A new POLL - How many wins are in the Raptors' future?

My apologies, Rapture Nation, for my absence. I was enjoying an all-too-brief vacation.

As a lead-in to our upcoming series of NBA forecasts, I thought we’d take your pulse on how you think our team will do this season.  Please vote in our poll, and if you wish to tell us why you think the Raps will do well (or not), leave a comment.

How many wins will Raps get in '13-'14 season?

    I’m thinking minimum 45 wins. We’ve got a very talented and deep team–probably the most talented in a very long time and withe the Celtics, Sixers, and Bucks basically tanking, we have a good chance to reach the post season.

      Hi Slap Dog: I like your number greatly. While I’m not quite as convinced as you seem to be about the Raps’ depth, I’m looking forward to my first trip to the ACC for a pre-season game (and it’s been a while since I’ve felt that way!)
      Post-season play? Definitely – in fact, heads should roll if we don’t make it.
      Thanks for commenting.

    50 wins

      Hi Joshua: The Raps will need everything to go just right to reach any win number starting with a 5. I hope you’re right, but I’ll be more cautious in my soon-to-be-published look at our chances.

    I’m thinking the Raps will have a decent regular season while making the 6-8th spot in the end. This may look pessimistic but the top five will most likely be Miami, Indiana, NY, BK, and Chicago so it will be quite difficult for any eastern team to sneak into that top 5.

    With that I’m hoping for mid to upper 40′s in the win column (ATL finished with 44 last season and made the 6th behind the above mentioned teams [they also lost Josh Smith]).

      Hi AM: I’m thinking very much along the same lines. I’m still juggling my spreadsheet, but will be posting my season forecast soon.
      Your 5 top Eastern teams look good, with one exception: I’m not sold on the Knicks. I don’t much like their guards, and who knows what they will get from Bargnani?
      Thanks for commenting.

        I agree, with the Knicks. I put them in their because they should be based on who they have. I haven’t had faith in the Knicks since the late 90′s/early 00′s haha.

          I hope the Knicks lose every game they play.
