I think they're the only team is the NBA built exactly for what it takes to beat the Warriors.



They aren't some vast underdogs here folks. I can see them being able to take Golden State.


Also if most didn't see the Cavs sweeping especially after Lowry went down then I don't know wtf else to say

I think Cavs rather start the ECF earlier then WCF, to get more time for the finals.

4/1 underdogs to beat GSW. Pretty sizeable.

Dude. They added KD and McGee...

but I get it. I too believe something can happen, only because of how godly LeBron is. Unbelievable dude.

All trolling aside, it really is a big advantage.

It's one seven game series and you've got the best player in the world. Can't hate the odds that much.

In fact... why doesn't he start in front of Zaza?

If Raptors re-sign Lowry they will probably go after Rudy Gay to add a third scoring option. Of course it will make their already last in the league assists stay in the basement with another ISO guy, but if they keep Lowry they are going to have to ride and die with their iso offense.

If Lowry leaves then I think you blow it up. Let Ibaka walk and see how you can build around Derozan and JV.

But in the end the Raptors will probably do something stupid because they dont want to be perceived on swinging and missing on Ibaka, so lowry will walk and Ibaka gets overpaid. They then struggle to win 42 games next year.
