    Not an empty stats guy, but he's close. You trade Pascal & JV for Beal and we're totally f*cked for the playoffs. Who guards Durant and Giannis? Who guards Embiid and Cousins? Beal is undersized at SG and barely guards his own position, ffs. Beal isn't Kawhi or even Paul George. He's more like a Dollarama Ray Allen.
    Well said. Another solid post.
    Sometimes our eyes get big when we just look at one aspect of the game.

    The Nets are one of those good bad teams. Harris is a heck of a shooter. I think he's averaging over 50% on 3's. Have to keep a body on him and make him play defense. And that Kurucs guy is pretty good.

    Hopefully Green is a go tonight. Fred becomes a liability pretty quickly when he and Lowry are our two perimeter defenders.

    And I suspect Kawhi to have a big game. I still can't f@cking believe that we have this guy on our team.

    I'd say 90% of the board agrees you can't put Pascam in this deal.

    The question is whether you send OG. Also if you send JV which big do you get back.

    We are a good team but we aren't beating the Warriors yet. A 24-5-5 shooter who is only 25 years old is the kind of player who might fill that gap, and they don't become available every day.

    Finally someone said it. Beal is not a bad player but this year he's shooting below 35% from 3, along with shaky defence. Yes, he's averaging 24pts this year but that's on a bad team, he wouldn't average that here. I'm floored by some of the proposed deals floating around for him, like, "2 starters caliber players + 2 rotation players + 2021 pick", for him and Mahimi or something in that vein. I personally don't think he's even close to be worth that much. Good player though, just a bit too overrated sometimes imo.

    Raptors appear to be doing something little radio/podcast/volunteer bit involving kids. Green, Handy I think, Magloire, Monroe, Malachi...and KAWHI

    Kawhi is standing off to the side and the one kid goes "Would you like to join our show?" Right away Kawhi "I like to watch"

    It's Klaw Season. Time to hunt.

    It's becoming cringy seeing Raptors or any media really posting Kawhi smiling or laughing, stop making this so much of a deal, it's normal human behavior. It only reinforces the stigma.

    Meh, he seems to be having fun and willingly signing up for team functions. It's certainly not mandated in the contract to do as many things as he has so far. To me it shows buy in

    That's true and it's great news and all, it's just that media is overly emphasizing the fact that "look Kawhi is happy here". In my opinion of course as a marketer I'm tired of it, even though I fully understand what's being done.

    The whole "Kawhi doesn't talk" is all generated by the media.

    When he got traded, the media portrayed him like he's Marshawn Lynch. He's nowhere near like Lynch lol.

    He's just shy. Which is a lot of the reason why that Spurs stuff hasn't come out in the media. He doesn't wanna talk about it.

    Yeah he does like to keep things to himself and close to the vest... .This pretty much mirrors the Raptors/Ujiri approach on most media matters as well...

    I don't see anyone advocating Pascal in that trade. If it can't be done without him, it can't be done. But OG/Serge+, OG/JV+ giddy up
