They need to start rotating and communicating and having a real system. And Bargnani needs to start giving effort on that end.

If they can get to 18-22 after 40 games I'll be fine with this season and optimistic of us making a playoff spot.
I appreciate how well you stated your position. I have a follow up question, if you feel like answering it. Since you don't think the Raps will likely make the playoffs, which teams do you think will get in? Of course I am asking you to base this off of what you've seen so far, and not a bunch of hypotheticals like potential trades. So, if the Raps don't get in, who does? Which teams fill the 6-8 spots?[/quote]

At this point i would predict

1. Orlando
2. Cleveland
3. Boston
4. Atlanta
5. Miami
6. Washington
7. Charlotte
8. Chicago

With Philadelphia, Indiana, Milwaukee all around the 35 win range ahead of us.
