Fred VanVleet's first season as the Toronto Raptors primary point guard is off to a terrific start. That start has VanVleet thinking big.

"I definitely would like to be an All-Star," said VanVleet. "I want to win all the awards. I want to be All-Defensive ... Those are all goals that I have. The good thing for me is that I probably won't achieve any of those if we aren't a good team or a top team."


While VanVleet has lofty individual goals, he remains focused on the Raptors getting back to their winning ways.

"I'm feeling OK about how we have started as a team and myself personally. I am OK with where I am at, but I could be playing a lot better for myself and to just try and impact the game a little bit more in terms of wins and losses," VanVleet said.

VanVleet is averaging 18.9 points and a career-best 7.2 assists per game, as he's replaced Kyle Lowry as Toronto's primary point guard. He's also leading the NBA in minutes at 38.8 per game. Despite the increased role, VanVleet is also shooting a career-high from the field, while maintaining his solid defensive play.
