    Default raptors have had the toughest schedule in the east

    Not only have the raptors had the toughest schedule in the east (as Zach Lowe noted), but they are the ONLY team from the eastern conference in the top 16 of that category, sitting at #5. The other 14 teams in the east occupy the bottom fourteen positions of average opponent winning %.

    That's why their Power Ranking is #10 in the league, good for #3 in the East. Also, their schedule gets INCREDIBLY soft after their Tuesday night game in Indiana: http://espn.go.com/nba/team/schedule...oronto-raptors
    where only two of their subsequent thirteen games are against teams with winning records: the Clippers, and the Mavericks, who we just beat.

    For those few who still think losing is the way forward, the month of January might be difficult for you to watch.

    That is impressive stuff... really is.

    Raptors biggest problem the last few years has not been getting up for the good teams. It has been playing down to the mediocre to bad teams.

    I am excited to see how everything pans out this year.

    Most interesting year of Raptor ball since 2009-2010.

    I love how Nosike/Xixak raved about putting me on the ignore list yet continues to reply passive aggressively with no quotes!

    Priceless.

    Raps are heading for the top of the world. It is really effing amazing how fast things can change when a good owner replaces a bad one.
    I think they have a GREAT chance of grabbing the Stanley Cup this year. That will make sports fans in Canada sit up and take notice!

    It is up to DC to prevent that this year.

    and on the flipside, it doesn't take much to go the other way either. remember that little win streak we had last year that got them into a potential playoff outlook? only then to lose to milwaukee and a bunch of other shitty teams which ended that dream early.
