  • Is Toronto worst 3rd seed EVER?

    Paul @Paul__Dawkins
    Does Toronto finish with the 3rd seed in the East, or do the Bulls overtake them?


    Jorge Sierra @hoopshype

    I'd go with Toronto. They don't have a particularly tough schedule. Final six games are against Milwaukee (twice), New York (twice), Detroit and Philadelphia. Those could easily be six wins.

    No disrespect to the Raptors, but they may be the worst No. 3 seed I've seen since I started covering the NBA. What they are accomplishing is commendable, but Toronto being so high in the standings is very much a reflection of the sorry state of the Eastern Conference.

    A dose of reality or hating just to hate?

    Umm don't look now but the Bulls are behind us. Nothing comes easy. As for this writer, he's running out of things to hate about the team. As it stands he'd probably hate universal health care too while he's at it.

      This writer sounds like an douche, he's saying were the worst 3rd seed ever eh? Well I don't think the raptors control what's happening in Detroit, New York, Brooklyn, Cleveland. Those teams stink and we took advantage of them

        dose of reality. We (raps) haven't proved anything yet, and yeah this writer has a point - EC is full of shit.

        Why should random writer start hating on us?

        It's all about freaking future...I'm really afraid what's going to happen next year and two years after.. If we make playoffs this year and then miss 5, 6 years in a row..

        Ok, ok, I've got to admit. I'm trying not to think about future for now, coz it was loOOooong time ago I've enjoyed raps victories so much. I'm gonna leave our executives to sort out future stuff. let's hope they have a plan how to change this franchise's culture...

        Honestly speaking, my left brain still wants to get a future star from this year's draft ( that's not happening I know )..

          most of us wanted a star from this draft even Masai Ujiri but this team started overachieving and now were the 3rd seed and possible looking to advance to the second round

            I'm not worried. MU said in his trade deadline presser that when he made the Gay trade, he was prepared for both situations (getting better vs. getting worse). I have faith in his word.

              I think it's fair to say. It's just not a reflection on us, it's a reflection on the state of the Eastern Conference due to injuries (Chicago, Atlanta, Boston, Knicks), tanking (Boston, Philly, Orlando, Bucks) and teams that have always managed to find a way to screw up continuing to screw up (Knicks, Cavs, Pistons).

                There are so many reasons why this isn't worth discussing.

                The most glaringly obvious being that the playoffs haven't happened yet.

                Sports and doses of reality will never be friends.
                This team has abundant reasons for optimism and abundant reasons for pessimism, and you just choose your bottle.

                  Fine.
                  I choose a bottle of alcohol.

                    No, with sports it's always a bottle of alcohol. You just choose a celebratory rum/tequila type, or a depressed whiskey

                        Every team in the NBA has a record that's partly padded by wins over weak Eastern Conference teams. That includes us, but also every record this season. Are the Pacers the worst #1 seed by the same standard? Maybe we win 48-50 this year if we finish strong. Is that bad? Is that the same as 8th in the West? Is that bad? I look at some of our stats, and they're top 10 in many categories. If we were 18-28 in most categories, and still in the 3-4 position, you'd have an argument. Who is #1 in 4th quarters? We've got winning records in both home and away, not just home games. Are we a 5-7th team, who's lucked into a season where that level gets you 3rd? Probably, but any games we win against the 76rs, are the same as wins for any good team from the West.

                          It's fair until proven otherwise.
                          Welp, that sucked.

                            Jorge Sierra has been covering the NBA forever? Is he the "Ming the Clam" of sports bloggers?
                            If we knew half as much about coaching an NBA team as we think, we"d know twice as much as we do.
