Masai was also in Africa. There's no bad guy here, it was a move that had to be made. I'd have been pissed if he was traded for futures, but he was traded for a guy that gives us a chance at being in the Finals.........the Finals......

Kawhi was the guy I said I wanted the Raptors to target. I’m just surprised it was a reasonable return.

Ahh derozsn. We once stared awkwardly at each other as he left an elevator and I got in... There's nothing worse than eye contact in those situations.

Just came to post that. 2.2m

Hopefully he works out better than Sullinger. I’ve always liked Monroe but he’s declined very rapidly.

BENCH. MOBBIN'.

If Norm can revert to two years ago Norm, we're gonna be so tight.

Also THIS from the guys that train with him. How did SA not get him?!

As for the cavalcade of the NBA’s elite who have shared the court with him this summer, they too have taken stock of Siakam’s improvement and what could be a monster season ahead of him.

“They love him,” Hines says. “Chris Paul loves him, James Harden loves him. He gets the most praise out of everybody. You hear them saying, ‘Man, he got better.’ He gets the most praise out of anybody that comes through the gym.”

Apparently the Raptors are one of the teams discussing Butler with the Wolves. If they can add him to this roster, I think the pitch to Kawhi on a long term extension becomes alot more realistic.

There's like 10+ teams in on him. What could we realistically offer them?

Who hated him in Chicago? In Minnesota I know he had a rift with Wiggins and Towns over work ethic, but he is far from the only one to get into it with Wiggins because of his lackadaisical nature. I think it speaks volumes that the coach used Butler as the example of how he wants his team to play, and did everything in his power to try and convince him to change his mind about leaving.

It would likely cost OG, a pick and one additional asset on top of Ibaka for cap reasons.

Butler is no nonsense. I think he would fit in with the Raptors just fine...you can criticize the Raptors for many things but work ethic isn't one of them

Kyle-Butler-Kawhi

Hook it to my veins. Having said that, no on OG. Do it again where it's Delon and a pick.

Woulda been nice to have a Kawhi-Lowry-DeRozan tandem, but was never in the cards. I like the team we have here Barry.

DeRozan and Kawhi together doesn't make much sense from a spacing perspective, and frankly it diminishes alot of what Kawhi brings defensively.

This is the only sports thing I have to cheer about right now.

Kawhi looks rusty with his shot but it’s coming along. This is a scary defensive team. So many guys can defend multiple positions.

How can you not want to stay if you're Kawhi, really. World class city, all-world facilities, one of the youngest teams with pieces that weren't gifted by the Nets, but by good drafting.

Also for Kawhi, weed is legal here. Come for the titles, stay for the weed.

Ibaka is butt. Blocks shots but is just terrible offensively. Not thrilled with him being used to close out the game.

Kawhi is learning what the Raps have to deal with by not getting any fouls but called on a bunch of trash. Everyone suddenly forgetting how to hit a free throw better not be a trend.

He has zero basketball fundamentals. I would love to see him complete a basic dribbling drill with some pylons....

It is so obvious watching Ibaka that he is not the same age as on his passport. Prime Ibaka was a defensive stud who could play within an offense and knock down a high percentage of his shots. This version is a far cry from that.

Yep he's definitely like 8 years older than his listed date. A guy who just turned 29 and hasn't really had any major debilitating injuries shouldn't look like this.

Paul Pierce choking in the post game. And he must have gone blind because those glasses are sitting way too high on his head.

The Raptors are the second best team in the NBA. The Celtics are good, but overrated.
