Celebrating the Futility of the Toronto Raptors:
Realistically speaking, I think we should be 4-6 right now, with the Utah game the one that we pissed away. I won't point to the opener vs. Indy because we stole that game back beating Indy at home with a 5 point fourth quarter (so those 2 games cancel each other out).
At 4-6, the Raptors would be 1 game behind the 8th seed. And even at our current 3-7, we're just 2 games behind. As poorly as we've played to start the year, we're still very much within striking distance. Outside of the top 4 teams, nobody is really running away.

Doug Smith said, if we hang around 5 games behind .500 we would still have a shot for a late run for the playoffs!
3-7 is about what I expected given the schedule. Having said that, I'm not sure it's what management expected given that this is supposed to be a team competing for a playoff spot.
10 of the next 12 on the road will go a long way toward determining where this team is in a few weeks. If they come out of that 7-15 or worse it's going to be next to impossible for them to climb out of that hole.
I am thinking we should be 5-5, but I suppose the schedule has been rough for us so far...
Can't help it...I love the RAPS and every year I expect them to make the playoffs. It's kind of ironic that the 9 or 10 games I get to each year, they usually win
Maybe I should be visiting TO more!!!
Ya it's funny if I had guessed at the beginning of the season I would have said 3-7 or 4-6 but the way we have lossed has made it so much more infuriating of a 3-7 start.
Sometimes it just feels better to get blown out than to lose it at the end.
Bobcats aren't going to be easy they just beat the bucks at home
I refer to the Raptors as MY team. Therefor when they are on the court, its 'us'.
We win together, we lose together.
If we were 8-2 and Andrea was balling I'd be all over the TRADE HIM NOW movement. Gotta strike while the iron is hot.
please, for the love of God, just play some defence!
