stone_576

Spend any amount of time around this year’s Toronto Raptors team and you’ll hear the phrase “15 deep.”

One of the key components of any successful team is depth. Over the course of an 82-game regular season a lot can happen. Thanks to injuries, illness and off-nights, even Mr. Dependable can disappear for a game here or there. Having a solid set of reserves can help weather those bumps and bruises without lasting damage.

Throwback Thursday: Today Was A Good Day

ross-51

February 27th in Raptors history was a good day.
