    Delon? PG is the most common position now so I'm sure we can find someone solid when Lowry expires. FVV has been good but he'd be our best asset to get another guy if needed. Just hope doesn't end up like Powell where he was probably a guy a lot of teams wanted in the summer but his stock dropped.

    Cavs are down. This might decide who is 3rd seed. They play crap teams the rest of the way.

    Bebe deserves more minutes.

    I don't really see Delon as a PG anymore. He can play that position, along with SG and SF, but I see his assets being a better fit as a secondary ball handler.

    Delon was so much better last year at passing it to the weak side. He misses so many reads now.

    Congrats to the Raptors. This has been a fun season. I never thought I'd see the day the Raptors finish first place.

    It’s a great accomplishment and a very long journey to get hear! I’m glad the organization stuck with it a la spurs formula. Keeping this core and coach for this long together has proven that chemistry takes time and building character together only makes you stronger down the road. Some may like this but we owe colangelo a lot for being in this position. Are very core DeRozan Lowry and Jonas were all picked by him. I believe he envisioned this long ago and doesn’t get the respect he deserves. I also think Masai did an amazing job with sticking with them but more specifically not giving up on Jonas. In the end he did not pull the trigger and sell him. Look what we have accomplished and I feel DeRozan and Jonas have not reached there ceilings.

    It’s clear to me LeBron will play the remaking games to favour the schedule in the playoffs. He has done this the past few years imo. He is looking for Indiana first round and raps second. Mentally he knows he is in DeRozans head and more specifically the raptors head. The time has come and if DeRozan can find a way to believe and the team can find a way to believe they can defeat LeBron and the Cavs. I believe the key to beating the Cavs is playing one on one physical on LeBron but more importantly not letting love hit those threes. If we take away loves threes we win the series. Mind you we need Ibaka, miles and DeRozan to hit there’s.

    Ibaka's play is pivotal. He has to be able to stretch the floor. It was nice to see Ibaka finally have a good game. He looked like the guy we envisioned. Hopefully he can build off that.

    The Raptors are 8-0 when Ibaka scores 20 or more points.

    Kinda sad that he only scored 20 points 8 times this year though.

    They just share the ball so much. He averages the third most PPG on the team. Only one guy over 17 PPG on the squad.

    Even Jonas has had 12 games of 20+. However, Lowry has only scored 20+ in 21 games this season, and he is option #2 on this team.

    When Ibaka is fresh ( which he will be in the playoffs) he is still a good 2 way PF.

    And the stretch PF this team needed for years.
