but when the Raptors won, Krstic RJ (and Kidd in one game) were not playing.



yet when the Nets won it was on the Nets home court... so nothing definite can be said.

Bosh was out in one of Toronto's home wins when the Nets wre without RJ.

all the more reason why the jury is still undecided.

Carter would die if he had to return to Toronto in a playoff seris, our crowds are hostile enough for Carter in relatively meaningless regular season games, imagine crucial playoff games, the crowd would be insane.

And when I say 'die', I literally mean that someone may actually attempt to hurt Carter.

Toronto would take that series, the New Jersey interior can't handle Bosh, Rasho and Bargnani, however the Raptors exterior of Ford and Parker would be able to contain and limit Carter and Kidd.

Now that Washington has lost Arenas it might just happen.

Now that Washington has lost Arenas I can't see any Toronto fan hoping that the Nets catch Washington......a washington TO first round match up would be great.

I can't see the Nets catching te wiz because that involves the Nets actually winning 5 games...

Maybe this match is destined to happen. NJ has been win games, and Washington just lost Gilbo and Caron. It'll still be a stretch though.

Wizards need to drop at least 5 games... possible but not likely...


simultaneously, Nets must win 5 games... possibly but not likely...

I myself would rather see the Raptors get a chance to knock out VC than step over the injured Wizards. It's moreso about the memories and passion than advancing to the next round to get tromped by whoever. Besides, who says the Raps wouldn't beat the semi depleted Nets with homecourt advantage?

So you're saying you hate Wince enough that you would rather play a HOT NJ team (they would have to be to get there) than a depleted Wizards team???

I would love to see VC get taken out by the raps but I'd take my chance waiting to a later round.

Nets vs Raptors 1st Round just got likelier.


with Arenas and Butler out, Nets are only four games behind the Wizards with 8 games remaning (and two of the mare head to head vs the Wizards)



though it will not be an easy series, Nets vs Raptors will be a FAIR one, as opposed to playin the Cleveland Lebrons.

So playing Cleveland is not fair???? I think if you finish in 7th you play the second place team and suck it up. You don't want to play Cleveland then play better and finish higher in the standings.

Of course if I was a Nets fan I would love to see a matchup with the Raps rather than the LeBrons.....

the only 2-7 matchup I like is versus the BUlls.


Nets have had the Bulls number all season long... especially... the number 18...
