Thank you for a wonderful season of basketball

People like to talk about what went wrong during the Raptors' first round exit against the Nets.

I prefer to think about everything that went right. We won 47 games this season. Jose Calderon improved his outside shooting. We were clutch in the fourth quarter, like TJ Ford's buzzer beater against the Clippers, or Bargnani's winner against Portland. Chris Bosh put in a three-pointer against C-Webb and the Sixers.

The ball bounced our way this year. Who can forget Eddie Jordan's face when Mo Pete put in that game tying 3-ball in Washington? Or Chris Bosh's half court heave?

We won our first division title. Kris Humphries played 10 times better than Rafael Araujo. Chris Bosh improved his free throw shooting.

Mo Peterson showed a lot of playoff grit. Andrea Bargnani picked it up in games 4, 5, and 6. Chris Bosh gave us a great 4th quarter in game 6. Calderon was a beast.

What went wrong? Nothing! I ain't complaining! Except for one thing: When does the 2007-2008 season start? Thanks Raps, let's do this again next year!
