Random 2012-13 NBA Talk

Post by JTPoni23 » Tue Oct 09, 2012 7:34 pm

With the NBA season around the corner, and no hockey (sniff), thought this would be a good time to get this thread going.

I think the Raps can seriously contend for a playoff spot this year, albeit a low spot. But with Valanciunas finally coming, and I'm hearing all these great things from camp from Coach Casey about players stepping it up like Ed Davis...its hard not to get my hopes up. Hopefully it doesn't turn into a Jays situation, knock on wood.

The Raps will lose a good chunk of games. They are like a lot of teams in the new NBA. If all things go well, and they avoid injuries (which they already have a few key ones), they can contend for a low playoff spot. There are only like a half dozen teams in the league with all the star power these days, so anyone should be able to compete for a spot.

Should be an interesting year with the Lakers loading up.

Raps finish the preseason at home a perfect 5-0! Trying not to get too excited as I fear a Jays scenario, but it's hard not to. Valanciunas looks better every day, and Derozan and Lowry look to really be hitting their stride. Hopefully we see a complete turnaround from the DeMar of last year.

James Harden a mere days after being traded to the Rockets is in early season beast mode.

Rondo returns from his suspension tonight. Hopefully he'll still pick up right where he left off.

I can't believe the Raptors are only 2 and a half games out of a playoff spot. Now we have to decide between #LetRossShoot or #LetRossDunk :)
