    I dunno if spoiled is the right word. To me, this feels more "better than nothing" in trying global times. I really wish the season was already over and we were the 2x champs and games were played a normal scenario.

    But this is...just ok..to me. I'm having a hard time getting thrilled by it, knowing how big the asterisk really is this year
    I don't understand the asterisk talk. This year's championship may well be the hardest ever won.

      Theres no playoff atmosphere. Its harder to travel and win a game in a rabid barn. This looks more like summer league
      It's Klaw Season. Time to hunt.

        Hope to see more handles from OG. It's a little early but he's young and if he continues to put in work maybe he'll develop a whole new set of offensive skills
        You have to keep in mind with OG that he missed half his last year of college development with a knew injury, played his rookie year coming off that injury, and then missed a good chunk of last year with various ailments and personal issues. This is really just his second season and he was basically a freshman coming out of NCAA. Patience is required,

        And I agree his handle has looked much tighter in these exhibition games than in March. From the little I have seen (and I'm basing this on a few highlights) he's not bringing it up as high on the bounce and his posture is less upright than before. If he can attack off the dribble consistently and finish plays, he is going to make himself a lot of money.

          It's not that it's easier or harder, it's that it is so much different than normal. There will always be an argument that whoever wins this year probably wouldn't have won in the normal setting, because X team would have been better, Y would have been worse etc. There is an asterisk on this year.

            We rarely get to see OG get to the rim, but from what I have seen I think he needs to get better at finishing around the basket as well. Hopefully the handles allow him to get reps at the rim so he can improve.

              It's weird but sometimes he has no lift when he goes for layups. Dunno if it's footwork issue or what
              Only one thing matters: We The Champs.

                Meaningless game ... I expect the abundance of minutes to be distributed throughout the end of the bench today. Lots of Brissett, Dewan, Watson, Thomas and Miller.

                      I think it's because some idiot in US used photo of Raptors bus and tried to spread fake news about how BLM uses these buses to bring people to riots.

                        That's true of every other year too. Every year one team or another has an injury, or a bad matchup, or any number of other crazy things, and the team that wins out given all those things happening gets the championship. This year there is just a different set of circumstances added to all those other things that are also happening.

                        People will tell you there is an asterisk on the Raps' championship. Same goes for the Warriors because they got Durant. The team that wins, wins. Asterisk talk is for all the teams that fall short.

                          I might do so if it were anything more than a scrimmage.
                          Scrimmage. You're talking SCRIMMAGE?
