    3 of the last 4 teams are the 3 newest franchises (Raps, Grizz, Bobcats), they just don't have the history to be ranked any higher. The Clippers should be the most embarrassed considering they've been around for almost 40 years...

    I swear the last time I saw it we were 26th (ahead of the Wolves), not that it makes much a difference. Feels good not to be last though.

    The Thunder used to be the Sonics, who actually won a Championship.

    As for the list, I don't think it's anything to hate Hollinger for. Every single one of the teams ahead of the Raptors have had more success over the life of their franchise. The Raptors have been out of the first round once. I might argue with Minnesota, but they've been to the Conference Finals, at least, and one of their players was an MVP.

    In fifteen season in the league the Raptos have never won more than 47 games and have finished over .500 only 4 our of the 15 seasons. That record speaks for itself and is not very good.

    In fact last season was sixth best season in franchise history in terms of wins and the team did not even finish at .500

    Can't really argue with the rankings that much - and definitely not with the Raptors place on that list.

    But one day in the future, the Raptors are going to be awesome and all this suffering is going to be worthwhile. (Yes, I'm delusional. I'm a freaking Raps fan... what do you expect?)

    Goes to show that top GMs aren't exactly clamoring to sign with us for the history and tradition of this team.

    Actually you aren't delusional.It's bound to happen that the Raptors will have some form of success in the future. How long will that be?? and will any of us live to see that day is the question here?

    I think he was telling the truth. Memphis and Toronto came in at the same time. Toronto hasn't done much more than the Grizz. Both have been pathetic to mediocre for the most part.

    Toronto's playoff record over the last decade: 11-20

    Memphis' playoff record over the past decade: 0-12

    My question would be how does a six year old franchise with an 0-4 playoff record get ranked higher than The Clips(20-27 playoff record, 36 years old) and Grizz? Hollinger does realize that Michael Jordan doesn't play for the Bobcats... Right?
