Casey is insulted

Dwane Casey said he was "insulted" by ESPN's 33-win prediction #raptors

he is right to feel insulted.
he has more high hopes han that.
but if we get only 33w and make the playoffs i will be please, but let's just they that don't seem plausible !

Luckedout 10-24-2012 04:11 PM

good feel insulted, prove everyone wrong and have a great season. and that 33 win mark seems to be what most people predict 33-38 is the most common range ive seen.

LKeet6 10-24-2012 04:26 PM

i was insulted at first but that win total does see us go from .348 last season to .402 this season. Guess they're saying we'll improve but there are teams that will improve more. DC is good for saying this tho coz it shows confidence in the team and doesn't let our aspirations drop.

i think we'll be high 30s.

Stonezz 10-24-2012 04:28 PM

Im predicting low 40's, squeaking into the playoffs.

33 wins would mean 49 losses

That isn't a playoff record

I like Casey's response. The players can't help but get pumped up by it.

Kirby 10-24-2012 04:44 PM

I predicted before that Raps would be around 4-6 in the ECF with an above .500 record. It doesn't take much more than the effort that Casey can squeeze out of these guys and the rise in level of talent the Raps have acquired this offseason. Let's go for a ride.

I totally agree

box92 10-24-2012 08:27 PM

Really considering putting money down on this, as over 33 wins

DDUnreal 10-24-2012 09:59 PM

e z money

08-09 all over again.

Sounds like it's time for a poll.....

fancylad 10-25-2012 07:22 AM

If Casey legitimately feels that is an insulting prediction and he actually thinks the team can be .500 or so.... If he can pull that off, then that's coach of the year material right there.

Yeah lest we forget, depth means nothing.

Luckedout 10-25-2012 12:43 PM

Casey is not the only one upset. Derozan called hollinger a clown on twitter. apparently he doesnt know who he is.

MBailey85 10-25-2012 12:52 PM

I like Derozan's response too,showing that he's ready to be the leader of this team because he cares.

Hollinger gets way out of pocket anyway. He cockblocked the Tyson Chandler trade(For Calderon) with immediate and immense criticism(to Jordan,Charlotte) and hate(for Toronto of course),before it was even finalized lol.

F*** that guy and his predictions. The Raptors will be north of 35 and if they catch a few breaks,they'll be well into the 40's.

My prediction 40-42 (9th,resulting in a 14th overall pick for Houston which is not bad)

Who said playoffs. We were a 30 win team last season if healthy in a 66 game schedule. Essentially 33 wins means we're no better than last season and i don't buy that one bit.

Who said 'means nothing'?

as we've seen before depth means so little in the NBA.
