Skip that you?


Damn, you raptors fans just can't **** even try to act graceful, can you? Then again, class is not something you can learn or acquire. You're either raised with it or you're not. Keep it classy, Raps fans!



After seeing the posts that followed showing how you have acted the last 2 days, I find it hilarious you were talking about class.

Beyond class there is a thing you call respect and its earned, you clearly have done nothing to earn that.

Did you just tell someone else to stay classy right after you called Kawhi a douchebag?


Sorry, didn't realize you were related to him. I'm so sorry for calling a douchebag a douchebag. Happy now?


How do you talk about being classy and then call someone a douchebag? That doesn't even make sense.

Easy there man it was a joke. You talk ab out class but what type of reaction is that for someone who talks about class? Grow up.


Grow up? I gave him props for his greatness and picked your team to win. But instead of reacting positively to the comment, you decided to gloat. It's not me who needs a lesson about class.

My personal hatred for him aside, I'm being objective. He's played at a level of greatness - as much as I hate the guy - I can't ignore it. You have to understand, my dislike for him is coming from a very personal place. Raptors fans of all people should know when a beloved star weazels his way out of town and the kind of negative emotion it generates in you as a diehard fan. I know it's easy for you to forget that now that you have another legit superstar and your bias takes over in that you don't care what he did to the other franchise cuz that's not your problem. You root for him, you support him because as far as you're concerned, his slate is clean. But that's not the case for us Spurs fans.

Despite what he did to get out of SA, I have never wished him to be injured or for him to suffer a career-altering experience. Doesn't mean he is absolved of the shenanigans he pulled in San Antonio. Doesn't mean the Raptors bandwagon fans are any less annoying or come across as nothing but a bunch of entitled wannabes (Not referring to hardcore fans. Referring to the casual bandwagoners who just want to look cool). My calling him a douchebag is me stating the reality. Not calling him a douchebag without actual evidence of him acting like one in his last year in SA.

This is the last time I will explain myself. I feel this should be enough the clear the air.

Having said that, Toronto deserves a championship as a city. If it comes at the expense of my displeasure at Kawhi winning one, I will accept that and congratulate you guys. But I can never root for him to win it. I just know given the circumstances and matchups, Raptors got this.

So lets get this straight, curry was getting his ass kicked so badly they had to rush Durant back just to save him and than he tears his achilles? Wow they are desperate, I think raptors close it out in 6.

I need an auto-block for anyone post that discusses how "classy or classless" a fanbase is.

It's idiotic rambling about nothing.

Lol you went on a massive rant on two words from my post. You completely missed the point.

Don't come at me about class when you have shown zero yourself. You have been one of the most disruptive and classless posters here the last few days. I don't really care what else you have to say. No need to reply because I have no intention on responding.

This is going to be an interesting watch given all that has transpired.

Toronto has the firepower and the mojo, but they have to beat the perennial champs at home.

I'll be watching.

Hoping to see a Game 6 Klay similar to the 2016 WCF against OKC. Steph needs to show up with an efficient 30+ point as well. There is no reliable scoring outside of them other than a wild card Cousins who might drop 10-15 but also gifts the Raptors with turnovers, fouls and bad defense.

Just need to treat it as one game again. As Steph said at the end of Game 5, "Stay alive."

Need the raptors to step up their D and keep the offensive intensity up. Take it quarter by quarter, possession by possession. Hardest game of the raptors life.

This is going Game 7 definitely. Not sure if the Warriors will still have the energy (or the bodies) to play that game but this is an all time great team with all time great players in Klay and Steph,i guess anything can happen in that final game.

trade rumours overshadow the finals to some extent. maybe a regulation should be implemented about the off-season trade deadlines.

Nah, the casual fans are not interested in the NBA Finals so i guess the trade rumors at least means no offseason for the NBA and hyping the NBA. It's good for the league.

I think this will dictate the game quite a bit.

Just how much will the Raptors defense bother the Warriors shooters, and which team will make/generate more clean looks?

On a more serious note, raps gotta try and keep game close until mid way 3rd quarter. I think they'll give themselves a chance if they do that since warriors are an Elite 3rd q team. Gotta hope Klay and curry have an off night and raps key guys don't get in foul trouble.
