With the Raptors still just 17-years-old and perennially dealing with an identity crisis, or at least a relevance crisis on the NBA map, many tend to forget the role Toronto played in the history of professional basketball.

After looking like the Knicks might run away with it at one point in the first half, the Raptors turned the tables and ended up cruising to their third straight pre-season win and fourth overall in front of what sounded like an awesome capacity crowd in Montreal.
I maintain, like most of you, that pre-season results mean next to nothing, but this was by far Toronto’s most impressive performance of the exhibition schedule thus far.

By this point, most Raptors fans have come to terms with the fact that this team is aiming to make the playoffs this season. We’re not all in agreement about whether it’s good for the franchise to grab a seventh or eighth seed and then get destroyed in the first round, but that is what the 2012-13 Raptors are realistically aspiring to accomplish.
The Toronto Raptors haven’t been invited to the post-season party since 2008, so it would be kind of nice to end that drought — assuming, of course, that it was a sign of greater things to come in future seasons. However, this off-season has shifted the balance of power in the Eastern Conference in a way that should leave little doubt that the Atlantic Division — you know, the division in which the Raptors reside — is the strongest division in the Conference. Matter of fact, it could very well be the deadliest division in the whole league in 2012-13.

In one of the more anticipated days of the summer for basketball junkies, the NBA announced its’ 2012-2013 schedule on Thursday, and as usual, there are some games that obviously stand out from the rest.
While I doubt the Raptors are featured in many, if any, of those games for the casual NBA fan, we’re here to cater to Raptors fans. And with that, here are the games we think you should circle on the calendar:
