    I have zero dog in the fight, probably like more Raptors players, but what I've seen of the second half so far, Raptors are getting away with murder

    Toronto is essentially the new Detroit. When the Nuggets went there early in the season it was a bloodbath. Danny Green’s method of getting open was to hit his defender in the face and the cut for a shot. They are tough and desperate.

    I believe that Portland made all of these deals in a single offseason and then still made the conference finals a few years later.

    Allen Crabbe 4/75
    Evan Turner 4/70
    Meyers Leonard 4/41
    Mo Harkless 4/42

    Portland can probably offload Turner with a pick, but I doubt they will give up a pick. Leonard’s value is high and Harkless is fine for $11m so they’re in a more flexible place than they’ve been in a couple of years.

    Durant couldn't win with Harden and Westbrook in OKC. How is he going to win in New York?

    I think he's a better and more complete player now than he was when he left OKC and over time Russ has proven to be a difficult guy to play with.

    But I get your point. I think him going to the Knicks is one of those "careful what you wish for" scenarios. Anything less than a championship will be considered a failure, and the NY media and fans will be unrelenting. It's an odd spot for a guy who isn't known for being thick skinned when it comes to criticism.

    He's way better now. Plus he'll be in the East. If Kawhi leaves Toronto he only has to get through Injury Embiid/Cant Shoot Simmons or Giannis/Middleton, that's if Middleton stays this summer.

    New as of last night is the Clippers may land KD. I think this summer's free agency is going to be fun and there will be a new super team somewhere. Either LA team, either NY team or a reshaped Boston.

    As Wob notes, major free agency implications here:



    No supermax for Brad Beal or Klay. Less money Warriors can offer means more room to resign both Klay and KD. Less money for Wizards so they don't have too supermax contracts between JOHN WALL LOL and BB.

    Supermax offers available for Damian Lillard and Kemba Walker. Damian will get offered and accept but I could see Kemba getting offered but declining. Hornets are doomed for the next two years at least.

    The Warriors are probably going to win another title without a 2x NBA Finals MVP. That's how loaded they are.

    You’ll get that with a manufactured dynasty.

    Bucks might be done.

    Don't want to stop the ball and don't want to share the ball for the 3rd game straight.
