  • I wonder if Nurse knows how many fines the team will pay before Masai say "Ah, Nick... have you got a minute. We need to talk about something here."

    • Even with Nick making a relatively small amount for an NBA HC, 15k really ain’t shit.

      What’s valuable? WINS.

      Beat that drum Nick.

      • Finally a night off from the Christmas mayhem...Took in the Nets and Lakers game. I can see why Nurse is going at the league and the NBA referees union full bore.

        So its in the 4th Q and Lebron James takes the ball at the top of the key against Ronde Hollis Jefferson.. the lane clears out for him to go one on one. As he starts to back down Jefferson... Ronde pulls the chair a bit and Lebron lunges into Jefferson with his forearm as he is falling and while pushing off he tosses up a circus shot that bounces around a couple times and falls in. Whistle goes.... and the Nets are giving props to Ronde for drawing the what seemed to be pretty clear offensive foul... then a strange thing happens for us Raptors fans.....

        Not only is it NOT an offensive foul as seen by the broadcast crew and most everyone in the building .. its a phantom hblocking foul and to boot .. its continuation ... the shot counts and one.... Breathtaking when you have watched Leonard get his sweater grabbed and his arms held as he goes to the basket lately with nothing.

        Keep it up Nick.... MLSE has DEEEEEEP Pockets.

          None of that description is a surprise to NBA fans. The phantom calls that LeWhiner gets should be embarrassing to both him as a professional player and the Nba as a p[rofessional league.

          But LeWhiner expects and demands it while the NBA endorses and accepts it.

          In no other sport does their best player get so many garbage and phantom "reputation calls" calls.

          • If this was Casey he'd be getting ripped to shreds. We are playing absolutely abysmal basketball.

              Tonight was one big coaching fail from Jay Tria...I mean, Nick Nurse. He deserves an F grade for tonight. There are a shit ton of issues that I could elaborate on (such as giving the starting backcourt too many minutes, not doubling Aldridge or DeRozan while they beat our defenders 1 on 1, starting the second half with the exact same lineup that was dead on arrival to start the first half), but all you need to know about how bad Nurse's coaching job was tonight, is that the Spurs happily gave the Raptors a mismatch (Derrick White against Kawhi Leonard) and Nurse instead opted to use Kawhi to initiate pick and rolls from 26 feet away from the basket rather than letting him take on White 1 on 1. Incredibly unimaginable coaching failure tonight from Nick Nurse.

              • Nurse is not the coach for this team... another Masai mistake giving this guy fucking 3 years.. stuck now...if Kawhi doesnt like him we are absolutely fucked for the next decade since no player is gonna come here and we will have to find that star player in the draft.

                Nurse gets to get his fucking act together

                    Bud was never passing up the opportunity to coach Giannis. Why would he want to go to a team that was very similar to the Hawks?

                    Bud would have been amazing here though.

                    • So Bud is going to make all our players into 3 point specialists? We can't even hit open shots.... its not all on the coach.

                        Yeah I know, just sucks. It actually feels like we've downgraded going from Casey to Nurse.

                          • Nurse needs to install more structure in the offense.

                            • FVV can't seem run simple plays or p'n'r....

                              Last night's defense was awful. Why the hell would you just switch and let DeMar go at small guards. That was awful.

                              Ibaka postups were bad too. Not sure what they were doing on offense.

                                This is a pretty hot take right here. Nurse has this team on pace for 57 wins while missing one of Kawhi/Lowry for like half of their games (seriously, 19 of 40).

                                Yes, Nurse is doing a whole bunch of dumb crap. He basically told us he'd be doing that at the start of the season though. Hard to judge whether it's going to be an issue until the late season. For now, I am definitely concerned, but we've got a half season of dumb crap from Nurse (with some promising stuff thrown in) - that doesn't compare to Casey's half-decade run of consistently bad decisions.
