Player Review: OG Anunoby revealed his importance to the Raptors this season

It’s easy to miss what OG Anunoby is while waiting for what you hope he can be. What he is, as he proved even through a stop-and-start 2021-22, is an extremely good basketball player — one who would make 29 others teams better were he in their employ.

Did he take the All-Star and/or Most Improved Player-like leap he was pegged for ahead of the year by onlookers both in and outside of Toronto? No. His efficiency tailed off on only a touch more usage than he saw during the Tampa season from hell, and injuries capped him at just 48 games played — not exactly the runway needed for a full take-off.
