    Lowry will surprise us, treatment of his back was last Friday...thats almost a week ago and doubtful that the injury is long term so we may see some BFF battle as a side show to the main plot.

    Spends his whole time talking about playing AGAINST other great players. Crazy talk! Doesn't he know he's supposed to speculate about playing WITH Wilt Chamberlain, Jerry West, etc.? Hasn't anyone told him about superteams? (Edit: clearly not, look at the Hornets)
    He was ON a fucking superteam. Pippen and Rodman were hall of fame level talents. Not to mention the 1996 team where they had those two and Kukoc coming off the bench along with a ton of excellent role players.

    Even the earlier rendition of the Bulls had Pippen and Horace Grant. The year Jordan left they still won 50 games and were a game away from the ECF (and likely the finals since they lost in 7 to the best team in the east that year, the Knicks). Grant made the all-star team and Pippen finished 3rd in MVP voting.

    So tired of people acting like Jordan played with a bunch of scrubs. Yeah he never joined a superteam, he didn't have to, he had one built around him. Not everyone has the luxury of their team drafting or trading well to put together a title contender.

    Preach. No one here said Jordan played with scrubs in Chicago, though. (But a bit of context: yes they won 55 games the first year of baseball and were a 2nd round out. The next season MJ only played 17 games, Bulls only won 47, and they were again a 2nd round out. They were a good team but definitely not a great team without MJ.)

    And we do now live watching an NBA where MVP level players will leave Finals contending teams to join even better teams. Imagine MJ on the Penny/Shaq Magic, or Hakeem's Rockets, or David Robinson's Spurs, etc. etc.

    The only guy who did this was Durant.

    The Raptors part is waaaay off. Drake was officially announced as Global Ambassador before the 2013-14 season, starting the greatest and most sustained run of winning in franchise history: 6 straight playoff appearances, 4 straight 50+ win seasons, a first ever ECF appearance and culminating in the 2019 NBA championship.

    Started at the bottom, for real.

    Raptors are the best team on the road with a 13-7 record. 538 has us as one point favourites. Should be a close game. Go Raps.

    Hope he stays out. If he plays I bet he sits out the next 3-4 games.

    Actual footage of tonight's matchup - Kawhi(Rick James) and DeMar(Charlie Murphy), with Kyle looking on.

    He's just a needless distraction whose benefits (attracting free agents, attracting media attention, making Toronto an "it" destination?) are outstripped by his negatives imo. I'm glad he's been away more this season as he was getting to be an embarrassment.

    They're factoring in home court and the referees ....

    Wow is the ESPN chick a spurned lover or what?

    And Kawhi thinks he's seen snow (or cold) in Toronto already? That does not bode well for January or February....

    "But it's just cold. You know, I came from California, and I moved to San Antonio, and there's no snow in either city. It's my first experience having Christmas with snow on the ground and just seeing snow throughout the year for the first time."

    THROUGHOUT THE YEAR? Thankfully, we play in a building ....
