    Why on earth would anyone want the Raptors to be the 8th seed in the playoffs? Are people around here that in love with mediocrity?

    And there's no way the Raptors are better than Milwaukee. Yes, it may take Bogut a while to come back to full strength, but unless people have forgotten, the Raptors appear to have lost Bosh. I'd say it's a wash, and Milwaukee finished 6 games above Toronto last season.

    Philly underperformed last year and added a franchise player, in my opinion, as well as a coach who tends to make an immediate impact. I'd be surprised if they weren't better. Indiana will also likely finish above Toronto with a healthy Granger, and I'm betting at least a couple of trades. The team has a fair bit of talent, they just need to move it around to get the right pieces.

    I also wouldn't be shocked to see New York ahead of Toronto, depending on what else they do this summer.

    If Colangelo were smart, he would throw out any aspirations of making the playoffs this year and concentrate on rebuilding. Barely making the playoffs would hurt the franchise just as much as Bosh leaving it for nothing.

    Tanking has very negative implications, especially for a franchise that is not currently a desired location. It's the Raptors best interest to do as well as possible and start building a good reputation.

    Here here. Tanking on purpose is BS. No REAL Raptors fan would suggest sacrificing an entire year. Ridiculous.

    It's not that we love mediocrity, it's that nothing is better for the development of young player than getting into the playoffs and actually playing with the bright lights on. Plus wouldn't it be a great sign for our franchise if our core, which is made up of very young players plus Hedo and whichever point guard we keep can make the playoffs. If we make the playoffs in any seed next season, we will become a perennial playoff team and eventually become a contender when everyone hits there stride in three years. Why would we not want to see that?

    Frankly, I think the issue of whether they're going to lose on purpose or not is a moot point. They ARE going to lose, and lose big unless BC has about a half dozen aces up his sleeve.
