    No. There's too many pinned as it is. They take half the screen real estate, so I have to keep scrolling down to find the threads that I care about. We probably all have different threads that we care about. For me it's the Prospects and Belleville, but I'd be happy to sacrifice them if it means the other pinned threads are gone as well.

    If a thread is popular enough it'll stay afloat all on its own.

    Anddd Casey gets fired. At first I thought it was a huge mistake l, but I think he took them as far as he could and now they need someone else to put them over the top

    They should hire Lebron to coach. Problem solved.

    I don’t follow the Raptors too closely. What do they need to put them over the top? Besides a new coach I mean.

    Players better than DeRozan and Lowry, which is incredibly difficult at this point.

    I thought they were good? Do they need to surround them with better players?

    They're good but not great. Have never met expectations in the playoffs.

    The bench they had this year was great, perhaps the best in the NBA. But in the playoffs it's all about your best players and DeRozan and Lowry have constantly underperformed.

    It's the NBA, it's been a two team League forever.

    Could see the Raps trading Ibaka for Whiteside.

    Both have their issues, same age and positions, but Whiteside has shown up in the playoffs, where Serge never really has.

    Maybe Demar gets traded. His lack a of 3pt shot makes him less valuable, but Masai might as well try. They won't be able to trade Lowry because his 30mil per extension kicks in.

    Yeah, that’s realistic.

    Seems to be what it takes to beat Lebron

    Derozan’s 3-point shot was much better this year though. It’s just unfortunate that they could never get both Lowry and him to show up at the same time for games in the playoffs

    The Celtics don't care who they're playing.

    Aren't they locked in a time loop playing the Lakers forever? In my mind they are anyhow

    I know :-( I thought this was the year they could actually go to the finals. The bench mob was fire. However, did not transition to the post season. A lot like the Hawks of '15.

    DeMar did make strides in his 3 game last year but he's still unfortunately well below league average for a player of his position.

    Frustrating how Kyle and DeMar always seem out of rhythm in the playoffs, and Serge was supposed to be the guy that came up big when the couldn't. Sigh...

    I'd really like to see the Raps go big, literally. Go rock the rim cerca Shaq era.

    If the could hustle DeMar for Kawhi, look out.

    How dare you diminish the last golden era of Italian soccer. We had some stacked teams. We prefer tactically sound, not defensive. Possession over kick and run.

    If they could do something like DeRozan and a 1st for Kawhi, that could turn things around in the playoffs quick. Who better to guard LeBron that the best perimeter defender in the NBA?

    Yeah what the hell is that guy talking about, Italy was arguably the strongest nation in the 2000s.
