    As Mayor of "Other" I felt the need to talk to @CBSSports about their poll. #WetheOther

    Poor slighted Toronto. Doesn't matter that the poll was actually made before game 7. Boo hoo stop whining.

    In other news, for the "what do we have to lose in pissing off Lebron crowd", uh. Well. That I'd say.

    Well, that "other" team CBS was referring to showed up to play last night, not the Raptors. Maybe the Raptors will play in the second game.

    This is what I was afraid of, a big blow out. They played pretty well minus the 20-2 run. Then they started forcing 3s that weren’t falling, and I saw fouls that should have been called to put Toronto on the line that weren’t called, but some that were called against Toronto. Not using this as an excuse, but when Toronto gets to the line, they play with much more confidence.

    They played terribly for a big stretch, and I just want JV back. Here’s to hoping he’s back for game 3, but I really doubt it.

    Ok, it’s ok. 0-2 in game 1s the last 4 playoff rounds. 5-0 (6-0?) after a loss this yr. It’s still good, it’s still good.

    Yes, let's mock the Raptors after their most successful season in franchise history. Makes complete sense.

    I will never blame the refs for a loss, but geez I hate basketball officiating. Can’t breathe on Lebron without him getting a foul call. But 31 fouls to 16….Let that sink in. At one point when it was really close, it was 30 fouls to 10 I think they said, maybe 30FT to 10FT, that makes more sense. BUT COME ON. I’m not saying it’s because it’s a Canadian team, I’m sure anyone up against the Cavs have this trouble.


    Toronto has done well, but seem to have a stretch where Cavs just hit the NOS button and the Raps look out of it. Toronto is the better playing team, but the other 3 teams just have so many superstars. David vs Goliath for sure.

    Funny, Toronto was 27th in payroll this yr, and the only team out of the final 4 that won’t be paying the penalty tax next season, which really hampers the 3 other teams from improving. They can keep the same roster likely with the cap raising, but they can’t add to fill holes. Toronto also has 2 picks. They’re that one piece away from it I think. Instead of Derozan, they could have that guy who can win a series, not just a game.

    More so mocking people who think they had a shred of chance in this series, and people who thought pissing off Lebron would benefit. Also, the fact that being a second round team is the "best in team history" is embarrassing. Sure, they're in the third round. They aren't a third round team. Thunder would smash the Raps, so would the Warriors, just as the Cavs are. Hell, the Spurs would probably smash the Raps too, and I bet Portland would have won the series as well.

    Kind've like this, people who don't understand the salary cap is mostly irrelevant in basketball, and superstars impact who wins, not depth. This series isn't even competitive.

    It would be fun to see the Raptors tie it up at 2 games and watch people backpedal. I'd love to see Toronto win this series, but I won't hold my breath (I've tried it watching Fear Factor on TV whenever they have to stay underwater and I'd definitely drown after about 25 seconds).

    Valanciunas has been "upgraded" to game-time decision for game 4 but I think it's just mind games. I doubt he actually plays today.
