    Default Hollinger's projected 33 Wins

    How many Wins do you see Raps finishing the Season with? Will they pass 33 Wins just for a moral victory or will they fall short?

    Im predicting a 34-38W ending, a lot of teams will start relaxing having clinched a spot (Bulls, Atlanta, Boston)

    ...We only get to play 72 games?! Lol

    Hmm 33 sounds about bang on actually. Maybe we get 34-35. Depends how Rudy's feeling.

    Yes, because what kind of fan expects his team to lose? (even the stingiest of you still believe enough to hope for your team)

    Well with all the pessimism that goes on around Raptor Land wanted to see what everyone was thinking, pleasingly surprised fans believe the Raps pass 33

    Punch me in the face.

    Why does being a Raptor fan have to mimic torture so closely?

    33 wins still requires finishing 8-10.

    Ugh.

    I hope BC gets a 1st rd draft pick on draft night while shedding Bargnani. That will be the only way I call the NBA calendar year 2012-13 a success.

    Trey Burke? Yes please!

    Now that Bargnani may be out long term again, I predict an 18 - 0 run to finish the season along with 7th place in the east

    Pretty sure he meant 34 to 38 wins, not a 34-38 record

    I honestly believe we can pass 33 wins this year.. it'll be tough..but towards the end of the season teams who have clinched a playoff spot start easing up and mess around with rotations and player development..of course they dont want to risk injuries to players who will be needed in the playoffs.. the raps still have a problem with offensive set plays, terribly weak at shooting 3's.. we are still so iso heavy. so it will be interesting to see what the raps can do..we definitely need to work on our rooks and make sure they play heavy minutes so they can progress. good luck raps.

    At this very point, it looks like Hollinger was a bit too generous. #Clown

    More circumstantial and coincidental evidence to support the Bargnani effect.

    The way the raps have been playing lately, with Lowry seemingly doing more, Amir being a BEAST consistently, and JV coming along nicely, I think the raps can go .500 the rest of the way, which has them end up with 34 wins, so hollinger's prediction of 33 seems just about right.

    Naw,,, some can let it go, even when someone's hissy fit lasts days/weeks/months. Amusing in a twisted way.
