    Yeah and if i remember correctly they had an insane lease that made it almost impossible for them to make money.

    You never know what could have happened if Vancouver managed to have a couple good seasons. Vancouver also has an insanely huge amount of immigrants that love basketball but never got the chance to cheer on a good team.

    Stu Jackson still manages to eff up the NBA.

    Why do they even have a NBA team in New Orleans?

    Stern should do what he can to get the Hornets moved to Seattle.
    Funny you should say that and if you go here:

    You will find something of interest which came out today.

    While I would love Vancouver to have a team, Seattle appreciated their team a lot more.
    Hate to say it but there are better locations than Vancouver and Seattle. One in particular is Vegas.

    24 (-1) 24/30 Reggie Evans' foot injury is more bad news for a team that lacked a lot and now lacks its best rebounder and strongest inside presence. Now they'll likely get back to more run-and-gun, and if Peja Stojakovic can get healthy and comfortable, that might not be a bad thing.

    21 Toronto Raptors (9-15)
    The Raptors are a respectable 5-6, including wins over Boston and Oklahoma City, since trading starting point guard Jarrett Jack to New Orleans. (The Hornets are 4-8 in that time.) Jose Calderon has flourished in Jack's absence, playing with an efficiency reminiscent of his 2007-08 prime, with 71 assists and 16 turnovers in his last nine games. And with Calderon out with a sore foot the last two games, the tandem of Leandro Barbosa and Jerryd Bayless (the latter acquired in the Jack deal) led the Raptors to 236 points, albeit against the shoddy defenses of Denver and Detroit. Unfortunately, none of the three is a quality defender himself, but Toronto at least now has a more confident floor general in Calderon and two explosive scorers who can push the pace beyond Jack's speed limit

    Default NBA.com, Jan 3/11

    22 Toronto (11-22)
    Pace: 96.7 (8), Off: 103.2 (16), Def: 108.4 (27)
    DeMar DeRozan scored a career-high 37 points in Friday's loss in Houston, but he now has the league's worst raw plus-minus mark. At minus-205, he took the bottom spot from the Cavs' J.J. Hickson on Sunday. The two will go head-to-head in Cleveland this week.

    27 Toronto Raptors (18 - 48) It's time to start thinking lottery chase. The Raptors have 10 of their final 16 on the road where they've won just 5 of 31.

    7-26 since your last post, ugh. Bring on the lottery I guess! I was truly expecting a little more this season, and had they not been bitten by the injury bug so many times I think they would be better.

    The "have nots" standings place the Raptors 5th in the league. With Jersey playing .500 ball lately and the T-Wolves improving I think the Raptors can move into 4th. I don't think they will be able to get into the top three though. Those three teams are just far better at stinking right now. I could be wrong though. Those ten road games could lead to some truly pathetic results if the Raptors don't play their cards right. LOL

    25(26) Raptors 20-49 What is it about the Southwest that agrees with Team Canada? First it was a Dec. 28 shocker in Dallas. Then Sunday's stunner in OKC to give the Raps their first consecutive W's since Games 18 and 19.

    Default 2011/2012 Power Rankings

    Dec 2, 9:56 am EST

    28 Toronto (22-60)
    Pace: 95.4 (12), Off: 103.3 (20), Def: 110.0 (30)
    Dwane Casey will keep the Raptors from being the league's worst defensive team for a third straight year, but Toronto will need more than a coaching change to escape the Atlantic Division basement. They do have to be pleased with the summer of No. 5 pick Jonas Valanciunas(notes), who won't arrive until next fall.

    Over or under on 18 wins?(2010/2011 win % x 66 games)

    It's still early of course, but I'm thinking 16 wins.

    I think 18 is bang on, but they'll have some moral victories in there as well so I took the OVER!

    When the shortened season is taken into account, that's about a 10 game improvement. TO what are you attributing that much improvement without any external additions apart from a new coach?

    I said 15 earlier and they haven't done anything to change my mind about that.

    well everyone sounds like they improved on something during the off season and they will most likely improve on defense as well. So i think they might do ok this year. We lost a lot last year due to injuries

    But where are those wins coming from? Pretty much everyone else in the bottom half improved (or are looking to) other than Charlotte. Did the Raptors improve more than all those other teams?
