Raps are driving team with shorter players on the wings. The Bucks are pure length and wall off the paint. If the Raps can't loosen up the defense with the 3-point shot (or any jumpshot for that matter), how can they expect to win?

Jason Kidd also isn't a bad coach. No matter how much people wish it were true, he actually has the chops for the job. He's not perfect, but he's improving. And I think he's a scumbag human, but that doesn't make him a bad coach.

damn.. those scrubs blown that 30ish lead..

atleast we won't be signing Lowry to a max even if we win this series. It's clear he just can't perform in the post season.


lol Masai signed Demarre scrub Carroll like he was a hot commodity at 12:01AM, I highly doubt he lets Lowry walk.

There is basically no trolling anyone can lay on a Raptors fan or player right now that wouldn't be completely appropriate and frankly deserved.
We both agree that having this concept of if we make the playoffs, that's all we need to do here? Neither of us is interested in that. This ownership, Masai and his staff, is focused on one thing: the NBA championship. - Tim Leiweke

You and I both know there's no chance they do that though.

The funny thing is I don't even blame Masai for this mess. These guys are a better team than they'll looked this series. We've all seen them play much better than this.

Not to take anything away from Milwaukee, because the Bucks are playing great and Giannis is a superstar.

Basically though, the Bucks are maximizing their potential. The Raptors are absolutely not maximizing the potential they have on their roster.

I think that's the fault of coaching (e.g., how **** hard is it over the course of an 82 game season to figure out how to beat a trapping defense?) and players who just don't seem to have the mental strength to deal with playoff adversity and intensity.

When you thought the Bucks in 6 meme was a joke but now it's looking more of a reality

It's always exciting to see a team that you can see is on the rise and the fans in the arena that kind of understand this too and the energy they create with that anticipation and excitement.

If we actually had an offensive system this team would look much better.

Don't laugh too hard. Magic's going to give up a real asset for DeRozan this summer

People laughed at me when I said I'd rather play the Raptors than the Bucks.

I've been big on the Bucks upside for 3 years. Never expected Giannis to be a generational type player either. This team with healthy Jabari can win the east in the next couple years.

Also Bucks have built a low key epic, rabid fan base and the new ownership seems much improved. The crowd reminds me of OKC in some ways for a so called small town to be so raucous and fun.
