Whether people like it or not the Raptors are roughly on the same level as all the Eastern Conference teams except : Orlando, Boston, Chicago, Miami, Atlanta and yes New York.
I feel we can play with the other teams including the fearsome Indiana Pacers lmao. That means that injuries and possible trades or other pickups could be a determining factor.
None of those remaining teams have winning records and it appears very possible that seventh and eighth in the Conference may well be occupied by teams with more wins than losses.
It appears that the acquisition of Amare Stoudemire and Raymond Felton has raised the Knicks above the fray.
The Raptors have some assets and some young players that may help in the future. For those who advocate tanking why do it? I still say the Raptors are not that far away (like the Knicks last year).
Good to see Bargs and Calderon back - they played major roles last night against the Nets.
