Where do the Raptors finish overall?
 
1) Which place do you think the Raptors will finish in the overall NBA standings?
2) Predict their win total?
3) List the teams that finish below them?

Raptors1995 11-29-2012 02:12 AM

1) 23rd overall - 8th worst team.
2) 32 wins - 50 losses
3) Washington, Detroit, Cleveland, Orlando, Sacramento, Charlotte, New Orleans.

Anyone recall Hollinger's 33-49 prediction?
Not so off after all ;)

They'll win a bunch of meaningless games late in the season, compromising any shot at keeping the pick. BC will parlay this pointless streak into an unprecedented 20 year extension.

Its still earlier even though they've been getting worse but they're playing through the toughest part of the schedule. After a few moves leading into(or during)the new year,they'll finish strong.

35-47

Dario 11-29-2012 04:22 AM

30-35 35-40 if all goes well

Metallikid 11-29-2012 05:13 AM

1) 27th
2) 25
3) 28th; New Orleans, 29th; Cleveland, 30th; Washington

If only the pick was top 8 protected this year.

raptor123 11-29-2012 11:33 AM

I see us still getting to 37 wins. I strongly believe we have enough talent on this team if used properly. As much as the players are trying to find their groove both on Team D and Team O..... so is Coach Casey.

We are 3-13 right now.
We finish off 37-29 the rest of the way !

For a 40-42 season !

Raptors1995 11-29-2012 01:39 PM

I initially predicted 38-40 wins.

So did I :(

We'd have to go 35-31 the rest of way or better. Doable, but with the up cominbg schedule getting even tougher believe it or not I don't see that happening.

th3answ3r 11-29-2012 02:40 PM

if the team stays as it is, I see no end to our losing

Raptors1995 11-29-2012 05:29 PM

There's most likely going to be a trade sometime down the road. Most likely Calderon and/or Bargnani. If not, BC is pulling for something like Ed Davis and Linas Kleiza for Wilson Chandler.

I think that could make this team a shoe in for the playoffs. baby ed and jose pylon calderon need to go!

boston was a joke, chicago wasn't a threat, as was new york, philly and so on. dude we won the atlantic in of the weakest eastern conference in years, the competition just wasn't the same.

LET'S GO RAPTORS!!!!! 11-29-2012 08:04 PM

although that may be true. no team emulated jose's attitude on d by saying here you go raptors, here's a win for you.

I stand by my original prediction. Playoffs. This team has both looked so bad and yet so close. I'm going to hold onto hope that after this month long road trip winds down, there will be solid improvement, with a post-all-star run edging us into the playoffs.

Irrational, yes, but Raptors fandom ceased to be about rationality years ago.

We're all masochists. It's the only logical explanation.
