Post facto analysis is so darn easy

I mean, how many champs in any sport just roll to the title? It does happen; the 2005 White Sox, 1989 49ers, 75-76 Canadiens, and 90-91 Bulls were never in any trouble. But most championships have their tight moments.

It's not that the Raptors were unusually lucky to win. As NBA champions go they weren't a weak example at all; they are at worst middle of the pack among champions, a truly championship level squad. It's just that ALMOST ALL champions are at least partially lucky.
Providing useless posts since 1999!
