Sportnet.ca just recently did a piece asking if this current Raptors team is the best ever. Arguably Vince Carter’s 2000-01 team who finished with a franchise best 47 wins is still considered the best to most. Does this current squad rival that one?
Inspired by the most recent MVP rankings on NBA.com which suggests that Raps are “under the radar”, would you consider the Raptors to be perhaps the most underestimated team in the league at the moment?
*quote* No disrespect to the Raptors, but they may be the worst No. 3 seed I’ve seen since I started covering the NBA. What they are accomplishing is commendable, but Toronto being so high in the standings is very much a reflection of the sorry state of the Eastern Conference. *end quote* True or false?
Most have already commented that the only way the Raptors make the ECF would be if Indy or Miami suffer significant injuries to their star players, but lots of other interesting responses being discussed as well. Check it out.
I wish I was as smooth when it comes to recruiting like the “Big Cheese” Tim Leiweke is. Let’s hope he pulls out similar tricks to his trade like he did when he went after Jermain Defoe for the TFC recently. Extremely impressive!
