It was a pathetic display only rivaled by the sixers this year. These two teams don't even belong in the playoffs, and I'll be happy to watch them get knocked out to avoid watching their continual failures during games.

The 76ers have the inexperience excuse....the Raptors don't have that....they folded once again when they saw Lebron. Lowry's facial expression after Lebron hit the game winner in game 3 says it all....deer in the headlights.

Yeah, San Francisco is the toughest region of the country. They will beat you to death with their beige wall paper!

The Raptors haven't seemed like the best team in their conference at any point. As a club, their pattern reminds me a bit of what we saw from the Sidney Moncrief / Marques Johnson Bucks. They has a couple of very nice All Star pieces, but lacked a third scorer and a key stopper for the conference's most dominant players of the era (Erving, Bird.) The front line got beat down too by Philly and Boston as well.

The DeRezan is NOT a superstar.
Lowry should not be al allstar.
Ibaka is washed up.

Congratulations to Casey for squeezing out 59 wins from this squad.

I didn't think that anyone in this year's playoffs could embarrass themselves as much as Portland. Toronto said, "Hold my syrup."

Raptors were just consistent and healthy in the regular season. Clearly the third best team in the conference on talent, and dd and Lowry too redundant.

I doubt a better coach would change the outcome. What they need is a roster overhaul to better match Lebron, although most teams face that same dilemma except for the Warriors.

Right on point. Also shows that the east is still very weak. Derozan can be shut down with planning.

Anyone who actually knew basketball knew that Toronto had very little chance versus Lebron. Derozan is an overrated superstar who puts up empty numbers in the regular season, and Lowry can't take over a game.

Weak ass team which would have been beaten by any of the West's top 5 or 6 teams.

And the Hawks were a 1 seed a few years ago. Touch competition for Lebron out east.

The celtics might take a game
