    If you asked me at the start of the season if this picture was possible I'd say you were tripping (Both being champs and Kyle and Kawhi being close)

    Working, probably.

    One or two coworkers will be skipping to attend, but they're diehards.

    As fun as this run has been, I was 100% a bandwagoner...probably watched more basketball in the past month than I've seen in my entire life. :laugh:

    I can't justify losing a day's pay just to stand among a sea of screaming, inebriated fans. I watched the game last night, that's good enough for me.

    Portland I don’t think so. Dame and CJ are a little more predictable to gameplan for in a 7 game series and the Blazers aren’t as good of a defensive team.

    I think the Sixers were the second best team in the east once they acquired Tobias Harris. They could have given the Warriors problems the same way the Raptors did with balance and a skilled 4 to attack Draymond Green.

    Aside from the Warriors with a healthy KD-Klay I don’t think anyone can match the depth and balance the Raptors have on both O and D. The Gasol-Ibaka and Lowry-FVV duos played a huge role and they didn’t even have OG.

    If Kawhi stays they’ve got a real chance at the finals again.

    Portland would have been deeper and fresher but I would have taken Toronto in 6 or 7.


    1) Milwaukee.

    2) If we're including the current state with all the injuries that happened to Golden State, possibly both. More so Milwaukee than Philadelphia with Embid being in and out.

    Not the way I would put it., I'd go with "the Leafs have never ever looked less relevant than they do today."

    I'm sure the same was said about the Leafs nearly 25 years ago as well.

    They're still the #1 draw in Toronto sports at the end of the day though.

    I think it was a crappy game 6 because of the Thompson injury. Klay hits that shot Steph missed 100%. Steph is the most unclutch player. Those 3's are a piece of cake for him in the RS. He hits that shot 10/10 times in the RS.

    Game 6 was the best game of the series until Klay got hurt, it was a foregone conclusion after that.

    There should be a door between those two for the Spurs because he ended them as well.

    The reason I ask is that Portland did give the Raps a fair amount of trouble in the RS.

    So the Raps are in a very rare position right now.

    Do they visit the White House, or Ottawa, as league champions?

    Will Trump even invite them?

    Will Trudeau, looking to cash in during an election year?

    Canadian team, with no Canadian players.

    Well, depending on the offseason, Toronto may be next.

    Yeah, the Blazers backcourt is always problems and Lillard always seems to bring his best against the Raptors.

    There's really no reason for them to go to the Whitehouse, regardless of who is President. I could definitely see them visiting the Whitehouse.

    Was the whole WH visit a thing in 1993? Did the Habs visit either leader after they won?
