So if Kawhi Leonard, Marc Gasol, and Fred VanFleet had gone down to injuries and the Warriors had won, we wouldn't be talking about how injuries were a factor for the Raptors? Sure, nobody's healthy at the end, but we're talking about two of their three best players going down to injuries. That's a factor. It just is.

I don't care whether anyone remembers - I'm just talking about it because injuries clearly did factor in this series. None of that takes away Toronto's championship or their accomplishments over the course of a season.
