Where to go from here, Raptors? Bosh is gone, the East is stacked and frankly, things look grim for you.
Okay, Toronto, you need to replace the current Raptors with actual raptors. Here's how to pull this off.
In the 90's, this crazy, rich scientist decided that he was going to try and breed dinosaurs by combining dinosaur DNA from crystallized bugs and the blood of frogs. He did it, and dinosaurs made a massive comeback, specifically raptors. Raptors proved to be the best of all dinosaurs throughout the 90's and 00's on three separate and notable occasions. Even besting their larger, and stronger rival, the T-Rex.
Impressively, raptors eventually learned how to communicate with one another making it easy for packs of raptors to hunt and kill in an organized and effective manner.
These very raptors were last seen on Isla Sorna in 2001. I am sure they are still prevalent, speaking raptor language and hunting and killing very efficiently.
Raptors would serve as great replacements for some of the current Raptors. Athletic and difficult to guard, raptors could bring new life to you, Raptors.
Raptors, consider capturing five raptors and training them to be Raptors. They can talk, you know?
