    All you guys thinking were getting a high lotto from them are nuts Lowry,derozan,terence Ross,bargnani, and valanciunus is a legit starting 5. A bench of Bayless who was once projected over Westbrook in college + Ed Davis who was once considered a kg type as a freshman at unc + kleiza + Amir Johnson is a solid bench....someone sticky this but I think the raptors are a very good team now and will probably challenge for #8 or even get in

    You obviously didn't watch Toronto play this season. So a rookie and Lowry makes them a playoff team? Unlikely.

    They past us in the lottery. I can see the Rockets having two top 10 picks next year with Toronto's being the later one. Hopefully we don't do something stupid like trade it for Dwight Howard otherwise we are picking at 14 again.

    And if this (and age) makes Toronto better than 1/2 the teams in the East, they we could be looking at 2 mid 2nd round picks for Lowry. lol - total Morey fail.

    With the moves the Nets have made, and Phili and Indi on the rise, the East is starting to become tougher.

    Miami
    Boston
    Chicago
    Indiana
    Phili
    New York
    New Jersey

    There's 7. If Dwight stays in Orlando til the deadline, they may have a playoff spot. If not, it's between Toronto and Milwaukee, i give the edge to the Bucks.

    YES they will be good. They're in the East. If my poo could walk, talk, and dribble it would be good in the East.

    Cavs were in playoff hunt when Irving wasn't injured. He's only gonna get better.

    You can throw Atlanta, maybe Washington in there too.

    There's no way they make the playoffs the next 5 years and/or getting the #1 pick the next 5 years, in which we'd never see the pick. People complain that next year's draft is weak. Well, root for the Raptors to make the playoffs, then.

    Making the playoffs in the East doesn't exactly mean you're a good squad.
