    I wouldn't bet on it happening, nor would I bet against it (can you tell I'm not much a betting kinda guy? haha) but I've always maintained that finishing 14th from the bottom, and therefore surrendering the 14th pick for Kyle Lowry, AND getting future picks back in play for trades, is a pretty desirable outcome in itself. There are positives to either outcome.

    I would be happy with anything from 10-16 (15/16 means playoffs, 10-14 means low pick for OKC). Toronto is not only battling for 8th in the East but 14th among all teams in the NBA (Western Conference included). Although I don't see them getting 9th in the East and 14th in the NBA considering the West > East.

    Right now they are 10th worst in the league, and only 1/2 game from 11th worst (Philly). But they are only 1 game from 9th worst (Minnesota).

    This is the anti-tank.. much funner than tank-watch.

    What kills me with this whole season is that if we would have started ANY better than 4-19 we would be in a much better position....even 6-17 or 7-16 and we would find ourselves 1 or 2 games back today
    But if we started the season a lot better we wouldnt had.traded for Gay, additional 2/3 wins would be nice though

    The blown 20-point lead games after the 4-19 start hurt too... especially considering they were against Milwaukee and Philadelphia.

    It is a very strong possibility.

    I was worried about the MEM/NYK games. In my mind I was thinking best case scenario is a split.

    The fact the Raps came back after all-star break behind 6 games with 29 games left to play and they have played just 3 games and are now 4 games back gives me hope.

    The two games vs. Milwaukee are going to be HUUUUUUUUGE! Point received?

    Also, despite all the bad luck raps have had this year, they got a little bit of good with both BKN games and the ATL game. 3 very close losses.

    For some reason, I have a gut feeling that this will end exactly like that 2009-2010 season when the 8th spot was stolen from us by the Chicago Bulls. Man, I still remember how much that sucked. Charlotte shouldn't have let them win that game....

    Let's be honest, the team now is CLEARLY better suited to make the playoffs compared to the 09-10' season. A dysfunctional Turkoglu, not a first option Chris Bosh, Andrea Bargnani who clearly is Andrea Bargnani, inconsistency from the point guard spot, Sonny Weems was our starting shooting guard. Other than Derozan (rookie year), one of Antoine Wright/Marco Bellinelli was our best player off the bench. Goodness, we at least have a plan moving forward.

    +1

    Looking forward to next season with this team (and AB's replacement. if BC can work some magic) after an off-season of work for Ross and JV.
