In their daily preview of the upcoming NBA season, ESPN has ranked the Eastern Conference teams in order of predicted finish.
Contrary to what many in these parts believe, the “experts” say the Raptors will finish a close 9th and miss the playoffs.
This comes after only 4 of these 52 experts predicted Chris Bosh to resign with Toronto next summer.
Again, both of these polls differ from the majority of opinions I’ve heard on both subjects.
Personally, I think the Raptors make the playoffs and Bosh stays…So what gives?
Is ESPN showing their American bias, or are these projections simply realistic? Am I a blind homer?
