Not the way you wanted it to end, obviously. But…
A 48 win season…
A playoff appearance (5th seed!)…
Barnes=Rookie of the Year
Siakam: potential All NBA…?
Plenty to build on & tweak for Ujiri/Webster; plenty for the future for the fans – 9:38 PM

The Raptors didn’t have enough shooting (and nowhere close once VanVleet went down), a viable backup PG or a real C. Impressive season, but lots of work to be done. Boucher and Thad Young UFA but lots of space under tax to bring 1 or both back and use MLE. Trades also possible. – 9:32 PM

Lots of talk about how Raps were better without FVV. Injured and slowed, I get it. And he’s been shooting poorly because of it, I suspect. But 3-20 from 3 is not something that can lead to a win. And that’s where Fred could likely help. – 8:38 PM

Nice quick pre-game sessions with Nick Nurse and Doc Rivers, which was most welcome.
No news, just there’ll be no Fred VanVleet (like that was a possibility) – 6:00 PM
