Mike's Mailbag


An email to Mike: Will you be posting Toronto Raptor Recaps following every game like you do for the Leafs and Bills?

Mike says: Good question.  As a die hard Leaf fan, I don't mind posting a brief recap with some of my observations following their 82 regular season games and many (cross your fingers) playoff games.  It's a labour of love.  I post Bills recaps because in a sixteen game season, every game is that much more important.  Will I be posting recaps following every Raptor game?  No, but I will write an entry if anything particularly interesting occurs and following each Raptor playoff game.

The Toronto Raptors are tipping off their season tonight at home against New Jersey.  I anticipate a dramatic turn around following a horrific injury riddled season last year.  If Vince Carter can stay relatively healthy, a playoff position is a virtual certainty.  With Lenny Wilkens out of the picture, we actually have a coach who will coach.  There will be game plans and strategies implemented.  I predict a sixth place finish in the Eastern Conference and an upset victory in the first round of the playoffs.  Look for Chris Bosh to contend for Rookie of the Year honours.  Go Raptors Go!
