Default To all the doubters.....

.... who said that this team wasn't any different just because they didn't go 8-0 in pre-season

.... who said that Triano was a sham of a coach and wasn't the right man for this team

..... who said that Bosh was overrated, lacked toughness and lacked heart

.... who said that Bellinelli was just a "meh" signing and wouldn't amount to much

.... who said that this Raps team would still struggle to make the playoffs and be lucky to get 40 wins

.... who said that Jose was overrated, couldn't play D and wasn't going to be the right starting PG for this team because he was incapable of pushing the ball


Thanks.

For looking so completely silly right now.


I said it before. I'll say it again. 48-50 wins. #4-5 seed.

Bookmark it and come back to it in April.

I thought they were just going to start off rough but looks like there chemistry kicked in. I am so happy we can get off to a great start now

I said that about Bosh. Alot

Still think it, but maybe 48 games into the season if he is playing like he did tonight I'll change my opinion.

OK, can we just calm down. I remember starting 3-0 last season. Not saying this is anywhere what's going to happen again. Just saying, calm down.

Whiners will not stop whining. It's what they do.

Man - I enjoyed that game.

And I said the Raps get a 3 seed so nya nya Toraps. Why so pessimistic?

Yeah - ok - I was going overboard, but I truly believe this is do or die this season, and I figure they'll choose do.

This is true, but there has been so much gloom and doom over meaningless games, that it just doesn't feel too early to sense that they've already overcome all obstacles.

And put me on the Beli bandwagon - the defense did it for me.

Yeah - three pretty ugly games though. Why were all 8 pre-season games so freakin' meaningful, but the kind of win against a top tier team that we've all been waiting for is just ONE game?

Yes, it's one game... but it's one game against the best player in the league... and a team that's expected to contend for a title.

We went 3-0 to start last season because Bosh was EVERYTHING for us in the first 10 games or so.

THIS season we're going to see a TEAM game... and that bodes well for our chances at a good record.

I LOVE this Raps team. LOVE it.

@ LX... #3 eh? Dang.. lol... you've got me beat. Who knows what could happen with CLE and WAS though? You could end up being right. The only real certainties in the East are ORL and BOS.

Also.... LMAO at the critics who were consistently ranking the Sixers over the Raps.... they looked horrible against the Magic tonight.

trust me I'm as happy as you guys are but I'm keeping it cool and thinking how other fans around the league would think : Cleveland played hard against the celts the night before not to mention Lebron played basically the entire game, now I think if we can beat orlando that would be something to go crazy over.

No problem.

I'll make you a deal.... if you stay cool when we lose (no matter who it's against) I'll stay cool when we win (no matter who it's against).

Have to remember though... the Cavs won 66 games last year. I'm about 99% sure that the whole league thought this would be a win for the Cavs.... B2B or not.

I sure should know better, I know it's different and a different sport and everything but my Riders didn't win any of their pre-season games, but are tied for second right now

GO RAPTORS!

No one's saying that we're going to the Finals ACIE.... but you're quite the curmudgeon if you can't appreciate the improvements that the Raps showed tonight.
