A New Age Has Begun seems like the perfect tag line for today.

With the firing of Sam Mitchell, it is time for a new chapter in the history of the Toronto Raptors. Something epic would be nice. Something with a gripping story that features the fight to overcome evil and at the same time be family friendly.

How about a classic tale of a basketball team that travels (not on the court) through a wardrobe to the land of Bargnania and learn of their destiny to free it with the guidance of a mystical Raptor.

Sounds pretty amazing eh? Now if only the real Raptors can take us to a fantasy land where they can win a game and not look like a giant pile of dino poop.

It is time for Il Muggo to accept his destiny and that is of a warrior who will fight off the evil king and restore the rightful heir to the Divisional throne.

Bargnani has been a nice surprise this season and thankfully even when his shot is off, he is piling up the rebounds and blocks. The addition of bulk, strength and overall understanding of the game has pushed his game a little closer to where we all thought he would be when he was chosen first overall.

There is still a ways to go but with all of the problems going on with the Raps, Bargs is not one of them and hopefully Sam Mitchell getting fired won’t stunt him.

How will the Chronicles of Bargnania end this year? Hard to say with all of the change going on but you can be sure of one thing. This movie will be full of highs, lows and enough drama to keep you coming back for more.
