Default National Post: "Raptors are not a serious team"

... Ugh, a few crappy games and the media is back at it again. This time Bruce Arthur from the National Post is ripping the team, by calling out Bosh on whether or not he's all that and a "pack of Ding-Dong's".

Apart of me agrees with him, but not entirely. What do you guys think?

Chris Bosh is a great player in the making, but you can't even pencil him in on the all-star team this season. LeBron, meanwhile, is going to be on the short list for the MVP award for another decade or so. And that is the difference between getting the No. 1 pick in the 2003 draft, and the No. 4.
