    I was/am more scared of Philly than Toronto but I expected more from them. They are a veteran team with a top 5 player. This showing tonight is unacceptable. Philly is going at the rim at will and only when Boban came in mainly, did Toronto make a comeback.


    Nurse is really not a good coach.

    Daily Reminder:

    Morey should have offered 12 first-round picks for Jimmy Butler.

    Doris: "God speed Kevin Durant, heal quickly, we wanna watch you continue that incredible run you've been on "

    Translation- I hope the Rockets lose, Go Worriers. Rally around KD and he will be back for WCFs and go on to another ring-chasing title.

    Philly is hoping to contain kawhi leonard which is easier said than done. Ask LeBron if kawli can go!

    So the guys who didn't perform and or star players came through to force a game 7, we simply have to do the same.

    Without Butler this series is a 4-0 for the Raptors

    I want Philly to win this series...I feel like Philly-Milwaukee would be far more exciting than Milwaukee-Toronto

    Philly just has more talent than Toronto, they have a higher ceiling...that should make things interesting vs the Bucks...I also love watching Philly play at home, I love their fans...they get so into the game which makes for a fun atmosphere

    Toronto is just Kawhi, a little bit of Siakam, and then a bunch of dudes...their bench has been horrific...no thanks, give me Philly-Milwaukee

    Brett Brown to be fired if Sixers lose?

    https://www.nytimes.com/2019/05/11/...ggets-game-7.html?smid=tw-nytsports&smtyp=cur

    Beyond the uncertain fates of Butler, Harris and the sharpshooting J.J. Redick, rumblings in league coaching circles have grown louder by the day that 76ers Coach Brett Brown needs an N.B.A. finals berth to keep his job. Brown, I’m told, has little chance of surviving a second-round exit.

    Lmao the Foster Brothers, if i'm the Raptors i start touching my balls (knock on wood) from the moment i read this till the game is over.

    I guess the league wants Giannis against Embiid and Denver to be in the conference finals over Portland...
