2011-2012 Schedule Released
 
:cookie:

I didn't look at it real closely, but it'd be funny if it was the most balanced schedule they've ever had and they don't play a game all year.

RAPTORS: 2011-12 RAPTORS SCHEDULE

Yeah, make it 4-0 after we beat the defending NBA champions at home 104-98. :dancing:

Holy shit Nov 23-29 :dead:

jeffb 07-19-2011 04:59 PM

Jesus Dec 10-14

4 games in 5 nights, that'll be a disaster trip! :(

just going thru the motions sorta speak

There isn't a huge amount of thought that goes into it any year I would presume. There are blocks of available dates that go into a computer I would think. Surely they didn't slack on putting the little bit of effort into fixing the few conflicts that would arise. If so then whoever is employed in such things should expect to be fired. I know it never ends well when I decide to go through the motions on my personal hygiene just because I sense I'm not going to be getting sex for while. It just leads to even more extended periods of no sex.

we always get an early trip to the west, which is just unfair because not only is it a road trip its to the other conference
we basically dig a hole early in the season and have to dig our way out, its always like that for us each year, seems very unfair

We also have a tendancy to start bad to begin with and then blow our brains out every early December on those road trips which are always around the same time, effectively ending our season.

With the lockout situation the way it is, there might not be an early West Coast stretch. It's bugging me that the owners and players representatives have not had a formal meeting to discuss the issues. It's like they're in no hurry to settle the lockout.

Apparently they're gonna meet in a couple weeks. I don't think they'll do much until September.

You can whipe off at least the first half of that season IMO, I don't see it getting played.

Stupid greedy players vs Stupid greedy owners.

None of them deserve anything.

forme123 07-19-2011 11:16 PM

wow a 7 game home stand?!?! dont remember the last time we've had such a long stretch of home games.

but then again, i don't see us winning many of those...... (assuming their is a season)

Dark Knight 07-19-2011 11:36 PM

Either the league is getting better, or the Raps or getting worse because they are only a few games on that schedule that I see as winnable.

Considering the roster is not anywhere near set, that seems a little premature.

BTW, how has anyone got better or worse since no team has done shit yet?

I mean in the last few years. Every team has improved it's roster to the point where there are no more guaranteed wins anymore (not that there ever were, but at least 'very winnable'). Looks like we'll be battling Charlotte for that top spot in the lotto. :cookie:

I highly doubt it. I'd say we'll be in the 10-12 spot range depending on what we can do once things are settled with the roster and the remaining 4 or so spots.

Trust me, it'll be a strong draft, which means no way in hell we come close to #1.

We really need to tank for one more season. Andre Drummond is a super rare combination of size, strength and skill. Not to mention, Barnes and Anthony Davis.

jeff, realistically, who can BC add - with the moderate cap space available - that would vault this team ahead of 10 or so other teams in the lottery? I just don't see it.

Shifty.py 07-20-2011 03:02 AM

Add Dalembert and get rid of Bargnani and you're set

rapsmannn 07-20-2011 06:43 AM

i guess you missed the games where bargs embarrassed the guy in philly

dalembert is no chandler, he isn't going to have the kevin garnett affect on defense and rally a team on the defensive end the way chandler and garnett can

plus the fact that he wants to shoot more and ahs a bad attitude,

dalembert needs to be on a team full of vets
