    1.) Who will be the most improved Raptor? i.e played here last season Rudy Gay, JV close second

    2.) Pick one guy to be moved at the trade deadline. DJ Augustin once Buycks owns that backup spot

    3.) What will the season record be? 45-37

    4.) Will they make the playoffs? Yes

    5.) What seed will they be? 6th

    6.) How far will they go in the playoffs? Championship (fuck it I'm going in)

    7.) Who will the Raptors send to the all star game? Rudy

    8.) Pick one rotation player that breaks out (guy 1 through 9 on the team) Buycks!

    9.) Pick one rotation player who falls completely short of expectations DeRozan. He'll be aight though just not a huge improvement, I think JV Rudy and Lowry (contract year) are going to be a hell of an offensive trio

    10.) Will Dwayne Casey be extended? Yes

    11.) How many times will Amir Johnson roll his ankle? Same number of times he gets ejected

    12.) Who will spend the most time on the bench in a suit due to injury? Landry Fields, who'll also have the most commercial airtime

    BONUS ROUND

    1.) Surprise mid season pickup? Kyle Singler

    2.) Pick one deep bench guy that breaks out (guy 10 - 15) Acy!

    3.) If Dwayne Casey is fired, who will replace him? nurrrse

    They have a defensive assistant, and a guy they plucked from Rick Adelman's staff, in Bill Bayno.

    I'm actually surprised I'm the only one who has picked him and not Nurse.
