First let's look at the Southwest.

Damn this division is tough,

3 teams are legit contenders while 2 are very strong teams that could make the playoffs in the west. It's entirely possible that the whole division makes the playoffs though that is unlikely. It'll be a real battle out there as the margin for error is slim. The division is like a lions den and a team from another division is like an animal entering it. Scary division.


Now let's look at the Atlantic.

Good god this division is horrible. Imo, this division is going to be worse than when the Raptors won the division in 2006/7.

From the way things are working out the only threat in the division is a mediocre Brooklyn team. Seriously, the Celtics are rebuilding, the Knicks are lost and the Philitankers are rebuilding like they are hitting themselves with hammers.

All the Raptors really have to be is ok and the division is likely theirs unless Brooklyn can become more than meh.

Pretty much the Raptors are arguably a lock to be in the playoffs just by default because they are in the Atlantic.

I had a conversation at work about this today. EVERY TEAM in the SW is OVER .500... in the Atlantic... only one team, and even as a Raptors fan I have to concede that they are simply not that good. A first round-exit barring a match-up with team that has injuries.

WOW!!! Just WOW!! There must be something in the water in the SW.

SW division is freaking tough. They are forced to play each other 4 times a year. Then go through all the other western teams. Anyone of these teams could win 60 games if they were located in some east division.

:laugh: It's so freaking sad.

The Raptors are a second round exit at best.

The Southwest sends out 4 legitimate title contenders :laugh:

Its a shame that that division gets a playoff team, while all 5 teams in the SW would dominate that division

way too early to start this thread. Brooklyn lost 14 of their first 20 games last season and ended up winning 44 games.

also, what's up with all of the Raptors hate? they are a damn good team

The Atlantic division has been horrid for years. Winning that division is like winning the NIT tournament....
