    Considering my MLB thread has all of 4 posts, I don't have high hopes for this one.

    That Kawhi shot was dramatic as hell. Game 7, buzzer beater, for the win, and it bounces on the rim a couple times for good measure

    Screw the playoffs, bring on the draft. :lol: Go Bulls. If you can't snag #1, #2 is just FINE. Poppa needs a real point guard.

    And will Portland continue to defend Steph Curry by leaving him wide open?

    The NBA Finals feature GSW and the Raps, the latter with home advantage.

    I can't even imagine how emotional the Raptors are (and their fanbase). They barely advanced past the semi-finals of their own conference, followed by beating the favorites to not only win their conference but possibly the NBA championship. No one would have anticipated this. What a Cinderella story.

    It has been 26 years since a Toronto-based team makes the championship round of any of the four major professional North American sports.

    I think it's going to be a good series. Toronto has a tough defensive minded team and a bona-fide superstar. It will probably go 6 or 7 games but I got to give the Warriors the edge (sorry Canada)

    That is true.

    Unfortunately, both MLS and CFL are greatly underappreciated. Both really need more love.

    Also if the Raptors win, that will mean the Leafs are the least successful member of their own ownership group post 1967

    I think it will be a lot harder for the Raptors to win if a (healthy) Durant comes back at some point during the series.

    I'm pretty much being the barer of bad news (from the perspective of a Raptors fan), but if Golden State can beat them when

    1) they're playing in Toronto
    2) Kevin Durant wasn't there (and even Stephen Curry was widely speculated to be playing while injured)

    then that is really not a good sign for the rest of the series. Kevin Durant has already been cleared for practice again and they said he might even be ready for game 3. Obviously, anything can happen but from the looks of it, this wasn't really a game the Raptors could afford to lose.

    Yeah, the talking heads this morning were all saying that this loss will probably cost them Kawhi Leonard. I know they have to talk about something, but they're probably right.
