    Get your lazy ass to watch some games, slaw. Lol.
    I've watched about 15 minutes. I'd rather watch regular season football than training camp. I can just skim what you guys have been saying until the reg season starts. One thing I've learned here is grindhouse has let me know OG is barely an NBA player at this point.
    It's Klaw Season. Time to hunt.

      That's valuable intelligence, because if you had watched the games you would be fooled into believing exactly the opposite.

          The really surprising thing is how well the new style of Raptors play has succeeded while still missing Yuta, Chis and Pascal, three guys who have all the size/skills to slip into that style seamlessly. Opposing teams are going to be exhausted playing against Toronto while the Raptors can easily rotate 12-14 guys in and out of the lineup and stay fresh with only a few players averaging 30 minutes a game. (Not saying they won't have players giving more than 30 minutes a game, but there will be no need to exhaust anyone and risk them getting hurt as a result). Fewer injuries due to overuse or tiredness can only help in the wins/losses column.
          Don't think teams normally rotate that many players in the regular season, much less in the playoffs. Would be hilarious if guys got to the playoffs and were gassed because they weren't accustomed to playing big minutes. We should be running our usual 8-10 player rotation in regular season.

            Unless it works running a 12 man rotation in the playoffs. Just avoiding stress or over-use injuries through the regular season will be an advantage. Giving reps to guys by divvying up the time a little more will lead to more experience and confidence in the playoffs. So many of these guys are clones of each other it's not like you are running a couple weak links out there. And exhaustion is exhaustion. If a guy is too exhausted to perform at a high level, it's an advantage to the other team. Not to mention the higher likelihood of injury to members of the other team is they are playing hurt or tired. Or if they are playing back to back games to secure a better position (or avoid facing the Raptors in the early rounds). The Raptors bench could be made up of anyone of 7 different guys and not see much drop off.

              I can't watch this pre-season shit for more than a couple minutes. The regular season three point shooting contests for 82 games are becoming tough enough to handle, let alone the pick-up-ball-quality of exhibition games. I turned on part of the Saturday game between college football and it was unwatchable even leaving aside Nurse ranting and complaining like a two year old.

                  Not interested in the development/growth of young players or how new teammates learn to integrate themselves? Understandable. I like seeing players pull out a new move or get better at things. Such a rapid growth curve for new guys, you can see improvement across the preseason exhibition games. I still don't get tired of it, even after 25 years of watching the team. But that's me.
