    Everything Pascal Siakam

    Pascal deserves his own thread as well. For a 27th pick, it's incredible that we can basically pencil him in for significant production with the 2nd unit this year. He's one of the best open court rim runners in the league, has a motor that won't quit, and comes across as a first class teammate/young man. The big question is whether he can be an impact defender in just his 2nd season.

    He doesn't get enough talk.

    Close game between Sixers - C's, 2 mins left, Philly up 2 poss. (5 pts) with ball. At 1 min. C's just 2 back, 76'ers ball.After teams exchange 2 pts each, C's go Hack 'a Ben and he sinks both FT. C's J. Tatem hits 3 now down 1. C's foul Embiid on purpose and he makes FT's. 76'ers make defensive plays and sink 7 of 8 FT's in last 40-sec. to get good road win over tough C's team. Embid scores 38 to lead Sixers. Ahhh it wasn't long ago we were watching a Rap's team on a roll, then...

    Real early for those.

    But in Terry II's case, obviously rock solid.

    ESPN RPM (real plus/minus) impact stats.

    Despite his on & off struggles.... Pascal is #6 in the league overall! Pretty good numbers on both sides of the ball.

    Lowry used to dominate these rankings, but he's fallen off a lot.... especially on defense. He's #282 in DRPM this year. Yikes.

    And Terence Davis is a keeper.

    Well, if we don't land a Giannis or reasonable facsimile, I really don't see anything more than just a minor chance at another chip; it's just the way the NBA works these days, you need star(s). We don't even know if Kyle, Gasol or Serge be here or meaningfully contributing by 2021 or who would replace them ...

    And I'm a bigger optimist (I think) lol
    2 out of those 3 guys were out for weeks and we saw that Masai is building a roster that can keep winning post-Lowry.

    I'm not worried, I'm excited. Whether it's Giannis or not over the next 2 years, Masai has done nothing but move this program in the right direction since he got here. "Get Kawhi summer 2018" and "trade for Marc Gasol" we're probably not in anybody's 3 year plan in 2015, but here we are with a championship banner in the rafters. We good.

    I looks like we are banking on at least getting someone summer of 2021. Lowrys big 1 year extention points to that and masai has made a point of keeping the cap sheet clean. Giannis is obviously plan A, But there are also some pretty good plan Bs out there. Oladipo, Gorbert, and depending on what happens in L.A, AD, Kawhi and PG will all potentialy be free agents that summer. That summer is going to be like the last big cap sheet in 2016. If you have a clean sheet and are a winning program your going to have a pretty good shot at getting a top end talent. Hell i could be talked into a Oladipo, Siakam, FVV team being a favorite in the east.
    So you're saying we could get Kawhi AND Giannis to play with Siakam?

    It's only a bad plan if you don't actually sign any good free agents.

    Ask the 2010 Heat, 2014 Cavs and 2016 Warriors about how it works out if you get the guy you are after.

    Masai shouldn't be betting the farm on signing Giannis. But he also should highly value the chance to do so, even if he needs to have contingencies in place.

    If he leaves, its for LA, Miami, New York, maybe Dallas, maybe Golden State, maybe Boston...

    Toronto is a not a player. The sooner we accept this the easier it will be. And I'm an optimist around here, guys.

    Im in favour of playing above the cap. Keep the team solid and wait for the opportunity for a trade. Even if we lack the cap space, if giannis really wants to be here it can happen. Just sign and trade the guy. The bucks will play ball if giannis wants to go and they want to recoup something.

    So Lebron, Lebron, and Durant joining the Warriors dynasty. Not exactly examples of a "small market" attracting a superstar
    Toronto stops treating itself like a small market and the results will follow. Is essentially all Masai has been saying for years. I'd bet he thinks he can sign a guy.

    Our track record in terms of attracting and signing tier 1 FA's is like mmm...The winning culture has improved our brand, but it ain't enough IMO to lure the biggest fish north of the border.
