Okay. Raptors got rid of Van Vleet. Didn't really sign anyone. And now we have won the home opener and lost 3 straight. Did Masai really think we were going to get anywhere near playoffs without investment in the roster?
Okay so I see you get to win an NBA Cup - whatever that is.
For footy on a national level it's because you play semi-pro or lower league (I guess G teams here) so you get Cinderella stories. It's all NBA teams just playing NBA teams here.
For footy Champions League it's because you get to see your league team go up against another country's league best. This is all the same teams again.
I can see from the league, advertisers, and club owners why they want more games but this is what's killing the NFL - too many games, too many injuries, a drop in quality, and not enough rest.
Ironically MLS is doing a best of 3 playoff this year between a higher and lower seeded team. Typically it's just home and away or lately sudden death. Now it's dragging the already comical playoffs where 66% teams qualify with huge gaps in between game days if you're good and too much playing time if you are the lower seed.
