And so it begins *grabs popcorn*

EDIT: This this this this

Kawhi rightfully deserves the accolades he received for his championship with Toronto, but the leftover Raptors proved this year they had a great team surrounding Leonard. This time around, Kawhi was unable to elevate the play of his teammates to a championship level.

The Clippers don’t have a single tradable draft pick until 2028.


Oof! They are gonna need to hire Colangelo for a much needed "internal growth" quote.

Maybe we can do what they did to us and camp out at their arena letting their pending free agents know we are poaching and interfering with contractual relations.

Paul George is absolute trash, I don't know many from Indiana that were sad to see him go. What a dumbass organization.

I love KL2 and will always appreciate his 1 year here. But when you speak against him you're a hater. As good as he's been, he has always been in the right situation to succeed. When he has to make something out of nothing, he's been nothing special.

I hope these little "we the north" fans now see what happens when you build a team based on emotions, instead of strategy. Ujiri said F off for the PG trade if it was true. I doubt it. Whereas the clippers went all in. Internal growth with Shai and their picks would have been better imo.

It was so messed up that the Clippers were allowed to get away having Frank camping in Toronto, and Rivers blatantly tampering and calling Uncle Dennis all season, and LeBron James randomly showing up at the Raptors Hotel and poaching Kawhi during the Philly Series. The stuff that the Raptors had to deal with all the way until the end of that Season man...

The funny thing is that people are now slagging the Clippers as having the WORSE Roster around Kawhi, than the Raptors had. I think the Raptors gained alot of respect in the NBA this year, despite losing to Boston. They gained credibility as a Team.

Imagine if ujiri was in charge of the clippers right now. He’d rightfully gut half the team and the coach.

Things are about to get even worse for the clippers. Kawhi was hobbling after the first round the way he was in the finals last year. He physically was never going to make it to the finals again

Man with the Clippers going down, if we did not choke against Boston we had a damn nice path to win it all again. I think Miami would have been an easier series for us and the Lakers don't scare anybody. What a missed opportunity.
On Gerald Henderson vs Derozan:
"Yes. Hendo is quite a bit better than DeMar.
So yes, I do believe he's currently the better player and do project that will continue to be in the future. I would also take Turner over DD."

Plus the bragging rights of saying we went further than Kawhi

Return to Toronto Raptors
