We all get that some things have to go right for the Raps to have a breakout year. Can O'Neal stay healthy? Can Jose handle the minutes? Is there a small forward in there somewhere? Lot's of questions. But tonight when I sit down to watch Bosh and the boys it's really not about any of that. There is truth to that whole one game at a time sports cliche--even for us fans. I just want to cheer for the home team and enjoy watching a basketball game. And, if I want to believe that the Raps are going to win 57 games this year and the NBA title, so be it. It wouldn't make me a lesser person. Hell, I'd probably be happier.
So Dave, I have a column for you.
(48 wins, third seed, first round win against Washington, btw)
