Best player and point guard in the East belong to the Raptors.

I have a theory -- purely speculative -- that Lebron went to the Lakers because no one wanted to form a superteam with him. He is supposedly not fun to play with.


You think Kobe and MJ were "fun" to play with? The greats demand perfection, and as far as greats go Lebron actually strikes me as relatively easy going. I think if anything, star players dont like to defer to LBJ. He is the primary ball handler and decision maker on any team he plays for and that can be difficult for some guys to adapt too.

Toronto is the perfect city in terms of giving him that experience of living in a big modern city while still being able to keep a bit of a lower profile compared to places like NY, LA or even CHI that have more rabid media and attention. Only downside could be if he hates cold weather.

Not like he's going to be in the cold weather constantly and downtown Toronto actually stays warmer than the places outside of Toronto. We have a nice little pocket here. I was thinking that dude lost his dad to gun violence, whenever he sees shit in America he might be like, do I wanna live in a country where this is the norm? There's far less racism here, he loves his weed, and it's legal here and like you said a fair bit of anonymity here.

I really hope he stays, but even if not, I've enjoyed every second of him here so far.

It really just depends on how badly he wants to play in LA. If it as much of a desire as the media made it out to be then he is gone no matter what. Either way it was a great trade and this season will be fun.

Well George wanted to play in LA so bad. He also said he would be if he wasn't traded to OKC. Same thing can happen here. Also tonight is must see tv. Raps at Bucks. Milwaukee looks really good right now.

Apparently Giannis is out tonight which is too bad because I really wanted to see how these two teams fared against one another.

Ibaka has really turned around from last season playing strictly the 5. Still can't rebound for shit but playing much better.

Nick Nurse has a bit of the Phil Jackson vibe about him. No doubt he is the next great one.

This team could use another 3pt shooter. Too many guys on this team can't connect from deep consistently.

Doesn't matter who they get, the person will immediately forget how to shoot the 3 the minute they put on the uniform. CJ Miles entire existence is based around shooting the three and can't do that anymore.

I'm guessing they continue to work heavily with the young guys to get them going on that.

I was thinking Korver too, he wont cost much and would be an adequate CJ replacement even with his declining defense.

Miles or Powell would have to be in the deal. And then Cleveland to take one of them. Meh. If Korver wasn't 37 sure.

Korver is still an elite 3 point guy which is more than CJ has ever been outside of one season. Powell is probably a better all around player but that contract sucks, and he has struggled to get regular minutes in the rotation.

CJ and Norm aren't anything special, but to move one of them and pay more to get Korver just seems...meh. I'd rather get Doug McDermott.

The damage this team does without Kawhi (but with the rest) is pretty impressive.

It seems like Lowry is playing much better now that the offense isn't being run by Casey. What a strange coincidence.

The fact that Kawhi is a guy that can be inserted and doesn't really have a negative effect on the offensive flow, but absolutely increases the defensive accumen, is GD exciting.

If things continue to roll, I'm sure they can keep an eye on little tweaks available in trade, but really, I don't know if you need to change much. Just stay healthy

The Lakers are better than the Raptors moving forward, and the Clippers are well set up if they can pair Kawhi with another FA. What the Raptors can sell is winning now and for the next year or two. It's difficult to sell much beyond that because of Lowry's age.
