Really when it comes down to it, there are too many bad teams in the Raptors range in the standings. I would say the Raps are better than all of those teams, we'll find out when we play Detroit tomorrow.
I figure that the raptors need to play hard and if they win, who cares. We aren't getting the #1 spot anyway. the plan needs to be to trade up and get whoever Colangelo feels is best for the team. That might mean giving up a pick or two and a player, but really we have very little chance of getting in the top 3. Might as well win now and then trade to get where we want. As nice as it would be to win the lottery, I just don't think it's in the cards this year.
