Default Re: 2008-2009 Raptors Predictions

1. Boston Celtics
2. Orlando Magic
3. Cleveland Cavaliers
4. Toronto Raptors
5. Philadelphia 76ers
6. Detroit Pistons
7. Washington Wizards
8. Miami Heat

I have a feeling that Detroit is going to slip quite a bit this season. Still a playoff team, but not as good as they were in '04. I put Miami in 8 because I believe they will test out the Wade-Marion-Beasley combo. Might bring in Marcus Banks into the starting line-up at the beginning of the season or will make a last attempt to sign Chris Quinn. But without that leadoff PG, Miami won't have that get up and go to be a top seed.

I put Toronto above Philly for one main reason, the dynamic duo of Bosh and O'Neal could be a devastating front court. Don't get me wrong, Dalembert and Brand is good, but with Dalmebert's bad summer coming off leaving Team Canada and having an even more smaller role now that Brand is in there, they don't exactly have the same offensive touch as the raps do up court.
