    Again, I think you're missing my point. Your description of poise is great, albeit it is an opinion. Which is basically my argument with Casey's choice of riding Salmons. It's his opinion that...

    Again, what is poise? It's an innate characteristic that can't be measured or understood. It's an assumption used to explain an outcome. Does John Salmons have poise? How do you get more poise? Does...

    This really is going nowhere, but this is just more opinion. Simply playing in playoff games has no bearing on becoming a better playoff performer. Your point about rookies and sophomores is another...

    Re: the first bold, what is the "it" that Lillard has? Another immeasurable observation. I would say he has elite skill. That's why he was successful yesterday.

    I was with you until the 4 vs 5 comment as this hasn't deterred Casey in the past (I.e. Hayes, Novak). I do agree that Fields might help but isn't the saviour. Fouls will be huge in this series in...

    x1000. I would even throw Amir on JJ. Pierce isn't what hurt us until the last few minutes. Amir's presence on Pierce the whole game did. He's pulled away from being able to provide help and JJ used...

    Absolutely agree with the bold. This is one area of player development that is often misunderstood. Most people think that players need to learn from their mistakes on the court which again, isn't...

    I know you meant to say first game, so I won't harp on that. Here is where my issue with experience lies: it is immeasurable and based on opinion. Your statement is not fact. I disagree that...

    I can't for the life of me understand Casey's infatuation with Salmons. It boggles my mind that so many people can see his lack of production and usefulness on D and yet the head coach of an NBA...

    I'm not worried about the Raps drawing fouls against the Nets. Brooklyn doesn't have any elite defenders and will be a step slow. Raps will get to the line if they're aggressive. I AM worried about...

    Raptors Tweet Zone. It's a hashtag used by Raps fans on twitter to "be a part of the conversation". #RTZ

    Stuff like this drives me crazy. I would have no problem with MLSE or ticketmaster charging these prices as the money spent would support the people who deserve it. Not to call you out or anything,...

    Is this legit? The Rock have a home game on Friday so I can't imagine this pic is real. With the price of playoff tickets I would expect a nicer shirt too lol.

    This is a great idea for a thread. Top 10 Raptor dunks of all time as voted by the Republic. Make brackets. Let's do this.

    Completely agree about the matchup with Charlotte. Easiest lineup to deal with and Raps would get benefit of the whistle in that series.

    100% agree. Not a favourable matchup for Toronto, due to the high-profile franchise factor. That said, nothing would be sweeter then sending the geezers to the retirement home early.

    My point is that most people here are thinking that a first round victory is a sure thing. I'm not a pessimist, but a realist. Disagree about your chess comparison. In chess you have the ability to...

    Or Nets. I think Brooklyn is the most likely matchup. You said it yourself, Chicago isn't going to lose again this season. Raptors might.

    Lol if Gary's ripped stature gives him an advantage over another accountant in a competition then it actually is sport.

    Don't look now but Indy reclaimed top spot in EC tonight. Since everyone seems to be looking to the 2nd round already (foolishly), would you rather play BKN to avoid MIA if they stay in 2nd place?

    For what it's worth, this is the second from Team Canada's Olympic curling team. Looks fairly fit to me!

    This is the problem. The bolded is YOUR opinion. It obviously isn't the opinion of the majority of TSN's viewers, or the Raptors would take precedence over the other non-big-4 sports.

    Completely agree with the bolded. Obviously the budgets are higher for a network like ABC, but the Raptors production team isn't even comparable. I guess it all comes down to fans though. The more...
