With fans experiencing a major championship in one of the top four major leagues for the first time in decades, many will be wondering if the Raptors have what it takes to repeat as champions.
With the current roster, oddsmakers have the team in the middle of the pack. Some have gone as far as predicting that the team’s win total for the season will be less than the prior 2018-2019 season. However, this doesn’t take into account what President Masai Ujiri has in store ahead of the NBA trade deadline which could be significant with Lowry, Gasol and Ibaka in the final year of their contracts.
ALso with the team not making any big signings in the off-season, some fans may wonder who will emerge as the next star with Leonard opting to sign with the Los Angeles Clippers.
