This brings me up to a team like Toronto. Toronto took Boston to the brink and should have won that series. This whole notion that just getting in and winning one round is all that you can strive for without top end talent is ludicrous.
Are you ignoring other things, though, like the fact that LA was packed with top end talent, as are Pittsburgh, Chicago, and many other perennial contenders.
