    Obsessive-compulsive following of Raps news. IIRC, the Jays team outing was the same day as some annual Lithuanian happening, so Val had a valid reason not to go. And one or two of the coaches showed...

    Really glad to see this. I was a little worried that Jonas was becoming a little separated from the team, since in addition to getting overlooked on the court, he didn't go to the Jays game with the...

    I think the comparison was meant to be for the type of player Ross will be... ie. 3 and D and dunks.

    I think Ross is a poor man's Eddie Jones, but if he ever got to the level of prime Eddie Jones...

    I think you're conflating two separate arguments that were common refrains. The first was that our record was so good because we play in the East. The second was that it was no big deal to win the...

    I think the plan is for Demar's minutes to be reduced somewhat, now that our depth is noticeably improved, so that will affect his per-game numbers. But I do think we'll see a slight uptick in his...

    The problem with the comparison here is the same one that surfaces when people use per-36 numbers: usage matters. Thompson averaged 67% more FGA/game in his second year. And when usage increases...

    Faried doesn't move the needle for us. He's a poor defender and hustle bigs are easily replaced.

    The answer to the OP is become the 2004 Pistons, as has been pointed out. It's sort of eerie: ...

    Pretty sure the promoters were paying the stars players $150k each. The NBA fines would have been less, but I think the players were more concerned with the optics and not pissing off the league.

    I find it incredibly weird that the NBA would wait until the 11th hour to issue their warnings. It's possible that East West Private was just trying to sneak the whole thing through without proper...

    Yes, I know that, but the problem there is that there's no flow to the posts because they're all of differing subjects.



    Yes, also this. And a new subject in an "Everything" thread can...

    Sig bet? I'll take the under on 51.5 wins. Winner chooses loser's sig for next offseason (through to game 1 of 2015-16 regular season).
  13. General policy suggestion: "Everything ________" threads

    Hi RR,

    I have a small suggestion for the forums.

    One important factor that makes a user want to check the forums is to see if there's been new discussion or new posts or topics.

    I know...

    May not be conventional thinking, because "Defense wins championships!", but it reminds me a little of the 7SOL Suns... you can be an awesome defensive team but you need SOMEBODY to score the ball. ...

    This seems to benefit from a lot of hindsight is 20/20 thinking.

    Lesser of two evils though. Lowry wanted that five-year guaranteed money and we ended up giving the player option on year 4. I imagine something similar happened with Demar. He probably wanted either...

    Holy shit. We broke TWO summer league records. Fewest points in a quarter and most points allowed in a quarter.

    They outscored us by 42 points in the second half, 63-21.

    Raps set record for fewest points in a summer league quarter. Play Buycks the whole quarter. Classic.

    When they write the book on Demar Derozan, I'm pretty sure that no one will ever be able to say he didn't live up to his potential or make the most of his opportunities.
