Just saw the power rankings thread in which the site claims the Raptors
will take 8th spot.
Am I the only one that thinks that in this case, and this case only, it could actually be more negative than positive for the Raps to grab that spot?
I mean, all alterior motives about the draft aside, you have either Boston or Miami waiting for you to give you the spanking of a lifetime. They will receive no mercy. And all I can see are the jokes and humiliation by Barkley and the TNT crew and other U.S. media. Not to mention the players on those other teams. And I can't even say I would blame them for snickering. Playoff experience is good, but this would be an epic beat down. No second unit, just pedal to the metal for four 40 point blowouts.
And don't you just hate, hate , hate when they sit there at the end of the game laughing?
