Four games? Five games? Does anyone care?
THE ENTIRE WORLD (except them the North) wanted to see the Miami Heat play the Cleveland Cavaliers in the Eastern Conference Finals.
Look, we all understand that LeBron is about to make his sixth straight NBA Finals appearance. That’s all well and good. But if we had to watch it again, couldn’t we at least have gotten some entertainment to go along with it?
Seeing those fist-pumping “Miami Heat fans” get all riled up about LeBron playing on his former home court would have been great on many levels. Sure, the Cavs would probably still win in five or six games (especially with Hassan Whiteside injured), but one LeBron meltdown in either game three or four would have been great.
Instead, we are going to be subjected to a few weeks of Toronto’s muddy offense, with Lowry and DeRozan trying—and failing—to keep pace with the star power of Cleveland. It’s not going to go well for them the North. It’s going to be sad.
And in 20 years, when people look back on this season, they will say “Wow, the Raptors were actually good that year!”
And I will say, “ehhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh.”
Has there been a more underwhelming, less intriguing conference finals team than Toronto? Their uninspiring backcourt, the whole Drake thing, and their happy-go-lucky fans are a tired act.
Maybe they will go bonkers in game three or four and steal one for Canada. Probably not.
Prediction: Cleveland in four.
