"Every team in the East plays each other 4 times."

This Statement is wrong, Teams play each divisional opponent 4 times and 3 of the other 5 in the other 2 divisions 3 times and the remainding 2 teams in the other conference 3 times. For example the Celtics play each det, cle, and ind 4 times and chi and mil 3 times and in the south east they play mia, orl, cha 4 times while playing atl and was 3 times.

i dont think the elite teams *have* to improve at all. Spurs, Mavs, and Phoenix can all stay untouched, even lose a role player or two, get a year older, and still be significantly better than most "very good" teams (and pretty much all Eastern teams)

Houston, Denver, and Utah all improved. that's your top 6 west teams right there. any of them probably would've won the East last year.

the west is still far and away the better conference. so it should be mentioned that Toronto will have to fair well against these teams to accomplish 50 wins. i still say 47.

One fan. But thanks for overexagerating.



Exteremly young team with many of its players playing in their first playoff games. They were a pass away from a game 7 with an experienced team. Only person delusional is you.

Superboy is just an idiot, so no need to respond to him.

Rondo is not going to be able to shut down Ford and Calderon. Both Ford and Calderon are better players. Rondo would be nothing more than a 3rd string PG on Toronto like previously mentioned. Who cares about how good his steals per is? Per 48 minutes are useless stats.

rondo wont have to shut them down.....

and if you think any of your wing players can guard allen and pierce youre smoking crack....

raptors will barely make the playoffs, if at all this season, just wait and see. everyone got better in the atlantic except the raptors.... raptors are 42 win team at best right now.

Raps in 7.

Now now let's not get carried away. Bosh is better than KG but as a team, the Celtics are better.

Kg is better than Bosh.

Boston's top 3 are better than Toronto's top 3.

Toronto's team 4-12 is much better than Boston's team 4-12.

Bosh is better? Not right now he isn't. KG is the better passer, defender, rebounder and they're about the same offensively. Not to mention KG is more mature and would of never let the likes of Jason Collins, Nachbar, and Mikki embarrass him.

They just upgrade to the best team in the East in paper.

But did KG going to play in the paint or if he going to shoot from the outside and only 19% inside like last year, if he going inside then that a scare team, because KG don't need to be clutch they got Pierce and Allen to do that. Finally the East is getting a little bit better.

Its important for the NBA that Boston and NY get better, that will bring the ratings back.

Now Kobe have to leave the west so the NBA Conference can be even.
