Great stuff, Raptors. :smug:

I was in Toronto last week and the place was buzzing. Wish I was there to join the party.

Shame about Klay - he's a likeable dude.

Raps are all likeable, tho. Awesome effort. Best team won.

Really happy for Serge, Gasol, and Lowry. :thumbup:


He was having some game before he got injured. Shit of a way to end the season but great for Toronto and the wider NBA.

Watched a clip of Skip and Shannon, it appears a couple of the Warriors medical staff moved to the Hawks last year, including one particularly highly rated women, suddenly the Warriors are getting major injuries. Could be coincidental but I suspect the quality of their current medical team is declined and they aren't protecting and healing up the Warriors as well as before.


But well done Raptors, Kawhi and Canada, but not you Drake.

Well done Raptors! I was telling people back in December that could be a Toronto vs GSW Finals then Bucks rose up also.

Hard luck Warriors, am sure they will stay as a contender for next few seasons depending on signings etc. Good run for 5 years so far.

Hopefully Klay will be ok, will have to heal up for a wee while and ease back into it...

Yeah. The US media obsess about the big market teams needing to have the big stars and competing (Mostly for their lazy arses to not move I think) but Canada is surely a big market here.

Have to say, happy both Gasol bros have titles now and a ton of credit to the Raptors GM who took a HUGE punt on Kawhi being a possible one year rental that went nowhere and bet the house that he would bring them to the promised land.

Not at all. Peak Warriors play is about the best team play you can watch in the NBA. Injuries sunk the Warriors to some extent sadly.

Oh and Jeremy Lin is an NBA champion now! That's LINSANITY!

It’s getting like that Simpson’s episode when Mr. Burns hires in all the baseball legends for the softball team. Expecting Curry to get lost in a black hole next.

Several Canucks fans on here were involved in the riots. Fairly certain that's Snooze holding the sign.

Oi. :lol: :lol: I actually don't own a bandanner.

Great win for the Raptors, and didn't think they were gonna get across the line last night. Some really bad calls against them I thought, but doesn't matter now.

I think it's only on this coast they go into destruction mode, win or lose.

Warriors salaries.

funny how the shittiest klutz dozing on the end of the bench still gets paid more than the best All Black

ps Klay Thompson shouldve been looking at a huge raise. before he ripped up his knee

Klay would be looked after no worries.

They got a good bargain for Mckinnie and Looney

Looney would still be on his rookie contract, those are set according to where the player is drafted.

Looney did really well, he will be part of their core as they move forwards. If I was GS I would fortify themselves next season and trust their system and make the playoffs and then go from there. If KD stays and comes back (when he does and also obviously Klay) they can be a real strong contender again...

I wonder if it's worth keeping Cousins. He does make lots of mistakes but thats because he's involved in a lot of plays for a normal big man. Over a whole season he's physical presence could be crucial.

Cousins isn't gonna stick around for vets minimum though and they can't push themselves further into luxury tax for him.

Decent haul.

I'm not a Kuzma fan, so not getting him = a big "meh" from me.

100%

This deal >>> Feb deal


Now let's see if Griff can turn the 4th pick (and Lonzo) into something. Need to give Zion plenty of room to work and this line-up ain't it (Jrue loves taking it to the rim, Lonzo can't shoot and Ingram??)

But coach likes Lonzo a lot so I dunno

Woj, Teams are already expressing significant interest in the No. 4 overall pick belonging now to the Pelicans, league sources tell ESPN. Talks are expected to continue over the next few days. This deal could get even bigger for the Pelicans.

It'll be interesting to see how it fits for the Lakers (considering what playing with LeBron has done for other high volume bigs)

People who only watch highlights think the guy shoots a lot better than he does and creates his shot which he just doesn't do. He really doesn't have post moves (if you cut him off going right he has no answer and he's had some horrible games against bigs who work this out and his ridiculous miracle floaters and hooks aren't bailing him out) and about 70% of his points are assisted. That is A LOT, no other player comes close to that in the NBA, even high volume bigs like Embiid are <50%

Not saying he's not elite mind you..... but to everyone who said "get AD some help", he needs more help (and has had it!) than any other player in the game

No Kuzma, #4 pick in a weak draft after Zion and Ja. I don’t think NO got enough.

Kuzma probably is better than the #4 pick, but the Pels have been shopping that pick around so you never know what they might end up with.

Lakers won the trade though, AD, LeBron & Kuzma plus a bunch of scrubs is already a good side but they've got enough space to sign another player and people will want to come now. Maybe Kemba? He'd make a decent Kyrie stand in.

Kuz is a scrub! :lol:

The guy chucks at 30% from 3, can't defend for shit, and can't rebound for shit. He's Jamal fucking Crawford.

The #4 pick is worth more to the Pellies than him. Easily.

Guys, no, just no


Sounds like there's A LOT more to this regarding the picks/swaps/protections...

From Windhorst: "The Lakers just acquired one of the top five to ten players in the league .. He's a superstar. He's in his prime. One year from now we could be looking at the Lakers holding the trophy. What they gave up for him is POTENTIALLY SCANDALOUS. It's an unbelievable haul they gave. ... It is the Nets-Celtics trade Part 2."
Went on to call it "one of the most lopsided trades" in league history when it comes to draft pick compensation. The Lakers gave Pelicans control of their picks for the "next 5 to 7 years."
"It was the best possible deal I think the Pelicans could squeeze out of the Lakers. From what I understand is the details, there's more than just the draft picks. I can't say right now. Just know that this was an incredible haul that they had to give up from a draft standpoint."

Kuz can score and make his own play. He would thrive under the radar. AD and Bron can shoot 3s.

Sounds like Griff has invested in Laker incompetence (+ an ageing star) for the next few years. Might be a very smart investment... We have the Lakers pick when Lebron turns 40

As you can see, Lakers don't do drafts. They just sign the best players. If the Lakers are mildly successful in that period what's the use of the picks?
