The flashes of brilliance seen by many of the Raptors players has fans feeling ecstatic despite the team losing 60 games. The Toronto team is oozing with potential but they're still very raw and premature.
There isn't a player in the league who doesn't have room to improve: Lebron needs to find his killer instinct, Kobe and Tim Duncan need to get younger, but the young legs of Blake Griffin and Kevin Love need more time to grow.
Each of the young stars on the Raptors Roster should work hard to improve and take advantage of this lockout. While some players might get out-of-shape with the possibility of an extended vacation this year and without a real training camp, Raptors players could do themselves a big favor and find their poise for next season.
Here I will suggest areas which I feel Raptors players should try to improve on, and I warn you my ideas are not the conventional impulse thinking we're used to hearing. Sometimes certain players are very good in one area but not great, but people want them to be something they cannot be instead of motivating them to excel doing what they do best. One over-magnified flaw in their game could turn a player away from doing what got them into the league, and usually critics are not pleased even if they show some improvement.
