Williams-Turk
Smith-Bosh
Horford-Bargs

Rondo vs Jose
Allen vs DeMar
Paul vs Hedo
Garnett vs Chris
Kendrick vs Andrea


Bibby vs Jose
JJ vs DD
Williams vs Turkoglu
Smith vsBosh
Horford vsBargs

We have no one to gaurd Lebron or Shaq (recall him going for 40 or something last year on us?).

So anyone but the Cavs.

Of the elite teams, I'd say Boston because they don't have a mammoth in the post. But then again, KG is a still a major handful. I think our youth will help us though, if we 're able to make them run.

And if we can find a way to slow down D12, the rest of the Magic really doesn't scare me.

Lebron just always owns us..so does Shaq, now together? Lets hope Ru Paul can Sashay his way into showing up the big aristotle.

KG has always owned Bosh. He has consistently made a mess of him on both ends of the floor.

Of the top-tier teams, Boston runs our shit the most. It's no secret that Bosh messes himself any time he looks at KG, and Calderon couldn't stay in front of Rondo if his life depended on it. Those are two pretty significant points of concern...

We match up very well with Orlando, always have.

No way. I'm not a 'Sheed fan or anything, but I think Boston has a great team right now. Every player who plays for them buys into the system that Doc has and knows his role. Rasheed is still a tough as nails vet, great defender, adds even more experience, and while what he does might not show up on the stat sheet, he is going to cause teams a lot of problems.

And Sheed >>>>>>>>>>> Big Baby

Orlando is the only matchup team for Raps comparing to Boston or Cavs... I think we got no chance over Boston!

The two situations aren't anything alike. Rasheed is probably the ideal guy for the Celts to have picked up.

Sheed is one of the league's smarter players in terms of general basketball sense, whereas JO is essentially just a black hole. On a team of vets, adding Rasheed will just contribute to the overall basketball IQ. He'll be able to step out further than Big Baby and spread the floor for Paul Pierce to operate, which will be huge. Rasheed can actually defend and lock down players that are much more athletic than him, he's not just a shot blocker.

To this point, i don't think there is anyone on the Raptors that can guard any of the best sg's in the league today. Kobe and Lebron still can blow by anyone of our players with ease. I was hoping that the Raps could have gotten a SG that is known for his defence abilitites, but we ended up with JJ. I hope the team defence can hide our individual denfence difficientcy(sry for spelling), but that comes from chemistry and we just changed our roster drastically.

Exactly. We have no chance against them. First KG will be guarding Bosh so Bosh will have 0 pts, then 'Sheed will guard Bosh and he'll still have 0 points. Bosh will be lucky to get 4 points of FT's
