Title: Raptors
Post by: Pigskin on February 05, 2019, 04:12:41 PM
Are the Raptors fallen back to earth. 5-4 in there last 9. Is Kawhi the answer.

Does 9 games mean anything in an NBA season?

(I don?t know the answer to this).

Raps have 40 wins currently which is tied for first in the league.
Kawhi is amazing but I'm not sure if he'll ever be 100% healthy this year or maybe even ever.
They have had a ton of key injuries this year and guys keep stepping up, they are a deep and versatile team.
Gasol being acquired for JV is an improvement.
I believe they will go further in the playoffs than last year.

Anyone see Pacers fans chanting "Lebron's gonna trade you" while Ingram was shooting free throws a couple of days ago?  :D
That might have been more clever than anything Jet fans have come up with recently.

Jeremy Lin (sanity) coming to a Raptors team near you...

They look good, but can they stay healthy? I think the Raps will win the East if they do.

Siakim is really playing well. Nice fine for the raptors.

FANTASTIC ........ last second Leonard hoop for the win ......... enormous excitement with the buzzer beater.  Raptors advance


Title: Re: Raptors

Leonard's last second shot - a heart stopper!  Yikes.  Great win for the Raptors.


Title: Re: Raptors
Post by: Pigskin on May 13, 2019, 03:49:42 AM
He had to make that shot after missing that free throw in the last couple of seconds of the games.

They have to find a way to re-sign him (Kwahi) in the off season.


Title: Re: Raptors
Post by: Pigskin on May 16, 2019, 02:48:47 AM
Terrible 4th quarter tonight. They where still in the game with 2 minutes left and could hit a shot.


Title: Re: Raptors
Post by: Pigskin on May 20, 2019, 03:55:47 PM
Wow, get some 3 point shooters. Fred and Danny are terrible. This game would have been over early if we could make our 3's.


Title: Re: Raptors

Dan and Fred hit some three's and the game was over early. KL limping around, not good.

Big comeback from 2 and 0.  Tonight's win has to give them some confidence they can win this series.

If you want to be a Raptors fan you have to ignore proper grammar - it's "WE THE NORTH".  :)

Raptors came out of the gate slow, but finished strong. Fred had a great game. Nice road win for the Raptors.

Absolutely FANTASTIC win against a very good Bucks team ........... Game 6 will be a dandy   GO RAPS GO

Can not wait for Saturday night. Will be checking the score on my phone, as we are at a wedding.

Now if they would just stop showing Drake, it would be even better.

Ditto....it's not about him.  Show him once and that would be plenty.


Title: Re: Raptors

They show Drake all year, why are they going to stop now. He is the Raptors (Spike). I am okay with Drake.

Finally the Raptor are in the finals. The 5 day break will really help. Some of the Raptors need some rest.

Fyi; its the NBA Finals not final which is different from the NHL as they call their series the Stanley Cup Final.

Not a basketball fan at all but this is pretty kool and exciting.

Didnt watch the game but found myself looking up the score first thing this morning. Lol   ... dont think ive ever looked up or cared about a basketball game before.


Good luck Raps.....   Go do this!


Title: Re: Raptors

GSWs in 5


Title: Re: Raptors
Post by: New_Earth_Mud on May 26, 2019, 06:32:03 PM
GSWs in 5



Ive got no clue but ill take the Raps in 6.

From my understanding the GSW are a vet team thats been here before. Raps are young and have no quit in them.

I wont lose any sleep over it but i wish the Raps luck.


Title: Re: Raptors

3 more wins. Spicy P was very good tonight. Dan Green came to play.

Title: Re: Raptors

The Raptors have to shot better. We still only need 3 wins.


Title: Re: Raptors
Post by: jayrock on June 03, 2019, 04:33:30 PM
Raps D was outstanding. They make half of what they missed in the last quarter, and they win by 10.


Title: Re: Raptors
Post by: Pigskin on June 04, 2019, 06:07:26 AM
If they don't get out score 24-2 in the 3rd. quarter they also win.


Title: Re: Raptors

Complete game for the Raptors. Two wins to go.

KD was on fire. Re-injured, whatever his injury was??? Look like Achilles Tendon to me.


Title: Re: Raptors
Post by: Pigskin on June 11, 2019, 02:58:04 AM
Not sure why a team that was terrible at shooting 3's all night, is going for a 3 when we only needed 2 to win. Drive for the basket and force them to make a play on us.


Title: Re: Raptors
Post by: Jockitch on June 11, 2019, 03:03:44 AM
Came back with great determination from 14 down, got a nice lead very late, only to choke with no points in 5 of their last 6 possessions or was it 4 of 5 ....... such is sports.


Title: Re: Raptors
Post by: jayrock on June 11, 2019, 12:18:37 PM
great game to watch, but ya, why go for 3 when that was not working all night, when you know you can drive and get 2 over and over. Oh well. Thursday night it is.

Barstool Sports@barstoolsports

It looked like a gunshot went off in KDs calf.


I don't know how to link videos, but that tweet has a video that shows his calf exploding... this could be career ending.  The rule is generally you can play injured if there is no chance you can make things worse...   this is worse.  A lot worse.  Millions of dollars worse... KD could have signed a huge contract next year, now, well...

That is most certainly not a rule, unless if you are 100% there is always a chance you can make the injury worse.

Just watching a bit of the parade coverage. There was a shot of the crowd that looked pretty scary. It was very squished and you could see some panic developing. I hope nothing bad happens there.

Reports are saying that Kwahi just signed with the Clippers.


https://www.tsn.ca/reports-kawhi-leonard-to-sign-with-los-angeles-clippers-1.1333829

He just won a championship and a Finals MVP, and to sign with the Clippers he had to get them to trade for Paul George. Feels like a punch in the gut to all Raptors fans.

When teams pay enormous salaries, players can afford to take less money to play where they want and dictate, to some degree, with whom they want.  There is zero loyalty involved.  It is the nature of pro sports today.

You say that like it's just on the players side, the Raptors got Kawhi in the first place by shipping out DeMar

Both factors are in play.  It's big business.  I'm just reflecting on on a past era when players displayed some loyalty to their team if their team treated them fairly.

Apparently we're not completely past that, as Kevin Labanc just signed one of the most team friendly deals I've seen in quite a while.
