These Questions were put forth in the CBS Sports magazine for each team: I will answer the Q yes or No.
Q: Do Kopono and Delfino add the experience the Raptors need to advance?
A: No- let me tell you why-
was Kopono a vital part of the Heat? Yes- was he a leader? No- look at his tenure in Carolina- a good scorer and not much more than that- this is not Thunder Dan or Steve Kerr there people.
Delfino- good player with a good bit of upside- but here's the thing he is 6'6 and not much in Detroit - 5 ppg. He could get on the floor because he can;t play D
They both play Small Forward and both are going to be massive backup minutes- at Small Forward and Shooting Guard- nither is going to do much but allow Bosh to pad is rebounding numbers as Kopono shoots LONG rebound shots. Niether are quick enough to get major minutes to take too much from Parker.

The Raptors could have advanced without these two players. It is just icing on the cake as far as I am concerned. They will win their division this season and will contend in the playoffs.

No I am saying they could still be good without those 2 players but adding them just gives them more experience and they will be better in the playoffs. A #4 or 5 seed without these players. Top 3 with

big Bosh fan- have been since I first saw him- but he is not going to be able to push the Raptors any further than with these two that without them-
BTW- they are still going to be a 3 seed due to the weakness of the atlantic div- They still only had the 4th best record- and I still don;t see them getting better than that- might even slip to 5th best with the improvement of the Magic
