Default Fox sports power rankings - Raptors at 29.

NBA Power Rankings - Top 30 NBA Basketball Teams - FOX Sports on MSN



Once I saw it said the Raptors signed backup center Amir Johnson I did an immediate :facepalm:

I don't think the Raptors will be as bad as Fox says they will be...

Way to talk shit about a 22 year old player who played consistent D all year (aside from his fouls) and showed that he could get progressively better with time. Now the raps control him for a long time clearly believing that he can grow into an nba starter. The writer clearly did not follow toronto last year.

Wizards, Clippers, Pacers, Philly, Cavs and many others are heard of us? Exactly why?

I see these Americans are retards.

^the cavs should be ahead of us, they have some pretty good veterans, they'll play much better now since lebron is gone and they can play there game instead of being spoon fed by lebron although they'll struggle to make the playoffs

They're losing Shaq and Big Z, their scoring options are Jamison, Mo Williams, Varejao and Anthony Parker in that order; I don't see them pulling it together and finishing better than us.

end of the world....an american tv network thinks we suck...although the off season isnt even over yet...

and wow...you guys are hilarious...

our team with our best player, won less than 40 games last season..

cavs with their best player won 60 games....

so if you take the star players out of both of those teams, you really think Raptors are better?...we might have a better future but they are better than us in every position except for center right now...

bosh is nothing compared to james. to be a power forward leading your team to victory you have to be taller, bigger, and most importantly better. Bosh will never measure to the likes of dirk. i have faith in bargz to develop. remember, dirk wasnt as good as bargz at his age so take it easy with the gentle giant. i say, bargz, if trained properly, can be MUCH better than bosh. he, DD, and AMIR JOHNSON, our PF!!!!, will lead this team to a championship in a couple of years if we can get a vet/stud pg to train the young gunz

... That's cold. They even ranked the likes of the Nets, Pistons and the Pacers ahead of us. They obviously have no idea what they're talking about.

The Cavs are gonna be horrid! Moon is apparently gonna be starting now, next to AP and Month Williams. If we don't finish ahead of them then we'll be close to dead last. Cavs will win 20-25 games tops.

The current ranking of the Raps really isn't unfair.
We have no Star on our team. I'm not complaining ... I just hope we play with passion and aggressiveness on both ends of the court.
Our second unit will be as good as our starting 5 given the current make up of the team.
The situation could be very different after BC does his thing in the summer.

That's like saying that DD can be MUCH better than Wade lol.... entirely possible but HIGHLY unlikely.

While probably a tad too low. I don't think that 29 is horribly unrealistic if the team stays as is (or even if Jose is traded for a middling talent). For the 2 years before Oklahoma City was good, they were awful. Even though you saw the talent on the roster, it took a while for them to gel, mature and find the right mix of players. It may take the Raptors team a couple of years to make their way up.

i love the ranking.
we will suck, maybe not suck as bad as 29th... but we will suck pretty damn bad.

in any case, i like being overlooked, because it'll make it all the more sweet if we actually do well.
i'm sure BC has some magic up his sleeves, and will pull off something interesting.
