It was nice to see him get the Lebron assignment - I want to see what he can do. I really liked the possession where Lebron literally backed him down as hard as he could and then Lebron missed the lay up. It shows you how hard Lebron is working against OG. To be fair, Lebron doesn't look as athletic right now - seems to be a little out of shape.

The Raptor defensive schemes are really amazing. The play a quasi zone off ball and do crazy switches in the middle of the other teams offensive actions (without even talking). Ridiculous.


He doesn't look out of shape at all. If you watched the Clipper game he was his old self. When OG was out and Powell was on him, he went to work and he blew by Powell.


He does have bursts - yes, but it's the subtle things I see where he seems a little off - like he's not aggressively driving during a fast break, his footwork seems off during lay ups eg. he's not jumping as easily off one foot and needs two to gather, he's not getting great lift during his finishes - yes some of it is age but he also looks maybe 10-15 lbs too heavy which doesn't look like anything on his frame but yea...
Pretty neat and on the fridge for the real fans:

Only a handful of players have ever given Lebron a - 20 game.

During our championship season, wouldn't trade Lowry for any PG in the east.

Kyle Lowry is the most fun basketball player to watch for those that understand the game.
