Giannis just isn't ready...too indecisive, nerves getting to him. Hope he goes 200% this summer to get a go-to move, etc. Nobody else really ready either to step up. I thought Middelton would get open for 3 sometime.

That block by Giannis, though...damn. I could see him being salty about nobody getting the loose ball, as that put-back layup by Siakam was the biggest shot I felt.

Proves you just can't lose Game 5 at home, or let a big lead go away when your season is on the line.

Regarding the Finals, I'm just happy to see Durant v. Leonard again. Hopefully, both will be healthy. Rest until Thursday for the banged-up Kawhi, and reports say Durant should be ready to go. I don't expect the Raptors to win, but they came together impressively here and players other than Kawhi stepped up in these last few games.

I did not know that the Raptors have the superior w/l record, so that could be pivotal. I could easily see the Warriors going down 0-2. Just winning one game at home will boost the Raptors chance to win it all. If it becomes a dogfight, the final game of the season would be in Toronto. Can't wait to see the defensive action by Kawhi and Danny Green. I could see Ibaka doing some damage on D, or Gasol getting hot. Siakam is the x-factor, IMO.

Prediction: Raptors in 5!!!
Raptors win a close Game 1
Raptors win a less close Game 2
Warriors win a comfortable Game 3
Raptors steal a close Game 4
Raptors win a close Game 5, win championship

If Durant goes off again, so be it. I just hope everybody is healthy, and that it goes at least five games. Raptors definitely have more players with playoff experience, including Finals experience (Green, Kawhi) than the Bucks, so I may have to admit that I've reconsidered my rooting for the Bucks because of their depth.

zn23
05-25-2019, 11:58 PM
After losing to the Cavs last year in embarrassing fashion the Raps had to do 2 important things: Split up Lowry-Derozan, and fire Duane Casey. They did both. Upgraded from Derozan to KL, and upgraded from Casey to Nurse.

But Ujiri also deserves credit for a mid-season move in getting Gasol. I'm still a JV and felt JV was the better player of the two. But I'll admit now that Ujiri's decision was the right one and critical to them getting this far.

This is the best team the Warriors will face in the last 5 years.

Those LeBron teams lacked depth and were top heavy. We saw what happened when they got injured or lost one of their top 3 guys.

This Raps team is deep, they play great defense and hopefully they're getting Anunoby back for defensive purposes. Not that it matters as he's more of a luxury at this point.

Klay just locked up and dominated Lillard and CJ. Klay slowed them both down to average players. Klay out played both on offense as well and was clearly the second best player in the whole series.

Leonard on a bad wheel canít hang with the warriors fire power. Draymond is a different animal.

I can not wait for Draymond and drake to get into it hardcore during a game.I hope this happens. Drake is probably the one person I'd actually root for Draymond to knock the hell out of in a fight.

I can't have Curry in top tier, no matter how brilliant he can be on offense... His D is a liability that coach has to work around. Nobody is ever switching to get LeBron, Leonard, or even KD, guarding them. I think that's why those 3 need to be top tier by themselves.

People who say Curry is a poor defender are not watching he is a fairly good defensive player actually he may not be elilte at that end but it boggles the mind how anyone could call him a liability. Espically then turning around and citing current day Lebron as a better example of defense... yikes do you actually pay attention to the games or just look at the guys body's and make a guessatmate at what you think they must be good or bad at?

He's done it before... Usually keeps Klay in check too, but it'll be interesting to see who he matches up with

Yep.

Pop putting Kawhi on Klay in 2013 playoffs was the difference maker in that series. Klay was completely shutdown in the last 3 games.

Kawhi can take him out of the game and I believe he will.

In 2013. When their coach was garbage. If you put Kawhi on Klay he's going to be absolutely exhausted. And then have to turn around and go at it against Draymond and Klay.

Toronto is going to get crushed.

This is the best team the Warriors will face in the last 5 years.

Those LeBron teams lacked depth and were top heavy. We saw what happened when they got injured or lost one of their top 3 guys.

This Raps team is deep, they play great defense and hopefully they're getting Anunoby back for defensive purposes. Not that it matters as he's more of a luxury at this point.

This Raps team is 8 man deep though.

I feel like the east could be wide open next year for even a team like the pacers... If KL walks and the sixers lose butler that hurts both teams a big amount.... Now you have the bucks that just had the perfect team around giannis and the raptors just put a blue print on him... Just clog the lanes... The bucks will lose their fair amount of players this off season as well.. Can they afford mirotic/lopez/brog/middleton? i feel like 3 of these guys might be gone because someone is going to give brog a huge *** pay day and the bucks will be forced to match.... the east was insane this year.... it could look drastically different next year... this was the bucks year and now they might be in trouble because they are about to lose a ton of shooting.

The bucks are still gonna be great because of giannis but Giannis/Simmons found out the hard way ESP SIMMONS... You need to have a shot in this league to have a shot.

Part of it is that opposing defenses go at him, and although they are fairly unsuccessful with that approach it makes seem like curry is a liability on defense.

But yes, he's definitely a good smart defender and knows how to use his undersized body to get leverage.

If they actually ran plays for Brook in the post, Bucks may have won. They still had him spotting up for threes and setting picks most of the time, and everything else was a broken play or Brook taking advantage of what the defense gave him.

Speaking of defense, Brook was all over the floor covering guys and then dropping back when the ball swung.

Really wanted to see him get to the finals. Heís always been way better than popular opinion gave him credit for.

I feel him , but as usual he's a bit overboard. Who he played against is silly, Philly/Milwaukee were tough opponents. I know he could've played last year, but it is what it is. As someone said during the drama, Kawhi didn't change, the people speaking for him did.

Their two options are run it back or reshape.

On the plus side, with as many expiring contracts as they have (Middleton, Brogdon, Lopez, Mirotic) they will have cap space to play with coming off an ECF appearance. The big issue is, all of those guys were major players. And if they want to run it back, they better hope that they can manage the cap well enough to retain all of them. But chances are Middleton will be offered a max somewhere, Brogdon will get a decent RFA offer, Lopez is going to offered a good contract (and no bird rights), and Mirotic has the chance to get a better contract (they do have non-Bird rights).

They will really need to knock it out of the park replacing Lopez and Mirotic if they keep Middleton and Brogdon. If they let Middleton and Brogdon walk, maybe they bring back Lopez and Mirotic and look for solid role players to fill out the roster.

Sadly for them, I donít think it is possible, at least not after that Bledsoe extension. Middleton will command at least the max. Brogdon might get a good offer but heís an RFA so I assume they match. Lopez played out if his mind this year and Bucks donít have bird rights. My guess he gets something between $10-15 per. Ditto for Mirotic. Thatís going to be tough to squeeze all those guys, especially for a small market team like Milwaukee.

My fear is they do try to run in back to appease Giannis and sign all these guys and they still come up short in a year and Giannis bolts. There was already an article written that a finals run in 2020 would go a long way in securing Giannis longer turn. The pressure is on in Milwaukee right now big time.

Yea agreed. I mean they can go to the extreme and just throw out the max at someone on the borderline of getting it. Someone like Tobias Harris or Nikola Vucevic. Or do they scale down a bit and chase Bojan Bogdanovic, Danny Green, Jeremy Lamb?

Congrats Raps fans! As a fan of a small market teami couldn't be happier for you guys!! Now to slay Goliath!!

Thanks man! Beating Embiid was definitely sweeter than beating Giannis. Embiid has more overall talent but lacks the drive that Giannis has. I personally like his antics, itís just that instead of putting his head down and working hard he just starts flopping and saying heís hurt after bad games. If Embiid had Giannisí attitude heíd be a magnificent player.

Also are you implying the Raptors are a small market team? Our market is literally a country lol.

Yea agreed. I mean they can go to the extreme and just throw out the max at someone on the borderline of getting it. Someone like Tobias Harris or Nikola Vucevic. Or do they scale down a bit and chase Bojan Bogdanovic, Danny Green, Jeremy Lamb?

I dunno. Feels like they are in kinda no mans land.

Danny Green has already come out and said he wants to stay in Toronto. Despite his post season struggles, Iíd like to keep him around.

Heís a good role player to have. Good defender and can hit an open 3. Good in the locker-room. Any idea what type of contract heíd want?

No idea but I think 2 years 20 mil should get it done. Maybe even less? He seems to REALLY like it here.

I demand 75 percent... all these years its nice to know that our arguing/fighting and so on down the list has actually smartened my annoying but respectable arch villain up... i take the majority of the credit for you being smart enough to place such a bit.... i will forfeit the 75 percent if you just admit right here right now i am your superior and you thank me from the bottom of your heart : )

Thank you for admitting Iím superior than you and you listen to me and learned from me. Thatís why your a half decent NBA poster now because you finally have listened and realized Iím smarter than you


Because of that I am willing to give you the original 25$ I bet and use that good luck charm and my smarts to place a smart bet like I did


Even if the Ws win I feel like I won my bet already :laugh2:

Danny Green is basically the mould for what you want in a 3&D wing. Doesnít demand the ball at all, doesnít take ANY stupid shots and plays great perimeter defence. Weíve been looking for a 3&D wing for years. T-Ross, JJ, DeMarre, CJ etc. Danny is a WAY better fit than any of those guys.

No way Lowry gets moved. Heís the heart and soul of this team and has adapted his game even with his diminishing physical ability. I even see him taking a pay cut after next season just to stick around.

Though they both had labels as chokers there was always one big difference between Kyle and DeMar. Kyle doesnít quit. DeMar got himself ejected in back to back elimination games in 2017 and 2018 against Lebron. He even got frustrated against the Nuggets and got himself ejected this year. Kyle just keeps going until the buzzer. Iím beyond happy that heís finally playing in the finals. He deserves it.

lol I wanted him when we had Covington. Over JJ. I truly feel as though Simmons-Green-Covington-Saric-Embiid could have become one of those teams that you would get so drained on offense that we could have easily scored.

Instead you guys ended up with that. I hate and admire that so much at the same time.

Iíll take your word for it. The contract heís after will be the deal breaker tho. Both him and Gasol.

Gasol already waived a trade kicker and lost 2 or 3 mil when he came here. Heís going to accept that player option though.

The only way Lowry gets dealt is if we blow it up next year but that all relies on one manís decision.

Yea it will all depend on what Kawhi does. Youíre actually set up really well to build a brand new team around him in a years time of he resigns.

He's up and down at this point in his career. He had a couple years of lingering injuries and since then he's been less consistent.

He shot a career best 46% from 3 this year while taking the most 3pt shots per game in a single season. Heís laid an egg all post season but he was the epitome of consistent during the reg season.

In the regular season he also had 11 games where he missed every 3 he took and 10 more where he missed at least 3 of 4 of the 3s he took. He had great games and terrible games, and he had too many bad games to be called consistent.

That said, if he shows up in the finals he could make a big difference as he's one of two Raps with actual finals experience.

Thatís who he has been his whole career. He is a greater that sometimes makes everything and sometimes misses everything and winds up shooting a good %. Him and Robert Covington are the same player

Depending on where you search, Wikipedia, google are suggesting Toronto has surpassed Chicago and Houston in terms of population and consider Toronto right after N.Y and L.A.

Hahaha whatever helps you sleep at night. He's tough when it's Andre Drummond and he owns property in his head but when he runs across a better player he ends up crying and shaking on the court. He's a fake tough guy man, just like KG. LMAO at you thinking it has anything to do with Mitchell or you. I don't like Embiid because he's a loudmouth douche and seeing him get put in his place and severely outplayed by a guy who never says anything is poetic justice especially since the shot was right in his grill!

i mean being out played by the best or 2nd best player in the world in your 2nd ever playoffs isnt something to really be sad about lmfao... it took a game 7 buzzer beater from the best team in the conference with the best player in the world to beat the sixers and joel... man it hurts :rolleyes:

Well he was sure sad about it! Pretty sure those weren't tears of joy lmao!

I gotta get the rasing in while I can. There's a high probability that Embiid uses that experience to finally get his **** together and get in top notch shape and work on what few flaws he has. And that'll be bad news for the rest of the NBA.
