The Raptors will have their heads on a swivel tonight, trying to catch up with star Miami Heat guard Dwyane Wade, ex-mates Jermaine O'Neal under the basket and tricky Jamario Moon at forward.
But Toronto captain Chris Bosh says he'll take a second to exchange plesantries with O'Neal before trying to shut him down.
"It's going to be great to see him," Bosh said. "I haven't seen him since (February's all-star break trade) and we didn't get a chance to talk.
"It's going to be 'hey, good game, what's going on buddy? I'll go at him like it's a regular game, treat him like a regular opponent, then give him a hug and a little sports tap after and wish him good luck.
"I'm sure (the Heat) will match him up on me because I've been getting a lot of the centres lately. With his length and his shot-blocking ability, I'm sure they'll do that."
Top of the Pops
Coach Jay Triano didn't dispute an ESPN report the Raptors have signed Pops Mensah-Bonsu to a contract for the balance of this season. He's a 6-foot-10 forward recently let go by the San Antonio Spurs.
"We've watched quite a few of his games in the (NBA development league)," Triano said. "He's an energy guy. Is he going to come in and change everything dramatically? No, but he'll give us something maybe that we don't have. If I think he can help us now, I'll put him in right away."
