    yeah he'll never be that guy. Handle is the most difficult skill to learn at this level. This is his ceiling
    Demar's handles improved quite a bit during his time at the Raptors.

    Really need Siakam and OG to do the same as it's missing in both of their games and certainly makes it a lot harder for them to create their own shots.

    Mamba mentality goes away quickly when you dribble off your foot. You have to back up the swagger with technical skills to execute. Pascal is still catching up with his peers.
    I'm not talking about Mamba Mentality. He has none of that. ZERO. Nada. Zilch.

    I'm talking about the mindset of a star player. He didn't want to be the guy. His body language the whole series says he didn't want to be the guy. He's just happy to be a role player.

    I'm still not convinced the Celtics starters aren't better without Hayward. Kemba/Smart/Brown/Tatum/Theis is just a really well balanced lineup that's tough as hell defensively. Hayward deepens their scoring and would obviously help over 7 games (instead of playing Wannamaker/Ojeleye) but he takes minutes from Smart/Brown too and that doesn't help. Raptors went hard at Kemba as the weak link, Hayward's also a middling defender and would have been another attack point for Toronto.
    Fred said the same in his presser.

    Bingo. Pascal had an amazing season and looking forward to an even better Siakam next season.
    but will he have that in the post season assuming they even make it ?

    Glad it was competitive and entertaining to the last. Sad to say goodbye to the defending Champs. Hoped the magic would hold out, but we know how rare that magic can be. They had a touch of it all season long. Super proud of what they've done and looking forward to the future.

    That's the most candid and non-combative I've ever seen Kyle in a presser. You can see his love for playing with these guys. You can see his love for playing with the Toronto Raptors.

    Looking forward to what comes next.

    Nobody's offseason is affected by what happened here. Raptors have a plan in place. These are solid players.

    Lol. Good point. That's exactly what he is, a broken clock.

    I don't know how we can say this is his ceiling when we've already, frequently seen him be way, way better.

    Man needs a reset. Not a delete.
    Some people got short term memories or only care about the short term. He'll be fine. He may not be that main guy, but hes proven he can be the second scoring option on a championship team. All the Raptors need to do is get the main guy. Obviously if you can trade Pascal for a superstar, thats different.
