    How fun is that...I'll be in Toronto during holiday season. ( xmas ) This is the fucking only time I can get 'vacation' from my uni. Now the best part - Raptors will play only 5 times in December. Fuck NBA. Happy holidays.

    Oh yeah....the schedule. Last year, when the raps were something like 3-9, I predicted them going 4-21. I could do that because I saw the team that we had and I saw the stretch of opponents ahead. This year it's not so easy. The only way this team doesn't get blown up is if they aren't the team we expect. Everything comes together and they exceed. Tough to predict that outcome.
    Overall, not too bad though. The real worst case scenario is having an incredibly soft nov/dec and then be fooled into thinking this team is worth keeping together. Give them an honest test.

    I disagree the basement for this team would 34 wins. I can't see them losing less games than last year. Talent wise this team has been upgraded.
    Well, they were 10-17 with Gay before April last season.

    They absolutely fell apart right when they were about to knock on the playoff door.

    Hopefully the additions to bench and improved play of Ross/Fields changes that.

    Per Ed Kupfer on Twitter, the Raps travel the third-least miles out of all the teams this season. At least that's one bonus.

    Ed is the bomb. Nothing on Facebook. He only uses it to display his current reading list. WWII and Comando fanatic.

    Got some awesome stuff. He made a graph comparing all of the teams, but I can't post it as I'm using the mobile site.

    That's with Gay in and out of the lineup with back spasm. Same with Lowry.

    it means the lakers play 30 games in which the other team had a day of rest (which is the most this season) while the raps play the least

    Seems like another brutal November/December run. 6 games in 9 days right off the bat. Ouch. Lots of tough stretches in there.

    Not quite. By "rest days advantage", I'm pretty sure he is implying "in which the other team had an extra day's rest over their opponent."
    So where the Raptors have had 1 day's rest, their opponent has had 2.
    Or where the Lakers have had 2 day's rest, their opponent has had 3.

    Default the must see most intruging games of the 2013/2014 NBA season

    once again NBA.Com shits on the raptors..
    this article started off like this...
    Narrowing down 1,230 regular-season games to 15 that we’ll categorize as “The Most Intriguing of the 2013-14 Season
    number one was the bulls and the heat, ok that deserves to be on the list what got me goin crazy was that the word toronto/raptors wasn't written once in the article, but when you start scrolling down, you see it in big bold letters BOBCACTS VS ROCKETS wtf is this shit, ok now were down to a bobcat game and they didn't even consider raptor games vs the clips or any other teams
    not to mention there were
    6 heat games
    4 net games
    3 spurs
    3 rocket games
    and two san antonio vs miami games
    i know this was kinda off topic but hey

    I would keep an eye on this early set of November games as being a key stretch:

    Fri 8 @ Indiana
    Sat 9 vs Utah
    Mon 11 @ Houston
    Wed 13 @ Memphis
    Fri 15 vs Chicago
    Sun 17 vs Portland

    Did you read why The Bobcats game got selected? It actually has nothing to do with the Bobcats at all, but merely because its Howards first game with Houston. They could be playing an NBDL team (mind you, Charlotte isn't far off...) and they'd still get the marquee game.
