    I rarely see Raptors jerseys on a street period. But I saw shit tons when black and gold came out plus they were always sold out.

    Curry still not playing, he sat out last game too:




    I didn't realize the Warriors are on the second night of a road b2b tomorrow.

    The GSW are expected to lose against Toronto. Per ESPN:
    http://www.espn.com/nba/story/_/id/2...s-lose-january

    Jan. 13: Golden State at Toronto | MahScore of 8

    Even the mighty Warriors aren't impervious to fatigue, especially considering the circumstances they face in this brouhaha. It'll mark their third game in four days, their fifth game in eight days, and the second of a back-to-back set. And let's not forget the travel involved. First, they'll host the Clippers in Oakland on Jan. 10, then they'll fly to Milwaukee -- losing two hours in the process -- to face the Bucks on Jan. 12. Then, after facing those swarthy Bucks, the Warriors will head out that same night for Toronto -- losing another hour in the process ... and probably more time as they pass through customs, so who knows exactly when their heads will hit the pillow at their downtown Toronto hotel? All we know is, it'll be late. Very late. And then they'll have to face the Raptors less than 24 hours later -- a Raptors squad, mind you, that will enter this game with a one-day rest advantage and will be on a five-day homestand.

    yeah...but it sounds more like they are keeping him out of the Bucks game so he can play in Toronto (his "home" court)

    Well that is not fair. I don't even consider him Canadian or Torontonian for that matter.

    White Europeans don't need America anymore. They found American dream in Europe. People of colour are still looking for that dream and West is their only choice. Whites went through that, incl. Trump's grandparent. He moved to United States in 1885. Trump was clearly talking about black people. Shame on him.

    In the last 35 years, no other player has matched JV's 18 rebounds in under 20 minutes from the Cavs game

    Looks like Cleveland is still bored...To pre occupied thinking about the post season.... what to pack for the first road trip.....and they coughed up a 20 point 1st quarter lead and lost to Indy..who was without Myles Turner.

    It was so unimportant..that Lebron only played 40 minutes on the second night of the back to back.

    Nothing wrong here ....

    Cavs body language and chemistry is terrible. Starting to get the impression that Kyrie wasn't the only guy on that team who didn't like Lebron. They should just give Lebron the coach and GM titles and be done with it.

    Hoping so hard the Cavs are wrecked. At this rate we have no idea what the 1st and 2nd round matchups will be.

    Cavs are falling quite a ways back to make 1st realistic for them to be quite honest. We need 1st or we likely get them in round 2

    Not out of the realm of possibility Cavs don't hold on to 3rd place either. If they end up 4th or 5th, Boston holding onto 1st may not be the worst thing.
    If we knew half as much about coaching an NBA team as we think, we"d know twice as much as we do.

    If Cavs tumble continues we will end up with first seed... LeBron seems really close to taking yet another sabbatical like in 14/15 (although they are some conspiratorial theories that the reason he took some time off wasn't just for rest) and if he does Cavs might really dig themselves into heart of playoff battle - I wouldn't bet any money for ordering spots 3 through 8, even Philly or Knicks might rejoin - they are losing just 1.5/3 games to 8th seed.

    I wonder if we and Boston keep up the pace and end up with 60+ wins each - that would be the first time since 08/09 season in Eastern Conference that two teams achieved that (66-16 Cavs and 62-20 Celtics). Most projections have us and Boston neck to neck at ~58 wins.

    Also we talked in other threads how Boston record is overachieving their net rating - same can be said about Heat. Common denominator? Top 5 coach.

    Which in the past would cause both my sphincters to tighten up..but somehow not so much this year. To use a horse racing analogy James has gone to the whip at the half way pole....which is really early...usually the jockey goes to the whip as they round the turn to come down the stretch....He has to be wondering how much this team has left if he is going this hard this early. If you look at their personnel..there are a lot of specialist type role players ...Korver shots 3s..no dribbling or much defense..Fry the same....Thompson is an offensive rebounding machine .but not much for shooting or handling the ball.....JR Smith shoots 3s and no defense...IT is a scorer and ball handler but no guarding... or

    The Raps have a lot of guys who can shoot, dribble and guard...and he raps for the first time in a while are fast.way faster than the Cavs.....combine that with the Cavs are ALL getting older by the week and it doesn’t seem as daunting...

    That all said ..would still like to see anyone but them in the semis or the ECF...but it’s not the come to Jesus moment it used to be over the last 3 years.
