposite happens.

Pascal blocks Zion, the internet explodes.

Raptors have championship chemistry....Pelicans are a newly constructed team, and these guys will be playing together for the 1st time...sure the Raptors don't have Kawhi but they've already shown they can win without him.

Plus it's a home game for the Raptors, another advantage for them, and it's ring night.

This is going to be must watch if Zion is debuting. Ratings will definitely be high for this one in the States. The Pels have an exciting team this year.

Wow what a short off-season, feels like the championships was just yesterday.

It's going to be nice to be heading into the new season with tempered expectations and knowing that we are the NBA CHAMPIONS!!

I have to agree. I can’t believe the season is just about upon us.

It’s only a short off-season because the Raptors played the last game of the NBA season and the last win of the NBA 2018-2019 season. What a feeling. I’ll take this rather than a long off season that ends in April. Go Raptors!!!
