hahahahahaha! I was overly, terribly optimistic..."if the Raps sweep" If the Raps sweep I said. the series starts the other way around. it is now if Orlando sweeps

the way Orlando swept into the playoffs and secured the 7 was impressive. it showed that they had gelled into a tuff team on their way up and it is going to be a job and a half for THIS Raps team to beat them.

for the Raps and all this shit talk all season long, about waiting for the playoffs to ramp up their game..you are what the fuck you are at all times regardless of the shit you talk. no one pays any goddam attention but to whats going on with the team in real time and the product they put on the floor.

what we saw all along was the real Raps and a jackass, lazy super start in Leonard whom the coach gave over coaching the team to. Leonard's philosophy dominated the team all season long and it is a shit philosophy. he had to play every night that's what, while building a team that could win..by ability and chemistry, by strength of character and determination and how they finished games and all that.

just take a look at Orlando and the way their coach worked! look at how they swept into the playoffs.

as I predicted both Orlando and Brooklyn would beat the Raps early. look at Brooklyn in Philly. the Problem with Philly is the coach. he is a half and half coach. if you have a real good team he may get you to the party but he wont dance with you till the party is over. he cant dance that long. he will get tired and fall asleep. if you want to keep dancing you will have to dance with someone else while he sleeps.. until you are ready to go home and go wake him up

Masai made a huge mistake firing Casey, going for Leonard, trading Valencunis and DeRozan. Leonard is a clear malcontent who is not nearly as good as they make him out to be. if he is good let him play all season and establish the stats that proves his greatness like ALL the other stars..every one of hem who are really great..like that mad man from OKC, a real Giant Russell Westbrook, who is there with you and for you all the way, every day, never complains and goes home every day with his well earned millions

Masai is an arse..proved it with his behavior last year. all his success has gone to his head and he did a lot of precipitous decision-making that certainly has not helped his career. in pique and frustration and power-mad Masai played god. but there is only one god but god..and he aint Masai.

Dwayne Casey did not win because he did not ultimately have a team that could win the NBA at the time. it was Masai's responsibility to know that, to know what could win the NBA and provide such a team for hi coaching staff. the Raptors needed scoring, especially 3-poiny scoring. there are a couple, three guys always floating around who can give such scoring..Bellinelli, Lou Williams and another Italian ace who can give such scoring. go get one of them..they were available.

and you don't trade away a young Valencunis for Gasol at 33..for no reason at all. there is no way I am going to trade Valencunis for Gasol at this stage..maybe if they were both 25. I have watched Valencunis evolve before my eyes into a very strong player. Valencuis began with little but improved himself every minute, all the time by dedication and hard work. those are the qualities in players I love and want on my team..not a lazy kunt like Leonard with his crazy, unnatural philosophy.

if you want to win the NBA..you do not bring in a 33 year old and based the team on him. that skunt i old and tired and ready to pack it in. that is why his old team traded him. no team..no one at all... gives away gold
at any goddam price save for more gold perhaps. why would give more than what you get? Masai did..has. you don't bring in the older guys for leading roles but to complement the side..to put them in in tight conditions when their experience will count... to use their experience to get over.

Masai ended up with a team 2019 worse than in 2018..with a couple 3 useless players on the side like Jeremy Lin whom I sure the coach could not afford to to allow into this game right here. and with Anunoby incapacitated the Raptors are suddenly short-handed badly.

this season is done. this raps team cant really beat any of the top teams. if they come out crazy next game and play above their heads Orlando has the advantage now. and if they do squeak through the Raps cant beat Brooklyn or Boston or Milwaukee or Indiana. this is it for Leonard's team..and it should be it for Leonard in Toronto. if the Raps don't cut ties with Leonard they will be buying a pig in a poke. let him got to California where he wants to be and should be. he wont get away with the shit he has in Toronto with those coaches out there. he will have to play , every day! or fuck right off.

time for the Raps to restart! with Masai? maybe! but I am sure the Raps will base their decision on some metric assessment from the experts on Masai's performance. I don't think Masai will come off well in any such assessment so we may likely see the end of M Ujiri as Raptor president, I am so pissed at him it isn't funny. I wanted to see him there for years but he let it get to his head

luckily the Raps have a nice young core that would have been real solid had we kept Valencunis. now we need a new young centre. we must start all over at centre. we have no need for Marc Gasol. let him go too..as well as Jeremy Lin. do not waste time with players on the bench who are useless, have no functional role to play

Leonard is the player that is truly pissing me off! doe he really think that people like him..or are going to like him from and with what he does, the way he carries on as a player. he is fucking useless. he is scouted, understood and exploited on the court and cant adjust his game. a waste of time Kawii Leonard..a reputation that has no depth. he cant win for the Raps, cant lead the Raps to the promised land. he was very neutralized by the Magic. but he did get his 25-26 points..which is all he is good for

Kyle Lowery has disappeared from the scoring. sad but Lowery has done a great deal for the Raps over the years and clearly his time with the team is coming to an end.

no doubt Lowery problems has to do with the coaching and how the team has gone this year. there is really no team there for the Raps after last year. too many players who were central are no longer there..their places occupied by strangers who have not blended into a team

did not Masai think of that when he kept trading away players..that he needed time to blend a team?

C. Boucher O. Anunoby we know who these 2 are: Boucher is a young Raptors project, Anunoby is another young Raptors project but much further along than Boucher
Anunoby is ill and out..and Boucher cant be used save in emergencies and blowouts by the Raps

J. Lin Lin is the first of 5 players the Raps cant use in the play offs. what the hell is he doing on the Raps earning money? he was useless in the seasonal games

E. Moreland
P. McCaw, M. Miller and who are these 4?
J. Loy

I have seen Macaw play. I don't know why..don't know his play, style and ability much so I cant say much..doh from what I saw he would not be useful on the playoff floor.

I don't have any clues about Miller, Moreland and Loy. but 6 players including Lin and Boucher are a whole lot you are unable to use on your team in tight conditions

and I have not looked at how they re using Lowery now with Leonard in the team..why Lowery isn't shooting and scoring points as usual

that's a very interesting development..but I have not been watching the Raptors since I got pissed about everything and Leonard in particular and stopped watching the Raptors play.

I watched all of 5 minutes of this playoff game and went elsewhere

tuff to swallow eh! skunt Leonard shud not have allowed D J Augustin the opportunity to shoot..such a clear one. he shud have fought off his scree and up in that space with Augustin

look here man! Fuck Kawii Leonard if you are a Toronto fan..and I walked away earlier..so I am not. he is ah giant Impse, a cry baby, narcissist and all round SUBJECTIVE..focused entirely on himself

take Kyrie Irving in Boston..another malcontent but a man of some human class. when the going gets real so does Kyrie regardless.

KYRIE PLAYED HIS ARSE OFF SATURDAY NIGHT AND PULLED THE WHOLE BOSTON TEAM WITH HIM... AND BOSTON SHUT DOWN INDIANA AND SET UP THEIR SERIES THE RIGHT WAY.

LEONARD SAID HE WAS GONG TO DO THE SAME THING IN TORONTO...RAISE HIS GAME IN THE PLAYOFFS. KYRIE SAID NO SUCH THING..JUST WENT OUT AND DID IT


this is a wasted season for the raptors. it is time for a rebuild!

1 chase Leonard out of Toronto
2 let Lowery go or reduce his role to bench play
3 build from the draft and other sources..like Africa and Europe directly
4 bring forth players like Siakan, Van Vleet and the youth
5 forget big stars unless they are real men..like Kyrie and Durant, Harden etc....not those guys exactly but players like them who have real professionalism about them
forget the guys like Leonard who could not play for Greg Poppovich. to me that was a real bad sign with Leonard. Leonard is the only player in 15-20 years who could not and did not shine with the Spurs under Pops

I have written off the Raptors this year. they go nowhere from here. Leonard is an arsehole. I hate guys like that. he does not even respect Toronto.

Prejudiced Leonard prolly sees Toronto as the boonies, a hick town where he can eff the dog, spend a season of recuperation and move on ready for the 'real thing' down in the states next season.

phuck him!

( As I said I don't hate the man as a person. I am happy that he is making millions and that one more Black man is not poor hungry and in the hands of the cops. bu I hate his attitude and outlook, his stinking backwardness and lack of professionalism.

you are not being paid peanuts. you have your lawyers etc getting the best deals for you. you are doing what you want, have organized the best for you in the situation. then you are supposed to go out and do your job..your real job not an impostor of it.

in that sense fuck Leonard again. Double!!.

what i am saying is that Leonard should play more..40 minutes. that is what I call raising his game for the play offs. he should score more, be tough, driving, fighting even if he has 4 fouls on his back. he should take on the tuff defensive assignments.
THAT IS WHAT LEADERSHIP IS ALL ABOUT! WHAT RAISING ONE'S GAME IS ALL ABOUT

THAT HE PLAYED JUST OVER HALF AN HOUR, THAT HIS ENERGY AND SCORING TOTALLY WAVERED AFTER A HOT START MEANS THAT LEONARD IS NOT FIT AT ALL..LOST HIS ENERGY AND COULD NOT GO ON.

THAT CAN ALSO MEAN WHAT I SAID; THAT LEONARD SEES THE RAPS AS THE BOONIES AND JUST DID NOT AND DOES NOT CARE TO BE PHYSICALLY READY AND AT HIS BEST FOR A TEAM HE IS LEAVING SOON REGARDLESS

leonard is not fit because he has not been playing hard all season long. he can barely make half an hour on the court
