Raptors' wandering eye checking out playoffs

A sort of strange article from the Seattle Post-Intelligencer.

Quote:
If the Toronto Raptors were courting the playoffs, one may observe a game of hard to get. The playoffs don't need the Raptors, or else that is what they would have you believe. After all, there are more than a dozen suitors, and the playoffs don't wait on anyone.

For the Raptors, perhaps there is some residual hurt still stemming from the Vince Carter missed shot that spoiled the most successful basketball team this city has experienced. Since then, the Raps have played the role of jealous ex- boyfriend, unable to move beyond the past and settling for mediocre alternatives to pass the time.

Unfortunately, every year the Raps actually get invited to the dance, they get dumped before the first song is over. Not an entire loss when you figure most high school dances start with Mariah Carey, end with Mariah Carey and are filled with songs that make you say "Is this Mariah Carey?" No offense to Mariah, just an observation.

But this isn't high school, so analogies have as much relevance here as a chaperone - they won't affect the outcome. This 2009-2010 Raptor version is much different than years past, and should be evaluated accordingly.
