That’s not how validation works.


Not sure if you are referring to a dictionary definition, but showing the Warrior injuries in the highlight package shown to the "NBA World" at the award show is crystal clear in saying to everyone that the Raps won because of Warrior injuries.

A video from the league doesn’t matter. As long as us fans and the organization knows we were better who cares what the Americans try to spin it off as?

You're right it doesn't matter to us but when the image of the Raptors' championship win pushed in mainstream media that we won because of the injuries further validates the Raptors do get disrespected in contrast to US based teams.

Yeah, we can say it's an insecurity issue the Raptors fan base has but when you're constantly viewed as a "lesser" or "non-deserving" team, it gets very tiring on a fan base.

At the end of the day, Raptors are the champs... just a little love here and there would be nice.
