    Respect around the league and Raptors

    I just don't get it when it comes to the raptors and this forum, we got the best bench in the league best home record and better road record than most teams in the league even though we played more away games than the entire league, still everyone looking down on the raptors like we just pretenders, this by far the best team we have ever had and 3 levels above the one we had when we made it to the conference finals, we got like 3-4 guys on our bench who will become allstars in the future thanks to the best gm in the league,

    i swear most these other teams are just hyped up and not recognizing greatness when they see it, if this was the knicks or the nets with our record they would be hyped up to the point there fans saying nothing less than a finals apperance,,,i swear it, but its the raptors and we are just pretenders

    we dont need a superstar to win it all we might not be able to beat lebron but ill tell you we the only team who wont get swept and at least make it interesting and maybe witha little bit of luck maybe next year or so with all our players gettin better we can finally make our first finals apperance and dethrone lebron lol we have the most interesting youngest team in the league and lebron should be on the decline any time soon with lowry ibaka and derozan all locked up for 3 years

    if we played all our young players like philly does we would still have a better record than them, so this team is well off with our mastermind gm, us raps we dont have to purposel tank just to get better players, we will always be a top 5 team staying competitive, its very degrading and horrendous when teams tuck there manhood between there legs and pluck for draft picks lol, we are like san antonio where they just build on the fly and always stay cometitive

    They're built to be solely a regular season team, plain and simple.

    maybe in the past we were just a good regular season team, but times have changed,,

    imo we just lack a defensive anchor and only reason why teams are above us is because they got a better coach, stever kerr would definetly turn this team to be able to stop lebron with the players that we have

    They built the team like that or it just so happens that they haven't had success in the playoffs?

    Eh Kerr's just an ok coach. Easy to look like a great coach when you enter a system that already had all the talent to be a great team when you first take over. If you are referring to a great coach you refer to Pop and that's a given. Raptors would fair better with a higher echelon coach no doubt, but I'm saying they are built like a team who will be successful in the regular season and not so much postseason. There are realistically about 5 teams competing for the championship with maybe 2 with a real shot right now, so don't feel bad.

    You think this team is realistically trying to compete with the big guns of the league? They're trying to sell to their fans that they can be a 50 win team and possibly get to the East Semis at most and not much else. As long as Raptors were the bottom feeders of the league, it's a good selling point and I'm happy for them but you have to get real at some point

    nevver said we were contenders but were definetly not pretenders this year, we are kind of caught in the middle, imo anything can happen in the playoffs,,, just saying the raps do have a chance to make some noise and have a small chance of getting into the finals but conference finals for sure, but next year our team is gonna be scary good like a poor mans golden state team lol

    Old man Wade? Injured Thompson and IT. IT may not be the same guy once he's back. Smith and Thompson over paid role players. Crowder regressing and poorly used. Love is so so. He should of been traded last year. Plays no defense. LeBron shouldering the load all regular season when he's suppose to be coasting till playoffs. Rose and Calderon nothing special.

    Not saying LeBron leaves. But if he did next summer Cavs probably don't even make the playoffs. IT with a bad hip wont be the same speedy slasher. Which is all his game is based on speed. Love couldn't win with the Wolves. Smith and Thompson are dead weight. That Nets pick is like #10 in a top heavy draft with less depth pass top 5.

    5-6 record against teams over .500

    Plus they're two best players are underwhelming playoff performers.

    Kyle Lowry:

    15-16 Regular season: 21/5/6 on 43%, 39% from three
    15-16 Playoffs: 19/5/6 on 40%, 30% from three

    16-17 Regular season: 22/5/7 on 46%, 41% from three
    16-17 Playoffs: 16/3/6 on 46%, 34% from three

    DeMar DeRozan:

    15-16 Regular season: 23/4/4 on 45%
    15-16 Playoffs: 21/4/3 on 39%

    16-17 Regular season: 27/5/4 on 47%
    16-17 Playoffs: 22/5/3 on 43%

    When players like LeBron and Kyrie step their game up during the playoffs, these guys regress.

    This team isn't a threat to Cleveland, not even close.

    Lol every time there's a talk about LeBron's supporting cast people act like Kevin Love is a bum. He is having the most efficient season of his career, putting up 19/10/2 in 29 minutes. He is going to be an all-star.
