second place in the east at 29-15 and on an 8 winning streak despite Carroll being hurt. Lowry and DeRozan playing like arguably the second best backcourt in the league and the bench has been playing really well.

edit: by legit I mean do you think the raptors have a realistic shot at winning the East?

Nope. This is what they do every year and then get knocked out in the first round. They don't have a legit and reliable closer.

Define legit.

In the east they have a very small chance at getting hot at the perfect time and getting to the finals (very small). Raptors/Bulls are probably the only teams that even have somewhat of a chance at beating the Cavs but its pretty slim.


In the West they are a 6 seed and get blown out in the first round by OKC.

In the West they are a 6 seed and get blown out at best in the 2nd round most likely.

legit as in a legit threat to win the east.

Not really.


Sports are sports so you never know but realistically, I don't see them being able to beat the Cavs in 7. One of those Cavs in 5 type series.

What do you mean legit? Do they have a good chance to make it to the ECF? Absolutely. Do they even have a shot at the title? Fukk no!

Edit: Just saw post 4. No they have no shot against the cavs unless LeGM goes full potato and trades away some pieces.

If Derozan keeps playing like he has, then yes.

Carroll needs to come back ASAP too

Considering once it gets around that time of year it's all about health and who's getting hot at the right time. Yes, they have a realistic shot at causing an upset.

Getting Carroll back is huge.

I would bet my entire bank account that if they face the Wizards in the playoffs, they would get eliminated again .

They have no one to slow down Lebron. To beat the Cavs this is a must. Dont say Carroll either because Lebron was ballin' on him in the playoffs last year until Carroll got hurt.
