He literally has credentials in his hand on that hug lol.
Ujiri doesn't have a cell phone? He could literally Google his own ass and show it to the Sheriff.
Funny thing is, he's not even the general manager. The actual GM is some 34 year old guy named Bobby Webster. He's been the GM since 2017, although I'm not convinced he actually exist.
Apparently the Jays went in 92 to visit G HW Bush, but Clinton didnt invite them.
Doubt the Habs went either.
I love listening to that cancer TBH.
Wrong! They have a Canadian player! Chris Boucher from Montreal.
Fine, no Canadian starters.
Bryan Colangelo had burner Twitter accounts, Masai has a burner GM!
ok have it your way
If you had watched the game, you would have realized that the last 0.9 seconds of the game took like 10 minutes to actually play out.
So they had plenty of time to get used to the idea.
nothing on the 02 lakers. they acted like they had just won a regular season game
start at 11:00
I just watched Skip Bayless on yesterdays That a Wrap, and its pretty clear he is the absolute worst person in sports commentary. His tears are wonderful, and I hope he never gets ti celebrate again.
Zach Lowe is the best in the business. Great articles and podcasts.
Ramona Shelburne also did a good job on Klay and the Warriors.
Lmfao it's a torn ACL
After watching the Stanley Cup finals the day before, the NBA celebration came off as a joke.
The whole thing came off backwards. From Silver giving congrats to the ownrrs/coaches first and giving them the trophy, to the league trophy going out first and then the MVP.
The raps celebrated like they just beat the Knicks. I don't know if it was because the last 10 seconds took an eternity to play out, or they weren't as excited because of all the injuries GS had, but it was a pretty lackluster celebration and trophy presentation.
At least they looked to be enjoying themselves once the bubbly arrived in the locker room.
This is what I don't get.
Everyone talks about the GS dynasty, but with a couple injuries they lost in 6. They barely eeked out a couple close wins, and most of their losses weren't even close. Game 2 was close until the raps thought the 3rd quarter didn't matter.
The years GS won championships they were on the other side of the injury front, beating up on teams with key players out.
It will be a long, long time (if ever) before any team in any sport goes to 5 finals straight, but let's not pretend that Golden State didn't have a Golden horseshoe up their @$$ either.
I know the raptors would have been hard up to beat GS with a healthy Durant and Thompson not missing game 3 or the last quarter of game 6, but it's kind of ironic that the legitimacy of the raps championship is coming into question given the last 5 years of the Warriors could be completely different if they were going up against healthy teams in the conference and league finals.
He can hit pretty much nail any shot he wants at will.
It's just Toronto (or anyone) can completely change their defense when they only have to protect against Curry, and not the trio of Curry, Durant and Thompson.
Except a go ahead shot with <20 seconds left. He’s 0-8 on this in his career.
And if Thompson is out there for that play one of those two hit a 3 9/10 times on a set play like that.
Toronto can play curry much tighter without Thompson out there.
Teams have to spread out there defense and be much more aware that there are two highly skilled 3 point shooters with Thompson.
That doesn't mean Curry is a fraud, anyone who thinks so is dilusional.
Oh he’s definitely not a fraud, but he’s also not a player who can dominate a game in iso like many other top players.
He’s an elite shooter, likely the best in history, but he’s struggled under pressure in his career and needs help on the court to be able to consistently dominate offensively because he struggles to create space when the defense can focus on him.
What about game 3 of the finals? Did pretty well there. I think it's too premature to label him as not being able to dominate ISO. He's never really had to done it for an extended period of time in his career. We will see what happens this upcoming season, but I expect Harden esque numbers.
Go look at the dressing room celebrations lol
You always need some good fortune to win. Look no further than Leonard's game winning shot at the buzzer in game 7 of the ECSF.
Otherwise we might be talking about a potential Philadelphia or Milwaukee championship while saying same old Raptors.
Separate names with a comma.
