Watch all of the Raptors games on TV, with my woman.
Unfortunately out of the playoffs this year.

Watch many West-Coast games as well, and Jokic is something special.
Excellent passer, can shoot from anywhere, not the best jumper for rebounds, but when he's in under the offensive hoop, he fights like a bulldog. Also cool as a cucumber in high-pressure situations.

Too bad Murray is injured, hope he's alright by the Olympics... hihihi.

What are your playoff predictions for the finalists ?
Me : Nets vs. Jazz, with the win going Jazzy.

Hey, I thought about the Raptors (and then of course the fact that Jokic is Serbian, Murray Canadian, the Slavs, Argentinians, Greeks Spaniards etc in the league) and regretted posting this in the US sports forum. I'm stuck in the old NBA days there lol. Your Raptors took the NBA by storm in 2019
One of Denver's best GMs Masai Ujiri went to Toronto and I think he did a lot of good for the franchise.

I think you're right about the Nets taking the East, and I just gotta go with my Nugs to take the West. Murray's injury was so sad to see (he's a great guy on top of being a great player), but MPJ has stepped up and the Nuggets have a really deep bench and developing team. I think Mitchell and CP3's injuries are going to hurt the Jazz/Suns.
Portland is going to be a grind--I don't see them shooting 3s at nearly 50% for the whole series, but we'll see (Nuggets are terrible at 3 point defense).

We can chat on here as it goes if you're interested.

Enjoy watching the playoffs w/ your lady!

2019 was a great ride !
Might not even get another sniff for 20 years, so glad that it went our way.

Thanks for Ujiri.

He's done a great job, but left fans scratching their heads when he let both Gasol and Ibaka go at the end of 2020.
The Raps got-of to a disastrous start this season, with no beef at center, staggered through losing man-games to Covid protocols, and never even had one home game for the whole season.

He seemed to put all of the teams eggs into the same basket, hoping without basis on potentially signing Giannis Antetokounmpo, who was lined-up to become a free-agent this next off-season.
But the 'Freak' signed a max extension deal during the season, so seems like a rather questionable strategy.

They've been hyping-up Ujiri's assistant GM all year, maybe preparing the ground-work for his leaving the team, as his contract is expiring at the end of these playoffs.

Will trade him back to you for MPJ : deal ?

LOL, definitely no deal. Guess I hadn't really followed what was going on w/ Toronto after they took the title. Sounds like a frustrating few years (know plenty about those, lol.)

Hope you have a good night!

It's official! First MVP in the Nuggests franchise history (wipes a tear from me eye)

Congratulations Nikola, couldn't have gone to a more deserving player.

Maybe it was this thread that put him over the top ? LoL !!

Hey !
Wait a sec !
What kind of voting machines did they use ? ....

LoL !!
Just teasing.

Gratzi to a well-deserving MVP, and the Nuggets fans.

Just noticed that the Jazz-Clips game isn't on TV tonight ?
We have like 13 specialty sports channels, and not one could put it on ?
Oh ! That's right : they're still promoting us new even more specialized special sports channels, for a small fee...

LOL! No one would believe you if you told em cause this is a conspiracy site too!

Thanks (4) Nothin

I watch all the games online on Volokit (I only have the most basic cable).

How annoying about all those channels and no playoffs.

Have a good one!

Phoenix are playing like a Sun on fire !!

We finally got last nights game on TV, halfway through the 3rd quarter.
You see : it's Canada, so Hockey kinda gets the priority.
And the same Sport's Network besides a hockey game on 4/5 channels, had the Blue-Jays on the 5th channel.
So they also had the contract for the basketball game, so it came on after basketball.

The other network had Euro 2016 highlights, sporty bloopers, French Open highlights, and Sportscenter on repeat.
The 2 French sporty channels had the tennis highlights, and the Hockey.

Will look into that Volokit thingy, thanks.

Maybe the Nugget fans will help them win tonight ?
More fun when it's close.

He fell apart like one of those sissy soccer players when they get flicked in the ear.

They brought a stretcher out for him after five minutes of him writhing around on the floor, hahaha. Then Jokic's brothers and Morris's bro got into it on twitter.
Seems like few players are hated more in the nba than those two Morris bros lol.
Love it, reminds me of the good ol nba days.

All it needed was Bill Laimbeer to hit the Morris brothers with a folding chair.

Just went back to see a game, it was so fantastic being back.
It's not 100% but it was nice to sit with everyone and just enjoy a game.

BTW. They played the national anthem and nobody kneeled and it was actually quite beautiful.
I don't think BB got too involved in it like NFL.

Fun! I was at the Nuggets/Rockets game on Saturday (last one I can go to due to new vaxxx mandates)

I think you're right that the nba (maybe Lakers' excluded) never got that woke.
