tool up.

this season was a wash from the get-go. playing every game like it's an away game, players dropping like flies, even had a stretch were 4 of our starters were out with covid including our head and a*sistance coach and still forced to play, aron baynes...when it's all said and done, would rather them be picking in the draft than to play in that weird a*s play-in tournament only to get smashed by brooklyn.

Honestly think they should blow it up..... 76ers, Bucks, Nets are just too dominant for the next few years. They need to plot of getting a young core with potential.... Paschal and Van Fleet will decline by the time a window opens for them

We had our run. Still got good core pieces in Fred pascal and OG to stay competitive. We got a ring out of it Atleast.

No chance we win another ring unless we swipe a superstar like kawhi from somewhere again.

Serious question, if there weren't any fans, why would Raps playing in Toronto affect them that much?

The COVID lockdowns in Toronto have been the longest in any city since March 2020. The cases and incompetency of their leader Doug Ford (Ontario Premier) resulted in them playing in Tampa to avoid back and forth travel. The visiting teams would have to follow quarantine rules after landing in Canada which would not be possible therefore they agreed on Tampa.

Yeah I understood that but my question was, how does it affect them negatively?

There was no home crowd stuff this year, so basically just a gym

Familiarity with facility and comfort.
Being home with family (many players got condos and homes in the city)
There are multiple home game stretches that last 4-6 games in a row in a season. Past 5 seasons they were always top 6 in the league for best home records.
Covid protocols as numerous players missed time because of contact tracing.

I feel you. I just think in a season with no crowds, home court is a bit overrated. It's not like they didn't have a home base this year.

Who knows, next year will be normal though

If they run this crew back again even in Toronto they’ll have another disappointing season. You can only hope they draft pick is in the top 5 and they find a shot creator in the off season. You can’t rely on siakam as your 1st option.

losing ibaka and marc gasol really hurt this team compared to last season . we lost our entire interior defense basically

retooling won't get this team anywhere past a first round exit at best ...

we won the ring , it looks like Masai is on his way out (He was on auto pilot basically all season)

They can't rely on Birch, Baynes and G League kid to give them quality mins in the front court. The first priority is to sign a legit big man in free agency. The second issue is revamping the bench with Malachi Richardson leading the group. He has shown potential and is getting better when Nurse let him play big mins.

GTJ is going to demand at least 12-18 mill per season with Siakam, Fvv and OG tying up majority of the cap space dont know if they have the money to resign GTJ or go after a legit big man who can start at 4/5. This is where I can see a trade being pulled off for the right pieces to have cap space flexibility.

Webster/Masai have some work to do during this summer but I believe with a legit big man and polishing up bench they can compete for a top 6 seed next season.

We 100% make the playoffs this year if healthy and at home. But I’m not mad, we have a legit shot to get into the top 5 of the draft.
As for the team... well We sold the farm for a championship, now it’s about stocking it back up and developing young players. If we make the playoffs next season thats cool, if not I’m not worried as long as I see something from the lotto pick and the young guys like Trent, OG and Flynn.

FVV and Siakam are what they are and should keep us competitive. I’d honestly trade them for the right price.

Close to getting it together, claw back to .500 and were something like 4th in the East... and then that fu*king covid hit and it was a wrap IMMEDIATELY. Guys coming back never recovered. The last game we played against washington was the first time Siakam and FVV played their regular rotation minutes for an entire game, since coming back from covid. I mean, they tried it when they first came back but they would just hit a wall and stall every game. Who tf could have predicted covid?


Kyle is gone... dunno if outright or sign-and-trade. Depends on if a team this playoffs loses simply because they had no point guard play.

GTJ your new starting SG.

See what kind of work Khem puts in, in the summer he might comeback as back-up 5. Get rid of Baynes for some dental care products... and see if we can get a legit 6'11+ big.

... plus we got a pick.

One season of not making the playoffs isn’t bad especially considering they won’t it all just a few seasons ago.

I don’t think they need to do anything drastic.

Masai and our FO with this high of a draft pick?



Can't go wrong man a lot of players want to be drafted by us simply because they know how good our development program is.
