I don't know if it was your intention, but you went from defending the Raptors, to justifying the skepticism of the Raptors championship.
lol I didn't mean to but it is the truth. Injuries happen and sometimes that's the difference between winning and losing. I will say this though, people are assuming the lakers and clippers will battle for a championship. I think the warriors will surprise many and go back to the finals.
I will say this, if some of the people here aren't being intellectually dishonest, and really are dumb, they are going to be blindsided when the Warriors become championship favorites by at least next season. It's weird seeing people think the dynasty is over. The Heat dynasty ended for instance(was it even one?) because LeBron knew he could no longer win with an aging DWade and Bosh. KD left because he wanted to play with close friends. At the end of the day, the Warriors still have that other super star, you know, Steph Curry. The Warriors will always be contenders as long as they have their core. Yes, that same core that won a championship before KD. This isn't to rag on KD since we Warrior fans love him and still do for what he did for us. But he was a part of the dynasty. Not all of it.
I don't know if they'll make the Finals this year like you say. I wouldn't put it past them, Warriors can do amazing things. But I will guarantee, all the people who said the Warriors dynasty ended will look like idiots.
