Not only are the Toronto Raptors (the once laughing stock of the NBA) the 3rd seed in the NBA (behind the three-peat seeking Miami Heat) they are also the Atlantic Division Champions. Like most sports fans from Toronto I had no idea that we actually could produce a winning squad in the millennial era. i am pleasantly surprised.
Truthfully I have known how good they were all season, I just didn’t believe it. Could be a combination of the Raps Colangelo era, the hoax that was the Jays last year or everything I know about the Leafs. This team are not those teams. This team has heart. This team has swagger. This team can actually win!
This is actually the 2nd title for the Raptors, which makes them the winning-est Toronto franchise in the millennial era. Scary. Although they actually won the division on a day they lost, they just won their franchise best 48th game and that is equally as awesome.
“Captain” DeMar DeRozan led the unveiling of the latest banner in the ACC which is appropro since he will be leading them to their first 2nd and hopefully 3rd round win. Oh yeah I’m fully on the wagon now!
He then followed it up with this…
DIRTY Double D!!!
In order for me to fully get on this b’wagon I need a shirt. Hey T-Ross where can I cop one of those?
Expect a lot more Red Dino posts in the near future, unless they lose and then well back to comic books and wrestling and all that nonsense.
