Default Raptors second most promising team in Toronto

From the Star

2. The Raptors: Awful basketball team that knows how awful it is, which is really saying something in the “No, no, I’m telling you that black is actually white: world of sporting delusions.

Alone amongst all our clubs, the Raptors know when their sun will rise. That would be next summer, with the arrival of two lottery picks and a dump truck full of free-agent cash.

This frees them to embrace their current awfulness in an entirely refreshing and almost lovable way. They’ve got one year to figure this out and then we turn on them. Again.
And then...

5. The Leafs: Despite their inability to win hockey games, they continued to carry themselves as if they’re doing us all a favour by playing in public.

This is not about the playoffs. It’s about institutional arrogance. If this club were a pal of yours, he’d be the one who’s always explaining to you why you’re wrong.
