Default Dark Horse to Win the East....TORONTO

How could you not...

1. A Bonified Superstar...Bosh

2. Total Team, Unselfish play

3. One of the best benches in the league

4. One of the best point gaurd combos in the league. Ford & Calderon

5. First in the Atlantic and Surging ahead and improving every game.

6. Colangelo could be GM of the year again.

7. All this with a percieved Lame duck coach.

It would be Undeserving not to call them a Dark Horse at this point.

If the Nets weren't getting daggers through their hearts at the end of every game (most recently by AI's lil sister, Ty Lue) they'd be a few games up on the Raps so lets not get ahead of ourselves just yet.

A lot of ball left to play and three 'rookies' playing big minutes for the Raptors they may hit their proverbial wall and have a losing skid.

Raptors fans may take exception to you jinxing them, but I personally like your moxie.

You remind me of a young Tom Connors from Skinner's Pond.

And so it begins. This topic would have been better in the team forum.

seriously though i don't think we can win the east... it's TOO Much of a big step to go from #1 pick to winning the conference... stuff like that just doesn't happen.

i definitely think we can hang onto our fourth seed and challenge for the third... thats as good as it's going to get though.

Good thread. The guy who made this thread didn't come out as a jerk, he wasn't immature like the typical Raptor fan ussually is, he just made some statements, gave all his reasons... there is no reason to hate the guy. But you could however... ROFL! Raptors win the East? : that's a good one!!! What's next? Steve Nash winning an MVP award?? ..... :rollingeyes: oh wait.......

I like the Stomping Tom reference.

I just don't see anyone else dominating the east, as long as they avoid the Bulls in the Playoffs then they have a shot...albeit a long one.

one thing you Raptor fans don't understand, is that the Playoffs is a diffrent animal. You can't just say 'oh if we face this team in the playoffs we will be alright' no it doesn't work that way. Look at the Pistons last year, best team in the league and then the almost lost to the Cavaliers in 7 games. There are so many examples, the Raptors are too young to understand this right now.. it takes time.
