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.

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.

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.

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.

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

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.

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

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.
