The Toronto series was so close, I got to believe we would have won if Joel was a little healthier or if Ben was just a little more developed, or if the two of them were a little better deployed. Of course, we also would have won game 7 if we could have gotten a couple of decent shots off during that 3 minute stretch towards the end. After that, did we match up well against the Bucks? Better than against the Raptors I think. We're so close, and any further positive movement should put us over. But Kawhi is probably the best player in the league at the moment. If we had him this year instead of Ben, we'd be in the finals. If we got him as a free agent this summer, I think we'd be unstoppable. But I also think we're capable of beating him and anybody else next year if our two guys continue to develop and Brett uses them right.

I wouldn't do those deals. Raps will probably get swept with; Kawhi leaves for LA. Just need guys to stay healthy, keep Butler, and Simmons needs to work on his shot.
