    Default Hollingergate

    Right now Hollinger says the Raptors only have a 46.9 chance at making the playoffs... Scandalous! Click the link below, read, become disgusted and then come back here and discuss said disgust.

    At least it predicted us being in the playoffs. and it even gave us a 4.6% at reaching the finals!

    I think the odds are a little higher than this. The schedule is pretty good from here on out. I would have given the Raptors a 0% chance at the finals.

    Do people actually take Hollingers math seriously?

    Wow! I can see the line-ups at the betting windows now! lol

    Lets face it, raps are a mediocre team at this point. If we can get rid of AB for a legit big man, I would put us higher on the list.

    8th sounds about right.

    I find it amusing to make fun of him. I really enjoy it.

    Explain "get rid" to me. Do you mean dump him off for lessor/value talent just to fit the need you determined or do you mean find a good trade for him? Who do you expect in return?
