    The Rockets are the 2nd best team in the WC. They are the biggest threat to the Warriors IMO.
    I hated Rockets w/ Howard on their roster. They're looking nice now tho!

    There is no threat to the warriors in the west

    We will not go quietly in the night. We will rage against the dying light. We will study every buzzer beater with intensified might, because somethin with the NBA doesn't smell right.

    Apparently we're going paperless. Saving trees and shit and stuff, yo.

    Rudy Gay would be proud; dude was ahead of his time, trying to save box-score paper all those years ago. We did it man, we did it.

    Those are elite players. This whole 6th man narrative... taken as fact now. I'm worried if we don't trade JV we'll end up in playoff series where Demar is matched up against a great defender and our offence grinds to a hault, because our guard oriented offence doesn't work against some quality opposition, and then we wish we would have developed JV a little in the post to have developed some post passers and some understanding how to feed the post and to have another option. We expect JV to just be instant offence when nothing else works. And the post passing often is terribke. And if not for JV, we don't get past Indiana, where Demar was absolutely dominated and Lowry wasn't his usual self.
    People want a nice, clean narrative to describe a team by and with KL/DD/JV the Raptors are not pace-and-space, they aren't mobile + rangey, they aren't grit + grind, people don't know what to call a team that doesn't get assists but manages a league best ORTG, a team with two dominant guards that's been developing a young post big. In spite of not knowing how to put this team in a descriptive box in a single sentence, the Raptors are winning A LOT of basketball games, more than this franchise ever has and more than most pundits predict for them each and every year.

    Casey + DeMar have been defying our expectations + league trends every year with greater and greater effectiveness, there's far too much certainty by some here about what will and won't work with JV moving forward.
