    Default How many wins for the 2011-2012 Toronto Raptors

    Now that the roster has been finalized, it is time to make your vote on the number of wins we can expect from the Toronto Raptors.

    Here is our roster:

    PG: Calderon, Bayless, Carter
    SG: DeRozan, Barbosa, Butler
    SF: J.Johnson, Forbes, Kleiza
    PF: Bargnani, Davis, Amir
    C: Gray, Magloire, Alabi


    Remember, we have a 66 game - not 82 - therefore (numbers rounded to whole numbers):

    66 game schedule = 82 game schedule

    10 wins or less = 12 wins or less
    11-14 wins = 13-17 wins
    15-18 wins = 18-22 wins
    19-21 wins = 23-26 wins
    22-24 wins = 27-30 wins
    25-27 wins = 31-33 wins
    28-30 wins = 34-37 wins
    31-33 wins = 38-41 wins
    34 or more = 42 or more

    I predicted 15 wins a week and I haven't changed my mind. Of course, considering how my predictions the last couple of years went, it's going to be less than that. Still, that's what I'm sticking to. Hopefully low enough to get the top pick.

    Dwayne Casey better be careful that the Raptors don't overachieve and somehow make the playoffs. He could get fired.

    If they make the playoffs with this team, then Casey deserves a raise. And the Raptors will finally have an All-Star again.

    Just because we make the playoffs doesn't mean it's a given that we'll have an All-Star.

    Take last season for example: Who was the All-Star on the Indiana Pacers?

    One year of maturity/experience, more veteran leadership, more defensive accountability which will lead to a few more stops, more experienced depth on the bench. I'm sticking with my 25 wins and 41 losses record.

    For preseason I think they will go 0-2.

    Well, although he wasn't an All Star last year, Danny Granger is their All-Star. Besides, the Pacers were a much deeper and more veteran team than the Raptors, so my thinking is that is the Raptors make the playoffs, it's because someone has suddenly become an All-Star. Otherwise the talent level is simply not there.

    Wow Tim, and I thought 3-in a row games were going to be hell, but more than 2-a-day games!!? The young legs of the Raps must be why you think they will take 15 wins a week!

    I am about 19wins on prediction for the season, most of this coming from the coaching change, minor amounts from improved players.

    What can I say, SuperRaptor had a very persuasive argument. The Raptors are STACKED!

    i dunno. we won 22 last year but were pretty close in quite a few of them. theres no reason not to believe guys like derozen/jj/ed/amir and even bargs won't be better this year. throw in a new coach and the team finally playing some defense (how much we'll see) and i think mid 20's is a good number.

    the mixture of youth getting better and guys on 1 year deals trying to market themselves is pretty enticing. our bench is probably the best its been in recent years.

    I agree with what you say about our bench.

    I chose 15-18 but who knows.

    It's possible that with the back-to-back-to-backs that every team has, that the Raptors could sneak away with a few extra wins since if a team were going to rest their starters against anyone (or to look ahead on the schedule), it would be for the Raptors. But then again, that Miami game last year....no guaranteed wins.

    It's possible that in a condensed season, having a 10 man rotation of mediocre players (no matter what # Casey says today) is better than having a talented 7 man rotation- as far as injuries and fatigue are concerned.

    And who knows, maybe having a new and respected coach along with some veterans to help lead the way, this team can gel and surprise a few people.


    But I'd rather that they suck.

    GOod point. With the condensed schedule, it might make for some weird wins. I also saw in interview somewhere that talked about how condensed seasons like this one, with little training camp, favour veteran teams with established systems and coaches. That way there's little need for teaching. That definitely doesn't describe the Raptors.
