Bruce Arthur of the Toronto Star after LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers left a vapor trail in wiping out the Toronto Raptors in their own barn in Game 2 on Thursday night:
But after just two games it feels like LeBron has reduced the Raptors to their most elemental selves. He has left a graveyard full of pretenders in the East: the remains of that Boston Celtics title team, the old Derrick Rose Chicago Bulls, the old Paul George Indiana Pacers, the 60-win Atlanta Hawks, and in the last two years the Toronto Raptors. It’s not that they weren’t good teams. They just weren’t great, or great enough.
