    I was watching the game and said to my wife, " 4th quarter, Friday night in Detroit and nothing crazy has happened yet". Should have known better.

    Triano was out of his depth as a head coach but he was also given a horrible roster. He had no chance.

    Casey got too much blame two years ago and probably too much credit last year. Of course,...

    This was discussed last year on the board and I believe there was a quote from a coach (can't recall who) to the effect that coaches ran ISO for stars late cause: ego of the players involved and,...

    You realize that difference between 5-6 points per 100 possessions is a huge difference. Right?

    The defense has struggled recently but the system and schemes are sound - team was top 10 last year.

    Can the Raps beat an elite Eastern conference team in the playoffs featuring Amir, Hayes and PP late in the game? Can that group stop Noah and Gasol? Can they control the Cavs bigs? Can they contain...

    So, um, the Raps are good now, huh? Can't wait till this team goes out west and plays some of the big boys on the road. I am dying to watch some great basketball that actually involves my team.

    Something is clearly wrong with JV's hand and Amir's ankles.

    Otherwise, 7-1. Wow. Two big tests coming up. Bring on the Bulls.

    Awesome. No broadcast in western Canada without having all 5 SN channels. Meanwhile, Sportsnet 1 has a tape delay of the Federation Cup final. They could show that any time of day. Hate Rogers.

    Solid win against a sneaky good Atlanta team despite the fact that a few guys struggled offensively.

    Some questionable play/decisions down the stretch from the head coach on down but I'll chalk...

    Not sure about the premise of this article. There is solid depth on the perimeter but an injury to JV, Patterson or Amir and the front court rotation looks pretty shaky. Ready for 30 minutes each...

    Fairly proud of myself. I made it through almost 2:00 minutes of a summer league game before turning it off.

    I don't know how you guys watch this stuff. Just awful.

    Ujiri and his scouts needed multiple visits to evaluate him as a pick, so it is unclear to me how anyone here can draw conclusions after 20 mins in summer league.

    As much as I am sure those other guys were just beating down Ujiris door begging to sign in Toronto, it seems more likely that was absolutely not happening.

    It has no impact on signing anyone else. It is not material next year as Williams expires and GV will be in the final year of a deal. Easily movable.

    Why does everyone not understand that free...

    Although, in fairness, salary inflation through free agency is inevitable as owners' revenues increase (as DanH pointed out). And at least the NBA GMs waited a year before blowing their brains out...

    I hate to say I told you do Matt but..... I told you so. More cause competitive balance or something. Lol.

    Yes. What people don't understand is that these UFA deals are going to be even richer going forward. This deal already looks good but it may look like a steal next offseason.

    It's not the Lowry...

    Free agency doesn't work that way. Market goes up all the time.

    You pay huge premiums in free agency. Just the way it is. Why you have to draft well and make shrewd trades.

    Lol at people complaining about paying Lowry 12/5 but in love with Parsons at 10/4 (or more).

    The difference between paying 9 or 10 for Lowry vs 12/13 is immaterial. The difference between...

    And do what? Can't keep taking one step forward and two backwards all the time. People are way to worried about a few million extra each year.

    Um, ok. You realize in his second year Ross went 11/3/1 shooting about 42%.

    So, you expect an 18/19 year old with no experience to play 25 mins and put up similar numbers. I think you'd better...

    We'll, DD and Ross are going to eat most of the wing minutes and they need to add a vet there as well, so I don't know whether he even sees the floor this year. But, who knows? Raps are due for one...

    The pick made more sense to me when I thought they were stashing him somewhere. Guess we will see if he is two years away from being two years away......
