Maccabi Tel Aviv, the Euroleague champions of the past two years, defeated the Raptors today, at the Air Canada arena 105 - 103

ha!

Maccabi are going to play the Orlando Magic this wednesday.

well, the Raptors are considered weak in NBA standards, but still, its a very nice achievment for the Israeli team, the game was played under NBA rules and in an NBA court, giving the home side all the advantage.

maybe Maccabi Tel Aviv should be added to the NBA ? they take the israeli championship every year now, and recently they have started taking the euro titles aswell. Maccabi could fit nicely in the NBA, they might even reach the top 16 for the playoffs

Hannibal, you do know that Toronto is probably the worst team in the NBA, yes? [Smile]

It dosen't matter if it's the best team in the NBA or the worst, all matters is that a European team won in the America.
Don't forget that next week Maccabi is going to play against Orlando Magic, and then we will see who's the best team (which is Maccabi of course).

yes well, i have no delusions of grandeur

but if maccabi will play a season in the NBA, the level of the team will improve greatly. and we do have some NBA quality players - hack indiana pacers bought Sharas

and there are Parker and Baston
