About history repeating itself?
- New GM comes in in 06-07 (BC, now Ujiri)
- Raptors have franchise-best regular season
- Raptors make playoffs with high seed
- Raptors lose in first round to the Nets
It really does look like we're going to play the Nets in the first-round (4 vs. 5), which in my opinion is the worst matchup we could get aside from Indiana or Miami. If we lose that series, then this season is kind of a dud...
The positive difference between this year and 2006-07 is that our entire starting lineup is quite young. In 06-07 we had 3 starters in/approaching their 30s (Garbajosa, Parker, Rasho), whereas now we have 3 under 25 and the other two are just hitting their primes. Still it's a little concerning.
