#24 TJ's PJ's

The best move the Raptor's ever made was one that most people are calling a mistake, trading Charlie Villanueva for TJ Ford. How people could call this a mistake based on talent alone is beyond me. Ford is one of the best young point guards to have come around since back when Kidd and Nash were coming into the league, and the Raps already had 73 people who could play the same position as Chucky.

Beyond that, however, as it turns out TJ actually wants to play in Toronto for the Raptors. Seriously. That's almost unthinkable for a top player in the game. What we're used to around here is people refusing to adhere to their contract once being dealt to Toronto, having to buy out players, and having players want to leave due to not wanting their kids in the Canadian education system.

Instead, this budding superstar had the following to say to reporters on Friday:

I think the winning attitude is definitely going to be here as soon as training camp's started, I think we're definitely going to be a lot better than we were last season. We're young and I think we're going to be energetic and we're going to be entertaining and we're going to have a lot of fun.

I just know it's cold, but I'm really excited to be here. I don't think people really understand how excited I am.

It's my job to come in here and just try to make everybody happy and get everybody involved.

I want to come in and play hard and try to have the city enjoy basketball like it was a couple years ago

Our ultimate goal is to get to the playoffs. We definitely want to surprise a lot of teams and surprise a lot of people.

Forget about basketball, i think that is the longest string of positive words that have ever come out of anyone involved with Toronto sports at any time ever. As a Toronto sports fan, I don't even know how to handle that kind of positivity. It's almost frightening. Refreshing yes, but absolutely frightening.
