    Raps gets no respect!

    http://espn.go.com/nba/standings so was on ESPN and watching the standings. I know it's only pre-season but as it is, and please correct me if I am wrong but didn't the raps win 3 games in a row? The standing says the won 1 game not 3 in a row. If you can have 1 game in a row that is. ) I checked other teams and they are all up to date. I also know it's not a big deal to most but man, why just the Raps?

    Anyways, just food for thoughts.

    GO Raps Go! Man I can't wait for the season to start to see what happens.

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

    His Eastern rankings (so far):

    1) Miami
    2) Indiana
    3) Boston
    4) Brooklyn
    5) Philly
    6) Atlanta
    7) NY
    8) Chicago
    9) Milwaukee
    10) Washington
    11) Cleveland
    12) Toronto
    Seems par for the course. I'd be shocked to see any American predictions that gives the Raptors the benefit of the doubt.

    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)?

    Are you saying that it was more profitable for MLB to cancel an entire season, than have 2 Canadian teams in the World Series?

    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.

    Agreed. Raps haven't really done anything that warrants respect. Start winning games, and winning games often. Then the fame will follow.

    Just how much money and viewers do you think they would have lost on an all Canadian World Series? Just saying!

    Start winning games and then they will start to make calls against them so the other teams can win. I go back to when Blue Jays won 2 titles and then the next year the Expose was best team in the League and Blue Jays was leading the American League. Just how much money and viewers do you think they would have lost on an all Canadian World Series? Just saying!

    There is no doubt the Raptors don't get respect and to make things worse they have been bad most of their existence. The only way that can change is if they 'start WINNING' and most importantly 'KEEP WINNING'. Lets hope this is the beginning of that.
