  • Game #1: New Orleans Pelicans 122 - Toronto Raptors 130

    Welcome back to the Champion's Republic. Does it feel real yet? Actually, the weirder thing is that it feels like we've always been champions. Was there every a time we weren't? I can't recall it. Let this flag fly forever.


    But now...the back to back drive starts with Game 1 against our old rival...the Pelicans?! No matter...tomorrow is all about the ringz. Remember the ceremony starts closer to 7:30
    As for the opponents? Here they are...

    ZION IS COMING! ZION IS COMING!! ZION IS COMING!!!



    Or.....maybe not. In the grand tradition of Pelicans superstars being injured for their lone trip to Toronto, Zion will be sitting this one out. But, there are others..




    So here's the presumed starting lineup


    PG


    SG


    SF


    PF


    C

    A (possibly) mighty foe but they are no match for what they are about to take on..




    Yes...I realize there are a few faces there that won't be on the floor Tuesday night but to that I add these sage words from TSN's JLew



    But, with that said, I'd been fine if every post this year had some version of this..



    Go Raps!

            First game thread of a new season !!!
            A season unlike any other so far in that the team we all cheer for are the defending champions of the NBA

            Should be a great night. The banners go up.. not simply Atlantic Division Winners banners but League championship ones. Nothing that gets said or hinted at or whispered by the NBA MSM takes away from the black and white outcome that the Toronto Raptors kicked the Golden State Warriors ass hard four games to two. The woulda coulda shoulda shit is just that. Shit. The two games the Warriors won were fortunate for them. The Raps beat the Warriors by an average of 10 points a game in the games they won. The ones they lost they lost by 1 point and 5 points. So when you hear the dismissive tones of the Broussard, Smith, Rose, Nichols, Fridell et al. crew... know its 100% pure sour grapes.

            Pellys come in without Zion Williamson which is too bad as we only get to see this guy twice.
            Likely getting the start in his stead is Derrick Favours. Its to bad cuz we don't get to see Pascal take on the next one. Such is life

            Serge and Marc should be able to handle Okafor and the rookie Hayes without to much trouble.
            Pascal handles Favours as he just can't stay with him.
            It gets interesting on the wing as the Pellys sport Raptor killers Holiday and Moore along with an up and coming Ingram and the always dangerous JJ Reddick. Raps going to counter with OG , Norm Stanley and TD2 with a flash now and again of Freddy .
            Handling the ball for the Pelllys is Lonzo Ball who will be much much better than he was in LA. Still Kyle and Fred will give the champs an advantage.

            Need the perimeter defense to be good tonight and to limit Holiday in the lane...Watch for Gasol and Serge and Pascal to have big games.
            Raps W.

                  It’s definitely more civil and positive on here since the championship.

                  I suspect it will be that way until the first loss.

                    All the trolls are falling by the wayside.

                    remember that claw guy? He spent all year telling us how stupid nurse is and how shitty fred is.

                    all that he accomplished was showing us how dumb he is.
                    It's Klaw Season. Time to hunt.

                              Let that sink in.
