    The funny thing is, lost in the hoopla of Kawhi’s shot, he went 16-39 in the game. We can get better too . But I agree with your point.
    lost in the hoopla of Kawhi's shot, is the fact that that whole game was just terrible. Epic ending, but the game itself was painful to watch. I like our chances against Philly this year. They don't have the shooting that they had last year.

    Milwuakee though...not sure how we would match up against them in the post season.

    I saw Masai talk to Vince. We might get him

    You don't see we could improve on one of the bench scrubs? Bring in a vet number 7-8 guy for rookie 11-12?

    There’s some truth in that but also some Toronto insecurity. Sure, without Kawhi’s shot, we wouldn’t have gotten by philly. But without Jimmy, we wouldn’t have needed Kawhi’s shot.
    Kawhi did a lot more than hit the final shot of the series. And he was a huge safety blanket through the entire playoff run for other guys to have bad nights.

    I expect Embiid to perform better. He can't completely "shit" the bed again right? Also Kawhi shut down Ben Simmons while OG can't quite hold him off.

    Nevertheless I like our chances against Sixers. Without Butler they don't have a closer

    I like our team but let's be real here, without Kawhi we don't get past Philly much less Milwaukee last year. Well that is pretty much the team we are going into this years playoffs with. I don't like the idea of not putting up a fight to defend the championship, but I'm also speculating this might be the best opportunity to set up the team for the future. What to do?

    But none of those guys are going to get minutes. it will be a 7 man rotation with maybe an occasional 8th man. Either RHJ or Davis with maybe Thomas as a situational shooter.
    If your doing an upgrade trade its to improve at Ibaka and Norms position. And if were being real Ibaka is probably the best back up center in the NBA, his only close competitor is Baynes.
    I disagree..u gonna need couple more guys..especially in playoffs...maybe there gonna struggle..through in a vet guy getted going..10..15..mins.

    It pains me to say but Nurse will have McCaw as the 8th man. Davis, RHJ and Boucher will get minutes if there's injury our foul trouble on the guard, wing and centre position, respectively.

    Buddy Heild....no thanks, bad money, plays like Demar with 3pt, No D..Terrence Ross..lol..just stop,plz..
    Raptors need complimentary players..ie..jae crowder, Aaron baynes, R. Covington..big wing,defensive center..rebounding is critical.
