Default Divisonal Match ups

What will the Raptors' divisional record be at the end of the season? Feel free to break it down by team.

Outside the Celtics who do you think will be the toughest match up in the Atlantic for the Raptors?

I'll throw one more out here. Who do you feel is the best player in the Atlantic?

Toughest matchup is a draw between Atlanta, Philly, Cleveland, Orlando, Washington Chicago, Miami.

Best player in the east is Lebron.
Second Wade
Howard
KG
Pierce
Vince
JJ
Butler
Arenas
Iggy
Bosh

My Bad.

Atlantic toughest matchup will be Philly, close with NJ.

Philly is incredibly athletic. Brand will negate Bosh and Sammy will block alot of shots.

A Thad/Hedo matchup would be very good to watch.

Iggy will dominate our team, and there isnt a single player in the league that could keep up with Williams.

Philly will finish above the Raps in the standings at the end of the season.


NJ has some very solid pieces there and are going be a real solid team in the future.

YI is gonna be a tough matchup for Bosh and Lopez is gonna be a tough cover for Bargs. Harris will own ur points offensively but the Raps should have the edge on the wings.

Raps should be able to ooutscore NJ but will have a hard time stopping them.

Best players in the Atlantic.
KG
Pierce
Iggy
Brand(when healthy)
Bosh
Harris
Lopez
Allen

Clearly Boston is Toronto's toughest matchup in the Atlantic.. not Philly.

Iggy is better than Bosh.

and is a 2 way player.

I'd take Bosh over Iggy. Besides Bosh is the only double/double player in the division. So to put him 5th is an insult.

I'd say Philly is our toughest matchup outside of Boston. I bet we'll lose to NJN and NYK atleast once each. Hopefully we can put it all together during the season, I don't want to get of to a slow start but as of now it looks that will happen

Iggy may very well be one of the most overrated players in the league. Overrated defense, prone to turnovers, tendency to chuck on offense, handles are suspect. He's still a very good player, an all-star caliber player, but more like a very good second option than a star.

KG
Pierce
Bosh
Harris
Brand (when healthy)
Iggy
Lopez

Brand, KG isnt far off of that either.

Brand is better than Bosh.

Bosh is healthier than Brand.

Iggy is a hell of a player and I wouldnt say overrated in the least.

Harris is a hell of a player as well.

I would put Iggy over Bosh with Harris close behind because these 2 guys have the ability to absolutly change the course of a game.

The impact that they can each make on the floor is much much more than Bosh. Bosh has a solid jumper and has a few quicks(which has been going away for last couple of seasons-has no lift on second jump) but outside of that there isnt really anything he does to totally change the flow of a game.

I don't know about that but to think, they could be playing together.
