      Tanking is just not possible at this point imo.

      Like I said in that other thread, we need to win about 27 games to have a "successful" tank. We have 48 games left with 12 being against .500+ teams like this thread says.

      So let's say we trade Lowry right now and lose EVERY SINGLE game remaining against teams above .500.

      17-29.

      Now to only win 27 games. We'd need to go 10-26 against the crappy teams for a total record of 10-38.

      It's just not gonna happen at this point.
      lol we're complaining that the raptors wont be bad enough ahha. Thats new.

        Ok I get the point. Honest mistake. But are you one of those people who sit and wait for someone to make an obvious mistake to get your thrills? Could have still posted something relating to the point of the thread.

        Just saying!

            OP - I'm not sure the Raps, who have only won 50% of their games, stand much of a chance against these fabled 12 teams who can win 500% of their games. That's a tall order.
            Except the Raptors you are seeing right now are the post-Gay trade Raptors and they are well above .500. You basically have to throw out any pre-trade numbers when discussing this team.

                Being a turd without real life consequences is one of the three reasons the Internet exists.

                In all honesty, appreciated the OP. Only 12 games against +.500 teams is crazy. I'm really interested in seeing if the Raps stay focused and keep developing good habits, or if they start to relax and play down to the competition. They need to be firing on all cylinders for the playoffs.

                One advantage is maybe they can pace their minutes a bit and focus on staying healthy. Are they officially good enough to do that?

                  12 games remaining against teams over .500.
                  26 home, 22 away
                  leave their own timezone only 4 times
                  8 back-to-back sets (6 through first 34 games)
                  3 road games against +.600 teams (7 in first 34 games)

                  The schedule shapes up really nicely in a lot of ways. Still need to play the games, but I don't see .667 (32 and 16) being unrealistic.

                    http://espn.go.com/nba/hollinger/playoffodds now 18.4% of making finals an 7.9% of winning championship. Call me crazy but anything is possible. Cause I'm a dreamer baby.

                      Based on the Hollinger scale you linked, the raptors have 100% chance of making the playoffs and 13% chance of making the finals. We have more of a chance of making the finals than Miami and more of a chance of being the champs than Miami does.

                      You never know, and I think it's very unlikely, but teams can make an inspired playoff run and I think these guys just may have it in them

                        the easy schedule seems easier since most of the eastern conference is below .500. What it doesn't tell us is how some of the Eastern conference teams are improving play and making pushes for the playoffs,.. they won't all continue to play sub .500 ball. Still, easier schedule regardless

                          That's actually really funny.. who would've thought. I suppose it's based on randomization though so nobody can attack it

                            Good point, both NYK teams seem to be picking it up, and other teams like Wash and Cleveland could very well improve as the season goes on. nonetheless, I'd rather play them than all but two of the West teams.

                              Ummmm... That chart now indicates we have a 100% chance of making the Playoffs, and a better chance of making the Finals (and winning it all) than MIAMI.
                              WTF.

                              AND they're projecting us to win 50 Games.

                              ADD Sorry just noticed wheazhy beat me to it.
