    I'd probably ask them what stuff have they been smoking?

    And possibly if they have enough to share?

    Or do they need help getting into rehab?

    I'd ask them if Lebron's injury was career ending?

    ... and if they customized the jerseys in the NBA2k14 game they're playing.

    I'd have thought it possible.

    Not incredulous, especially considering the hype and weight people were placing on that small surge after we got Rudy gay and "a full season with Rudy" was supposed to make us elite.

    Huh? Never saw anything about the team being elite with Rudy. If anything, people were expecting a .500 team at best.

    Meh I'm not digging up quotes for it, it's not worth it. But there were definitely serious conversations about being third in the east with a full season of Rudy

    Yeah, the the Raptors have surpassed everybody's expectations this season, especially after the trade. At the beginning of the season, I personally saw us fighting for the 6th-8th seed at best. Despite this, I don't believe that we would be in the position we are in today had it not been for the trade. With Rudy and our less talented bench, we would probably be in the same position Cleveland is in right now.

    All the talk leading up to the season was that the lineup of Lowry, DeRozan, Gay, Amir and Jonas was one of the best 5-man units in 2012-13, and how the team played .500 ball.

    Extrapolating that over a full season, leads to ~41 wins, which usually means the 6, 7 or 8 seed in the East.

    Let this be a lesson for all of us regarding small sample sizes.

    Serious conversations by who, people on this forum or people in the know? If you go by this site this team has a chance to be in the finals this year.
