    He did call a timeout when they cut it down to 8.

    They blew the 4th because they were tired.

    Probably played a factor. Didn’t help that CJ was a bad man all night and that Melo thought it was 2007 when the 4th started. Melo had an amazing quarter.

    That spin move works best when he's driving since it takes advantage of his speed and surprise factor over other PFs. Harder to do that posting up since more time for defenders to react.

    I wonder if we should make a thread dedicated to fantasy. Would you sell high on Randle and attempt to trade for Simmons? Randle is beasting but doesn't provide much in terms of defensive stats.

    Yup! Down the stretch I was hoping they’d lose by 1 point.

    I want to see great games with great individual performances, leading to a loss.

    FVV is officially a SG imo (and a good one) but he would look great in that spot beside Cunningham as a 6’8” PG.

    Season at this point may as well be a wash for y'all Raptors...but 2021 NBA Draft is as deep as it has been in years. As deep as Lebron's draft way back in 2003, because if you see the talent coming out of NCAA and G League and Europe you have names like:

    Cade Cunningham (PG)
    Evan Mobley (PF/C)
    Jalen Green (PG/SG)
    Jonathan Kuminga (SG/SF)
    Jalen Suggs (SG)
    BJ Boston (SG)

    I could go on and on with more names; my point bein this Draft, this upcoming Draft looks good on paper.

    Im not saying we are better without lowry.. I waited a long time before I splurged last year on an authentic lowry. So over the years I have grown to accept the fact he goes down as one of the best/if not the best raptor of all time. But also the trade of him is exciting. Going back to the rudy gay trade on the surface it looked like we were robbed but the return really changed the dynamic of that team and got some really good balance in the team. If you count on siakam, og, fred and now even boucher to go on that upward trajectory. Heck I would be happy if we got a salmons, vasquez, patterson minus hayes lol + picks type of deal to round things out.

    Trade Lowry then to a contender especially if you committed to a full on rebuild and then layin your eggs in one basket as far as the 2021 NBA Draft Lottery and Draft are concerned cuz if you do that and the Raptors end up with the worst record or one of the worst records in the NBA...come Draft lottery ping pong balls could bless you with a top 3 pick and if that happens, you could end up with a franchise altering player like Cunningham, Green, Suggs, Kuminga, Mobley, Boston, etc

    I would be against this type of trade. I don’t think our depth is a problem personally. Depth doesn’t lose you games in crunch time.

    Yeah we can do a fantasy thread, I think a few guys play here.

    Are you doing Roto or H2H ?

    I would say stay with Randle bro. In my league Randle is currently hovering top 15-20 where as Simmons is like 45-50 range.

    But if you’re in a category league Simmons gives more pts across the board.

    That’s an interesting take. Def an option that becomes more realistic as the season progresses and our playoff chances become more dim.

    Another option is always to bring Lowry back on a team friendly contract if he’s up for it, as I think Flynn and FVV can learn a ton from him and his game is aging nicely.

    Actually, I have been the one making a biggest case for Boucher to play since way before the season started...like constantly...lol I didn't just make one random prediction, I have given many reasons as to why I felt this was going to happen if they just let the guy play. Go back if you need to, this thread and the offseason thread are littered with them

    (NOTE: Not saying you didn't say something a long time ago too, but he was 100% correct when he named me the guy that has been calling this "breakout" from Boucher. )
