Default Wouldn't it be awesome if Raptors met Nets in the playoffs?

Round 1 seems like a big stretch


but Round 2 is also a stretch... but given the current standings, Round 2 occuring is actually the only one we fans can hope for.



so assuming Wizards drop to 6th...


Raptors should have no real problems taking it to the Wizards. I've followed the victories and they all seemed complete... and the most recent one was miraculous as well. Plus Caron Butler could be out for the First Round.



Nets have always had Lebron's number, and though Krstic is not available and the NBA refs will find ways to allow Lebron to travel and get phantom fouls, it is still conceivable the Nets can advance.



so there is a slim chance that it could be Nets vs Raptors in Round 2.



if that were to happen... I don't see how anyone can say the Atlantic is so bad... unless they simply want to say the East is bad...

Awesome for the Raps, not so hot for the Nets. But that would definitely be a hard fought series, since Vince always seems to elevate his gave against us.

It 'd be really an interesting series.Emotional ,very physical-all the hypes will be there.It could officially start a new rivalry in the atlantic.

I could see the Raps win in 6th or 7th.







Colangelo might sign The Big Old Oak...just for one specific task.

The Oak would make sure RJ doesn't have kids if he were to challenge Oak. I would say the same for Vince, but Vince doesn't have balls.

I was telling that to my friend the other night when cavs lost, were only 2.5game back of cavs and i m pretty sure a lot of ppl want the raptors to finish VC's season!

Next, I want the Heat, I will show Zo the door as well but wonder if that's possible with the seeding matchups.

Jury is still out on Raptors versus Nets.


Season series tied 2-2


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.

And now all you have left is Collins and Mikki Moore who Bosh would dominate... THe nets were already called a donut team, and now their playoff success is all gonna depend on whether they can hit perimiter jumpers.

Yeah man,ACC will be really loud like the ARCO arena in Sac.The refs might wanna consider using mega-phones instead of whistles.

Raps will be so pumped up,the'll give it all they have coz they're hungry and wanna prove nay sayyers.The'll be tought to beat at home.



I will still demand an "OAK" sighting,He'll be like an scare crow to somebody u know -who .That side show would be really funny.

Nets success is going to depend on their DEFENSE and willingness to play it 48 minutes throughout.


and Boone has emerged as a pick and roll threat, going 27-32 in three games scoring 60 points in the process. this is including the Detroit game.
