BTW Ryan Hollins is a real wasteman... He said the warriors didn't need kd to win and as soon as we end up winning he's one of the media guys that was openly adamant that it was an asterisk championship because of the injuries. Guy couldnt even stick to his argument... If he's gonna say warriors didn't need kd he should've also been highly in praise of us beating the warriors. What a **** clown. Just straight hating.

Too bad rose couldnt be right about the kawhi signing.

Didn't think this was thread worthy, as it is old, so I'll stick it here.

David Griffin: "Noise around a superteam is deafening. It can cause combustible conditions. “The reason is LeBron is getting all the credit and none of the blame. And that’s not fun for people,” Griffin says. “They don’t like being part of that world.”"

LeBron got the blame for all of his GM decisions. There really wasn't a lot to give credit to Griffin for. IIRC he didn't pick Kyrie. LeBron made the decision to come back by himself. We can debate whether Love came about due to tampering from LeBron or Griffin. Otherwise, the only major deal Griffin made was the Mozgov etc. trade. That was a good one in terms of role players, but it's not exactly the Kawhi trade.

People still talk about the comical overpays of guys like TT and JR being something LeBron pushed for and not Griffin's screwup.

The best description I can think of for how John Stockton played the game is that he played like a man who was a father of six children, with zero job security. Legend.

I love this description. He played with a sense of duty and professionalism. His handle was pretty tight too, he can get past almost anyone he wanted too. Plus he was tough.

Stockton did everything (including playing dirty) to win. His assist record will never be broken. Utah fans booed his selection in the draft. Pretty incredible career.

Haslem signed for another year :lol:
1. Using a team's play in games their star is injured should send you to SSS jail
2. ORTG/DRTG ranks are connected in back and forth play and energy expenditure
3. RAPM/RPM is proven measuring regular season value, but not postseason

Return to Toronto Raptors
