I can't believe the Sixers are playing Monroe. He was awful yesterday.

Yeah we should tank Hinkie style, so we can get to the 2nd round every year, if we have a chance to get a guy as talented as Embiid in one of the years lmao.

Embiid's tears are sweet, I'll say that.

Probably the OJ Mayo special in which he claimed not to do opioids and instead pain meds.

His career is essentially over. So much talent too

trust me this board would complain about going to the second Rd every year and losing when you have 3 all stars on the team. and won 40 games in 3 seasons to get to that point starting 7 years ago

If Kawhi and the Raps win this, this has to rank as one of the best surprise chip runs of all time?

Eerily similar to us in 04, after getting Sheed, and as well as bunch of people the year prior before him.

Definitely reminiscent of 2004.

I couldn't believe the Raps were about to win the championship and then they didn't.

Warriors in 7.

I never doubt that Raptors' fans would do something stupid before the end of their team's run...

There was footage from a nearby bar in TOR and they're all cheering and such in such an obnoxious way with KD's injury.

Really confirms all of our feelings for that fanbase. I really don't want them to win the chip, because it would unleash the floodgates of even more obnoxious behavior. More stupid Raptors buses coming down from Toronto to "invade" the LCA as usual.

I have a lot of friends who are raptor fans and I do have a soft spot for the team since I watched so much of them when I lived there. Unfortunately they have some really awful fans too. A lot of bandwagon fair-weather fans that are horrible.
I do want them to win, but those a-hole fans don't deserve it.

It was bad enough at the stadium yesterday that the Raptors players had to scold them.

I hope I'm wrong but I feel like the Warriors win out now.

I stop watching with 3 minutes left to go stay with my girl. I was 100% sure the game was over and Toronto were the champions. I was shocked today when I saw they lost.

When they were a bad team, I remember GSW were by far the most obnoxious fans here on realgm, and nowadays they're fine. I hope the same happen with Toronto fans after they win a championship.

Yeah, with 3 minutes left I thought "holy ****, they actually did it!"

Whoops.

Im not a Raps fan, but watching the game (and the series), they are just playing harder. Every time GS turns the ball over you see 4 guys either hang their heads or stare at each other instead of getting back on d. Tor is attacking the paint and moving the ball better too. Gotta be discouraging.

Might be more like game 5 in 2005 when Hory stole the series after Sheeds **** up defensively. But we'll see, Raps are still just 1 game away.

Dubs had some bad luck with injuries, but happy to see the Raptors win the championship. Zero lottery picks on the entire Raptors roster. Wow. Great team win. Let the offseason begin.
