The NBA is currently in a lockout, and if there were no NBA season (and it seems like there will not be one), the Raptors will benefit greatly. Despite not playing professional basketball, the players have a chance to improve what they are not good at individually.
DeMar DeRozan will have a chance to improve his shooting, which could make him the NBA's next premier scorer, James Johnson can work on his offensive game and Jerryd Bayless can become a better passer.
This also benefits the Raptors because this means that the team will get the third overall pick in the 2012 NBA draft, which is stacked with small forwards.
This slideshow will showcase who I personally believe will be in the Raptor's starting spots.
