Good luck to u boys!

I don't think Lowry will be healthy enough by the end of TOR's playoffs run this year. He takes so many charges to his body which is bad enough, but he also swipes his hands inside all the time too. I was actually a little surprised his hands didn't get hurt earlier, like in one aggressive defensive sequence I saw in game 2. Kawhi also swipes in or pushes out, but he's smart to avoid injury and stop after a couple fouls. Siakam is an absolute beast though, hopefully he can keep it up all playoffs. What a fantastic duo to have in Siakam and Kawhi. And if Kawhi leaves, at least Siakam will be a legit All-Star, the new, young face of the team.

Proud of the team for making it this far. Stealing one on the road was nice. AG showed up in the post season, so he gained a lot of respect from me. Time to see what Weltman can do this offseason.

One of the most underrated things I wanted to say as soon as the playoffs finished. Maybe by not as much as we'd think though, based on the defensive attention they drew, which was arguably the #1 and #2 most game-planned players to double and lock down from TOR's side.

Great series Raptors.

Simply outmatched. But it is what it is. We just have to keep moving forward and build on this season.

Well that's all folks for this year, lol.

They came a LONG way and definitely exceeded expectations from me. I am glad they got a taste of the playoffs and although it stings now, I hope it inspires them to put the time in to come back hard next season. I am actually pretty grateful that they actually made me smile some this season, which is not something i have done regarding this team in a while. It's been a wild one. Now on to the summer of change.

GG magic fans you guys had a good year.

At the very least AG looked solid and most likely the Magic saved themselves from Giving Nikola that monster contract that he’s looking for.

You can thank Marc Gasol for that.

Definately a valuable experience. Different type of game in the POs.

Valuable experience in playoffs.
Got crushed by much better team.
At least now we know how far off Magic players are from top of the league

Baby steps. I hate that we lost but I loved that Isaac and AG found out what NBA playoff basketball is all about. Bamba to to a certain extent.

Good series.

Loved game 4 down at Amway. Wicked time at the bars before and after, arena was great, fans were welcoming and the **** talk in the streets was fun as hell.

Also... one mega highlight... Chef Eddie's just down from amway... unreal. One of my favorite meals of all time.

Hated watching that series. We got beat by a better team no question, but the refs were awful, Kyle Lowry plays the game the wrong way and our vets shrunk into the shadows when the pressure was on.

Congrats to any Raps fans on here, your team clearly deserved the series win. Hopefully JW can improve us this offseason.
