    Interesting. I have to assume this takes into account opponents records going forward .. Not much of a John Hollinger fan, but man I hope he's right. Haha

      I would be honored to get our asses spanked by the Heat in the first round. I hope he is right.

        Oh come on ESPN! It's always the same with those mainstream American guys, no recognition at all! We are going to be 5th or higher, you bastards.

          Guys if we can get into the playoffs with the current squad of which

          DeMar, Ross, Ed, JV, Fields are not even close to their prime... the sky is the limit.

            I am down for a Miami series.



            I can just see ratptor fans now blaming the losses on Casey's in game decisions. (just a credit to Raptor fans, we think our team is always the best)



            ...but I still find it funny that fans ride Casey's coat tails to 3OT against the spurs, and then blame the coaching during the final minute for the loss.

              If we play Miami in the first round...I will consider a 4 - 2 series a moral victory...a 4 - 1 (we eek out one home game on sheer will power) series a likely outcome and a complete sweep even more likely.

                There are always a couple of teams in the Hollinger rankings that are way off - for example the Nuggets are currently the fourth highest ranked team while the Heat are fifth - but this is still good news. I can realistically see the Raps ending up with a better record than the Sixers, however I can't help but feel that the Celtics will get it together during the last third of the season (probably because they've done this every year since they won their championship).

                  You know I am really not trying to be a Negative Ned (or a Debbie Downer for those of the female persuasion) but making the playoffs at the 8th seed with a young squad does not guarantee higher seeds and contender status. This team, as it is right now, is still experiencing a shortage of talent which can only be solved with at least 2 of DD, TR, ED, and JV reaching all-star status. Can it happen? Sure. Would I bet on it? Nope.

                  Still all for taking on the worst contracts in the league for picks. Just because someone gets paid a lot of money doesn't mean they should or have to play **cough**Bargnani**cough**.

                    Like Okafor + pick for Bargnani?

                      Boston without Rondo is complete garbage as we saw in the loss to Sac town. 76ers have hit the wall, they won't get higher than 8th without bynum. So the raptors odd's are high for the 8th seed

                          Okafor + the 5th/6th pick for Bargnani would be a robbery.
