    With him/Without him, they're nowhere near Championship level this season

    It gives LeBron a much easier out if the Cavs go one and done


    It feels like that's what will happen with LeBron putting up good numbers


    I remember after the trade and only 2 wins a row most people around here say It Cavs beat in the east now blah blah blah all because they got 3 unproven players from shit tier teams. Knee jerk nonsense. @Sauce Castillo And I tried to say we think the Cavs will still suck and the d will be just as bad but told we are just wishful thinking cuz we raptor fans

    Fast forward a few weeks and now everybody knew the Cavs would still suck lol sure buddies. Nobody saying love gonna come put them over the top anymore?? Kevin Love lol kevin?? Lol dude gonna have mad anxiety with that kind of pressure

    fun fact from yesterday, Raptors top 3 scorers (Lowry, DeKobe, Ibaka) went 12 for 38 and the Raptors still put up 132 points....


    but yea, just like years past..... same team......


    soon you all realize this team is much more than Lowry and DeMar. game plan for just those 2 and you gonna get burned.

    Lakes are back, baby!!

    Sarcasm aside it's a nice finish in terms of attracting high end FA in the off season. Seems to be some light at the end of the tunnel. Lakes can be first round cannon fodder next year

    Ingram was also putting up 18/5/5 in Feb before Winslow injured him. Was shooting on 53/54/79 splits. He reminds me Kawhi. Similar playstyle and demeanor. Not as good as Kawhi was defensively but not at all bad.

    he reminds me more of Lamar Odom, or a shittier shooting Durant (they move very similarly w/ that daddy long legs type euro step slink)

    And when was the last time they had a max FA like PG13 openly say he wants to go home to LA. I want him to stay in OKC but Im pretty sure hes leaving so he can be " the guy", even if its a losing situation

    You spend an awful lot of time on internet forums trying to convince ppl you don't know, that the Raptors are good. Their bench playing well against the Knicks isn't gonna gonna convince the non-believers that they are no longer playoff pretenders.

    Yea my jobs have too much down time. Bench plays good against everybody, it's the best bench in the league. Knicks rockets Celtics whoever they all get burned by the bench

    Clips are 1.5 games behind 4th place Pelicans.

    Hiring the Logo was a great move! Got rid of CanPee3 and Messiah's huge contract.

    Bench depth is something that matters in the regular season. You'll have to rely on a bunch of guys who have folded when it matters, come playoff time. Until they don't id stop wasting your time convincing others that this team is different.

    Everything is lined up for the Raps, Cavs are a mess and the Celtics are banged up. No excuses for them this year.
