    Let's be honest, the team now is CLEARLY better suited to make the playoffs compared to the 09-10' season. A dysfunctional Turkoglu, not a first option Chris Bosh, Andrea Bargnani who clearly is Andrea Bargnani, inconsistency from the point guard spot, Sonny Weems was our starting shooting guard. Other than Derozan (rookie year), one of Antoine Wright/Marco Bellinelli was our best player off the bench. Goodness, we at least have a plan moving forward.
    +1

    Looking forward to next season with this team (and AB's replacement. if BC can work some magic) after an off-season of work for Ross and JV.

    For some reason, I have a gut feeling that this will end exactly like that season when the 8th spot was stolen from us. Man, I still remember how much that sucked...

    My heart says playoffs, brain says nope.

    It is a very strong possibility.

    I was worried about the MEM/NYK games. In my mind I was thinking best case scenario is a split.

    The fact the Raps came back after all-star break behind 6 games with 29 games left to play and they have played just 3 games and are now 4 games back gives me hope.

    The two games vs. Milwaukee are going to be HUUUUUUUUGE! Point received?

    Also, despite all the bad luck raps have had this year, they got a little bit of good with both BKN games and the ATL game. 3 very close losses.

    Anyone's willing to make a bet that we won't reach PO? Not trying to be rude, just for additional enternainment reasons.

    What kills me with this whole season is that if we would have started ANY better than 4-19 we would be in a much better position....even 6-17 or 7-16 and we would find ourselves 1 or 2 games back today
    The blown 20-point lead games after the 4-19 start hurt too... especially considering they were against Milwaukee and Philadelphia.

    But if we started the season a lot better we wouldnt had.traded for Gay, additional 2/3 wins would be nice though

    I would be happy with anything from 10-16 (15/16 means playoffs, 10-14 means low pick for OKC). Toronto is not only battling for 8th in the East but 14th among all teams in the NBA (Western Conference included). Although I don't see them getting 9th in the East and 14th in the NBA considering the West > East.

    Right now they are 10th worst in the league, and only 1/2 game from 11th worst (Philly). But they are only 1 game from 9th worst (Minnesota).

    This is the anti-tank.. much funner than tank-watch.

    I wouldn't bet on it happening, nor would I bet against it (can you tell I'm not much a betting kinda guy? haha) but I've always maintained that finishing 14th from the bottom, and therefore surrendering the 14th pick for Kyle Lowry, AND getting future picks back in play for trades, is a pretty desirable outcome in itself. There are positives to either outcome.

    Anyway back to the topic at hand haha (it's funny how this turned into a hating bargs thread)

    I watched the bucks play last night and they're not good. Simple as that. On top of that they have issues with jennings and last night they were deferring to redick to make him feel comfortable (let's hope that continues).

    We were almost as good before the gay trade and as long as we play the way we should we can beat them.

    We still need some luck to get in, but this will come down to one or two games here and there. They are not good enough to finish at or above 500
    lol

    Win or lose it all comes back to you know who.
