    Why Do The #1 East Toronto Raptors Get No Respect For Their Chances

    Has nothing to do with Canada vs U.S.
    The problem is how the core of this team has preformed in the playoffs, they have been a high seed before and bounced by teams like the nets in the first round. Untill Lowry and Derozen get over that hump they will always be judged as a good regular season team

    Because ppl still believe LeBron & the Cavs will be able to flip the switch come playoff time.

    Might not be the case this year.

    This coming from a celtics fan. Ive been betting them to win east +240. Its way too good price. Raps over celtics in ecf in my opinion. Cavs might not even have homecourt in first round lol

    Has everything to do with the fact their Canadian,what have the Rockets or Celtics done in the last few years but get battered in the playoffs by the Warriors and Cavaliers respectively,and yet still get more hype.

    regular season 1 win at a time basketball isn't the playoffs, beating the Cavs on a random Wednesday night in Feb. isn't anywhere near the same as beating them/Lebron 4 games in 10 days ish

    Because the core is the same that has done nothing in the playoffs.

    east is so bad this year though so they could get it done.

    The only reason is past post seasons.

    The Raptors are clearly the best team in the East, and it's really not even close. I stick them in between GOlden St and Houston for #2.

    They never prove anything in the playoffs? We all know regular season and playoffs are totally different- win in playoff and earn respect - nobody cares about the regular season

    Lebron taking weaker teams to the finals before !! Gotta be a foo to bet against the king come playoff time !! Don’t fall in love with the regular season - it doesn’t translate wins come playoff time !!

    They do have a much better bench this time. The issue for me is lowry and DeRozan get tight in the playoffs down the stretch

    Can't count out the Raptors if they get home court in any series in the East... If they face a healthy Warriors team in the Finals though they will get spanked.... I'd say the Raptors probably win the East though.. Cavs are reeling.. Boston is beatable as well.

    Trump may impose tariff of one game per series for canadian teams vs usa teams... unless he gets a more favorable nafta result

    this would also apply to NHL

    Being a Raptors fan, this season just feels different. I had zero confidence last year heading into the Cleveland series, and it played out exactly how I expected. Our bench has improved dramatically.......in terms of efficiency numbers, they have got to be #1 in the NBA. Derozan and Lowry are healthy, and well rested......been tonnes of games where they aren't even stepping on the floor in the 4th quarter. And Derozan has changed his game......he has reduced his mid range looks big time, stepped out behind the line, and hitting at a good clip. This team is brimming with confidence right now....just hope it translates in the post season this year.

    Worst thing that could happen to the NBA is for them to let the refs fix it so Lebron goes to finals again. They would get swept in Finals, blowouts. At least Toronto or Boston could win a game or two and make it a series.

    Besides raptors are actually favored to get to the NBA finals so they are getting respect from Vegas but not from u.s. media

    Cavs look horrible right now, Lebron has nobody and this team sucks.. He's older now and can't do it all by himself this go around I don't think... I like this Raptors team this year to come out of the East with the home court advantage..

    Take this future now.. It's money..
