The Toronto Raptors are tipping off there NBA Season in Philidelphia. This is going to be a great game. The New Look Raptors are going to take on the New Look 76ers. Both teams added key additions. The 76ers added Elton Brand and the Raptors added Jermaine O'Neal. This is going to be a great game but we will have to see who is going to develope faster.

Key Matchups:
   

    Key Matchups:PG

  Jose Calderon VS, Andre Miller

VS.
 This is a great Matchup. Jose Calderon has alot of persure on him now that he is the Raptors Starting Point Guard. He did a great job last year as backup but could he take on the role as starting? Andre Miller. If it wasnt for this guy, were would the Philadeplhia 76ers be? He is a great player, althlete and floor general. This is going to be a great matchup. I cannot wait to see the two pg's go at it.

     Key Matchups:PF

     Chris Bosh VS, Elton Brand

VS.
 Ahh. The Philadelphia 76ers acquired Elton Brand during the 2008 Free-Agency. It was a great addition for the sixers after being weak at the PF position. Now the get an All-Star Cailiber PF that is amazing. Plenty of people compare the two. Bosh VS. Brand. But it turns out Bosh is the better player. Altough it is really close I cannot wait to see these two go at it. But I do see Bosh Winning it.

         
      Key Matchups:C

      Jermaine O'Neal VS, Samuel Dalembert

VS.
 Jermaine O'Neal. The Toronto Raptors picked him up in a trade during the off season. Some people liked the trade. Others didnt. Well I liked the trade. It's just a matter of time JO goes to a good team and regains his respect. Although he was injured the man said he is okay. So I believe him. JO Vs Dalembert is going to be a great matchup. But I do thing JO is going to win.


Key Bench Players:


  Key Bench Players: Philadelphia 76ers


 | Louis Williams | 14.3 PPG | 3.0 APG | 2.9 RPG |
 Williams is a key player to this ball squad. He is an amazing young point guard who could really steal the show. For Williams I see 19 Points.

 Key Bench Players: Toronto Raptors


 | Jason Kapono | 15.6 PPG | 2.6 RPG | 0.542 3P% |
 Kapono is going to be key in this game. He has been playing well and I do see a solid game for the Sharp Shooter. About 13 points.
