LeBron James Sweeps the Toronto Raptors, Proving How Dominant He Is
LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers, just swept the Toronto Raptors.
In what was many expected to be a competitive series, it proved to be the opposite, as the Raptors was beaten to a pulp, with the Cavs trouncing them for a blowout win, 128-93.
It was a rather embarrassing series for the Toronto team, as they were projected to be competitive in the playoffs, as the team managed to be the no.1 seed by leading the Eastern Conference during the regular season, however, all turned to naught.
Which is why according to sources, the Toronto Raptors are in for a major shakeup. Raptors president of basketball operations Masai Ujiri, addressed these exact same sentiments a year ago.
Ujiri said, “to me, making the playoffs is nothing,” and with what just happened, he is absolutely right.
The president further added, “Because we’ve done what we’ve done so many times and it hasn’t worked,” Ujiri said, “it’s easy to defend, in my opinion, when you play one-on-one. It’s predictable. We feel we have to go in another direction. I don’t know what it is. Maybe it will be the new thing in the league that wins. … We’re trying to be progressive thinkers, and not just continue to pound, pound, pound on something that hasn’t worked.”
It’s not hard to imagine the frustration of the team, as they have completely done all they can to come back this season more competitive than ever. However, it’s worth noting that their changes yielded results, as they manage to improve in every facet of their game, resulting with them becoming the number 1 Eastern Conference team.
Unfortunately, the changes didn’t do much when they needed it the most and was swept by LeBron James, and company.
And with the result of the Raptors’ 2017-2018 season, the shakeup is inevitable.
