    The West will be the biggest challenge if they are able to win the East again. What's everyone else's thoughts? If you haven't seen my video, look above! :)

    I wouldn’t assume the Bucks make it to the East Finals.

    The Bucks are very beatable in a series. I’m not sure they make it past Miami.

    If the Raptors stay healthy and play their game, I’d bet on them to beat everyone but the Clippers.

    Were they eliminated from the playoffs?

    There is a path but it's a remote one. Best chance is Milwaukee continues to flounder and they meet the Lakers - against whom they seem to match up well - in the finals.

    Of course they can. Whether or not they will is another story.

    Remind me of the 2004 Pistons. No upper tier players but two guys on the cusp and a great supporting cast.

    The NBA is wide open this year. There are probably 6 teams that can win it all this year, including the Raptors. Siakam needs to get it going again on offense though, he hasn't had his usual touch in the bubble.

    I decided to have a little fun and look at the Raptors, Maple Leafs and Blue Jays star trios and make a ranking as to which I'd rather have right now. Hint: I think Raptors fans will be happy.

    I would take the Leafs trio of Matthews, Marner, Tavares for the fact that together they could form arguably the best offensive line in hockey...

    Lowry is 34 years old, Vanvleet is, at best, a role player on a championship team, and Siakim isn't likely to end up among the truly elite in his league the way Matthews is trending...

    Baseball players tend to have volatile and unpredictable careers, so despite their youth and talent, the Jays' trio are the least likely to reach their potential...

    I mean they could. Pascal needs to get going a bit but they are missing that true superstar that the other top teams have (LeBron, Giannis, Kawhi). I wouldn’t be shocked to see them out of the East though, I still would bet Bucks but Raps are up there.

    I think Fred certainly played better than a role player last year. Might have been our third most important player in the finals.

    I just meant he's a complementary player, not a star...

    Well he’s not the star of the team I suppose, but he certainly has been one of our best players even on a Championship team. He was clearly a top 3 player against GS in the finals and has been our best player so far against the Nets. I just don’t feel he gets enough credit.
