    Guys there's two things I wanted to say.
    1) if we fucking vs the bulls in the 2nd round that's absolute horse shit and I REALLY hope that doesn't happen , but I have a great feeling that it will work out someway like that.

    2) as many people around me have said .. We anticipate Masai making some type of move really soon.. We need a rebounding/shot blocking machine. I'm not so good with keeping up with prospects but a few things are certain . We're ranked 1 in the east, we have the best fans in the league and the players are like rock stars here, and the east is not as competitive as the west.
    Who wouldn't want to come play here? We are so close to being championship contenders, I'd say one piece away and that's it ..

    If the playoffs were to start today, we'd face the Bulls in the second round which would be sad beans for us.
    Yeah, but it would also most likely mean that D. Rose has played a minimum of 4 straight games against some other team. The way Chicago has been resting him probably means he would be less than 100% going into a match up against Toronto. They rise and fall based on D. Rose's health.

    Not really. Toronto is a move away. Picking up a vet big who rebounds and plays d for a pick would be big... I think mu grabs Garnett to be honest

    Pretty surprised by the Poll results so far .. 100% of people don't think we'll make the Finals.
    Because that's not what the Raptors do. That's what people are thinking.

    Ah, they must've taken it down for a new poll... With a Lebron picture. Lol Those always get a lot of hits.

    I think we can definitely make the Conference Finals.

    Haven't said that about a sports team I like since the Canucks in 2011.

    I'm not writing off Cleveland until they officially implode, though. Even now, their struggles and all the bad press are after playing .500 ball for 10 games. A couple bad losses, but if rock bottom is a 10 game .500 stretch then things are not that bad. We'll see.
    From what I have seen, it seems like Lebron is coasting out there for much of the game. In the Orlando game recently, he did little until the fourth, at which point they crushed the Magic, so i'd still be scared. I bet their roster looks different by playoffs too, they need rim protection.

    I can't help but think the Bulls will wear out come playoff time. Butler is playing over 40 minutes a game. Pau is playing 35 minutes per game, and hasn't seen that number since 2011-12.

    If Pau plays the majority of their games, I worry about him come playoff time.

    So far, I'd say we'd be solid underdogs against only Chicago, 60-40 to win a series against the Cavs, Hawks and Wizards and overwhelming favorites against the rest of the East.

    To me, that puts the Raps as favourites to get to the ECF with a lot depending on when they hit the Bulls.
