    Default ESPN - Heat Reaction calls Raps 3rd best team in East!

    Finally getting some respect. If not for free throws, game would be different. But hats off to these guys. Great. Job. Maybe bench was a bit too short tonight. Just saying.

    Great to see ... I have been calling them for past 3 weeks but they will never beat Indiana or Heat in 7 game series with this team. They need help but our GM will not do anything about it.

    Well deserved.

    Btw.... I still find it ridiculous (yet unsurprising) that ESPN has a whole section solely dedicated to the Heat.

    Well, you have to compare them to the other choices. Just saying. There are nothing but bad teams in the East right now after the top 4, and I can't see the Hawks maintaining a high level of play all season without Horford. If they do, Budenholzer should win the next 5 coach of the year awards.

    This team needs help to get pass Heat and Indiana and MU will not make any trade to make this happen this year. This is our ceiling now: 3rd best team behind these 2 team.

    There's no trade he can make to "get them past" Indy and Miami. Not like you can trade Demar and Lowry to get Lebron.
    You can find me on Twitter.

    Hollinger's playoff odds has the Raptors with a 99.9% probability for the playoffs and 16% for the Finals. He projects a 50-win season. This is getting serious...

    That all started when the Big 3 was form.

    Dallas has one as well. Boston, New York, LA.

    True but that's now what I'm talking about. Dallas, Boston etc. is part of ESPN, but their own separate sites. This "Heat Index" thing is on the main ESPN site.

    This whole "ceiling" talk is a load of Garbage, in my opinion. Our ceiling 2 months ago was 8th, maybe.
    Its a moving ceiling, which is the exact opposite of what the term is supposed to mean.

    These players continue to prove people wrong, including myself, and I for one, am loving it.

    Just curious. We copied ESPN with the Reaction right? Not the other way around?

    wouldn't the ceiling just always be "best team in the nba" ? pretty sure everyteam has the same ceiling.

    no ceiling is where you should realistically end up by the end of the season, and I'm pretty sure Utah and Milwaukee's ceiling is not best team in the NBA

    This team's ceiling is TBA because we have no clue how good Jonas, Ross and even DeMar can get.

    Any time you are projecting in the future there is the possibility of an egg on your face. Many of the people proclaiming how they knew all along the Raptors were going to be good have been saying that since day 1. Even a broken clock is right twice a day.

    As for the previous ceiling talk, 14 games as impressive as they've been, does not make a season. The Raptors had a couple of good stretches last year. Not trying to be a downer, just trying to put it in perspective of a whole season.
