    Yep... Masai really went all in - he has nothing of value (except picks which you dont want to become the Brooklyn Nets) and we are stuck with scrubs like Miles, FVV and Powell who will drain close to $30 mil in salary next year.

    Our whole org is basically all on Kawhi's shoulders... if he leaves next year we are fucked and pretty much got a decade of rebuilding to start...
    The weird part was that Masai had nothing of value before the Kawhi Leonard trade anyways, but somehow managed to pawn off DeMar DeRozan onto the Spurs.

    Rebuilding is going to suck, but it's going to be better than watching DeRozan take us precisely nowhere. (Let's see what Siakam can truly become - if he develops a functional mid-range game with some useful moves to create shots outside the paint, he's an All-Star for sure. I never thought I would ever say that...)

    The 1st quarter dictated the outcome of the game.

    It was a 38 vs 19 shellacking. Fred IMO never controlled the pace of the game. We had a floor corporal instead of a floor general. Nurse gave him free reign and he did not answer the call. He should be ashame that his team relied on him to manage the offense. He came out in the 3rd with the same lackluster performance.

    Very disappointing, maybe not...as I am expecting too much from someone most likely a perennial back up PG

    Good luck finding upgrades at this point, honestly. Teams are hoarding away the majority of talent that is actually worth trading away for, and even if they do make those players available, good luck to Masai and the Raptors organization since they don't have any real assets beyond the ones that are critical to this team's success.

    You can't rely on OG and Miles and Fred and Wright to make shots. Ujiri needs to go shopping and add some 3pt shooting to this team.

    Its not looking pretty now when we are down our lead guard and a very functional big man in close to the basket who also sets really really good screens ....

    Still... for all intents and purposes we are at the half way point now... and the raps ability to hit from 3 is pretty suspect... its been this way for at least 6 weeks. Month to the trade deadline ... if no one of Fred / OG / Miles seriously steps up on a consistent basis... Ujiri has to go shopping ... Our shooting isn't league average from the outside... it has to be a lot better every night than its been ...

    True. But this team is so predictable. And they had no idea what to do everytime Kawhi gets double teamed.

    Raps have been boring and frustrating to watch since the west coast trip..

    The whole team spent the whole game clanking open 3's.

    All this whining about the offence, the defence was porous that game. Easy transition buckets and layups.

    What were Raps down at half, 16? Houston down 17 at half in Oakland.

    I don't mind Raps playing the long game. Get healthy, get back in sync.

    The Bucks, Celtics and Warriors don't do that.

    Those are the 3 biggest threats to our title chances.
    cmon man... the celtics iso irving all the time.... its pretty much their offense in the 4th q....

    to varrying degrees when they need a score the warriors clear out a side at the top of the key go to durant...
    and its the all alphabet show when the Bucks are scuffling....

    The point here is.... its a staple of the NBA.........

    Their half court offense is basically give it to Kawhi. Just 1 on 1.

    Funny how everybody wants JV traded every 10th game or so for the last 5 years...... apparently size and skill actually help to win basketball games.
    I have never been on the trade JV train.

    He's a dbl dbl machine when given the minutes and actually fed inside once in awhile. Lowry and DD virtually ignored him for long stretches and Casey evidently hated him, sitting him for long stretches after starting a game hot. Not sulking, actually the opposite off the bench and putting up high NBA PER numbers, lauded as a great teammate. Funny guy too.

    Nurse wants every player to be able to read the defense and then improvise. They're not getting the hang of it yet.

    Nothings gonna change unless they add some real 3pt shooters.

    I'm tired of watching OG and Wright and FVV and Powell and Miles chuck up 3's after 3's.
    FVV and Miles are real 3-pt shooters - at least until this year.
