On the eve of 2010 and with only 49 games left for the Toronto Raptors, what New Years Resolutions will they be making (fans hope):

10)  Beat Boston

In the first game of 2010 the Raptors will face the Celtics minus Garnett and Pierce!!!  Beat'em when they're down.  That's what I'm saying!

9)  Be better than .500

The time for gelling is long past.  Either the Raptors have gelled or they are Jello!

8)  Bargnani bests eight boards per game in 2010.

The big "B" is averaging a career high in boards this season but the fans want more.  Time for the beast in Bargnani to make his appearance.

7)  Big Commitment from Bosh

Enough of this making everyone wait. Fans need to know if Bosh wants to stay or go!

6)  Be on US National TV

Raptors have toiled for long enough in obscurity. Make TNT and NBA-TV bring a Raptors team back to the national scene. And make Rick Kamala learn how to pronounce Toronto.

5)  Reggie Evans Plays

It's time fans saw the Raptors toughest player on the floor.  The return of the (Raptors) Joker!

4)  Jose Calderon Returns to 07-08 form

An apparent minor injury has kept the Raptors starting point guard out for a month.  It's time to get the Raptors leading passer and best shooter back on the floor and playing at the level we all remember him playing at.  And no Jackerons!

3)  MLSE Agrees to Spend to Win.

Whether it's offering Bosh a max contract or making the trade that puts the Raptors into luxury tax territory.  Fans want MLSE to do what it takes to bring a winner to Toronto.  And that's no joke!

2)  No More Injuries

Bosh, Turkoglu, Bargnani, Calderon, and Jack must resolve to play the rest of the way!

1)  Make the Playoffs

In 2010, no resolution can be more important than making the playoffs this season.  This ain't no rebuilding year!
