The Raptors werenít demonstratably better than most of the teams they beat last year. No, they donít play as consistently well as the Bucks. They looked pretty good beating the Lakers when they had all those injuries and Siakam was on point. The Raptors have a tougher schedule than many.

There are eight to ten great teams in the league now, but not all of them are incumbents and have a 10-12% chance. 20% is wildly optimistic, sure. But 2%? You thought I was being wildly optimistic when I said the Raptors would be 56-26, and 538 called something like 47-48 wins. Still looks right to me.
