Really going out on a limb there. Not! Besides the Celtics, Magic, Cavs and the Hawksthere are 7 other teams that are close to equals with the other 4 just plain bad at professional baseketball.
The Bulls as with many of the last previous season will depend on the outside shot and without BG it doesn't look good from the on-set. Don't sleep on Rose's commiment to be the best baseketball player he can be. He's a kid that gets the game and the need to improve his game no matter how good he is. Though his shot needed a ton of improvement look for it to be a bit better this season with an even greater improvement on the defensive end.
The Raptors have a nice nucleus now and with Bosh getting ready for new paper could quite possibly vie for the number four slot if Atlanta underavhieves like they have recently. i don't expect Bosh to stay in Toronto after this season as he is way to personable and marketable not to be in a bigger market.
Let me say, if the Raptors are good this year I'll be the first to admit to Tito that I was wrong. I just can't see them being AS good as you claim. They won 33 games last year. This isn't like San Antonio losing 60 games and then drafting Duncan and getting Robinson back in one fell swoop. They added Hedo Turkoglu, that's pretty much it. If Bosh can stay healthy and Bargnani takes the next step (we've been waiting for this forever), then maybe they win 43 games. But to be so adamant that they'll be a top 4 team and take a 1st round playoff series, I think it's way too premature to say this with such confidence.
oh shit TITO WAS RIGHT! Raps were ripping it up fell off a bit. Gonna finish about 4 ahead of the bulls
