What do you think are the top teams that will rise and the top that will fall next season?
It's all answered right here http://nbaprimetime.com/?p=367TEAMS EXPECTED TO FALL
Two Words - Chris Bosh.
Bosh holds the key to the Raptors’ success. The perennial all-star forward has been the driving force and face of the franchise since he entered the league.
Coming into last season, the Raptors were expected to be a formidable contender in the Eastern Conference. With the addition of Hedo Turkoglu, the team expected Bosh to be complimented by great perimeter playmakers. Well, it didn’t go as planned and the Raptors missed the playoff after many projected at least first-round series win.
All signals are pointing to Bosh’s exit from the team and as Bosh goes so go the Raptors. Hedo Turkoglu has also expressed his desire to leave the Raptors. Also, Toronto’s basketball base isn’t strong enough to keep Bosh let alone sign a max-contract free agent. I mean let’s be real. It’s not as sexy as D-Wade in Miami or teaming up with LeBron in New York.
Bosh already has one foot out the door and he’s slowly inching towards the exit.
If things keep going the way they are, Raptors fans can expect a long long season.
