    People may not care to watch the Spurs, but everyone respects them
    It's funny how we tend to not let go of the "old stories" we tell ourselves. The Spurs played a very different style of game last year and were much more fun to watch. Hard to imagine, but last year they were #1 Offensive Rating, #2 PPG. Who'd have ever thought, and they seem to be scoring in bunches again this preseason.

    Are you saying that it was more profitable for MLB to cancel an entire season, than have 2 Canadian teams in the World Series?
    Actually it was not an entire season that was cancelled. It was the last half of the season if I'm not mistaken. Also yes it is more profitable because in my opinion, they make millions of dollars on tv viewing. What american in their right mind will watch two Canadian teams in the World series. No american income coming in the american ballparks, american cities, etc.

    Thirdly, Can you tell me of any time in any professional sports history where they cancelled a season after half way through it?

    So.....zero revenue (in a cancelled season) is better than limited revenue (in an all-Canadian World Series)?

    Don't have insider access, but Hollinger ranks Toronto 12th in the East (with a 33-49 record):

    1) Miami
    2) Indiana
    3) Boston

    Seems par for the course. I'd be shocked to see any American predictions that gives the Raptors the benefit of the doubt.
