    I agree about the Lowry part.

    I agree about the Johnson, DeRozan, Valanciunas and Ross part as well, although I feel like Valanciunas and Ross have the potential to develop into something special....

    I don't see anything wrong with employing a little strategy. Thinking ahead to the second round would show confidence in the players, and I'm sure they're smart enough to understand the success...

    I'd still prefer to look ahead to the 2nd round, figuring that the Raptors are capable of beating any of their potential 1st round opponents, as long as they play their game with intensity for 48...

    But the 8-man core you loved involved Calderon, Davis and Fields, so there's been a 37.5% turnover since you made your statement.

    The argument against that core was that it would barely make the...

    There's also the question of the Chicago/Charlotte game. Can Charlotte catch Washington for 6th? Does Chicago want 3rd, now that Miami is 2nd?

    If Chicago loses to Charlotte, we get 3rd...

    Oops, I meant 4th. To face Washington as the 5th seed, leaving #3 Chicago & #6 Brooklyn fighting for the opportunity to face #2 Miami.

    haha I hope we wind up 6th and get to face Washington and Indy, to have the 'easiest' path to the ECF and to spite Brooklyn! lol

    Good point. It really doesn't feel like 9 of the 15 players currently on the roster were brought in by MU. Other than Fields, the entire bench was acquired by MU, along with a couple draft picks. ...

    The haul for Bargnani has to be factored in as well.

    Phoenix will likely get some attention as well, for bringing in Dragic and having so much unexpected success (would be top-4 in the EC), while...

    Back when Bargnani, Calderon, Davis and Kleiza were part of the core, Valanciunas & Ross were rookies, and Lowry was newly acquired?

    How can anybody possibly make a statement that having faith in...

    The team that was successful this season, is NOT the team that caused the wave of pro-tank sentiment. That team had Bargnani and Gay, which was obviously blown up quite early into the season, in...

    I think you always go with BPA, but the lower you get in the draft, the more positional need becomes a factor in the overall determination of BPA (age, skill, potential, attitude, etc... are all...

    Whether we have a legit chance against Indy or not, I'd still rather take my chances with them in round #2 than with Miami.

    I understand preferring to face Washington in round #1, but I consider...

    Or let our scrubs lose a game, beat Brooklyn in round #1, matchup against Indy in round #2, and improve our draft positioning by one slot in the process.

    Nothing would be sweeter than pounding...

    Despite the potential impact of the refs, I still think the Raptors could beat Brooklyn in a 7-game series. I'd much rather finish 4th to get the preferred 2nd round matchup against Indy, while also...

    I'd scratch Novak.

    8-man rotation:
    - Lowry
    - DeRozan
    - Ross
    - Johnson
    - Valanciunas
    - Vasquez
    - Salmons

    I hope we see lots of Ross, Fields and Salmons tonight, in an attempt to shut down their wings. I cringe at the thought of DeRozan defending 'Melo, or JR Smith on the perimeter.

    I totally agree. I said the same thing a few pages back, after the Michigan St. game. He's like Bayless minus the ego.
