    Default Top plays of '12/'13 - Raptors get Shafted

    No Raptor play made the list. The only reason I would be upset about this, is because of 2 derozan plays which have a right (compared to the other plays) to make it in the top 10!

    1.

    Not only is the Buzzer Beater the EXACT same situation as JR Smiths buzzer beater that went #4, but Derozan has 2 defenders on him and shoots from farther out (at least a step)!! How did JR get to number 4 and Derozan not even have his play in the top 10?

    Jr Smiths play:


    2.

    Now this one pisses me off. Derozans dunk I believe is 2nd on the Dunk ladder, ahead of 3 other plays found in the top 10! AND YET, those 3 plays appear on the top 10, and Derozan with the best unassisted poster of the year gets shafted.

    I hate american media.. Thoughts?

    its not like the knicks were even playing against a better team than the magic anyway.

    basically no one in the US knows/cares about the raptors ever since vince left. i remember in a game right after the gay trade, an announcer saying rudy came from miami to toronto. what??? its like as soon as any player ends up in canada, everyone just forgets anything they knew about them.

    Agree on DD's dunk.

    Knicks vs. OKC game winner OR Raptors vs. Magic game winner?


    Sorry, Knicks and OKC. Context matters.

    DeRozan's dunk was definitely one of the top 3 dunks of the year...I don't know what goes through the minds of the NBA.com executives. I gave up a long time ago with these Americans.

    It was the Bobcats.. not OKC..

    The shots were identical, but Derozan had two defenders (from a better team) and shot from further away. There is no other metric someone can argue that JR made a better play, other than the 'reputation' metric. Thats what pisses me off, its only because he is JR and hes part of the Knicks. No other reason comes to mind!

    They are interested in their own market, though they don't get the fact that more coverage on Raptors expand their market by... a lot.

    I think we shouldn't care about recognition as long as our record doen't justify it. The Raptors want recognition? Get to a conference final.

    Hey! You can't blame him, I mean the Bobcats are basically on the same level as the Thunder.

    Raptors got shafted because they didn't get a play selected in the top 10 of approx 280 000 possible possessions across the league this year?

    Yeah the world hates us for sure.

    It would be quite stupid to say that the American media doesn't favour their teams any more than they do the Raptors.

    Not being on a top 10 list doesn't mean it's the end of the world, but it's somewhat meaningful when DESERVING plays are put on them.

    Some plays are included because they are truly great plays that transcend geography/demographics. Other borderline plays are likely included because the NBA isn't stupid and knows what/where their biggest markets are (ie: NY). Plus, a consensus list would be boring, whereas a contentious list creates discussion and debate... which do you think the NBA would prefer??

    Rudy's steal and dish to amir for a layup to send it into overtime and then go onto win the game with a clutch shot.... COME ON NBA.... Rudy pulled off the legendary Larry Bird play in that game.

    Yeah. I am blind.

    I think it was the colours that had me thinking OKC.... and once something is in your head.... never mind the fact it says "CHA" in bottom corner.

    DeRozan on Mozgov definitely belongs in the top 10. If it was Lebron, it would definitely have made the list. Or if Derozan played for the Clippers, it would have made the list.
