Default Playoffs- Are You Red-Y?



Who would you rather play in the Playoffs this year Raptors fans, the Magic or the Cavaliers. I know we are slated to play the Cavaliers but I hope we tank on that road trip and come back to face the Magic. Anything is better than that freak of nature LeBron James whom we never seem to be able to defend. I know Dwight is a freak of nature too but in my opinion we could fare better against him rather than LeBron.

Yup. Magic.

I have a healthy biased disrespect for that team!

I prefer the current Cavs than the Magic... the Cavaliers aren't hitting their open shots...

with the cavs it doesn't matter how other players are playing. Its Lebron James. The raps have nothing to stop him except a full hockey style body check that puts him in a concussion. That is the only way we can stop him.

With the Magic, the raps just match up very well. I dont care what Cavs team it is, the raps will be out in 5 games against LeBron. I hope we fall to 6th place and stop right there. 5th isn't good, 7th isn't good and 8th isn't good......damn..we suck.

I would take the cavs to be honest. I know that people are picking the Magic but when Lewis, Turkoglu and Howard are on, they are hard to beat. They have a quick PG also that can draw the foul.

With Nesterovic playing the way he has been, he could exploit Ilgauskus. I think he could really shut down Ilguaskus if come playoff time. But then it comes to James. Force the double team as much as possible.

Cavaliers is my choice.

Would rather play the Magic. I think we match up well against Dwight Howard as opposed to Lebron James.
