    Honestly, just happy right now. I don't care about the defense or matchups or whatever. I've been watching this team for 18 years and I can count on two fingers the times I've felt like we had a good...

    It's clearly some fake account. Some guy on RealGM always posts these in their post game threads. I assume it's the guy with account or some buddy of his trolling Toronto fans.

    Exactly what I've been saying. Anyone who wants to play the Nets in the first round is delusional. Nets will get every call. Raps won't even be in the series.

    I didn't watch the other games but the Nets got ridiculously lucky last night. Thornton was on fire, Johnson hit a ridiculous prayer, and they got every key call down the stretch.

    It passes the initial smell test in that the rankings don't look absurd (other than the odd unexpected name) but it isn't really clear from the article how it's calculated. Just reading the brief...

    Why stop at Derozan? Why not let Lowry walk, move Amir, let Patterson and Vasquez walk. They'll have tonnes of financial flexibility. They may even be able to get some second round picks in sign and...

    So that in two years we can talk about moving JV and/or Ross to get even more financial flexibility and picks, so that in 2020 the Raps can finally be ready to build a winner starting in 2025.

    It will be hard to keep either guy out of the lineup. I'm more concerned about minutes. If I had more confidence in the head coach I would say bring them back on a minute cap but I doubt it would...

    Great effort tonight. Everyone was good. Lowry injury might be a blessing in disguise if Ross and JV keep picking up the slack. Confidence will be sky high for the playoffs.

    The 2000-2001 team was the best Raptors squad. This team is probably closer to the '99-'00 team, which lost in the first round. I would go:

    1. '00-01
    2. '99-00
    3. '13-'14
    4. '06-'07

    There's a long history of this. If you were around in the 90s you will understand. Internet was the only way to get Raptors news in Canada, so we built up a strong online presence.

    Nice find.

    There is obviously an element of luck to keeping a roster healthy. For example, you can't stop what happened to Lowry with running into Lebron and you can't make Amir stop landing on...

    Raptors finish a very respectable 16-14 against the West and are 20-18 on the road. Since the trade, the team has a winning record against teams at or over 500.

    5-2 would put them in the third seed almost certainly. Net couldn't catch them even if they went 8-0 and the Bulls lose the tiebreak, so they'd need to get 6-1.

    Raps finish 16-14 against the West. Currently 20-18 on the road. Positive numbers to offset the shoddy work against teams over 500.
