  • I'm Holding You To This! : Bragging Rights Edition

    All right all you prognosticators, clairvoyants, and stats junkies. This is your chance to earn achievements, accolades, awards (imaginary), and most importantly establish your credibility with teenagers and bored office drones everywhere.


    1.) Who will be the most improved Raptor? i.e played here last season

    2.) Pick one guy to be moved at the trade deadline.

    3.) What will the season record be?

    4.) Will they make the playoffs?

    5.) What seed will they be?

    6.) How far will they go in the playoffs?

    7.) Who will the Raptors send to the all star game?

    8.) Pick one rotation player that breaks out (guy 1 through 9 on the team)

    9.) Pick one rotation player who falls completely short of expectations

    10.) Will Dwayne Casey be extended?

    11.) How many times will Amir Johnson roll his ankle?

    12.) Who will spend the most time on the bench in a suit due to injury?

    BONUS ROUND

    1.) Surprise mid season pickup?

    2.) Pick one deep bench guy that breaks out (guy 10 - 15)

    3.) If Dwayne Casey is fired, who will replace him?

    You have until the end of the first pre-season game to lock in your predictions. The winner will receive 1lb of chicken wings (your choice of sauce) and 1 pint of beer (pop if you are a minor) at wherever the next RR party is. Feel free to post and edit away for the next six weeks or so

      1.) Who will be the most improved Raptor?

      Jonas Valanciunas

      2.) Pick one guy to be moved at the trade deadline.

      Fields (if anyone can make it happen, it's Masai)

      3.) What will the season record be?

      44-38

      4.) Will they make the playoffs?

      Yes

      5.) What seed will they be?

      7th

      6.) How far will they go in the playoffs?

      First round exit

      7.) Who will the Raptors send to the all star game?

      Rudy Gay. Book it.

      8.) Pick one rotation player that breaks out (guy 1 through 9 on the team)

      Kyle Lowry.. contract year

      9.) Pick one rotation player who falls completely short of expectations

      Terrence Ross

      10.) Will Dwayne Casey be extended?

      Tough to say. No for now

      11.) How many times will Amir Johnson roll his ankle?

      LOL not enough to keep him from missing game time.

      12.) Who will spend the most time on the injured list?

      Kyle Lowry.. hopefully not, however

      BONUS ROUND

      1.) Surprise mid season pickup?

      Aaron Gray, will start playing mid season, so I guess that counts (will update this later)

      2.) Pick one deep bench guy that breaks out (guy 10 - 15)

      Dwight Buyckes, however breaks out comparatively to his current standing, meaning he plays well enough to be guaranteed his money 2014-2015

      3.) If Dwayne Casey is fired, who will replace him?

      Coby Karl (subject to change)

              1. Sweet Baby Jonas
              2. Rudy Gay will be gone by the trade deadline
              3. 27-55
              4. No
              5. 13th

                44 - 38

                4.) Will they make the playoffs?
                Yes

                5.) What seed will they be?
                5th

                6.) How far will they go in the playoffs?
                First round.

                7.) Who will the Raptors send to the all star game?
                If anyone it will be Rudy Gay.

                8.) Pick one rotation player that breaks out (guy 1 through 9 on the team)

                12.) Who will spend the most time on the bench in a suit due to injury?
                Buycks. He's gonna go hard as fuck now that he's finally made it, do too much on one possession and fuck all his shit up. He's gonna rock some nice suits though.

                BONUS ROUND

                1.) Surprise mid season pickup?
                I will also choose Paul Millsap (We have to all work together on this one, hopefully a large enough mass of accumulative energy will make it happen.)

                ACY

                  1.) Who will be the most improved Raptor? i.e played here last season
                  -Jonas Valanciunas.

                  2.) Pick one guy to be moved at the trade deadline.
                  -Aaron Gray...assuming they get a 3rd big body up there. I would say Kyle Lowry, but unless a PG is coming back, I think Ujiri will let him expire and shop for a PG in the offseason.

                  3.) What will the season record be?
                  -44-38

                  4.) Will they make the playoffs?
                  -Yes

                  5.) What seed will they be?
                  -6th or 7th

                  6.) How far will they go in the playoffs?
                  -Lose in the first round

                  7.) Who will the Raptors send to the all star game?
                  -Wow, tough one. My prediction: Jonas, if anybody.

                  8.) Pick one rotation player that breaks out (guy 1 through 9 on the team)
                  -Can I put Buycks here and below for 10-15? I mean, I think he'll break into the top 9, and be a contributor. That's a breakout performance for an undrafted 24 year old rookie from a 2nd tier Euro club.
                  -Otherwise, Hansbrough, who will take advantage of the extra minutes hes bound to get in TO (I would say Jonas, but I already picked him for most improved and all-star).

                  9.) Pick one rotation player who falls completely short of expectations
                  -Tough one because of the word expectations, but I'll go with Ross.

                  10.) Will Dwayne Casey be extended?
                  -Another tough one. Yes, I think.

                  11.) How many times will Amir Johnson roll his ankle?
                  -Shit....8?

                  12.) Who will spend the most time on the bench in a suit due to injury?
                  -Ross. He's just still too skinny.

                  BONUS ROUND

                  1.) Surprise mid season pickup?
                  - Augustin is traded/waived when Buycks wins the backup job full time and they bring Julyan Stone in as the 3rd PG. Not a big move or that surprising, but I may revisit this.

                  2.) Pick one deep bench guy that breaks out (guy 10 - 15)
                  -Buycks (is anyone else as sure to get an opportunity?)

                  3.) If Dwayne Casey is fired, who will replace him?
                  -Bill Bayno

                        8.) Pick one rotation player that breaks out (guy 1 through 9 on the team)
                        Risking here... Don't have that much faith in him, but my guts are telling that it's Buycks
                        9.) Pick one rotation player who falls completely short of expectations
                        TR

                        BONUS ROUND

                        1.) Surprise mid season pickup?
                        Steve Nash


                        2.) Pick one deep bench guy that breaks out (guy 10 - 15)
                        Quincy Acy

                        3.) If Dwayne Casey is fired, who will replace him?
                        Nurse, at least short term
                        That's a really interesting choice. In some ways, Lowry for Nash makes a lot of sense for both teams. *Not sure you mean for Lowry, but yeah, I think that would be the likely case.

                            Yes, thought so because Lakers may try to blow it up during the mid season, if they will keep losing (most likely) as DH is gone and KB will be crippled, so Steve Nash will be useless for them. If KL remains inconsistent injury prone, then these two teams could become potentional trade partners with their expiring contracts. Ujiri may want Nash here because of various reasons.
