The finish line to one of the more improbable seasons in franchise history is just over the horizon for the Toronto Raptors.
The only difference this time around is that there isn't 18 holes of golf, sandy beaches and several weeks of rest and relaxation beyond the ribbon. There's just more basketball.
Currently holding a 2.5-game lead over the Brooklyn Nets (34-31) for the top spot in the Atlantic Division, the Raptors (37-29) find themselves just a month away from their sixth postseason appearance.
This season has had everything: blockbuster trades, epic comebacks, awful defeats, highlight-reel dunks and even an All-Star appearance. The Raptors' roster has a united front, having applied a team dynamic where it's never about the glory of one, but the success of all.
It's translated in the win column. Toronto has 37 wins, which is three more than the Raptors had in all of 2012-13. When it's all said and done, we may be calling this the best Raptors team we've ever seen.
There have been so many key contributions from so many players that it makes ranking each individual against one another all the more difficult. Statistics, accomplishments, minutes played and roles in the rotation over the course of the year will all play a factor.
