I'm sick of Fizdale already...this season should be about developing the young guys, not giving more minutes to 2nd & 3rd tier cats who'll be gone by the trading deadline.


But it's not all on Fizdale...he's saddled with a poorly contructed roster, thanks to Mills and Perry...Dumb and Dumber.

You've been rightly beating this player development drum, uptown. I haven't been following the season closely yet, but Fiz is deluding himself if he thinks he's in "win now" mode.

Siakim was on fire last night, but I fear the Raptors could be in trouble. Ibaka has a sprained ankle and Lowry a small fracture in his thumb AND we're up against the Lakers and Clippers next. Could be tense.

Raptors beat the Lakers last night without Ibaka and Lowry. Wow!! I hope they can do it again tonight.

I didn't see the game but depth is a concern for LAL.

Plus, Vanvleet went off. Happens all the time -- an ordinary player playing extraordinary against the Lakers.

LOL @ Mills (Dolan's butt-boy) and Perry trying to make Fizdale the fall guy. Fiz hasn't been perfect, but he didn't put this roster together....a roster with 2nd/3rd tier players, too many forwards, no true PG and Julius Randle as the centerpiece on offense. Are you kidding me?????????

To paraphrase a Parcells analogy, Fiz has been making meals with Mills' and Dolan's groceries.

Steve Mills is shifting blame and trying to cover his ass....that's how things are run at MSG, but it might not work this time.

What a great win for the Raptors last night! Where was Embiid?? He was completely off his game last night. The Raptors are still without Lowry and Ibaka and still pulling off the wins! Awesome!

Toronto's success is a testament to Masai Ujuri and their player development. I watched them destroy my Knicks last night....I expected Siakam to take that next step, but OG Anunoby & Chris Boucher? Where did Ujuri find those cats?

The hot rumor has the Knicks throwing a boatload of money at Masai Ujuri when his contract is up. I'd tell Masai to reject NY and stay where he is. Knicks are a horribly run organization with one of the worst owners in pro sports. James Dolan is the Dan Snyder of the NBA.

I've heard that rumor around Ujuri and NY too. From what I've read he is very happy here and his family seem to like it here too. Although, money talks, so anything is possible. The Raptors are having another great season so far and our bench is off the wall! We are leading in many cateogries, however, ESPN doesn't even consider the Raps in the top 10 teams this year, but you know what I say to them (Fu*k you). We have some tough games coming up soon, but Ibaka and Lowry will be back, so hopefully we can keep the momentum going. Big props to Fred Van Vleet too. This guy is amazing.

"You never realise how goood you've got it until it's gone"

That's what would happen to Masai if he decided to take Dolan's millions to run this dumpster fire in NY. Sometimes there's money you have to turn down....Ujuri would be a damn fool to work for one of the worst owners in pro sports.

Damn, the Mavericks took it to the big, bad Lakers. Doncic is the TRUTH.

Embiid laid an egg in Toronto. It will never happen again. Brett
Brown is a coaching enigma at times.

LeBron is tearing shit up right now. I hope he doesn't burn out

before the playoffs.
