Default Where do the Raps finish?

Some players haven't landed, but we've seen J. Johnson land in NJ, D-Will likely to follow, Rose is out for much of the year, Orlando is losing Dwight and it looks like Idiana is losing Hibbert.

Below are last season's standings.

This will change as players land this week, but if the Raps upgrade SF and add Nash, where do you think the Raps finish in the Eastern Conference in 2012-2013?

Eastern W L
Chicago 50 16
Miami 46 20
Indiana 42 24
Boston 39 27
Atlanta 40 26
Orlando 37 29
New York 36 30
Philadelphia 35 31
Milwaukee 31 35
Detroit 25 41
Toronto 23 43
New jersey 22 44
Cleveland 21 45
Washington 20 46
Charlotteo 7 59

I'm calling 5th seed under Casey's system and with the improved talent. (would have said 4th, but I would like to give time for youth to learn and the team to gel)

Let's wait a week and see where things stand. Too many moves need to be made by so many eastern conference teams yet.

With NJ's improvements they're getting I'd say they win the atlantic, followed by us, Boston, Knicks, Philly(only team under 500) in order.

Depending on what Philadelphia does i could see us behind NYK, Boston.


Boston won't be as bad as first thought after the season. Knicks could be third if they get their heads out of their asses. we're 3rd/4th probably. But again, let's see what happens in the next week.

All depends on RayRay for Boston.
Will be a real tight division going forward though.

I think they're going after Mayo

And if they re-sign Bass

Rondo/?
Mayo/Allen/Bradley
Pierce/Green/Joseph
Garnett/Bass/Sullinger
?/Melo/?


Really need to address the Centre spot, but 1 through 4.....quite set.

I've heard they want him to play C, but the dude is getting old, you think he can take the brutes? I know he played C in the playoffs, but a whole season? I don't know about that

If they tank this year end up a nice pick plus clear out some more cap space the hawks could go after howard and paul next season

For some reason they said it was easier for him to play centres as he doesn't have to cover as much ground like when he covers PF's
Shrug.
Dudes old and busted, shoulda retired.

You were under a rock during the playoffs eh?

If I'm the Celtics, I'd be going after Kris Humphries. He would be a nice fit next to KG. He's essentially Bass, but a much much better rebounder, an area where the Celtics struggled mightily last year besides KG.

I heard there's a 0.001% chance of Howard being on the Magic this season. so they have to trade for him.

I'll wait until July 15th or so to tell you my exact prediction. But I do know one thing for sure, we're going to the playoffs with Nash here. He almost took a bunch of garbage to the playoffs in the tough Western conference.
