I think we're looking at 10 wins at most from here on out, no more than 30 wins this year.

I honestly expect us to lose the next 3 games against the Bulls, Cavs, and Knicks.
Hopefully I'm right.

Loving this kid.


There are definitely some nice players that will go later in the lottery and first round. I just feel like the 6-10 range (probably where the Raptors will pick) is horrible value in this draft.

10 is too much. I see around 5-6 wins IF we lose some of these games the next two weeks. This is by far our easiest stretch.

Good thing is the bulls don’t even own their pick since they gave it in the Vuc deal so they have no reason to not want to win and make the Play ins

Are you still high on Petrusev ? I think I remember you bringing him up last season but he pulled his name from the draft last second.
I think he's projected to go in the second round this year.

Petrusev in the second is a no brainer. He has an athletic frame, moves well and can protect the paint. He has played NCAA and Euro league. He probably projects as bench big. He can hit the three too.

I could see us taking this guy back end of the lottery if we make a playoff run. He's a good athlete and has a great motor.

Lol I saw that too. Baynes is feared.

He's built like a WWE wrestler. Dude is too big for basketball haha
Prediction, April 2021. Raps will get the #9 pick in the 2021 NBA Draft and select Moses Moody.

Lol it’s so funny how big and strong Baynes is and yet when he shoots it looks like he has to use everything to get the ball to the rim like a kid :lol:

I'm a big Scottie Barnes fan.

If the Raps miss the play-in and don't win a top 3 pick, this is the guy I'm hoping they're looking at seriously (i.e. 7-10th)

I'm the one that's been high on Petrusev. If he falls to the 2nd round, no brainer. Though would probably have to negotiate a contract of at least $2 million per year for 3 years. I would like to get a late 1st for him. Maybe trade the two 2nds.

I'd be happy to get 1 of Queta or Petrusev with an additional 1st pick.

After watching the OG thing again, it looks like it could very well have at least some intent. His other hand goes under Schroeder’s leg to cause the drop lol

It’s not that likely but if the league does announce a 1 game suspension for it, I won’t be surprised. It’s the Lakers after all. The league will always protect them in any case

They should suspend OG for a week. He could use the rest tbh.

Oh yeah lets rest him the rest of the season to be safe.

I heard FVV and Siakim laughed at the OG thing. The league needs to suspend both for the remainder of the season too.

How long do you guys think it would take us to get back to the finals with Cade? His second year? Third?

You're that sold on Cade? I still can't separate him, Green and Mobley.
