Default Goodbye Playoffs

Well after watching the GS game I personally dont think the playoffs are going to happen again this year. We have now dropped to 8th place and are 1.5 games back of being in 9th, and considering we are playing portland today we wll prob be a half game back from 9th by tonight. Considering the shit show this team has been since Bosh has come back do you think we will make the playoffs this year?

I have a feeling that the final 15 games (after OKC game) we'll turn it around. and we'll end up in 6-7th. I still say Chicago is going to get 9th. The next 3 games we'll be lucky to get one win imo. If we can somehow win tonight (doubtful i know) and then take one of OKC or Atlanta at home we'll be ok.

if Bosh can return to his pre-All Star break form then Raps will start winning some games.

we've lost to 2 of the bottom 5 teams recently, what gives you the confidence to say that?

Thankfully, the Bulls are out-crapping us.

We will sneak in at 8 and get pwnd by the Cavs.

Because we've done this before this team is capable and after Friday the schedules eases and if we can get 2-3 wins in a row i believe we can get on a roll again.

3 weeks ago it was "we can catch boston for 4th and maybe get 3rd"

Now its goodbye playoffs. When Bosh and Bargs aren't right this team isn't that good. This is happening now.

Pretty sure we will get slaughtered by Atlanta as well as in Portland tonight. Chris needs another 10 days to get his game back and after that, yes i do believe we will turn it around and make the playoffs. The only thing that might hold us back may be Triano's unwillingness to change things up and make players accountable. If we don't make the playoffs with all the talent on this team, it's time for a new coaching staff because this one would have failed miserably.

If i were Colangelo, i'd make darn sure we sign Amir in the offseason and go looking for more players with his intensity and high motor. Guys you don't need to motivate. Guys who's first nature is to be agressive and not to be passive.

Portland was off last night and we are playing lousy basketball and never fair well in back to backs. That old conditioning thing keeps biting us. If i were betting, i'd be laying big points and taking Portland tonight. It's the closest thing you'll ever get to a sure thing. I would love to see the Raps prove me wrong but this team is too easily predictable.
