    It’s a funny dynamic...raps are a measuring stick for signature wins for teams like the heat , OKC, and anyone else that can get a win in their building..... ..but still remain an invisible team when the contenders are spoken of.... I guess they can it take it as a passive aggressive style compliment
    They have um ranked #4 in the Power Rankings.... with nice comments.

    How much more do you need for what is STILL a super fragile fringe contender???

    ESPN guys are going bonkers right now over the Heat. SAS just picked them as a darkhorse team to upset one of the top teams in the East come playoff time lol.
    Well...I guess that’s that then.....Screaming A has spoken..

    and this weeks newest Dark horse team ..till they lose a few on this road trip ...has supplanted the Sixers, The Bucks, The Pacers as previous teams that would knock off one of the top teams in the east in the playoffs.......Smith must believe his audience has the attention span of a six year old...

    We will not go quietly in the night. We will rage against the dying light. We will study every buzzer beater with intensified might, because somethin with the NBA doesn't smell right.

    From Reddit:

    I’m a Nets fan but I’ve always liked Derozan so I respect the Raptors despite being in the same division. I just want to say that it pisses me the disrespect they get. I was just watching ESPN and they mentioned the Cavs game and a guy said the Raptors are surprisingly good and you probably won’t agree with me but they have a chance of making the ECF. No shit they do! They’re the 2 seed and are 17-4 in their last 21. They acted like it was blasphemy that the 2 seed raptors can make the final 2 in the east. I just wanted to get that out. Good luck tonight!

    Nice to read that from a fan, but I think after years and years we here all know the story, nothing will change. Look at todays coverage of last nights game... Toronto didn't win, Cleveland lost. They don't even use Toronto's name in the headlines. Canada is bad business in the US, it was after GW Jr. Screamed "Buy American" and it will be worse with Trump in control.

    FWIW...the national media is definitely picking up. Tim Bontemps covers basketball well. He's based out of the washington post but seems to dot around the country to be at wherever the big games are. He was here to cover the last two games in Toronto (and wrote pretty good stories for each...that's where the early NBA reply about replay came from)

    I hope the big internet monopolies aren't monitoring us because I'm about to mention the Balls. Only to say that for amusement sake I was about to click on the ESPN item how the Ball brothers didn't score in their second game in Lithuania. Then I thought.....well every time someone clicks on an article they register it and that would encourage more of the nonsense. Good to know Lithuania is treating them like they deserve though. A lot of big bruisers in that league apparently. Like our friendly giant
