I'm no basketball genius, but I think playing Ibaka - a guy who's actually good - would have been better than what Nurse did. I don't get it.

Not having Gasol or Ibaka on for that free throw was a huge mistake.

Gasol and Ibaka are the likely candidates. Fred's contract is up too, but they obviously want him back.

Well, we don't know yet. Siakam is getting a huge raise and the Raptors are obviously big game hunting this offseason, particularly being after Giannis. If they miss out on all the big names, he could be back.

That's next year. This year is about opening up cap flexibility while simultaneously trying to build a roster that Giannis will want to join next year.

Right, sorry. This year is trade for Giannis or tread water. In the tread water scenario those guys could be back on one year deals.

Why? Even if Milwaukee were willing to do that (they aren't) you wouldn't have enough around Giannis to win. The Raptors should not move any core pieces to bring Giannis aboard, just hope he tests the market and sign him then.

Given everything Ujiri has preached since he took over the Nuggets, the plan will be to build an extremely strong playoff team and wait to acquire a superstar. That was his plan with Iguodala and Kawhi. I wouldn't put it past him to do the same with Giannis but I don't see that being realistic. More likely scenario is use 2021, with all of it its uncertainty, to evaluate the pieces they have, accrue cap space, and figure out what to do with Kyle beyond.

Nurse with the well deserved extension. He's going to be a huge piece for the Raptors and Canada basketball going forward. Would be cool if he turns into our own Carlisle/Pop/Spoelstra

Watching the Miami-Boston game, I really think we could've taken them. If Siakam just gives us 18-20 a game we're there right now, ugh

Deep runs under LeBron don't count. This year's run is the first thing Spoelstra's accomplished.

Also made it to the Conference finals in 15-16 after LeBron. I think people shit on him but he’s a good coach. In the NBA, good is better than 90% of what’s out there.

Nurse is already better, just hope he has the longevity.

I'm fucking loving this







:donger:

Fuck those guys. I don't have ill will towards Kawhi at all, but I do feel like he kinda deserves this after he left two great squads with a great cast and coaching around him to go to the Clippers, and force their hand in trading for PG, a renowned choke artist. Doc Rivers is also an overrated bum who was the coach for 23% of 3-1 chokes in NBA history, yet Kawhi said he 'wanted an experienced coach' after he signed with the Clippers. Then you have idiots like Beverley and Lou Will acting like they won the championship before it actually even happened. The most hilarious thing is that the Clippers have pissed away their entire future for this, and Kawhi and PG both have player options next summer so now there's even more pressure on them.

Clippers could have just held on Gallinari, Shai and all those 1st round picks and would have been a better team this year.

Masai said in his presser today that he hasn't discussed an extension with the team, but who knows if that is actually true.

Masai said he's focusing on the other stuff that's pending before he gets to his own extension, like the Webster deal, the Nurse extension (which was just completed), and trying to come to terms with FVV and Serge. Good leadership if you ask me.

He’s also said this in the past. He feels it’s key for a leader to take care of everyone else then themself.

Spoelstra? wtf.

Doing a great job outcoaching the media darling Brad Stevens. Although he's used a bit of tactics from Nurse's playbook on how to guard Kemba.

Miami looks fantastic, they move the ball so well and play very unselfish basketball. The way that Herro and Robinson help create spacing, I hope we can do with Thomas next year.
