    Default Playoffs?

    Time for another hopelessly optimistic thread!

    We are 6 and 19 and it looks like we may have started to turn a corner (at least that's what my over reacting, boderline bipolar raptorfan brain is telling me). Our next 6 games are:

    @ Cleveland
    Detroit
    Orlando
    @ San Antonio
    @ New Orleans
    @ Orlando

    Realistically, with the way we are playing, there is no reason we can't go 5 of 6. So that brings us to 11 and 20. To get to .500 on the year we would have to then go on to win 30 of 51 games, which is a tall order but could be doable.

    In conclusion, the Raptors are making the playoffs this year. They are going to sweep the Knicks in the first round enroute to the franchises frist ever Eastern Conferance final appearance where we'll go 7 close games with the eventual champion Miami Heat. BOOK IT!

    just want to add we are 2 games over 500 the past two games. if this trend continues we should finish with about 63 wins on the season.

    Hey I'm sure we all played out a similar story in our heads. A reason why we keep tuning in. This one be the first time a team came roaring back from a dismal record. Odds are quite stocked against us. Most likely wont happen but yes there is a chance, Would be nice to witness it. And it was a while back where Antonio Davis lead us to a crazy finish where we won like 15 of 18 to squeak in the playoffs, McGrady showed his stuff as he was the best player on the team while Carter sat out.

    Still to early to put the rally caps on. This stretch will determine it. And we have already been let down many times already.

    Raptors are not making the playoffs, in my opinion, but that does not have to mean the season is a waste.

    Keep playing like they are (essentially like last season). Develop the system and make the core buy in.

    Trade anyone not named JV, TR, DD, ED, or KL should the right deal come along.

    Still think Toronto should be exploring taking on the worst deals in the league for picks or opportunity to swap picks likely to be lottery picks. Forget financial flexibility for 2-3 summers.

    If Casey can keep them playing like they have the last 2 games, they may not be a lock for the playoffs but they are not a bottom 5 team either.

    Hopefully send a 10-14 pick to OKC this year and get that noose off the neck.
