If you skim the article you get some solid gems like:

Quote:
The New jersey Nets Will Make the Playoffs
The Miami Heat Will Sign Allen Iverson
Brandon Jennings Will Be the Most Improved Player of the Year
The Chicago Bulls Will Finish With a Better Record Than the Miami Heat
Jason Kapono Will Get Off the Bench This Season (LOL)
The Nuggets Will Trade Carmelo Anthony
So many bad predictions.

They would probably be best to use Milwaukee as a model as Milk kinda suggested.

If only we had Skiles. This is not going to be an easy job for a coach. Triano could make for a trainwreck. Milwaukee had a bad losing stretch and came back stronger in the end. How the Raptors react to losing will make a big difference.

C'mon - Barbosa is hardly jumpshot happy. And Kleiza isn't exactly the worst chucker around.

Not getting the Chandler deal done when the other side backed out after it was agreed upon isn't his fault at all. And Kleiza and Barbosa are not jump shot happy. Dude do you watch basketball?

People doubt raptors. We Never made the playoffs 2 years straight with bosh. We put good, nobody great around bosh, he couldnt really make anyone better on this roster. Next year will be a more free flowing offence and that would be better for the type of players we have. Worst record thats a damn joke.

The team is much better than a 10 win team unless everyone went down with injuries.
But the team may have the potential to surprise more than totally suck.

If Bargs can get 20-25 PPG, 7.5-9 RPG, 1.5-2.5 BPG 2-3APG everyone will be saying Bosh WHO? All those numbers are very realistic for Bargs since he will be playing more low post this year. So will get easier baskets and more dunks. Much of the critical comments about Bargs in the past were helping to compensate for some off Bosh's short comings. Three happy do you seriously think he wasn't put outside as he was on purpose? He was there to take pressure by the center off Bosh and allow the STAR more and easier looks.

I'm not say that there will be times that he won't stretch the other C but that will be against big and immobile Cs that he can burn.

Weems & DD will be better than l;ast year just from the sheer amount of work that both put in.

Kliesa may not be the player that Turk could be but he is gritty, slightly better defense and will put up better numbers than Turk did last year.

PG is in flux ......... we have JJ, Jose, Banks and Barbosa..........the only obvious one to remain is Barbosa. Lets wait but what ever happens I see the PG situation improved.

Bosh is gone and he definitely was our best player. We have Amir, Davis & Dorsey to compensate for his loss. Will we miss him yes but lets see what Amir brings he does have better chemistry with Bargs than Bosh did. He doesn't need or demand the ball and is a stronger defensive player than Bosh. Davis is a Rookie so its hard to say what he can contribute, Dorsey is hard nosed and will do what Evans does at 1/10 the price.

Really shouldn't mention Banks ( I did at PG), Beli and Evans all are basically deadmen walking and can be moved at anytime with basically only a positive impact on the team.

I think we can do the 7 to 10 spot in the east some teams still suck and some teams have got worse.
Below us NJ, Philly, Carolina, Cleveland, Washington, Detroit Above us Miami, Chicago, Boston, Atlanta, Orlando, Milkaukee, WE will fit inbetween those teams obvious some could surprise or disappoint.

We're a worse team on paper than last year's NJ team.

It's definitely possible.

Bleacher report is the biggest bunch of BS on the internet (in terms of sports anyway). I never take anything form this site seriously, they have the most ridiculous reports and rumors.

^^^ Why are you putting Ed Davis at Starting PF? Obviously it's going to be Amir over Davis.

On paper, yes, we are worse. New jersey has a solid young core and we have....a young core.

But the Nets suffered from a bad start to season and also faced a coaching change and had an injury plagued season to key players (Harris). I say we'll get a solid 30+ wins with our team if everything goes according to plan.

How is 30+ wins solid? I think we can get 40 wins next season if Bargs and DeRozan step it up and put up much bigger numbers then they did last season.

30+ wins is solid for this team. I mean, we're a bunch of role players. No leader. No All-Star. No nothing. When was the last time a bunch of rol eplayers came together to make the playoffs?

Anything under 27 wins will be a disastrous season.

And that's the most likely scenario (< 27).

I used to bow at the altar of BC.

But he's getting a free ride, time and time again.

I can only assume its because his moves seem good when they are made and create a bit of optimism. But when the smoke clears, if the results arent there, haven't you been duped?

I recall E Smith interviewing Bosh this past week, running off a string of players that BC has brought in over his tenure. Bosh can only laugh because none of them worked. Colangelo carries himself well and has alot of charisma. He should write a book on how many mulligans it can get you.
