    Our 2001-2002 team looked good on paper. Too bad injuries ruined that season.


    My personal favourite team is the 2000 Raptors. They weren't amazingly consistent, but it was always a thrill watching T Mac and VC run the fast break together.

    Even though the Raps have been fairly miserable, I still kinda resent the idea that we are as bad as the Grizzlies were in Vancouver.
    I'm very sorry, the Grizz were a lot worse than the Raptors.

    You had Carter. And TMac

    We had, can't even remember right now.

    I got cheap tickets though.

    I don't think this team is as good as their record or place in the standings reflect.

    I would rank this team about on par with the Bosh-lead playoff teams, a notch below the VC-lead playoff teams.

    Although the makeup of all 3 teams was quite different (VC = superstar, Bosh = inside-out, DeRozan = jump shots), I do see several commonalities as well:
    - balanced starting lineup with good ball movement
    - good team defense
    - 2nd unit can be an advantage when healthy

    I just think the VC-lead teams were the best because of his individual skill, the veteran leadership, interior presence and deep bench.

    In a best-of-7 series, I think I might even give the Bosh-lead teams the 2nd spot, because of Bosh's interior play (aggressive Bosh from 2007 would eat Valanciunas & Amir for breakfast, especially surrounded by several good 3pt threats, given the current Raps' weak 3pt defense).
    Experts at NBA radio think this year's team has overachieved due to coaching . The team may be best TEAM ever but talent wise I agree with above comments.
