those are all middle of the pack teams, their records aren't surprising
how are OKC, SA and Atlanta underachieving? they're all in line with expectations or exceeding it

I agree and even Denver at 25-14.....Not quite as good as expected i guess, but i'd say right around where they should be. BTW, how is it that Suns aren't overachieving? Most thought they wouldn't make the playoffs. They are coming back down to earth a little recently but still better then expected.

here's a reasonable list

overachieving (which is not negative by any means)
Portland (many injuries to key players)
Oklahoma City (very young team with no low post presence, young coach)
Houston (without Yao and TMac)
Phoenix (no one thought they would regain past form)


underachieving
Washington
Philadelphia
Golden State

Sure. You could also add NY to the overachievers (can't believe they're near .500) and Detroit the underachievers (they though they'd move on with Stuckey, and Gordon/Charlie V would improve their offense)

NYK got a real good coach and good players Harrington, Lee, Wilson, Galinari, Nate
they should be hovering around .500 in my opinion 35-40 wins

I never expected much from Detroit they didn't get a defensive players and the defensive players they have are old or injured a lot

I love that the only time this team shows as a headline on NBA.com is when we're listed as one of five overachieving teams.

If anything we are underachieving. I bet this guy just based his whole thing about standings. Since we are 6th he just put us as overachieving. If we had a better start to the season we woulda been better.

Actually, the reason he's saying we're overachieving is that he predicted at the start of season that we'd miss the playoffs and essentially said we sucked. The article was posted her by me. I'll look for it......it raised a few eyebrows here because he was harsher on the Raptors then Hollinger.

Can't blame the Indiana loss, back to back with a battle with boston.

So when we're sucking we're "underachieving" and "disappointing".... yet when we start winning we're "overachieving"?

Awesome.

Default NBA lists Raptors as one of the top OVERachieving teams!!!

Anybody think that John Schuhmann is sort of dumb for putting up this article, I mean it makes no sense.
