Wayward Ditch Pig
If the Raptors ran into Lebron in the 1st round every year instead of Washington or Indiana....I mean the Raps won a bunch of playoff rounds and kept running into LeBron. Not sure that's a great comparison.
Call me when the Leafs lose to a bad team in the playoffs before we go down this road. The overall point was though that the Raptors developed a reputation, won a title, and still haven't shaken that reputation. Waiting for the media to treat your team rationally is a bad strategy. They live on tropes and bullshit.
