    I would have to guess he's putting in some work on his midrange (and foul-drawing) game. If he can come back with a Kawhi-like approach to the midrange...

    Pascal doesn't get enough credit for just how spectacular his game is, probably because like all greats he makes it look so easy. Vince, for all his athleticism, did not have Pascal's nimbleness (few players have) - his full speed pirouettes, his attack of the outer corners of the backboard for long-distance layups almost impossible to block, and his lightning quick corner-3 release. A thing of beauty.

    Just a nonstop barrage of goodness. So nimble, so spicy.

    Nice. Part of the 2nd highest playoff-scoring duo in NBA history right there. Homegrown. Underrated defender too, can lock it down outside and inside. Man I miss ball. Thanks for posting that.

    I love pascal, but who in their right mind put him at 3rd? Must have been Jack or Matty D lol
    They said in the (replayed) game last night, in regards to last year's MiP vote, that as of two years ago they no longer have votes... (definitely Matt said.. maybe he was with Leo though...)

    The DeRozan scoring would help for sure, but he'd also blow up the defence. What the Raptors are doing, and the reason it's better than ever, is it takes all 5 guys to both play on a string and be able to deploy a variety of schemes and strategies. DeRozan just can't function on that level defensively and 1 guy like that breaks the whole thing down.

    Scorers who can't defend don't really win championships, ever. The importance of being a two way player is really underrated in a league that loves offensive fireworks so much.

    You gotta ask yourself I DeRozan is capable of being a 2nd/3rd option on a team. Event with the Spurs the offense somewhat revolves around him as the first or one of two first options.
    Because on that team he is the only player that can create for himself, he is the first option

    Would we be viewed as a team to beat if we had DeRozan as the second/third option to Pascal?
    No, but the general idea is right: Raps need some more firepower.

    Giannis is a stud. You try to make it work and if you can't you trade Siakam. It's pretty simple. But I do agree that the best type of talent to surround Siakam with is a dominant wing/guard that can play on the perimeter. Someone like Beal would be fantastic. A healthy Dipo would as well. These guys would take the pressure off of Siakam offensively but won't get in Siakam's way either.

    Not sure if this has been talked about much around here, but if Masai does take a swing at Giannis in free agency and if he's successful, could there be any possible drawback to pairing Siakam and Giannis? Does Giannis move to C or does Siakam move to SF? Are their games too similar and would they crowd each other on offense?
    I assume they would focus more on developing Siskams outside game. His strength is finishing around the rim and running the floor. His mid range and 3 would have to get better for then to be the perfect match.
