    The chances of the Raps winning the Atlantic are very slim. Maybe if we acquire a player (by the trade deadline) who would ultimately improve our team defense, then I can see us challenging the Celtics for the top spot.
    Got to agree!

    Although Boston is stumbling quite a bit recently! Still they have handled the Raptors easily and dispatched them with disdain in each and every meeting.

    Raps are rolling all the same!

    Nothing's impossible... Boston still has some tough games ahead:

    CLE x2
    DEN x2
    HOU x2
    @LAL
    @POR
    @DAL
    SAN
    UTA
    and... @TOR

    Let's look at this again AFTER the trade deadline!

    If Boston's injury woes continue and Bryan Colangelo pulls off a "big" trade, Then maybe the Raptors do have a shot at 1st in the Division.

    We don't need a trade right now... this team is headed in the right direction.

    I don't want them to fix it, I want them to add more horse power.

    Default Vacation is About End

    Okay boys and girls.

    We are approaching the start of the real regular season.

    I must admit it was nice of the Raptors to spot the Celtics a 4 game lead. Now, its time to get down to business and take the Atlantic Division crown. Time to separate the men from the boys.

    Time for the Raptors to kick some butt and some more butt.

    With Boston losing yesterday in Denver (great game) the Dinos are 4.5 back of the C**tics. Perhaps even more interesting is that the Dinos are only 3.5 games behind Atlanta for the 4th seed!

    Home court is a REAL possibility! Can the Raps take it up a notch and catch the Hawks?! I hope CB4 doesn't miss any more games.

    Man what a difference a month has made. Going into the All Star things were looking so good. We were one of the best teams. And now...sigh I'm a loss for words right now. What the hell is going on?

    Raps currently sit in 8th-barely. One game ahead of Chi Town and our next 2 games are vs ATL and OKC! 4 games back of the Bucks for 5th. Dinos won't catch up. Looks like Kenny Smith was right! My bad homes. I along with the majority of Raps fans thought you were outta your mind. But 6th and 7th are still within reach, 2 games back of Miami and one back of Charlotte.

    Sorry, I think Orlando is the worst matchup for the Raps. No way they win that series.

    I think Boston and Atlanta are the two worst matchups for the Raptors.

    The Raps have had a few good performances against the Magic over the last couple of seasons. Orlando are still, clearly, far superior but I think Toronto has played better against them than the Celtics + Hawks.
