They traded playoff choker DeRozan for the 3rd best WS/48 player in NBA history, behind some guys named Jordan and Lebron.


Playoff Kawhi will be something else to watch.
It’s crazy how quick they turn on you.

Shortening up the bench should be the way to go. Don't give other team a chance to catch up.

If theres something about Raptors I'd worry about its turnovers. They've struggled in that area during season.

They'll be using Gasol more and with him on the floor they don't turn the ball over nearly as much. In fact, the point differential per 100 possessions with him on the floor is outstanding.


Anywho, my first round picks in the East:

Milwaukee in 4
Toronto in 5
Philly in 6
Boston in 6

Am I living this life changing basketball fan time right now....??

Or is it going to wash, rinse, repeat, same old door mat raptors.....

Is Kawhi the chosen one ?

Is Kyle Lowry still there?

Did they add Jeremy Lin?

Re: 2019 Eastern Conference Playoffs - 1st Rd Discussion Thread

Bucks in 4
Raptors in 7 ( I still don't trust em)
76ers in 6
Celtics in 7 It's honestly in the C's best interest to just mess around and lengthen the series just in case they can get smart back sometime in round 2.

What about them dont you trust?

Gasol,Kawhi,Green all added. Gasol and Green likely in starting lineup with Kawhi.

Green has been hottest 3pt shooter since deadline. Gasol turned Raptors into one of top passing and 3pt shooting teams in the league.

Siakam is one guy in series I could see struggling since he struggled vs Magic during season.

For the long term success for the Raps this postseason Siakam has to be the clear number 2 option. That's the way he's played all year and he needs to maintain that to keep the Raptors offensive momentum going IMO.
