Found this article today. It speculates that the Raptors were headed for success and glory in 2007 until they swapped the team intro music from Renegades of Funk to Vertigo by U2. Personally I thought Renegades was by far the best Raps intro song ever.
The article is here...
The points made in the article are pretty interesting. Garbo was injured. The teams record faltered. It even makes a great point about how Mo Pete's miracle shot against Washington was actually a bad thing.
It also says that the same thing happened to the Montreal Canadiens in 2008 and will happen to the Canucks in 2011 because both used The Streets Have No Name.
Hocus Pocus... probably. But still interesting
