    Default Raps/Nets April 26th Turn out the lights...

    Should be an interesting game...anything can happen when there's nothing to play for (or in this case, less than nothing). Our fellow "reach for third" teams are playing some heavyweights but who knows who will play. Our Raps have a tendency not to give in but maybe there will be some motivation for the nets. Green is heading for free agency and will probably look to score 40 on us (unless we can take that damn cupcake down from rim). The Hump probably just heard that keeping up with the K's just got renewed for three years and will look to get his against his old team. Should be an interesting next 12 hours.

    Nets are only dressing 8 players and sitting Hump, Williams and Green. Shameless.

    Are you f'ing kidding me? Williams is no surprise but Hump and Green?

    Ugh.

    I guess you can't blame them.

    We'll see what happens but if the Raptors win, I hope it is by 40 and the lottery gods are watching and giving favour to the Raps.

    Uzoh with the Raptors' first career quadruple-double. Points, Rebounds, Assists, Turnovers. Book it!

    Have the Nets done anything right this season? From trading for DW, Giving up a high pick to Portland not landing DH, Now the most obvious tank. They can lose, fall in the draft which allows Portland to get the pick (just top 3 protected).

    +1000

    I hope the sports gods find favor in the Raps and Hornets who at least tried.

    I jinxed them! Green and Hump were the only two players I mentioned! Pathetic. But the funny thing is, the GSW game is even more interesting. They have their fate in their hands. Either way, one of NJ or Tor will win putting them in a tie with GSW as long as GSW lose. If they win, not only do they drop one pick....they drop the pick altogether (losing anything 8 or worse to Utah..I think). They might just dress 4 players

    edit....it looks like it's wallace, not green who is sitting along with hump and williams. Put the cupcake back!!!

    then again...there's probably some fan in NJ (the fan) who's saying "no bargnani?!, no calderon?!, no bayless?!, no barbosa?!...no bosh?!.....and who the ^%&*^ are Anderson and Uzoh?

    I was going to apologize to the Nets fans and org. for slagging their overt tanking posture because I realized after posting earlier (and as someone above just mentioned) that we are equally holding back our top tier guys as well. Its going to interesting if DC plays 8 guys as well and let it be the battle of the backups and let the chips fall where they may. That would be the fair thing to do I think....and mildly "interesting"....

    On a positive note, if the Raps were to lose, a tie with Sacramento for 5th worst is a strong possiblity. Apparently the Lakers are sitting Kobe, Bynum, Gasol and Barnes, in addition to Artest being suspended.

    Looks like the standings will end like this:

    1) Charlotte
    2) Washington
    T-3) Cleveland
    T-3) New Orleans*
    T-5) Sacramento
    T-5) NJ/Toronto
    T-7) Toronto/NJ
    T-7) Golden State**

    * if NO were to beat Houston, then Cleveland would be #3 alone and New Orleans, Sacramento and NJ/Toronto will be tied for 4th

    ** if [when] Chicago beats Cleveland, then Chicago clinches 1st overall in the NBA (homecourt throughout playoffs) and San Antonio would have nothing to play for against Golden State

    To be fair, Bayless really IS injured, Bargnani probably is, and Calderon...has a *ahem* eye injury.

    I hope Alabi starts tonight, DD gets ejected after the introductions, JJ goes 1-21 tonight and Alan goes for 2-12 from three.

    And Grey elbows Shelden Williams in his 5head, and gets the ff.#2.

    side note, Shelden's real middle name is......DeMar.

    I agree. They probably just didn't know they were injured

    One other note. Not to get sentimental here but this forum has made an interesting season a lot more entertaining. Hard to say it will be a long summer...because it's summer..but I look forward to seeing the the Toronto Valanciuni err..Raptors in the fall.
