    Default On pace for the best record.

    This Raptor team is on pace for the best record in Team History and we have T-Ross and Val 2 sophomores who barely played last year, plus a 24 year old All-Star in DeMar, plus Amir (who I think might restructure) plus 24 year old 2Pat who most likely will come back. Lowry is a wild card of course but I believe we can pay him and give him what he wants, a chance to run an offence his style like he has been doing this year. Hansbro, and everyone else (minus Hayes and Salmons)

    We are 3rd seed in the East and the 3rd youngest team @ 26.3 years in a playoff spot (1. Houston and 2. Portland).

    WarLordMasai at the helm I don't see anything but sunny skies and more wins ahead. If we can be 9 games above .500 right now this year with this roster, there is no ceiling to what this team could reach in the coming years.

    Thoughts?

    I'd consider it a championship if we beat Indiana or Miami in the 2nd round

    If we get Patman back, and can stay healthy, I can see us getting 48 wins. Regardless, I'm enjoying all of this good fortune. So excited for these guys to get some playoff experience under their belts!

    The raptors based on how talented they are and how they are currently playing should get 48 wins. However, I'm still not convinced they'll get there. Fingers crossed though!

    Knicks were a 54 win team last year.

    Masai's 2012 nuggets with 57 wins has turned into a losing team this year.

    I see the raps winning at least 11 of their final 18 games.. We have a pretty easy schedule with facing only a couple playoff teams so I definitely think we can have a franchise record this year.

    knicks - just saying they didn't have a major overhaul in players or coach and somehow completely dropped the ball this season.

    as for nuggets, theres no guarantee that lowry or patterson will be here next year. salmons will most likely be gone. vasquez has stated he wouldn't mind heading back to the kings as i'm sure he knows they probably won't be able to keep isiah thomas and may be a starter over there.

    I think they need to add another all star via free agency (and keep Lowry). That would get them to a point where they could expect to win 50+ games each year and contend. Common sense would suggest that they are overachieving right now -- freakish health, contract years, more than ever stinker games in the East schedule.
