Wow change from last year.
Nobody here buys the fact that a 5 team improvement in D efficiency means playoffs in the east ?
Or is it purely talent assessment ??
I guess there must be doubts about Casey and staff ; but I really think casey has total reigns to run his coaching philosphy this year. Fits with MU style. Raptors wont start "o for 15 games begining of season" and that should account for 5 - 8 more wins over the season
Theres talent on the roster, but I do not like the way the team is constructed. I hope they pound it with Val, but both Gay and Derozan can't hit a 3 for sh*t. I know they could improve, but until they do I'll place them outisde of the playoffs.
I think you also have to consider the Raps D efficency dropped last year with improvements on the offensive side of the ball. I think the O is not going to be so great this year.
