I'm sick of the Toronto Raptors, but I'm even more sick of the borderline rail birds that profess to love the NBA but have no real affiliation with any team unless it's the team that's beating up the Raptors of course. If you're offended about this characterization then I'm talking about YOU. Yes YOU the guy who never says a peep when the Raptors reel off 7 straight wins in the regular season or beats a decent Bucks team in the first round. The guy who has all the answers and criticisms during the playoffs and then hibernates for the rest of the year. If you're not a die hard Raptor fan I simply don't want to talk Raptors basketball with you, sorry. If I hear one more generic comment about how Derozen and Lowry suck in the playoffs I'm going to slit my wrist. A real Raptor fan knows it's common place for these guys to disappear and not the the exception. I've said it many times before, being a Raptor fan is taxing, it's exhausting, it…

Ok boys this is game day! I'm feeling nervous, this is like the show down with the school bully and it's almost home time. I need to make some predictions so I can say "I told you so" when they happen.

First off this is not a series we can win by simply playing well, we need a combination of Cleveland not playing optimal basketball and us playing really well or Raptors playing extremely elite basketball which we have not seen for more than 2 consecutive quarters in my opinion. We have to respect this team, they are the defending champions and any stubborn decisions from Casey will cost us, we can't be too proud to try anything against this team. Sadly I don't see Casey suddenly seeing the light and becoming a great in game strategist over night.

I know how to guard Lebron James wether you like it or not we need to make Lebron a scorer and let him eat, eat a lot. Do not I repeat do not throw double teams at him, he is an elite passer who will pick us apart an…
Everybody is expecting an epic rant, a scorched earth, vein popping soliloquy about last nights loss. Well folks you're not getting one. My mind is in a good place I have a girl I like, I just haven't told her yet. My family is happy and healthy and God damn it Gaceru don't reduce this moment to everything in your life, there is so much more beauty and struggle to come. This loss was so bad I'm not angry I'm reflective, I'm thinking about all the times in my life something terrible happened and it turned out to be exactly what I needed to invoke change. We often know what we need to do, but it's usually the thing we're most afraid of. Deep down we knew we weren't a championship team, I think deep down we knew we weren't even a championship contender. There are many reasons but the main reason is our best players are outplayed by the other teams best players pretty much every series. I don't like to toot my own horn (unless nobody is home, an…

DONALD DUCK!

So I am really starting to like this Donald Sterling Character.  I think we should listen with open minds to what he has to say, a good portion of it is probably true, or at least "the what we tell our parents" truth about how race, class and Americas nefarious past plays out in the National Basketball Association. I mean is has got to be curios paradox.  On one had you're a multimillionaire your in the 92nd percentile of all earners in the U.S yet as collective group still answer to an overwhelming number of similar looking bosses and owners.  Donald Sterling is doing what Donald Sterling has probably done his whole life when put in to a corner. Fight!. He fought in the late 50's when Jews had limited opportunities, changed his given last name of Tokowitz toSterling and bought a 26 unit apartment building in Beverly Hills.  He fought when discrimination based law suits were brought to him in 2006 and…
