Default Devlin: Raptors in Top 4 in the Eastern Conference

Fair enough ... now if this was still Chuck I'm sure he'd say we'd be 1 or 2 in the East.

Boston & the Big 3. Cleveland with Lebron and the James Gang plus a point guard, although an aging 4 & 5. Orlando - great coach and great young talent, Detroit - New coach, Michael Curry, who has never been a head coach and a team President, Joe Dumars, who was looking to move nearly half of the starting 5.

Big offseason move, Kwame Brown, yes that Kwame Brown (actually I think he could be a good fit). Philly, Mo Cheeks gets an extension, the new AI gets his new deal and Elton Brand joins the team. With Toronto these are the top six teams in the East in my opinion. I actually like the Raps more than Philly. Brand is coming back from major injury and how will the youthful Iguodola handle the pressure of his new deal?

And I’m not convinced Detroit has much left, although they’ve always proven people wrong, they seem to thrive on that. How will Curry handle this team? Life changes for a coach when he moves 18 inches over to the head chair. You can go from friend to foe in a hurry. That puts Toronto in the top four!
