        Lebron, noun

        1. A disorder similar to PTSD caused from watching raptor basketball
        when we lose a playoff game I wake up in cold sweats thinking lebron is back

        2. With the -to suffix, another name for Toronto in may

        It's Klaw Season. Time to hunt.

                  The skill yes...

                  The drama no....

                  • Last year at this time... after the first two losses at home to the Cavs you could see that the Raps weren't going to come back. That it was over. This year... its a completely different mindset.

                    Yep they dropped one to the Hinkies.. but in no way shape or form is there cause for panic or disillusionment that its all over but the excuses when they lost that first one to the Cavs. Nope.. No one is reaching for the hemlock.

                    It was a pretty lousy night on offense.. but from time to time when you play the best teams left standing that happens. The other guys are talented and are playing to win too and they step up and make life miserable for our hometown heroes. The matchups didn't work out as well as they had in the previous 5 games that they won easily. But what really gives you that "don't worry.. be happy" feeling is that the Raps defense was still stiffling thoughout that game. That defense gave them an opptortunity even with a pretty bad night on offense to get a clean look for a 3 point shooter who you would be happy to have take that shot. It missed.
                    Shit.

                    But its nothing like that feeling after game 1 against Cleveland when they came up short after blowing that big lead.

                    Embiid still isn't 100%. Knee tendinitis doesn't heal.. its managed. Simmons still can't shoot. Butler isn't going to have another 30 point game. James Ennis and the Moose bless their hearts aren't going to post to many nights like they had last night at the Vault...... and the Raps can play a lot better.

                    Cautious optimism still reigns supreme as round 2 unfolds...

                      The only thing I might challenge is the bold. Butler scoring 30 again isn't that much of a stretch.

                            You are not wrong. The Raptors played/were coached like shit. And they were one missed 3pt shot away.

                            I can't see this happening again. The solutions are obvious and have been repeated by every hack sports writer and every forum member.

                            Play your good players more and when the other teams good players are playing. Have good shooters take open shots instead of passing up the opportunities. Box out. It's a simple game. Especially when you have the better team. It doesn't get tricky until the other team has better players. That will be next year. But by then the Raptors will have Anthony Davis. So it will never happen.

                            • Pop just signed a 3 year extension. I really hope they can build a contender that includes DeRozan. If anyone can, its him and Buford. Would love to see him get another shot and if Durant leaves golden state the league may be wide open for a couple years of fun

                              • NBA assigned Scott Foster to the Warriors-Rockets game. Foster has fouled out Harden 3 times over the last 256 games he has played. In the other games, he has fouled out once. NBA giving the big middle finger to Houston.

                                But, wait, I thought that ranting and raving about the refs got your RESPECTI!!!! Maybe Houston didn't do enough to get respect. They should take some more technical fouls tonight.
