The discussion that Toronto has top 5 talent in the starting unit (in the East) isn't that debatable.

I noticed the discussion was, at one point, to disregard a player like Bradley's defensive capabilities. So does the discussion then focus on offensive capabilities? If so, there's a quite a few inefficient players on this squad (Rudy Gay being one of the main culprits seeing how he can halt an offense all together).

Last time I looked, basketball is a team game. You have to have the parts to field a whole, solid unit that both works with the strengths and weaknesses of the others. In and of itself, that alone is talent.

Anyways, there are currently eight teams ahead of Toronto in terms of talent. They're in the playoffs, we're not. It's really simple. And until this team, plays like a team and utilizes their individual talents for the collective whole, it isn't going anywhere fast.
