Injuries have come into play lately. Bargs has been playing well since coming back. DD has started his rise to stardom () and the role players are doing their thing. My as well stay completive and try for the playoffs. This years draft doesn't look so hot anyway.

It's mentioned as a reason for moving them up a couple of spots in the rankings. And no not maybe - there's only one way to read this. Stein is not making predictions, other than the streak continuing once they fall lower.

Look - I would say Stein is putting a little pre-emptive salve on our wounds.

The schedule looks nasty. They might not win another game for two months, depending on what happens with Melo and NJ. If jersey stays shitty, then they might grab a couple of wins. That eighth spot is not going to be within reach soon enough.

I would love for that too happen. I wouldn't care if we go on to the next round and get blown out if that happens

The streets of Toronto would be insane!

And all 12 of the Miami fans would be pretty pissed too.

The only problem is that Toronto resembles Dallas far more than Miami does.

We have to look at the bigger picture. If we make the playoffs, it's because DeMar and Andrea are having good seasons. That's what we want...internal development.

I just doubt it will happen since we have the worst defence in the league.

Even with DeMar and Bargnani breaking out at the same time, there would seem to be a bigger hill to climb than a lot of other teams in terms of the team as a cohesive whole capitalizing on having good seasons from their biggest scoring threats. And yeah - the defense would be the biggest hurdle there, but there is also just so much inexperience and poor role definition on offense.

The only reason we can entertain this though is because of eastern suckitude.....and that not to many other of these bottom feeders have seen the extent of injusries this team has....yet.


As for Miami, they'd better hope both LeBron and Wade are healthy in the playoffs.

I know reggie coming back is kinda lackluster. But remember how good he was playing before the injury.
Could be a huge factor come playoff time.

That's IF he's still a Raptor come playoff time..

Remember... he's an expiring contract this season... He could be traded in a few weeks...

I see no point in making the playoffs this season or even trying to win games. Be really careful with the players, make sure every little injury gets treated properly until it fully heals - do whatever it takes to maximize the chances of a higher draft pick, especially considering the uncertainty of the looming lockout and potentially a lost season.

Cleveland, Sacramento, Washington are doing the right thing. Raps should join this group if they are to improve significantly any time soon.
