Betting against James and the refs in the playoffs is tough mojo.

We can pass CHI BKN DAL.

No shot at SAC ATL ORL MEM PHX unless Booker goes insane to end the season or the Prince / Collins duo takes an in season leap

I'm doing it. The Raps are really deep in addition to being stronger in their front 5. I don't think the Celts get healthy soon enough and the Cavs don't have the defense to stop a team with that depth. This is their year.

I can't pick East team against LeBron, but I do admit the Raptors certainly have readjusted themselves solely to beat Cleveland
If winning matters, the role shouldn't.....the results should.

I want to agree so bad but I just can't until I see these Raps perform come playoff time. With that said I think they are better than the Cavs as currently constructed. Much more balanced team IMO. My only question is do they have a wing defender that can make life hard for Bron in the playoffs. Norman is undersized and OG is still a rookie. Maybe you can stick Ibaka on him?

Is anyone really of the opinion we might move up in the lottery? Those teams are worse...

Raptors are their own worst enemy. These teams have continued to do well because the NBA is sooo atrociously bad right now. Seeds 3-8 in the league are so interchangeable and not in a good way. It means mediocrity...and that makes the non-contending teams atrociously bad.

Silver has a REAL problem in the NBA.
