    This is the year that I finally learned to just sit back and enjoy everything that LeBron does. He is going to drag this horrible team to another NBA Finals. It is unbelievable.

    I love how people my age can be so easily triggered on Facebook by anyone suggesting that LBJ is the greatest or that Steph is the best offensive player ever.

    The idea that MJ isn’t the best really upsets basketball fans that grew up watching him in the 90s.

    Rodney Hood is incredibly irrelevant. Simply hasn't been a quality player for more than a full season. He needs to reset his career playing heavy minutes on a bad team and figure out what he's good at again.

    Shouldn't Toronto have waited to see what LeBron does this summer?

    Why fire your coach for not being able to beat him if, idk, you don't have to anymore?

    I understand this logic, but this Cleveland team is not good. They just aren't. I saw them play this year and it was laughable. And it wasn't because it was the regular season and they just didn't care. They just are not very good, do not even have a fucking clue on the defensive end, and are completely reliant on the transcendent talent of one of the game's best ever players.

    Toronto should have won that series and instead they got completely embarrassed. Honestly, they should probably just rebuild at this point because the entire Eastern Conference is going to be dominated by the Celtics for the next decade with Philly and maybe Indy and/or the Bucks as possible perennial playoff teams depending on injuries and player development.

    Their window is closing really fast. The story of this season for them was how unexpectedly great their bench is but that never actually matters in the playoffs. And there is not a single guy coming off the bench who is really that exciting. Van Vleet is probably going to leave this summer. Siakam is good but what is ceiling if we are being honest? Anunoby is great too.

    If I were a Raptors fan though I would be feeling really uncomfortable about the long-term direction of this team. They are destined for the 40 win, first-round exit basketball equivalent of purgatory..
