    No telling how much of this is real, but considering how nasty people get when they're losing it wouldn't be shocking in the slightest if at least some of this was true.

    Hawks are flying under the radar. They're not a .700 team by the end of the season, but I wouldn't be surprised if they ended up with a top 4 seed.

    The real action will come at the draft.

    If we get a top pick, then Phil has a real quandry. We can use a top flight rookie, but they'll still be a rookie and potentially years away from them...

    I think that Phil is going to have to start trying to make some moves. We have a number of expiring contracts with some that will have even less value when the season ends.

    To answer the thread, it typically takes 38-40 wins to make the play offs in the East.

    At 12-2, that means the Raptors would need to go 28-40 (.411) give or take a few wins. With 68 games...
