2020-21 Toronto Raptors Guy to Watch: OG Anunoby

Ogugua Anunoby is here to make you mad. Last season he ascended to a starting role with the defending champs and ran with it, improving in nearly every area of his game. He has potential to be one of the best on-ball defenders in the game while he drastically grows his offensive production. He finished the weird 2020 campaign 7th in the league in defensive win shares. He has a court intellect that surprises teams at the worst times, intercepting and deflecting passes and then burning them in transition. A player like Anunoby can cause the kind of mental disruption that quenches an opposing rally. The common misconception after Kawhi left for the Clippers was that the Raptors would take a massive step back, but it allowed for OG’s development. It’s a mistake to overlook what’s going on with the Raptors, who have a core that can compete with anyone. As OG continues to develop, he has a ceiling that could resemble vintage Paul George- a two-way, MVP-caliber player. The “buy low” ship sailed last season on OG, but if you take heed of my advice now, you can watch a potential great player blossom.
