  • According to Slam: Raptors among five teams to make a huge jump

    It's just a job. Grass grows, birds fly, waves pound the sand. I beat people up.

    It seems the media is placing a playoff expectation on the Raptors

      It's nice to see some recognition. Anybody with a proper sense really has to realize that the Raptors is a team on the rise.
      I say 42-40 season and a Game 7 loss in the 1st round.

          They refer to it as "BIGGEST IMPROVEMENT" not sure its that big of a Improvement but yes improvement I suppose.

            The article states their 2012-13 projection for the Raptors is 37-45, not exactly setting playoff expectations.

              I think we can win a few more games this season. Obviously T-Ross and JVal will be on the learning curve for the most part but with the roster they have today, and a longer training camp, they seemed primed to sneak more than just a couple wins from top tier teams - maybe not Miami but you never know. Prediction 39-43.

                At least this makes most of the season worth watching. We might still have a "mathematical" possibility well into early April.

                  42-40 in the BEST case scenario would grab the Raptors an eight seed. Which sets up your next statement.. You think the Raptors would take the Heat to seven games in the first round?

                      Our record last season with Bargnani in the line up was 13-18 or 41.9 win %, which equates to 34 wins in an 82 game schedule. 37 wins isn't excatly the "Biggest Improvement". That aside, it's not unreasonble a 6 or 7 game improvement with our new additions

                        You can never really tell. In the 2010-2011 season, the last time they played 82 games, 42-40 was a 6th seed in the East. The 8th seed had a 37-45 record. So 42-40 does not necessarily mean a first round match-up with the defending champs. the Raps are in the East remember? So no, I don't think a 42-40 record would give you a BEST case scenario of #8.

                            Yeah we are in the east, known to be the NBA's weakest conference. But this conference is improving as quick as a gecko.
