OG Anunoby believes Raptors will win back-to-back titles

The Toronto Raptors just won their first NBA championship, but after a summer in which they lost Kawhi Leonard, expectations for the Raptors have been tempered heading into the 2019-20 campaign.

Of course, that is not going to stop their players from being confident.

As a matter of fact, OG Anunoby thinks Toronto will win it all again:

“I think we’re gonna repeat. We’re a really good team,” said Anunoby, according to Joseph Casciaro of theScore.

Anunoby missed the Raptors’ entire playoff run this past year due to an emergency appendectomy he underwent in April, so he obviously wants to play a significant role in helping Toronto get to the promise land again.

But, based on the age of the Raptors’ best players and the fact that Leonard was clearly their most important piece, it is going to be difficult for Toronto to achieve that type of success again, even in the weak Eastern Conference.

Anunoby played in 67 games this past season, averaging seven points and 2.9 rebounds over 20.2 minutes per game while shooting 45.3 percent from the floor, 33.2 percent from three-point range and 58.1 percent from the free-throw line.

The 22-year-old, who played his collegiate basketball at Indiana University, was originally selected by the Raptors in the first round (23rd pick overall) of the 2017 NBA Draft.

He appeared in 74 contests and made 62 starts during his rookie year, registering 5.9 points and 2.5 boards across 20 minutes a night while making 47.1 percent of his field-goal attempts, 37.1 percent of his long-distance tries and 62.9 percent of his foul shots.
